The SAG Awards aren't usually the highlight of the season from a fashion point of view. If you have dibs on a really great dress, you're saving it for the Oscars or you already wore it to the Golden Globes. Let's face it; the SAG Awards only airs on basic cable, anyway. Thus, we get a motley assortment of prom dresses, summer frocks and stuff stars' stylists may or may not have found on the sales racks at the mall. In the mix, there are always a few winners, though -- as well as some fashion fails.

Sometimes I'm just not sure what to make of "American Horror Story: Coven." Last week, it was a kill-a-ganza with soothing music provided by Stevie Nicks, and this week it's an episode that's just as bloody and possibly even more frantic (I blame the lack of a rock icon).
