Giuliana Rancic Stuns in Purple Gown at SAG Awards

    January 19, 2014

Giuliana Rancic wowed onlookers as she worked the red carpet at the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday night. Her purple satin gown, accessorized simply with a black belt and understated earrings, drew a lot of favorable attention.

As co-host of E! Network’s flagship entertainment industry news show, Rancic is currently one of the best known celebrity hosts. Rancic also co-hosts E!’s Fashion Police, along with Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, and George Kotsiopoulos.

The Fashion Police quartet gets together after big Hollywood events to critique celebrity fashions. As a presumed expert on the subject, it’s no surprise that Rancic consistently impresses at awards ceremonies and similar events.

According to Rancic, her gown was made by Lebanese designer Basil Soda. The color of the gown drew references to color authority Pantone’s Color of the Year “Radiant Orchid.”

Just last week, Rancic was on another red carpet, this one at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

Rancic and her husband Bill star in their own reality show Giuliana and Bill in which they’ve chronicled Rancic’s fight against breast cancer and their struggles with infertility. The series premiered in August 2009 and wrapped its sixth season this year. It moved from Style Network to E! in October following NBC Universal’s decision to launch its new cable network Esquire on Style.
