On the red carpet: Kerry Washington, Salma Hayek, Taraji P Henson, Thandie Newton

Kerry Washington looked demure in a white Roberto Cavalli gown to the Screen Actors Guild Awards. 

The sequins form leopard spots, which is very Cavalli and would look awful in colour.

How fun is Salma Hayek’s SAG Awards gown? A touch too much, maybe? Something needs to be either toned down or taken away. Too many details spoil the Gucci dress.

Taraji P Henson chose Reem Acra for the same event. She’s a little lady and this is a big dress, but one that’s been perfectly fitted. Even the sequinned sheer bodice is tasteful enough.

Thandie Newton’s SAG Awards dress is adorable. Birds, plumed horses, a ferris wheel... how many designers choose to draw the eye with a picture over a plunging neckline?
