The 2016 red carpet season continued with last night’s SAG Awards and for the most part, a lot of the looks were very simple and somewhat casual compared to the Golden Globes or the upcoming Oscars. Either way, our favorite actors and actresses still rocked the red carpet with confidence and style. Make sure you read to the end to see my FAVORITE looks of them all. (All photos from Zimbio)
25 & UNDER CLUB – These stars, all 25 years of age and under, kept it fresh and fun with their looks. When they grow up and bloom more as actresses, I don’t doubt that they’ll still be setting the trends for their generation and continue to be fashion icons.
Kiernan Shipka (16) seemed to have the most fun on the red carpet! While the photo I chose might make you question that statement, most of the other photos were of her laughing and smiling huge. The Mad Men star chose to wear a floral Erdem dress and kept it simple with minimal jewelry (Dana Rebecca Designs earrings and Irene Neuwirth rings).
Maisie Williams (18) kept it cool in a blue Ermanno Scervino dress. While the others decided to go with floor length gowns, she decided to show off her Nicholas Kirkwood heels. I always love to see Maisie dress up for these things, just because it’s so different from Arya Stark on Game of Thrones.
Saoirse Ronan (21) kept it quite conservative with a long sleeve Michael Kors dress, but she looked so elegant. To me, the pale pink color and floral pattern made it such a beautiful dress. It was very fitting for Saoirse and I’m glad she decided to pull her hair back into a bun to show off those Forevermark Diamonds
Sophie Turner (19) gave me some Game of Thrones/Sansa Stark feels with her black Carolina Herrera gown. She came out looking fierce, fabulous, and confident just like when Sansa stark decided she wasn’t going to take any more bull from anyone at the end of Season 4. She also kept it minimal with the jewelry and showed off her Jimmy Choo clutch as an accessory
Sarah Hyland (25) stunned in a navy J. Mendel gown. This was Sarah’s sixth year in a row at the SAG awards so we all know she’s not a newbie when it comes to red carpet season. I loved the little detail in the front of her dress and the fact that she confidently rocked that leg slit. And of course, just like the first time we saw her back in 2010, she kept it fun and always had a smile on her face. P.S. The Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira jewelry = ::heart eyes::
THE VETERANS: These actresses have been in showbiz for 15+ years so they know a thing or two about rocking the red carpet.
Rachel McAdams stunned in a black and nude Elie Saab gown. The floral pattern and sparkling embellishments had her shining on the red carpet. But her dress wasn’t the only thing shining, did you see the diamonds (Harry Kotlar diamond earrings and rings, and a Le Vian diamond ring) she was rocking? I’m trying to imagine the dress without the mesh top, but either way she makes that neckline work!
Kate Winslet kept it classy in a green Armani gown. Normally, I’m not a fan of the color green when it comes to clothing, but this is an exception. She joked in an interview that she didn’t even look in the mirror before hitting the red carpet, but here she is keeping it classy. This dress was so perfect for her body. I also loved the natural make up and classic hairdo. The look is so simple, but so beautiful and fitting.
Viola Davis didn’t just win a SAG Award for Outstanding Actress in a Drama Series (for the 2nd time in a row). She definitely won on the red carpet with this lavender Zac Posen dress. It complimented her body so well especially that off the shoulder neckline! The make up matched perfectly and so did the jewelry.
Marisa Tomei was another stunner in green! This low-cut Zuhair Murad dress sparkled with sequins. The pairing with the white belt was perfect and the long sleeves gave it such an elegant feel.
LITCHFIELD REPRESENTING!: OITNB won Outstanding Ensemble in a Comedy Series again and some of them won on the red carpet as well!Samira Wiley was a vision in this white Christian Siriano dress! I guess she was inspired by some of this years Golden Globes looks. It was another simple look on the red carpet, but it still stood out among the rest and she made sure that she added a pop of color with her jewelry.
Laverne Cox is always rocking the red carpet and this is probably my favorite look of hers so far. This cascading maroon dress is part of Prabal Gurung‘s collection. The little peek-a-boo slit at the waist and the leg slit was perfect and made her look like a fierce goddess!
PRETTY IN PINK: Grease Live just aired and these ladies seemed to be inspired by the Pink Ladies and made sure to add some brightness to the red carpet.
Diane Guerrero rocked a mermaid style gown by Christian Siriano and it did not disappoint. She decided to keep the trend and step away from a necklace to bring attention to the sweetheart neckline of her dress.
Emilia Clarke kept it sleek and sultry in a low cut Dior Haute Couture. It was definitely a different direction from her black Golden Globes dress. While that dress screamed “Khaleesi”, this dress screamed “fun and flirty Khaleesi”. And I absolutely loved that she paired it with some matching Dior jewelry.
Sofia Vergara, just like her Modern Family co-star Sarah Hyland, is used to walking the red carpet and she always makes heads turn. Personally, I’m not usually blown away by her red carpet looks but I’m actually a fan of this Vera Wang number on her.
COMEDIAN BFFs: At the Golden Globes, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer stole the show, but they aren’t the only comedian BFFs in Hollywood!
Tina Fey was a lady in red and I’m a sucker for red dresses because if you didn’t know by now, my favorite color is red. But enough about me. This halter gown was designed by Prabal Gurung. Fey paired it off with some beautiful Mouawad earrings and Vivier clutch.
Kristen Wiig kept it simple and decided to opt out of a dress and went for a Roland Mouret jumpsuit. And you know what? It works for the SAG Awards because its one of the award shows that are more relaxed and
My Absolute Favorites of the Night: Now onto the dresses the took my breath away and had me react the most.
Laura Prepon stunned me in this white Carmen Marc Valvo Couture dress. I’m going to be honest, I’m not usually a fan of her red carpet looks, but this look made me bust out my real life heart eyes emojis. The color against her skin tone and the contrast with her dark cascading waves, she looked like such a classic Hollywood beauty.
Alicia Vikander geometric patterned Louis Vuitton dress is one you can’t forget. Out of the three of these actresses, her dress was my favorite. At the Globes, she decided to go with a simple white dress, but the SAG choice was sequins galore with metallic colors. It was a pretty bold choice for the SAG Awards. I like her with this type of neckline and if this was her choice for this show, I wonder how she’s going to step it up at the Oscars. No pressure, Alicia. No pressure at all.
Brie Larson’s in this Atelier Versace gown gave me mixed emotions, but after much thought, I realized I actually liked [most of] it. First off, there’s no doubt that I loved the pastel blue color on her. I liked that she toned it down a bit from that gold number at the Globes (which was one of my favorites anyways). It kind of reminded me of a toga which gave her this Greek Goddess look. Oh and the fact that she paired the dress with some Tiffany and co. Jewelry is perfect.The only thing that I can’t get on board with is the rope detail at the hip and upper abdomen, but I do think it looks nice at the shoulder.
And those were my best dressed ladies of the night, but I can’t forget about the handsome men that stepped out. Here are a few of the actors that stood out to me:
Tom Cullen, bae Pedro Pascal, the adorable Jacob Tremblay, bae Kit Harington, & Rami Malek decided to keep it classic in fitted black tuxedos and they did not disappoint me one bit.
You’ve reached the end! Congrats! Thank you for sticking with me. What were your favorite looks of the 2016 SAG Awards red carpet?
