This morning, the nominees for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced, marking the beginning of the 2012 Oscar race (and, more importantly, the red-carpet best-dressed competition). This year’s SAG Awards was ripe with newcomers and bright prints (cue: Hailee Steinfeld in the striped Prada dress that proved to be a game-changer for the teen star) and the awards show pros like Nicole Kidman, January Jones, and a pregnant Natalie Portman (who, of course, went on to win the Oscar for her Black Swan performance). What’s to come next year? We don’t have the answer just yet, but here are some pretty good hints (below). Topping the list is The Help, which leads with four nominations, and The Artist, with two nominations.

A new class of mothers-to-be are celebrating their pregnancies in style—and definitely not covering them up. January Jones and Charlotte Gainsbourg, both visibly expecting, have both stepped out in recent days in sheer black outfits: Jones (above right) in a more casual Alternative Apparel silk modal boyfriend tee and jeans while shopping in L.A., and Gainsbourg (above left) in a see-through black gown at the premiere of Melancholia in Cannes. But street-style blog watchers may remember that the trend isn’t, strictly speaking, new: Stylist Julia von Boehm (bottom) who wore a similar look way back in 2009.
What do Blake Lively, January Jones, and Emma Stone (above) have in common? Plenty, upon consideration: blond hair, long legs, magazine covers, fiery hot acting careers…also: sunglasses. Lively, Jones, and Stone are just a few of the trendsetting celebs who have nabbed pairs of Pret-a-Surf‘s soon-to-debut sunglasses, made with the L.A.-based label KBL. The frames mark Pret-a-Surf’s first collaboration, and they pick up the red motif of the brand’s beachwear. “I’m sure you’ve noticed the red zipper on many of our looks,” points out Jillian Demling, who co-founded Pret-a-Surf with Karen Mulligan last year. According to Demling, both she and Mulligan have picked up multiple pairs of KBL sunglasses since the brand launched in 2007, and they immediately cottoned onto KBL cat-eyes as a fitting adjunct to Pret-a-Surf’s sporting take on vintage pinup style. “We wanted shades that our girl could wear playing tennis, surfing, or just lying on the beach.” Or, as it turns out, ducking the paparazzi.
Betty Draper may favor sixties style, but January Jones is a girl of the aughts—she goes for Versace. The Mad Men star is, according to Donatella Versace, “the most glamorous American actress,” which is why she picked the Golden Globe nominee to wear Versace bags and shoes—and not much else—in the label’s Spring 2011 accessories campaign. Below, an exclusive look behind the scenes of the London shoot, with Versace, Jones, and Mario Testino.
