Christina Applegate in Monique Lhuillier at the SAGs: fug or just ok?

Christina Applegate was nominated for lead actress in a comedy, which of course went to Phoebe Waller Bridge. As I always mention when covering her, watch Dead to Me on Netflix! It’s highly entertaining and you won’t be able to resist binging it. She gave a good performance of a damaged person working through their sh-t. It’s also a nice look at female friendship. Christina was looking dowdy in this abstract floral print Monique Lhuillier, which looked worse on camera actually. This is quite dated and frumpy looking. The skirt might be ok with a sleeker solid color top, but the 70s secretary blouse brings it firmly into fug territory. Sometimes I wonder if celebrities get strong armed by their stylists, if they don’t know any better, or if they just don’t care. I think in Christina’s case she knows how this looks and she’s trying to own it, but not quite succeeding. Her star and moon earrings are really cool.


Elisabeth Moss was in pepto pink Monique Lhuillier and she’s similarly drowning in frumpy fabric from another era. Again, the skirt is perfectly fine but the matchy top and ruffled neckline put it over the top. She’s using her sunny disposition to try to make the best of a bad situation.



Elisabeth’s costar Madeline Brewer got the best Lhuillier, which is truly not saying much. Why are tiered ruffle skirts making a comeback? There were so many of them last night. That said, at least the bodice is fitted and she’s not covered head to toe in blue polka dot tulle. I dislike this trend of little-to-no eye makeup.

      The first 2 MIGHT be ok… on other people. The third aint so bad. If you’re Cinderella.

    • Eliza_ says:

      Anna W is obviously just encouraging recycling old ideas and nothing new. Because the dresses are either the same ol same or 70s/80s dynasty hell

    Oh my. I scrolled down to see the other dresses and it’s just eye sore after eye sore. Makes JAnnistons dress look great.

    These looks are BREATH-TAKING!!!!!!!!!

  4. Chica71 says:

    Shorten the hemline and add a black Blazer and Christina’s outfit is work ready.

  5. Tanguerita says:

    why does Brewer’s make-up artist hate her so much?

  6. Lena says:

    70s secretary blouse – what a Perfect description! Monique L was going full frump last night. Not too many women could wear these well.

    I actually like Madeline Brewer’s dress. It’s pretty and light and the color is a nice wake-up on the red carpet. I can get past the ruffles because the dress fits well and she wears it well. Don’t get the make-up at all though.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Her lipstick color, though! That’s the kind of thing you experiment with in junior high & think it looks great.

  8. Elenor says:

    NOT a fan of this ruffle – poofy trend.

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    These looks could win best in horror.

    I don’t care for any of these, though Christina’s might have been better in a solid. Her makeup seems a bit bright too.
    I loved Dead To Me though, I binged the whole thing in like 2 days, and she’s really great in the show. I wish it would get more attention.

  11. DragonWise says:

    With a totally different bodice and some bling, Christina’s dress could work–I like the print. She is such a pretty lady.

    I hate tiered ruffles, but I love that aqua color on Madeline. That lipstick color hurts my feelings, though!

    OMG! That dress is horrible.
