Cynthia Erivo in Schiaparelli at the SAGs: impressive and bold?

Cynthia Erivo is the only woman of color nominated in an acting category at this year’s Academy Awards. That category is surely going to Renee Zellweger, which is unfortunate. Cynthia always brings over the top fashion so I’m looking forward to seeing what she’ll wear to the Oscars. Last night she was in this incredible red and fuschia Schiaparelli gown with a tight gathered bodice and an absolutely huge skirt with gathered poofs. This looks like Valentino, right? I appreciate how the tiny top contrasts with that giant skirt. How do you even sit in this?


Anna Paquin was also in red, in a crimson Carolina Herrera with a formfitting bodice. This has those tiered ruffles which are coming back, but only on one side of the skirt. This is striking and I like it. During her presentation of The Irishman Anna talked more than she seemed to that entire movie. That was such a bro gangster film.



Danai Gurira was a bombshell in Mugler. This mermaid dress fits her like a glove and shows the perfect amount of cleavage. Look at the detailed piecework on the front. I love her necklace!

Check out her intricate braid.

Jennifer Garner was in a red Dolce & Gabbana with spaghetti straps and a full skirt. This is more glamorous than we usually see from her as she typically wears staid black and white looks. She definitely stood out, for her.

    Couldn’t Jen Garner do something – anything! – with her hair?? Can’t tell if the dress is good or bad – the limp hair is too distracting.

    Ok – I looked again. Pretty sure dress is bad.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      It’s very waspy 80’s prom.

    • shells_bells says:

      I really don’t like spaghetti straps on formal gowns. It’s very “twee”. This combined with those earrings and her hair makes her look like she’s going to her junior or senior prom.

      • josephine says:

        Totally agree about those straps. Clipping them up would have improved the dress quite a bit.

    • stormsmama says:

      Jennifer is gorgeous with an amazing body
      but here she looks like she just came from a beach volleyball game on the beach
      after a day at the beach
      Her center part is awful-
      its like her beach hair got a rinse in beach shower and they just center parted it and said “good enough”
      her dress would be soooo pretty if this was 1991

    • Diane says:

      Agree about Jen Garner’s hair and always feel that way about Jen Aniston’s hair.

    • Kate says:

      I like her hair. I think she normally does formal updo’s and this looks more contemporary and youthful.

  2. ChillyWilly says:

    oh wow, Danai looks out of this world hot! That hair is so good and that dress! And that body! 😻

  3. Gabby says:

    Cynthia Erivo is one of the few women that could pull off this dress, her fashion this awards season has been phenomenal. This look is stunning, as is Danai Gurira, wow!
    Jennifer and Anna both look lovely as well, all of these ladies chose a red that is flattering and beautiful. Anna’s dress looks tight in the bosom, a common flaw in strapless looks that I dislike, but overall, pretty.

    • Wasabi says:

      Yes, yes and yes, Cynthia Erivo looks stunning in her dress. But also… Her. Arms!!! ❤️❤️❤️

  4. Joanna says:

    Cynthia has great arms, I wish mine looked like that. Dana’s body is banging and the dress is very flattering. The other ladies look nice too.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    Danai! Wow.
    I like all of these but Cynthia’s is so huge.

  6. josephine says:

    Red is Anna’s color. It looks wonderful on her pale skin. I was distracted by the skinny straps on Garner’s dress – I think it would have looked nicer with thicker straps.

    And as mentioned above, Danai Gurira is incredible, utter perfection.

  7. Lena says:

    Love ALL these red dresses. When you look at them up close they all had interesting detailing too. I disagree though about Danai‘s cleavage -it hit at the boobs look smooshed spot. But it was my favorite dress here. People have accused (?) JGarner or having a boob job but it looks like she has just been wearing padded bras (or has gotten them taken out).

  8. Marianne Hord says:

    I though jennifer garner’s dress looked like a prom dress from the 90s.

  9. Estelle says:

    Each of these ladies totally own and rock their dresses.

    Every time I see Jennifer Garner I shake my head and wonder at the stunning stupidity of Ben Affleck.

    • Yup, Me says:

      That’s interesting because I’ve found her exhausting. She seems like the type who enfeebles the people around her. I have a friend who is a constant go go go mom; she talks really fast and she’s always engaged in some kind of activity for her kids and like Jennifer, I just find her exhausting. It doesn’t seem like it should take the amount of energy she uses to do what she does. She’s doing what pretty much every other mom is doing all day every day, she just manages to make it LOOK, SOUND, AND FEEL like a ton of work. That is Jennifer’s entire vibe to me.

  10. Kk2 says:

    This post makes a good argument for rocking red- they all look really nice. Even the dresses that are nothing special from a design point of view are really flattering bc of the color. I don’t like the straight across neckline of Garner’s dress. A high neck or vneck would have looked nicer. I think danai is my favorite but they all look good.

  11. Charfromdarock says:

    Cynthia looks gorgeous but how does she sit or go to the bathroom in this dress?

    Danai looks amazing! Absolute knockout.

  12. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Good page of looks.

  13. Molly says:

    Danai’s necklace looks like it’s made of infinity stones. Love it!

  14. Sara says:

    I think Stephen Moyer’s and Anna Paquin’s tops are both a bit tight. I can see some of Stephen’s chest hair, and I really wasn’t trying too, lol. They look happy, though.
