An Early Spring at the SAG Awards

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been itching for spring to come. The inconsistent weather here in the D.C. area isn’t helping my patience. One day it’s so cold my steering wheel feels like a block of ice, and the next day I’m walking around in cropped jeans and a light jacket.

The red carpet at Sunday’s SAG Awards featured exciting colors and fun florals that made me even more anxious for spring. This red carpet felt especially bright considering almost all of Hollywood dressed in black for the Golden Globes earlier this month to show support for the Time’s Up movement. (I love when people use fashion to make political statements, however!)

Scroll down to check out my take on some of the major trends from this year’s SAG Awards and see my #1 favorite look of the evening.

I’ll be over here dreaming of spring…

p.s. I searched long and hard, but I just couldn’t find out the designers of some of the yellow and white dresses shown below. It’s surprisingly difficult to find that information for lesser-known actors. If anyone knows the designers for the dresses missing labels below, please tell me on Facebook!

Millennial Pink

I’m not going to lie: I kind of hate the name “Millennial Pink.” This soft, ethereal color has always been around, so I think associating it with a particular generation is a little silly. Anyway, I digress. Whatever the name, this color was all over the red carpet at the SAG Awards. My favorite look in this shade of pink was that of thirteen-year-old Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown. Look how cute she is rocking her Converse sneakers with her sequin Calvin Klein dress!

50 Shades of Yellow

From pastel to chartreuse, yellow was a prominent color on the SAG red carpet. This did not come as much of a surprise, since yellow dominated the Spring 2018 runway shows. I guess these Hollywood women decided to get a head start on the trend and rock some yellow in January. I mean, we could all use a little more sunshine, right? I’m not a huge fan of most of these looks, but I do think Sydelle Noel of GLOW really shines in her bright yellow Leanne Marshall gown!

White Out

Pure white is such a stand-out choice, especially for a red carpet event. I just invested in a pair of white, block-heel loafer pumps (yes, they are as crazy as they sound) that automatically boost the interest of any outfit I wear. My favorite white look here has to be Tracee Ellis Ross in a beaded Ralph & Russo number. The Black-ish star looks like a Grecian goddess with that one extra-long sleeve trailing behind her.

Festive Florals

Sure, people wear florals all year ’round, but there’s definitely something spring-like about the floral red carpet looks at the SAG Awards. I love florals (seriously, it’s my go-to choice of print); therefore, seeing many leading ladies sporting flowery looks made me very excited. To me, the clear winner in this category is the show’s host, Kristen Bell. I would wear her fuchsia J. Mendel gown in a heartbeat!

The Best Look of the Evening

Mandy Moore, I bow to you. The This Is Us star glows in this stunning cobalt Ralph Lauren dress. Moore’s look is both effortlessly elegant and extremely eye-catching. It is hands-down my favorite look from the SAG Awards.
