Nicole Kidman wore Armani for the brief SAG Awards: lovely or blah?


The SAG Awards were held last night. The actual “handing out of awards” happened virtually, over low-quality Zooms and video link-ups around the world. The ceremony was a brief one-hour long and it was pretty chill. I’m honestly surprised that more people didn’t just wear pajamas or sweats, but a lot of women did dress up, like Nicole Kidman. Kidman was nominated for her work in The Undoing (she did not win). She did a rather great backyard photoshoot in this lovely Armani look. Her pandemic/backyard style is better than her red carpet style in recent years, I have to say.



Cate Blanchett wore Givenchy and she really had her hair and makeup done! These people are so extra!


Vanessa Kirby in what looks like McQueen, although it’s actually Givenchy. She’s very much a fashionista, but I’m still not going to watch that movie where she loses a baby (that’s what she was nominated for).


Mindy Kaling in Alex Perry. One of my favorite looks of the evening.

Cynthia Erivo in McQueen. I’m not in love with this dress, but she seems to love it, so be it. I feel like it’s too structured and the bust is too… something. Dated? The top part is ‘90s and the bottom is… prairie.

    It’s a very pretty dress; just not feeling it on Nicole.

    Blanchette’s look is striking.

    Mindy looks really good

    • yeperz says:

      I believe Nicole has worn this before, but it’s Spring appropriate & colors suit her. It’s fine.

  2. Stacy Dresden says:

    Everyone is looking really good except I hate that Nicole is looking too tight in the face. I would have loved to see her age more naturally.

    • Shannon says:

      I agree. I noticed the tell-take signs of a face lift (strange contour around her jaw line, ears looking weird) on her about 2 years ago and it made me sad. But I guess she was tired about people making fun of her Botox/filler overuse. You can only use those injectibles to stave off the sagging of aging for so long.

      I’m sure the beautiful women of Hollywood feel like they can never win – if they go natural all people can talk about is their fading beauty, and if they tweak and nip and tuck they have a huge risk of looking weird or worse. The only aging ladies that are lauded are the lucky few who’ve had some great, subtle work done or those ladies who’ve never traded on their looks so no one scrutinizes them as they age.

        “But I guess she was tired about people making fun of her Botox/filler overuse.”

        I wonder if women in Hollywood in 2021 are ever told: “Listen, you’re looking old. A facelift and fillers are just what you need.” Because honestly, it almost never looks good. Who is encourage beautiful women to ruin themselves with these procedures and why are they believing them?

    • Escondista says:

      Nicole’s hair is also the same color as apple juice.

  3. Hollah says:

    I think Nicole’s dress would photograph better at a different time of day. She’s wearing a soft color palette but it’s being shot in harsh bright light and next to bright greens. If she’d done this shoot at sunset with soft glowing light, I think her dress would be quite lovely.

    • Chartreuse says:

      Yeah that’s what I thought. Bright, harsh sunshine wasn’t right. and lack of contrast between hair, skin, dress, just washes her right out. Darker shots showed the detail of the dress but it doesn’t work for me

      • Chaine says:

        Same. She is so pale that IMO she needs a rich color palette like she wore in the 90’s—chartreuse, dark violets, burgundies. I know those colors are probably dated now, but what she wears recently are always very bland and wash her out.

  4. Lauren says:

    Mindy looks just wow! That is such a gorgeous color on her and the fit is perfect! I like Nichole’s hairdo, her dress is cute, nothing special. Vanessa’s dress, I like the top part, the skirt is super boring, Cate is beautiful and while I’m not crazy about Cynthia’s dress.

  5. Lucy2 says:

    I like all of these.

  6. duchess of hazard says:

    I think if Kidman’s hair was brighter (red) or darker (brunette) which makes her eyes pop and makes her complexion appear that faint golden tint (you can see it, even though she’s pale) the dress would have looked a bit better on her. The dress needed more contrast.

    • lucy2 says:

      I’ve always thought the darker red hair was stunning on her, but she seems happy with blond in recent years.

  7. Liz version 700 says:

    These weee all cool looks but Mindy holy cow she looks amazing!!!!!!

  8. Kebbie says:

    That picture of Cate Blanchett is from a few days ago, not last night. Her top in that picture is Haider Ackermann.

    This was her Givenchy SAG Awards look from last night-

  9. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    A lot of architecture on this page, except maybe Kidman. She’s obviously the landscaping. She looks better than her red carpet fiascos. The rest are fine. I really like Cynthia’s look, but I have an aversion to sculpted mashed bewbs. If you’re going to sculpt, enhance. Whatever the look, never mash. Even during corset days, you didn’t mash, you pushed and lifted. Like a waterfall of bewbage haha.

    Mindy needs to stop messing with her face.

  11. Case says:

    I love Nicole’s dress, actually. I love long-sleeved gowns and the beading is beautiful.

  12. Reece says:

    Flower nipples. I can’t unsee them. It’s beautiful though.

    I expect no less from the Queen. Gorgeous as always!
    In fact I love both Givenchy looks.

  13. Bibi says:

    I think it’s a beautiful dress and it looks really nice and pretty on Nicole. Kate B is always extra and her fashion choices are always so right for her. She must know what she wants because there’s always something different and very fashion about it. It’s never plain.

  14. Kim says:

    The lone dissenting voice. Nicole Kidman’s dress is blah. I enjoyed all the rest, including Cynthia Erivo.

    How long will/can Nicole Kidman go for the young ingenue look? It’s quite sad.

    • dj says:

      @ Kim. Agreed about Nicole’s dress would be pretty enough on someone not so washed out (hair with skin combined). IMHO this ingenue look does not work on Nicole. She needs to be in color with classic lines or put some color in her hair. She seems to be dressing in the colours or lack thereof inwhat might have looked good on her when her hair was darker red.

  15. pollyv says:

    Mindy’s dress is a great color on her. I hate what she did to her face a few years ago. She was so much cuter before she started messing around.

    • Kebbie says:

      She got like lip implants or did something weird around her mouth and chin. It was so noticeable when she did it on The Mindy Project. I still love her, but yeah, she looked so much better before.

  16. Bella says:

    I love, love Vanessa and Mindy’s outfit! They look gorgeous. Nicole always gets it wrong. Drab dress, hair and makeup. She needs to get a different stylist!

  17. Aubrey says:

    best dressed.
