We haven’t even crossed the Grammys mark yet and the red-carpet hits just keep on coming.

At Sunday night’s Producers Guild of America Awards, I noticed a few things I really liked, starting with the always impeccable “Homeland” star Claire Danes in a pale blue silk metallic Dior cocktail sheath with a twist-front bodice. This dress is perfection, sweet and sultry in one, and I love the icy blue color.

After the floral-embellished turquoise Gucci gown she wore to the SAG Awards on Saturday night, “12 Years A Slave” actress Lupita Nyong’o returned to a more streamlined and modern silhouette, with a terra-cotta-colored, asymmetrical, one-shoulder Stella McCartney dress.


But both women may have been outshined by Helen Mirren. The 68-year-old, who has been a star this awards show season, wore a sparkly nude gown by Elie Saab that had serious sex appeal.

In the jewelry department, “Veep” actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus accessorized her Max Mara little black dress with some insanely gorgeous earrings by L.A.-based designer Irene Neuwirth.

Then there was “Dallas Buyers Club” actor Jared Leto. It’s sure been fun to watch him this awards show season, from the man bun to Sunday night’s cool-looking Dior Homme black wool kimono-style shawl collar suit and clerical-looking white cotton shirt with inverted collar.

I’m glad to see that it’s not just the ladies who are bringing it.
