SAG Award Night Looks for Less

Are you looking to picking up some of last night's looks for less?  The SAG Awards fashion pieces are hot, but the prices are not...  The actresses can afford high end designer fashion.  Unfortunately, the rest of us have to shop around for other options.  Below are not exactly what the stars were wearing, but the images provide options for your review.

Piperlime Closing

Gap Inc. announced on January 23, 2015 the decision to close its Piperlime brand, including the online platform and single store in New York, by the end of the first quarter of fiscal year 2015.

While Gap Inc. does not break out Piperlime’s sales independently, the brand is by far the smallest of the company’s portfolio with yearly revenue below $100 million, representing less than 1 percent of Gap Inc.’s total revenue base of over $16 billion. The wind-down costs associated with the decision are not material to the company’s financials.

Don't forget, back in June 2014 Piperlime Closed the men's division.  Looks like now, they have given up entirely on the women's division.

After graduating from DePaul University in 2008 and living in New York City for a year, she moved to Los Angeles in 2010 to pursue an acting career.  We are glad she had made that decision.

Lauren outshined everyone last night.  We are sure she made Taylor Schilling and the rest of the Orange is the New Black cast a bit jealous.

Obviously many other female and male celebrities looked fabulous, but these are the glamorous stars that caught our attention.

Joey Thurman Insight on Oscar Night Fashion

Steve Carell

Keira Knightley

Nominated for best supporting actress for her role in The Imitation Game.
“Keira is not afraid to show her personality with fashion,” comments Thurman. “She is expecting her first child and I am intrigued to see if she is going to showcase her growing bump or keep it hidden. Either way, she will be wearing her unique style flawlessly.”

Emma Stone

Nominated for best supporting actress for her role in Birdman
“Emma never fails on the red carpet,” says Thurman. “This classic beauty wears bold colors to make her stand out in a positive way. She is one to look for on the big night.”

Neil Patrick Harris

Hosting the Oscars “All eyes will be on Neil to see what he changes into throughout the night,” says Thurman. “This man is all for being bold with suits and tuxedos! I look forward to seeing his colorful choice this year.”
