The SAG Awards may honor actors and their hard work, but on the red carpet on Sunday (January 29), it was all about recognizing all of the hard work they put into their looks. At the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, the overarching trend seemed to be flaunting what you’ve got.
Zoe Saldana went light in a sequined white dress with a drop waist and floral detailing. Kristin Wiig’s look, though, had a bit of a split personality: Her pale-hued Balenciaga gown was decidedly glam thanks to tailoring that showed off her long, lean body, but her black metal choker was a bit too heavy and goth for the overall look.
Two of the biggest divas on Fox’s “Glee,” Lea Michele and Naya Rivera, made pale colors look red-hot. Michele’s lavender Versace had a body-hugging bodice and thigh-high slit, while Rivera’s ice-blue dress was made even sexier thanks to a plunging neckline.
Red also ruled the carpet. “My Week With Marilyn” star Michelle Williams was chic in a bright-red Valentino dress, which was cut right above the ankle. Her ladylike look was capped off with lace detailing along her sleeves and neckline. “Dexter” star Jennifer Carpenter also opted for a red-and-lace red-carpet look.
Using a similar color palette, Sofia Vergara’s hot pink, strapless Marchesa gown was super hot. Her “Modern Family” co-star Julie Bowen went Grecian in a purple gown.
Emma Stone, Angelina Jolie, Tina Fey and Ashlee Simpson decided that a little black dress wasn’t too simple for Sunday’s show. Jolie played up her inner vixen in a Jenny Packham halter gown with a draped neckline. Meanwhile, Stone went quirky in a three-quarter-length strapless black dress with lace details. “The Help” star played up the fun aspect of the Alexander McQueen design with platform shoes.
Simpson, meanwhile, looked like a character right out of boyfriend Vincent Piazza’s show “Boardwalk Empire” in a ’20s-style Jenny Packham gown with sequins and see-through fabric along the neckline. Fey brought the “va va voom” in her black strapless column dress: It was all party on top — with grey and black shades — and business at the bottom in a plain black fabric.
The guys didn’t disappoint, either. Fellas like Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Jonah Hill kept it classic and simple in tuxedos, choosing ties over bowties. One guy, however, had a little fun with it, and that honor went to “Modern Family” star Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who wore a blue pinstripe suit with a matching blue-velvet bowtie.
