When you think of shorts, you probably automatically envision a casual day running errands or just hanging out in the backyard (ha, backyard). Rarely, would you think of shorts as formal, but as of late, shorts have taken a turn towards formal. Celebrities have opted for shorts on the red carpet and have dressed up even their casual cut offs with feminine blouses. So, next time you’re staring into the depths of your closet trying to figure out what exactly to wear, don’t forget about your abbreviated pants (also known as shorts). Dressed up with heels and a sexy blouse, you have another option for a warm weather evening look that is anything but expected.
To be honest… I was almost so uninspired that I didn’t even bother with a Red Carpet Recap for this year’s SAG Awards. While the dresses are a bit better than when they started this award season with the People’s Choice Awards, I’m still waiting to be wowed. Having just finished up the Paris couture shows, one would think there would have been a little bit more drama on the red carpet… On a positive note, there was nothing this time that truly offended me either… that much. As we all know, there are only so many designers to go around, so I will now present you with the good, the bad and the debatable (where you’ll be the judge of who wore which designer best).
Rose Byrne in Elie Saab, Kyra Sedgewick in Emilio Pucci, Emily Blunt in Oscar de la Renta, Regina King in Alberta Ferretti

Alright ladies, it’s time to really step it up. I can’t sit through another boring awards ceremony if you’re not willing to wear something wow-worthy. I will pretend it didn’t even happen next time. Just remember what Rooney’s dad said… the Oscar’s are your Superbowl.
