Whitney dishes on who almost got it right

Fashion designer Whitney Port had a few favorite red carpet looks at the 2013 SAG Awards, but these three celebs just missed her best-dressed list.

Katrina Bowden at the 2013 SAG Awards

30 Rock stunner Katrina Bowden's blue Badgley Mischka gown was breathtaking, according to Whitney.

"It's very etherial and elegant," the designer said. "Very pretty color."

Jennifer Lawrence at the 2013 SAG Awards

Silver Linings Playbook actress Jennifer Lawrence might have been battling walking pneumonia, but you'd never know it from looking at her. Whitney loved her Christian Dior Haute Couture gown because it's "simple and chic."

Her one gripe? It's "verging on plain for what I am used to from her."

We have to agree, Whitney.

Jayma Mays at the 2013 SAG Awards

Glee star Jayma Mays opted for a two-piece gown, but her Georges Hobeika Atelier gown wasn't as striking as another star's.

"I love the white beading," Whitney said, "but she didn't do it as well as Kerry Washington."

January Jones at the 2013 SAG Awards

Most interesting look: January Jones

So, January Jones didn't quite make the B-squad, but Whitney noticed her for something else: her hair.

"January Jones hair was awesomely edgy and cool," Whitney said, though she didn't say the same about the i actress' Prabal Gurung dress.

"I didn't love her dress," the designer added.

Whitney's style advice for the Oscars and Grammys

Every A-lister wants to make it on the best-dressed list, no matter if they admit it or not. Whitney says celebs can make the jump from B- to A-squad by taking more risks with their gowns.

"We want to see things that we could never wear... something different," Whit told SheKnows.

A perfect example? Amanda Seyfried and Kerry Washington took a chance — and it paid off.

As for the beauty aspect? Go with the mantra that "less is more."

"I always think if you are going to make a statement on your face to do either eyes and no lip and bare eyes and a bold lip," Whitney advised.

Listen up, celebs! Whitney knows what she's talking about.
