The 2017 SAG Awards Red Carpet

Awards season is in full swing, and Hollywood A-listers are showing off some striking red-carpet styles. From glamorous jumpsuits to uniquely embellished gowns, there are plenty of bold trends to inspire fashionistas and sewing enthusiasts. Actor Thandie Newton’s sequined Ferris wheel-embellished dress, for example, may be over the top for daywear, but it and other red-carpet ensembles offer creative elements we can incorporate into sewing and wearing our own outfits.

Let’s Talk Tulle

Jumpsuits that Suit the Occasion

Gwendoline Christie combined style and comfort in her light-catching, glamorous jumpsuit.

Naomie Harris sported a Lanvin jumpsuit styled by Nola Singer. The striped outfit included a black silk rose embellishment.

Bold Fashion Statements

Nicole Kidman caught everyone’s eye in a sequined Gucci gown. It featured cascading flounces, a plunging neckline, and feathered and beaded parrot head embellishments sewn onto each shoulder. 

Janelle Monae went bold in a midi-length embroidered Chanel dress. She completed the look with matching Chanel floral collar and cuffs.

Thandie Newton wore a Schiaparelli dress embellished with a Ferris wheel, horses, and birds in black sequins. The gown’s asymmetrical collar and one-shouldered sleeve added interest above the waist.  

Nathalie Emmanuel wore an off-the-shoulder dress with hanging sleeves. The heavily beaded black-and-gold gown featured an abstract motif.


Bloom Where You’re Planted

Emma Stone wore a deconstructed Alexander McQueen gown with a skin-baring black lace corset under a lily-pad embroidered bodice and skirt. 

Claire Foy walked the red carpet in a collared Valentino gown that started with a pink slip. The dress’s short-sleeved, sheer black overlay was embellished with a sprinkling of beaded white blooms.

Young Stars Debuting in Fashion

Millie Bobby Brown, who’s 12, wore a belted, Grecian-style Giorgio Armani gown. 

Annalise Basso also chose red with a Bibhu Mohapatra dress. The flowy, full gown with crossover bodice detail included sheer extensions from the off-the-shoulder neckline. 

Suiting Up in Style

Dascha Polanco confidently wore a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier tuxedo with a lacy bra.

Evan Rachel Wood donned a double-breasted, fitted blue velvet Altuzarra tuxedo featuring cigarette pants.
