It goes without saying that the SAG Awards’ red carpet is heavy on drama. When actors come together to celebrate their own guild, there’s bound to be a degree of spectacle. And this year the stakes were raised. Nominees and presenters who descended on the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles all seemed to have one thing in common: an extroverted approach to dressing. The evening crop-top became an unexpected instant hit—we’re looking at you Charlize and Givenchy!—and skirts over pants were officially trending thanks to Gen-Z beauties such as Millie Bobby Brown in Louis Vuitton and Maya Hawke in Giambattista Valli.
Whether they were making a grand entrance (who dared look away when Cynthia Erivo waltzed in wearing that hot pink Schiaparelli confection), or captivating the runway faithful à la Gwendoline Christie in gothic black Rick Owens ruffles, the best-dressed guests of the night maximized their moment in the spotlight.
