The Good: Stars Shine Once More At Screen Actors Guild Awards

It's going to be okay. After the train-wreck that was the Golden Globes, the stars all showed, chastened and sheepish and back in form for Saturday's SAGs. Christina, Marion, Penelope...it's so nice to have you back!

If we honor her for nothing else, can we give Gabourey Sidibe the credit for single-handedly bringing back sleeves? Like, two, functional sleeves? This is Pamela Rolland.

I wasn't feeling Kate Hudson's sharp white at the GGs, but this soft, backless Emilio Pucci jersey is another matter entirely. (Although what's with all the white, I don't know.)

Okay, yes, Marion Cotillard skews a little Ice Capades. And this Elie Saab may be controversial. But how stunning is she? I think it's all about the attitude.

Fashion wise, the SAGS were way better than the GG.

To single out two: Kate Hudson was killing it! And when I saw Carey Mulligan, I had to think of Lorelei/Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: 'I always love it when I find new places to wear diamonds.'

(prob not the exact quote, but something along those lines).
