SAG Awards 2016: The Hottest Trends of the Night
For those stars looking to induce whiplash on the red carpet, a hint of shimmer won’t do. Head-to-toe sparkle was on the menu instead for Julianne Moore (in Givenchy Haute Couture), Alicia Vikander (in Louis Vuitton), Nicole Kidman (in Gucci) and Queen Latifah (in custom Michael Costello).
HIGH NECKS, SHORT SLEEVES
A T-shirt inspired silhouette got a glam upgrade on the gowns of Naomi Watts (in Burberry), Rachel McAdams (in Elie Saab) and Anna Faris (wearing Naeem Khan).
Red may stop traffic, but magenta shuts everything down. Need proof? Just check out Sofia Vergara (in Vera Wang), Emilia Clarke (wearing Dior Haute Couture) and Diane Guerrero.
These stars were absolute gems in their rich-hued gowns: Kate Winslet wore Giorgio Armani Couture, Marisa Tomei wore Zuhair Murad and Uzo Aduba sparkled in a sequin dress.
One of the night's biggest trends is also distantly related to the hairstyle you're likely sporting right now: The pretty pony (as seen on, clockwise from top left: Rooney Mara, Kristen Wiig, Sophie Turner and Amanda Peet).
This year's nominated dudes were serious about their style this year – and surprisingly, many of them opted for midnight blue over classic black. Three that had us particularly delighted? Idris Elba, in Ermenegildo Zegna; Jon Hamm, in Brioni; and Leonardo DiCaprio, in Giorgio Armani (any Father of the Bride fans wondering when Armani starting making a navy tux?).
SUPER HIGH SLITS
Sarah Hyland (wearing J. Mendel) coined the term “Angelina Jo-Leg,” and Brie Larson (wearing Atelier Versace) and Laverne Cox (in Atelier Prabal Gurung) helped her illustrate the concept.
Simple, solid colors aren’t always the most memorable. Priyanka Chopra (in Monique Lhuillier), Ellie Kemper, Rachel McAdams (wearing Elie Saab) and Annie Parisse make prints charming for their SAG Awards red carpet walk.
Who needs major bling when you’ve got your best accessory built right in? Not Rooney Mara (in Valentino Haute Couture), Claire Danes (in Stella McCartney) and Eva Longoria.
Celebs don’t put in all that time with their trainers for nothing. So why not flaunt those hard-earned triceps in a style that’s all about the arms (as seen on Tina Fey in Prabal Gurung, Samira Wiley in Christian Siriano, Stephanie Drank and Jessica Paré in KaufmanFranco)?
We weren’t the least bit melancholy about the fact that hues from midnight to cornflower graced the red carpet on stars including Diane Lane, Jackie Cruz (in Leanne Marshall) and Maisie Williams.
Sarah Silverman (in Vivienne Westwood), Ariel Winter (in Romona Keveza) and Viola Davis all show off the va-va-voom benefits of the shapely silhouette.
