There were about 120 million people watching Super Bowl 50, Sunday February 7, 2016!

It was a loss for the Carolina Panthers, and a great win for Peyton Manning’s last game. But this year there was something even bigger which took over the football hype, and that was: Coldplay, Bruno Mars, and none other than Queen B aka Beyonce!

Watching the magic of three very different artists collab at the nations highest viewed event was breathtaking. Coldplay sang a mix of Viva La Vida, Paradise, and Yellow. And then shortly after, that’s when Bruno Mars jumped in with his infamous Uptown Funk, and Beyonce made her appearance with her new single, Formation. The show concluded with the three talented singers dedicating a montage of the last 50 years of Super Bowl with the crowd joining in.

More than half the nation had chills, goosebumps and tears in our eyes. When we saw the ‘Believe in Love’ sign in the audience in a multi-colored formation it only added to the breathtaking ensemble.

This performance really had a strong message to the nation though. I feel like we have so many negative news these days, there are so many problems occurring in the world, and it’s unfortunate to say we as people have forgotten to just simply love. We have to love everyone to move forward. We have to welcome every color, every race, every religion, and every personal. This is how I perceived the show though, I know many people around the world were tweeting about how beautiful this halftime show was, or going against it.

Talking Production…

Can we just talk about how much work must have gone behind creating this magical piece though?!

From the choreography for each artists, lighting, and number of cameras. Huge props to the people who came up with this brilliant idea and produced it into a memorable performance.

The sets as well were a big wow factor! For Coldplay we saw loads of color, and even some hints of Indian designs and lettering on their drums and speakers, which read ‘Coldplay’. Bruno Mars and his back-up dancers looked suave and chic in their leather and gold suits. And Beyonce didn’t need much of a set, as she took half the football field with her fierceness and attitude in a black leotard, fishnet tights, and flying hair.

The twenty-second annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, also known as SAG Awards were held on Saturday January 30, 2016! The guild awards are mainly for honoring the best achievements in film and television in the year of 2015.

Like any large event which includes lot’s of celebrities, there are always a select few red carpets we all end up liking and the rest… well we just wonder what they were thinking.

Here are the top-eight looks we felt were either jaw-dropping or simply elegant!

1. If you’re a sucker for sequins like myself, you’ll love this gown!

Here’s Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton. The actress carried herself onto the red carpet with this chic look and even bagged an award for Outstanding Performance in a supporting role female for The Danish Girl

2. Elegant and poise!

Ariel Winter in her Romono Keveza strapless, backless black gown was breathtakingly beautiful. The 18 year old actress who recently got breast-reduction surgery done, was afraid to rock this gown. After she carried it with full confidence on the carpet, she later conveyed to her Instagram followers,

Embrace all that you are… Scars & everything. Your imperfections make you perfectly you #loveyourself

3. There were a few ladies in blue on the red carpet this year, but this one in particular stood out!

Diane Lane in a Angel Sanchez one-shoulder simple gown. A soft side ponytail and crystal earrings and bracelet only add to her elegant look.

4. Better late than never!

Saoirse Ronan rocked her Micheal Kors gown! The actress seemed a bit flustered when she arrived on-stage, but there’s not doubt she looked gorgeous in this look.

5. One of my favorite TV actresses from the infamous Shonda Rhimes TGIT series, Scandal!

Katie Lowes in her savy-chic Christian Siriano gown is stunning!

6. The Crazy, Stupid, Love cast reunion!

Marisa Tomei from looked divine in this dark-teal Zuhair Murad gown! The intricate bead-work and low-cut neckline only adds to how eye-catching this piece is.

7. This one may be one of my least favorites, but it still works!

Kaley Cuoco in a Romona Kaveza one-shoulder illusion gown rocked it pretty well. What doesn’t work to well with the simple-chic gown is the top-knot. Something about it is not looking right with this look. But still gorgeous!

8. And lastly, another one of my least favorites, but because she’s my favorite I still feel she’s flawless!

Quantico and Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra looks drop-dead-gorgeous as always! She’s wearing a Monique Lhuillier mermaid-style gown with an embroidery detailed design. All eyes were on her during the red carpet entrance and Hollywood cannot get enough of the stunning brown girl on television!  sagawards5
