The SAG Awards Red Carpet Lost The Black, But Not The Movement

All eyes are turned towards the red carpet this evening for more than just the Screen Actor's Guild Award nominees. Sunday's 2018 SAG Awards marks the first major Hollywood red carpet since celebrities opted for all black ensembles in honor of the #TimesUp movement during the Golden Globes. While we weren't sure whether to anticipate an entire season of noir-only numbers, it looks like Hollywood has given the okay to the return to a more colorful dress code. But don’t think the industry is slowing down on the movement just yet: While there may be more variety when it comes to shades, silhouettes, and styles, many attendees are asserting their continued solidarity with Times Up pins and continued vocal support via red carpet interviews.

On a more style-minded note, though, the evening's round-up of red carpet looks actually has us nostalgic for the uniformity of an all-black red carpet; there's something to be said for the creativity that can emerge from a restrictive dress code. But that doesn't mean we aren't here for the statement pieces marching down the carpet this evening. From graceful all-white dresses (a stark contrast from the Golden Globes) to Stranger Things' latest breakout teen, Sadie Sink, in a hurts-its-so-good Chanel number, we're reminded that there's power and beauty in any and all ways we dress.

Millie Bobby Brown is pre-teen queen at navigating the line of being chic while still age-appropriately playful. This latest example has her pairing Converse (stars, they're just like us!) with a sequined Calvin Klein halter dress. Can we take this as a cue that the high-low hem is coming back?
Hot off the premiere of her new show, Grown-ish, Yara Shaidi proves her style has grown, too. While we've always been a fan of her red carpet choices, this Ralph Lauren jumpsuit is a mature new direction for the actress-slash-model-slash-activist — and we love it.
Stranger Things keeps pumping out our newest style crushes. Sadie Sink is sliding into our hearts, right next to her costar Millie Bobby Brown, in this drop-waist beaded Chanel dress.
How do you dress when you emulate grace and class? Like royalty, of course. Anyone not here for Tracee Ellis Ross in her couture Ralph & Russo draped Grecian-inspired gown can see themselves out.
In true project promotional form, Margot Robbie's feathered and embellished Miu Miu gown is fit for the ice, save for the length.
What's cooler than an actress who starts her career off with a film as strong as Ladybird? An actress who says Screw the system, I'm going to wear something I know I look good in my own prom dress. Beanie Feldstein is showing us she's a force to be reckoned with (and a force to admire).
Honestly, Lupita Nyong'o looks like the Kirakira+ app come to life in this stunning Ralph & Russo gown, and we're not mad at it.
Pastel pink gowns are trending tonight with Dakota Fanning joining the ranks. This ballet slipper Prada gown just stops short of being saccharine with crystal embedded stitching.
She wears her sunglasses at night (with Alberta Ferretti, no less). Is it presumptuous to think that infamous front row sunglasses wearer, Anna Wintour, would give an admiring head nod to Susan Sarandon's choice of accessory?
The only thing more show-stopping than just how good her hair is is this bubblegum pink multi-tiered gown. Suffice it to say we heart Kate Hudson's Valentino gown.
Fun fact: You don't have to have access to exclusive designer duds to make your mark on the red carpet. Olivia Munn allegedly copped her Oscar de la Renta gown straight from the British e-commerce site, Farfetch — and we're very much here for it.
A classic leg-slit, but make it sequined. Connie Britton does the go-to red carpet silhouette in an unexpected, rose gold Elisabetta Franchi take.
Under all of that old school Hollywood glam is a stunning Uzo Aduba in a custom Christian Siriano caped number. Can someone give us a tutorial on how to accomplish her waves, stat?
Our lady (bird), Saoirse Ronan, makes a ribbon belt werk in a sweet Louis Vuitton dress.
Did you know you've actually seen this dress before? Well, at least it's shape anyway. Mandy Moore's bold cobalt blue slip dress is the ultimate Mandy Moore throwback. According to her stylist, the Ralph Lauren team re-made Moore's red carpet dress from the Saved premiere in a custom fabric with modern alterations.
We loved Gina Rodriguez's Rasario gown almost as much as her Time's Up pin on her dress's bodice.
Is Brie Larson in custom Gucci everything we wish we could look like for a red carpet appearance? No contest. This gown takes sequins and floral to new heights.
Elisabeth Moss gives us a lesson in how going back to basics looks anything but basic. The Handmaid's Tale star forewent any frills with a simple Adam Selman halter dress that shines.
Mary J. Blige is a triple threat: musician, actress, style star. The Mudbound star brought drama to the red carpet in a one-shouldered Jean Louis Sabaj gown that toed the line of costume and couture beautifully. A dress that does it all for a woman who does it all. We expect nothing less.
Greta Gerwig just gets us. Is there anything not to love about this Bottega Veneta look?
Fashion as armor? You bet. In a silver Yanina Couture dress, Allison Janney reminds us of the power in clothing — especially ones that resemble steel plates.
Oh my, Maya. Those tiered sleeves! That sheer overlay! You're already an icon for the people, but you in this Zac Posen number puts you at the top of our style icons, too.
File Sally Hawkins in Dior at 2018s SAG Awards in "how to convince everyone that a dizzying print is a very, very good idea."
A short list of Danielle Brooks achievements: graduating from Juilliard, playing the first black female character on Girls, designing her own fashion collection, and nailing the red carpet, especially in this sequined, dip-dye-esque Marc Bouwer look.
