Ellen Pompeo @ SAG Awards 2008

Newlywed Ellen Pompeo looks classy as ever in a sculpted silver gown by Nina Ricci at the 2008 Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday in Los Angeles.

The Grey’s Anatomy star explained how she chose her dress for the red carpet: “This dress was in Vogue in the January issue and I said, ‘I had to have this dress’.”

As for the rest of her outfit, Pompeo worked out a messy (yet sexy) top knot and accessorized her look with Fred Leighton jewels and Christian Louboutin peeptoe pumps.

“I wanted to do something more runway with Ellen rather than typical Hollywood hair,” added her hairstylist Harry Josh. “We ended up doing a messy bedhead look with a very chic side bun. Ellen loved it! She’s such a joy to work with, is beyond generous to her glam squad and is incredibly trusting.”

    WOW!!!!! I love the dress, and her hair…she looks flawless, and so beautiful.

  • the_original_nika

    hideous dress .


    Eh, I don’t think her choices in clothing are ever good. I don’t like the color of the dress, it just washes her out.

    Besides, she always looks like she’s in her 40′s-50′s.

    That’s a copy of last year’s Emmy’s hairdo’s that were worn by the true fashionistas. Ellen Pompeo is copying Klum, and La Walsh, 6 months later. How sad.

    Ellen looked very nice. I’m curious-were Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight at the SAG awards. I have not seen pictures.

  • tess

    I really cant see the physical beauty of Ellen. She looks very ordinary to me. She looks much older than her age. She is a very good actress though.
    It is just MY opinion……

    I saw everyone except Patrick tr and katherine. its a shame they couldn’t make it.

  • Rae

    I love the dress. I don’t like the black shoes with it and I thought side buns were over? She has great style but I just can’t see her as glamorous. Maybe it’s the ordinary looks, I don’t know.
