9 Pairs of Shoes Our Favorite SAG Nominees Should Wear on the Red Carpet
Nude strappy sandals go with everything, but they can be pretty boring, especially for a big event. When you’re being awarded for your talents, you should step into a pair of banging heels, right? When else could you wear crazy, formal heels and get away with it? With that in mind, we matched up this year’s SAG nominees with the shoes we think they should be wearing on the red carpet. Fingers…
Christian Louboutin Ha Why Luna
Open to sartorial experimentation, Saoirse Ronan should have no problem going wild with her shoe choice. It’s clear that the Best Performance in a Leading Role-nominee is not afraid of color, so these Hawaiian print Louboutins shouldn’t problem for her.
Valentino Patent Butterfly-Illusion heel Sandal
Googling images of Cate Blanchett is kind of like staring into the sun: She is so stunning that she’s hard to look at. While her clothes are always flawless, the Carol star rarely goes wild with her footwear. We hope she changes things up with these butterfly-heeled sandals by Valentino.
Tom Ford Metallic Laminated Eel Lace-Up Sandal
After dominating the Golden Globes’ red carpet in a Calvin Klein cut out gown, we expect big things from the Room actress at the SAGs. If she’s still feeling the golden vibes, these Tom Ford sandals are like the shoe version of that metallic dress.
Proenza Schouler Toe-Ring Embellished Sandal
Rooney Mara spent a good chunk of time promoting Carol wearing Proenza Schouler, so she might as well wear their shoes to the SAGs. Paired with her usual—a modern yet romantic dress of the Givenchy or Alexander McQueen variety—we think they’d make perfect mates.
Prada Brocade-Embellished Metallic Mule
As the face of Louis Vuitton, we can assume that Alicia Vikander will wear their dress at the SAGs, but that doesn’t mean she has to wear their footwear. This glam Prada mule is Old Hollywood chic, just like The Danish Girl actress, and will definitely get noticed on the red carpet (in a good way).
Nicholas Kirkwood Stella Lasercut Peep Toe Mules
Sarah Silverman usually takes the classic route when it comes to red carpet footwear. We don’t want to push her too far out of her comfort zone (though she did take a risk in her leading role in I Smile Back), but the comedianne needs a pair of sexy cut-out mules for her first SAG nomination.
Dolce & Gabbana d’Orsay Heels
The double nominee is a big fan of Dolce & Gabbana, but she usually pairs their playful dresses with nude pumps. We think Mirren should go all the way with the brand and opt for their bejeweled Mary Janes, too.
Narciso Rodriguez Sling Sandals
If a pair of shoes were to look like Rachel McAdams, it would be these ones by Narciso Rodriguez. The burgundy python is luxe but lowkey, and the curvaceous silhouette is as sexy (if not just a smidge more) than the Best Female in a Supporting Role-nominee’s usual fare.
Francesco Russo Leather Pumps
The Steve Jobs actress doesn’t go crazy on the red carpet, but if she did, we’d hope these sexy d’orsay pumps with a high back would be Winslet’s choice.
