Best Dressed at Screen Actors Guild Awards 2016

On Saturday evening (January 30th), the 22nd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards 2016 took place at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Focusing on both individual performances as well as the work of an entire ensemble of a drama series, comedy series and a motion picture, the SAG Awards are one of my favourites to watch and celebrate. On the red carpet, there were so many happy faces but there were also a lot of beautifully dressed ladies & gentleman, so brace yourselves! Check out who made the Killer Fashion Best Dressed list this year, and who won the big awards on the night too.

Diane Guerrero blew me away. She looked absolutely beautiful in her fuchsia pink strapless mermaid gown. Her satin Angel Sanchez gown features a scalloped detail on the bust, with an exaggerated flared fishtail skirt. The colour of this gown compliments the Orange is the New Black actress’ skin tone beautifully, which she styled with a cracked mirrored silver plexiglass minaudière by Black Sea, jewellery by Mimi So and heels from Giuseppe Zanotti. The actress’ hair & makeup were also flawless, adding to this stunning look with metallic eyeshadow, big lashes & cat eyeliner, a dewy finish & nude lips. Breathtaking!

I love what actress Marissa Tomei wore for the SAG Awards, as she stepped out in a plunging embellished long sleeve gown by Zuhair Murad. The look was cinched in at the waist by a metallic belt that created a fireworks illusion which was so very flattering. A black box clutch, smokey eyes and side-pinned hair rounded up this look.

Pretty in Pink

Australian beauty Nicole Kidman attended in quite the dress, wearing this Gucci creation. The quadruple-coloured striped v-cut dress features cascading ruffle details with an asymmetrical tiered effect, on an all-over sequin body. If this could dress could be more girly, I don’t know how. The actress’ signature red hair was styled into soft curls, and styled the look with Fred Leighton jewellery with an Omega watch.

One of my favourites, Sofía Vergara did not disappoint in this strapless low sweetheart column dress by Vera Wang. The subtle structured detail on the bust with those David Webb statement jewellery added all the oomph we know Sofía is great at delivering.

Smokey eyes, a side-pinned hairstyle and pink nude lips completed her look. Sophie Mcshera also won the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series for ‘Downton Abbey’.

I quite liked what actress Priyanka Chopra wore to the awards, it’s definitely that little bit different from her fellow actresses. The champagne & hot pink Monique Lhuillier strapless featured a sweetheart neckline with floral lace appliqué on the body and an exaggerated tulle skirt finish. Gorgeous drop earrings & bracelets by Kimberly McDonald with a champagne box clutch from Edie Parker, magenta pink lips and a flawless updo and this beauty was all set.

Irish gal Saoirse Ronan looked wondrous on the red carpet, donning a pale pink floral lace long sleeve. The young actress wore Michael Kors Collection, opting for a simple but very sweet look that she teamed with Forevermark Diamonds earrings and Giuseppe Zanotti heels. What I love about this look is her makeup; it’s eye-catching – literally I noticed her eyes & makeup before everything else! An upstyle bun and nude lips completed Saoirse’s look.

On the Silver Screen

Liz Hernandez attended in a white long sleeve that worked her curves beautifully. The crochet embroidered peekaboo dress was teamed with barely there makeup and a neat ponytail for a less is more kind of finish.

Her v-cut Jenny Packham dress gave the Hollywood veteran gorgeous curves, with silver embellishments cascading down from the shoulders to the floor. Statement jewels by Harry Winston, with a Rauwolf bag and Stuart Weitzman heels completed the British actress’ look.

The Best of the Rest

She also matched an embellished cylindrical clutch by Jimmy Choo to her outfit, completing the demure look with jewels by Niwaka and an updo.

The Couples

So you know how I love a well-dressed couple, and this lot sure looked great together. And what I loved about the SAG Awards’ red carpet was that it wasn’t just couples doing it justice, but siblings, fathers & daughters and friends. My stand outs were Sarah Hyland & Dominic Sherwood, Eric White & Patricia Arquette, Ben Kinglsey & Daniela Lavendar and her hot damn sexy outfit, Kunal Nayyar & Neha Kapur, siblings Raini & Rico Rodriguez, Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban and their über cuteness, hot couple Joe Manganiello & Sofía Vergara, sisters Rooney & Kate Mara, daughter and father Isan & Idris Elba, and husbands Justin Mikita & Jesse Tyler Ferguson.


The men all looked great the awards this year, notably Brad Goreski in his three-tone suit, Anthony Mackie & Jim Parson who opted for midnight blue, Idris Elba in the slate grey three-piece suit and won not one, but two SAG Awards for ‘Luther’, Michael Shannon who chose an olive-coloured blazer, Johnny Galecki going for an all black everything attire, and Atheer Adel who stood out in royal blue.
