2008 Screen Actors Guild awards – the red carpet
After missing out on the Golden Globe red carpet, stars were out for their walk down the 2008 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) red carpet.
The strapless ladies
Angelina Jolie (on the red carpet with Brad Pitt) wore a vintage Hermes tie-dye brown dress, offsetting her shiny dark locks and creamy complexion beautifully - but it did nothing to dispel the pregnancy rumours. Also wearing a strapless gown was Amanda Bynes in her vivid blue Marchesa gown. The exquisite detail around the bust made the dress one of the standouts on the red carpet. Meanwhile a very pregnant Cate Blanchett wore a Cairone by Balenciaga floral dress, but no matter what she wears her pregnant glow made her aura only a mum-to-be can have.

The Ugly Betty ladies
The actresses of Ugly Betty play magazine girls, so it is a no brainer that the fabulous clothes they were on set would run off on to the red carpet. Vanessa Williams chose a canary yellow Escada strapless dress, accented with black with a slit she was all too happy to show off. Beckie Newton wore a Elsie Katz tiered white dress for the red carpet walk, with the colour and cut showing off her fabulous body. Meanwhile America Ferrera chose a dress from her perennial red carpet designer, Monique Lhuillier. The grey lace gown was a bold chose for the red carpet. A little understated perhaps, but it’s fitted and flowed in all the right places.
The ladies with the train
Fishtail gowns have been all the rage on red carpets lately, they give a great hourglass shape to the wearing, nipping in at the waist and again around the knees before flowing out behind the wearer. Teri Hatcher chose a silver floral gown by Badgley Mischka, which was complete with sequinned detail around the bust. Desperate Housewives co-star Eva Longoria wore a form fitting Naeem Kham gown with a plunging cowl back – she knows how to show off her best side, and did it well here. Ellen Pompeo played its classy and sophisticated in this sculpted Nina Ricci gown, which shimmered around the translucent skin.
The some of other ladies
Yes there are more pictures! Nikki Blonsky chose a bold blue satin dress, which showed off her best feature – that smile. While Christina Applegate sparkled in her Elie Saab tiered gown, clutching this season’s must have accessory (according to Who What Wear) – a giant clutch. Mean while Debra Messing, who never seems to do no wrong and still takes the occasional risk, shimmers in a gold Oscar de la Renta gown. I think this could be my favourite look of the whole red carpet.
