The “little” awards show that could brought some big style statements! Nestled between the Globes and the Oscars, the SAG awards often comes and goes with little fanfare but that did not stop the ladies from giving us a burst of color on the red carpet. Check out my favorites below!
Camila Alves rarely disappoints and this red carpet was no different. Ms. McConaughey wowed with this sweetheart design in the evening’s popular jewel tone. I am loving her hair as of late, the highlights really compliment her skin and she’s been hitting it out of the park with complimentary makeup looks!
BLF fave Dascha Polanco (no, really, she is the highest searched name on this site!) absolutely wowed in white lace. Opting for a high neckline and long sleeves, Polanco let her back do the talking in what would normally be a high-risk choice. Lace has not fared well on the red carpet but pair it with Dascha’s curves and you can never lose! And speaking of winning, Orange is The New Black continues its awards tear taking home the awards for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series (the incomparable Uzo Aduba) and Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Shut it down ladies!
And who is once again shutting down the red carpet? None other than Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab! Really, we should all just go home. This look is without flaw.
What were your favorite red carpet looks so far?
The carpet may have been all colors, but the ladies were white hot for the weekend’s awards celebrations! There was no shortage of color, skin ans sexy in this week’s lineup, check out the looks below:
BLF fave Dascha Polanco rocked the Heineken-sponsored green-carpet with this red-hot number at the Latin Grammy’s!
Abandoning her grey locs for a more classic style, Polanco let her curves be the star in this simple silhouette with minimal makeup and jewelry.
Model Mauza Antonio brought a well-needed pop of color to the carpet with her leggy ensemble:
This is normally not my favorite color but she rocked it! The peek-a-boo slits keep it sexy without being pageant-y. Love!
And *literally* bringing up the rear on the green carpet was Rocsi Diaz!
I absolutely cannot say enough about how enamored I was with this dress! It allows me to forgive her for this next misstep…
..later this week at the AMA’s. I’m not quite sure what she was going for here. It’s a bit too youthful, I would have liked it more on Zendaya or Ariana Grande.
On the other hand, Garcelle Beauvais shows the ladies how to keep it grown and sexy.
I have no idea why she is attending but I sure am glad she did! SPEAKING of grown and sexy..
Jennifer Lopez is 44.
J-Lo. Is. Forty. FOUR.

How about you? What were your favorite looks on the red carpet this week?
“Orange Is the New Black” star Dascha Polanco took us all for surprise when she debuted her new grey-to-purple ombre hair color on the red carpet at Fashion Week!
Dascha told Latina Magazine, “You know, I like to take risks and play with my hair,” when asked on the carpet. “It’s the time to do it, so why not?”, Polanco took to her Instagram to ask her fans what they thought of her new ‘do.
What do you think?
Festivals, premiers and award shows, oh my!! The ladies gave us all sorts of inspiration for our next rooftop event with their red-carpet ensembles last week. Scroll for my faves!
Laura Govan slayed this hard-to-pull-off silk jumpsuit at Russell Simmons’s All Def Comedy Jam. Sleek hair, gold sandals and minimal accessories completed the look.
Tatiana Ali paired this summer’s soft pant trend with a fitted blazer and a pop of color in her crop top and heels at the New York premiere of Comeback Dad. I just copped a pair from NY & Co and I can’t wait to see how many fun ways I can wear them!
I have no idea what red carpet this is. I just love Dascha Polanco.
And rounding out the crop of red-carpet stunners is Adrienne Bailon in a Costello Couture frock at the BET Awards! Love, love love the silhouette!
What have been your favorite looks so far this week?
Congratulations to the ground-breaking cast of Orange is the New Black on your Critic’s Choice award for Best Comedy Series!!
