Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer Rock the Sartorically Rock the SAGS

Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer went with safe, yet fashionable options at Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards. White was a major color on the red carpet and Davis' strapless Marchesa with gold lame details were among the night's top fashion choices. Octavia Spencer was classic, yet phenomenal in her nude Tadashi Shoji (It looks like Shoji is becoming Spencer's go-to designer as she opted for him at this year's Golden Globes too. We would be remiss if we did not congratulate Davis and Spencer for their best actress and best supporting actress SAG awards respectively. Both women did a phenomenal job in the movie, The Help. What did you think of Davis' and Spencer's red carpet pics?

About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
