Hollywood stars continued to turn on the glamour at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, commonly known as the SAGs, Sunday. The glitzy awards night, which took place in LA’s Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall, saw the star-studded crowd embracing Old Hollywood styles that came with understated modern spins.
Feathers and embellishments were a huge hit with the A-listers who attended the event that exclusively honours the achievements of film and TV actors. And while white and black dominated, many of the fashion forward stars took advantage of the carpet turning silver for the night by opting for colours like pink and crimson, which would have clashed with the traditional red carpet. There were also lighthearted and playful touches galore.
Fittingly, it was the nominees for some of the night's top awards and those who want to court Oscar voters who stole most of the limelight. Here are the stars we felt helped Hollywood’s awards season move fashionably full steam ahead.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role nominee Rachel Weisz looked stunning in a Givenchy Haute Couture autumn-winter 2018 outfit, designed by Clare Waight Keller. “The Favourite" star wore an asymmetrical cape in black silk velvet with a skirt in silver dévoré velvet, embroidered with gradations of crystal and waxed, silver-tinted ostrich feathers.
Danai Gurira’s ice white silk crêpe column gown off-the-shoulder column Ralph & Russo gown featured a sheer crystal chain mail bodice embellished with crystal micro xilions and a sculptured overlay of devoré ostrich feathers. The look from the autumn-wiinter 2018 couture collection was an angelic one for the American-Zimbabwean star, 40, who stars in “Black Panther,” a movie that picked up two awards.
"BlacKkKlansman" star Laura Harrier was the epitome of grace in a fuchsia pink off-the-shoulder custom Loewe gown. The pouffy, whimsical sleeves helped take her look to the next level.
Emma Stone’s unconventional choice proved she can look good in anything. "The Favourite" and “Maniac” star, who earned two nominations, switched things up in custom Louis Vuitton, wearing an asymmetrical beaded gold top featuring a pussy bow neckline and black wide-leg trousers.
Australian actress Margot Robbie was another one leading the style stakes in a revealing white and gold Chanel column dress, embroidered with gold glass beading and metallic thread. The 28-year-old stunner was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her part in period drama “Mary, Queen of Scots.”
British actress Gemma Chan continued her winning style streak in a gorgeous custom blush pink number by Oscar de la Renta. The one-shoulder gown worn by the “Crazy Rich Asians” actress came with a petal-inspired tiered, ruffled high-low skirt. A reported 100 hours of hand pleating 30 yards of silk taffeta went into creating the unique gown.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore’s daughter, Rumer Willis, nailed it with her colour choice, rocking a show-stopping red satin dress by Ong-Oaj Pairam. The actress’s long sleeved wrap dress featured lots of lovely bunched fabric.
Sofia Hublitz hit the silver carpet in a head-turning sparkling champagne coloured Marchesa gown. The actress who stars in “Ozark,” which was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, elegantly stood out in her dress that dripped with beading and had a skinny red belt.
"Glow" actress Betty Gilpin, matched the silver carpet in a dreamy Krikor Jabotian creation. The American joined the cast of the Netflix comedy series, which was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, in a metallic silver tiered gown with a plunging neckline.
Yara Shahidi continued with her risk-taking ways in one of the most eye-catching ensembles of the evening. The ambassador for this year's SAG Awards and “Black-ish” actress donned a light pink embellished couture Fendi spandex catsuit, which she wore under a sheer tulle dress.
Constance Wu was yet another fashion heavyweight in the prettiest gleaming silver Oscar de la Renta dress. The American actress who stars in ““Crazy Rich Asians,” nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, wore the strapless silk-chiffon gown with a gold brooch at the hip.
Host of the 2019 Golden Globes Sandra Oh was red hot in a one-shoulder embellished crepe oxblood gown by Jenny Packham. What’s more, she walked home with the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her leading role in “Killing Eve.”
Nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role, Lady Gaga ravished in an ivory frayed taffeta Dior Haure Couture gown, which came straight off Maria Grazia Chiuri’s spring couture runway. The jaw-dropping slit, ruched bodice and deep V-neck all helped make the ”A Star is Born” actress a leading light.
Amy Adams was a vision in an adorable black peplum gown created by Hedi Slimane for Celine. The flattering strapless look by the actress, who scored two SAG nominations for her work on "Vice" and "Sharp Objects,” featured a striking ruffled waist and neckline and thigh-high slit.
Emily Blunt, who was nominated as a lead actor for her turn as Mary Poppins and won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her part in "A Quiet Place," had us tickled pink in a crystal-embroidered gown. The bubblegum coloured Michael Kors Collection number came with bold and sculptural ruffle satin sleeves.
Mandy Moore’s black custom off-the-shoulder Jason Wu gown featured a gorgeous embellished neckline. As well as being all class in the mermaid-like creation with a cinched waist and revealing slit, she was dressed for a cause while celebrating the Best Ensemble in a Drama Series win for “This Is Us.”
Michelle Yeoh shone brightly in an Elie Saab gown, which was part of the Lebanese designer’s latest haute couture collection. The sleeveless greige gown worn by the “Crazy Rich Asians” star came with an embroidered tulle bodice of metallic threads and sequins and a skirt sprinkled with ostrich feathers.
Catherine Zeta-Jones was simply beguiling in her Zuhair Murad gown that came from the Lebanese designer’s 2018 couture collection. Featuring a plunging bodice, the royal blue dress was covered in sapphire shimmering beads and came with sheer sleeves, a romantic train detail and thigh-high slit.
“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star Rachel Brosnahan, who won Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series for playing Miriam “Midge” Maisel, wowed in an icy grey-blue Christian Dior Haute Couture dress. She looked ultra sweet in the lacy bow-adorned strapless gown.
“The Handmaid's Tale” star Samira Wiley was super chic in a mesmerising Georges Chakra couture gown. The black chiffon gown from the Lebanese designer's autumn/winter couture collection featured an asymmetrical sequin neckline detail, a velvet belt and a pleated skirt with a revealing slit.
Robin Wright sizzled in a shimmering gunmetal Oscar de la Renta dress from the pre-fall 2019 collection. The 52-year-old “House of Cards” actress’s slinky and sensual dress featured a daring halter neck and sexy slit.
