Black is back. After the sea of bold hues parading down the red carpet for the past year, black and white styles dominated the red carpet at this year’s SAG Awards.
Anne Hathaway, Amy Poehler, Tina Fey among the bevy of stars sticking to all-black looks, while Sofia Vergara, Jayma Mays and Kerry Washington opted for crisp white gowns. Refusing to pick sides, January Jones, Claire Danes and Julianne Moore combined the two in elegant black-and-white gowns.
Though there was no gray area when it came to the dominant palette of the night, the majority of stars who did break free from the black-and-white pack, including best-dressed stars Amanda Seyfried, Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Kidman, stuck to regal midnight and purple gowns.
Still, a few signs of spring were blooming on the red carpet. Brightening things up, Freida Pinto, Lea Michele and Nina Dobrev popped in hot pink gowns.Though metallics have slipped from their number one spot this awards season, they continue to remain one of the red carpet’s lasting trends, and one look at Jennifer Garner, Julia Stiles and Naomi Watts’ shiny looks last night and its not hard to see why.
As for silhouettes, the column gown reigned supreme. Mays and Maria Menonous jazzed up the simple silhouette with elegant trains, while Pinto, Jessica Paré and Giuliana Rancic carved out their waists in straighter styles with bold belts.
Strapless continues to be the big neckline trend this season, as shoulders were showcased at nearly every turn. However, we also saw straps emerge as an up-and-coming alternative to the sans-straps styles that have been holding strong for several seasons.
