Jane Lynch's Ali Rahimi Gown Wows the 2011 SAG Awards

Barbara Hershey's Gracious Elegance Is Enhanced by Her Ali Rahimi Gown

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 31, 2011) - Having recently been described as "her good luck charm," Jane Lynch again dons an Ali Rahimi original design to wear to the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. Landing on numerous "Best Dressed" lists from her recent Golden Globes victory, Lynch again enlisted the designer to create another elegant gown for this SAG Awards ceremony.

"As we continue our collaboration, the trust she has in me allows me to do some of my best work -- whether it is on a red carpet, personal appearances or for a private event," says Rahimi.

Having recently dressed the award-winning Lynch at the Golden Globes in a graphite black silk/Lurex evening gown, the gown she wore for the SAG Awards is an iridescent orchid silk taffeta gown with a two-tier skirt. It is more playful in color but, possessing couture elements. Rahimi continues to create for the actress, showcasing the artist and her statuesque form.

Lynch's jewelry -- earrings, bracelet, ring and brooch -- are all thanks to Neil Lane and her purse, Swarovski.

Also wearing a Rahimi original design is nominee, Barbara Hershey, who donned a Japanese-inspired print, bias-cut Italian silk charmeuse gown; the poppies were hand-painted with gold leaf. "This fabric was designed for someone spectacular -- to go somewhere spectacular -- and we achieved that today," Rahimi comments.

In his 20 years designing in Los Angeles, Rahimi has dressed A-List celebrities, such as Angela Bassett, Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria. Rahimi also designs striking accessories for men and women and tuxedoes and other garments for men. He also creates more casual pieces, such as the iconic pink suit worn by Reese Witherspoon in "Legally Blonde 2" or the outfits for Lynch in the television hit show, "Glee" in their rendition of Madonna's "Vogue" video.

You can see some of Rahimi's latest designs for the upcoming Academy Awards, in person, at the "Sneak Peak" Oscar Suite at Café La Boheme at 8400 Santa Monica Blvd. in West Hollywood, Calif. on Tuesday, February 8 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information on this event, contact Doris Bergman at 310-397-3638.
