Mandy Moore in Ralph Lauren at the SAG Awards: perfect or poorly cut?

Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson from This is Us all had on shades of cobalt at the SAGs last night. Mandy was the best dressed, in my opinion, in this sequin Ralph Lauren slip dress with spaghetti straps. From some angles I didn’t like this and thought it fit her oddly but when I had a chance to see it on camera I loved it. The color is amazing.

This is Us won for Ensemble in a Drama Series and Sterling K Brown won for Male Actor in a Drama Series.


In contrast, Chrissy Metz was in a very fug tiered ruffled Kate Spade gown with clusters of flowers on the sleeve and coming down her boob area. Metz has worn some really lovely gowns on the red carpet. It’s not an issue of her size or her taste, this is just a lousy dress. She should work with a designer like Christian Siriano or Tadashi Shoji.



Susan Kelechi Watson is in Rubin Singer, in a gown that looks like so many others we’ve seen on the red carpet. That said, the detailing on this is exquisite and it fits her like a glove. She looks incredible.



I’m including Glow’s Betty Gilpin, in an impressing deep green spaghetti strap Rodarte featuring a lace belt that just cinched her figure. It flattered her perfectly. Over the weekend I watched the first episode of American Gods, which features Gilpin. It didn’t pull me in enough to want to finish the series but I like her so much as an actres. She has range.

    I’m LOVING Mandy’s hair/brows/makeup…IT’S PERFECT and that color is one of my FAVORITE COLORS IN THE WORLD….and everyone looks beautiful in it…though I do agree with you regarding Chrissy!!!

  2. BlanktFort says:

    Sometimes I forget how very, very pretty Mandy. Like she is gorgeous, she’s got a rocking body, but also, she’s just SO pretty.

  3. Adele Dazeem says:

    Came here to say I’m a longtime Mandy Moore fan and she looks amazing!! Maybe the cut is less figure hugging but the color is sublime, her hair and makeup are perfect, love the return of the 90s style, go Mandy!!

  4. Beth says:

    Mandy Moores dress is completely basic, but I love blue, and the bright color makes it look pretty, better than if it was basic and boring black or red. She looks beautiful. I love the blue dress on Susan too

    • gabbie says:

      mte, basic boring dress. i think it looks like a prom color.

    • carol says:

      I think blue, especially the color blue these ladies are wearing, is a very difficult color to wear IMO. I don’t like any of the blue dresses at all – maybe if they were in a different color.

      LOVE Betty’s dress.

      And yes, Mandy Moore is gorgeous!

      • Amy says:

        I don’t think the color looks particularly good on any of them but I think Mandy Moore pulls it off the best.

        I wish the lace belt on the green dress was actually at her waist.

  5. Mar says:

    Yes Mandy! Yes!

  6. Nicole says:

    Also a longtime Mandy Moore fan (music too) and she looked stunning. Simple and effortless.
    Can we please talk about how Sterling is yet again the first man of color to win the award he got last night? I mean it’s ridiculous and shameful.
    I love that This is Us won. I thought they had the better season and they should’ve been nominated last year too.

  7. Pix says:

    I love Gilpin too! I’m sorry to say she needed a dress with more support up top.

  8. Erinn says:

    Susan looks AMAZING. I really like the color of Mandy’s dress as well – it’s such a bright, eye catching blue that if the dress was less simple, I think it’d be overwhelming.

  9. Esmom says:

    Of the blue gowns, I actually like Chrissy’s the best. She looks lovely. And Betty’s would be a home run imo if only the bodice was a bit less droopy.

  10. BaBaDook says:

    Listen, I’m a plus sized lady and they did Chrissy Metz wrong here. The friggen shoulder ruffles.

  11. tracking says:

    These shades of blue and teal are so, so beautiful.

  12. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Mandy looked really effortless and California cool. I liked it. Bett Gilpin’s dress looks weird at the waist. It’s a drop waist and it makes her torso looked oddly long. It also makes the bust seem droppy.

  13. Oliviajoy1995 says:

    LOVE Mandy’s dress! Very simple but elegant and she looks AMAZING in it.

  14. broodytrudy says:

    I don’t know where Lucy’s comment went but it’s odd we’re allowed to talk about Goop’s dangerous diet habits, Alison’s “skeletal frame”, and Giselle/Brady/Posh’s general bizarre-ness around food, but not mention Chrissy’s weight? Sure.

    • Linda says:

      I agree. As someone who lost 80 pounds 9 years ago I will say from experience at 63 yo now I am doing so much better than I was . There is too skinny and there is obese. If people judge 1 the other should also be fair game .

  15. Laura Dawe says:

    Mandy is gorgeous!!!

  16. lucy2 says:

    I love the blue color on all 3 ladies, and Susan and Mandy’s dresses are both nice – but then again I’m always up for a simple, classic line gown in a bold color.
    Chrissy’s just has too much going on.

  17. Jen says:

    It’s so great to see all the love for Mandy and to know that there are other longtime fans! I’ve always had a soft spot for her, and it’s wonderful to see her succeed with This is Us. Anyway, I really liked her whole look – simple but lovely.

  18. Happy21 says:

    In my opinion, Mandy Moore is one of the most beautiful women in the world (I’ve ever seen) so I’m going to say she looks freaking ah-mazing!

  19. JEM says:

    Mandy Moore looks fabulous in almost everything she wears on the red carpet. I love her whole look from last night – the hair is amazing!

  20. MamaHoneyBadger says:

    Susan Kelechi Watson is one of the most beautiful actresses on TV but that styling does her no favors.

  21. benchwarmer says:

    I love Mandy’s hair. The makeup although pretty is not in the right color family for that dress. I love natural looking makeup but this choice just wasn’t bold enough for the awards. I want to see a dramatic eye or lip. She could have done any number of cool toned pinks or even fuschia lip. Dress wise I like Chrissy’s the best in this line-up. And I LOVE Chrissy’s makeup. She got the memo on the color palette that compliments blue. I really like the flowers adorning her dress and the ruffle layers.

  22. Ozogirl says:

    OMG…Chrissy…that looks like a bad prom dress. Love the color on her, but there’s too much going on there with the tiers and flowers going down the side.

    Mandy’s hair and makeup is perfect…the dress is…okay. It doesn’t do much for her in the chest area.

  23. Pandy says:

    Chrissy looks terrible. And since I commented that I thought Allison Williams looks unhealthy at the SAGs, I will say the say thing for Chrissy. She looks unhealthy as well. Susan’s dress is perfection. Wow.

  24. serena says:

    Oh dear, I feel bad for Chrissy Metz having to wear that fugly dress. Who on earth would think of a dress made of ruffles?

  25. Bailie says:

    Poor Chrissy Metz, it must be so hard to carry that much weight around.
    Her knees must be killing her, not to mention how much pressure her internal organs must be under.
    I wish her the best, life is probably difficult for her with so much extra weight.
    I’m glad she found success on a great show.
    Good luck to her!

  26. Nikki says:

    Susan Watson’s gown is like Marilyn Monroe’s in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, except a different color. I LOVE Mandy Moore’s entire look: gorgeous!

  27. Anare says:

    Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson look gorgeous in that color. Granted Metz’s gown was over-worked but the color was stunning.

  28. Dee says:

    Mandy is seriously sooo pretty. And so underrated. I looove this shade of blue, works on almost anyone.
