The top looks right off the silver carpet

The coolest thing about this year’s SAG Awards’ red (actually, at this event, the carpet was silver, but that’s beside the point) carpet is that it featured such a plethora of diverse, perfectly executed styles, narrowing down a list to just a number of those who did it best is truly a challenge.

Double nominee this year (lead actress for “Marriage Story” and supporting actress for “Jojo Rabbit”), Johansson has been knocking it out of the park in all of her red-carpet appearances, from the onset of the awards season. Last night’s appearance was no exception, as she wore the custom silk Armani Privé gown is sophisticated and glam-defining teal, with a deep plunge in the front, draped pleating on the hips and crystal-embroidered straps in the back, for additional drama. Perfectly combined with jewelry by Taffin and punchy yet classic makeup and sleeked hair, rounded off ScarJo’s winning appearance.


Jennifer Lopez


As one of those stars that we always have immensely high expectations from, when it comes to red carpet appearances, Lopez rarely misses – in fact, even her near-misses are often the most talked about. This time, best-supporting actress nominee for her role in “Hustlers” opted for an elegantly sleek black number by Georges Hobeika.

The strapless dress features a bow in the lower back area – seemingly, somewhat of a theme for J.Lo’s styling this awards season, concocted by her stylist duo Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn. The big story here, however, are the accessories: Tyler Ellis clutch embellished with Swarovski crystals and (gasp!) Harry Winston diamond jewelry worth over $9 million.

Can you think of the last time Charlize didn’t dominate a red carpet? Tough – we know!

It’s not really a question of ‘will she be amazing?’ but more so of ‘what level of amazingness will this style goddess achieve?’ This time, it was a soaring level of wowness she achieved, rocking a look that is as daring as it is glamorous. Theron opted for Givenchy, wearing a shimmering silver crop top and a high-waisted black crepe, belted skirt.

A high slit in the middle revealed (apart from her ridiculously perfect leg) back leather sandals. In terms of accessorizing, it was successfully achieved by the use of $4 million worth of Tiffany diamonds: a pair of 11-carat diamond earrings and a tennis bracelet that was ingeniously promoted into a headpiece of sorts by hairstylist Adir Abergel, who placed it in her hair, over her part. Stuh-ning!

Cynthia Erivo


If we had to choose the most dramatic styling – and by dramatic, we mean the boldest color choice, done just right – it would have to go with Erivo, a nominee in the lead actress category for “Harriet.” Stylist Jason Bolden chose a custom Schiaparelli haute couture gown, with red bustier with fine draping and a lush, volumized hot pink silk faille skirt with a long train, by Daniel Roseberry. Subdued but perfectly complementing diamond jewelry by Roberto Coin supported the look that simply could not be ignored.

Nominated for her work in “The Morning Show,” Aniston gave us all a surprise when she arrived at the awards due to a huge departure from her signature red carpet style — a variation of an LBD that she always pulls off perfectly, effortlessly and (dare we say?!) Anistonny. This time, she opted for a white, silky, sleeveless, vintage Dior that oozed equal amounts of sultry and sophisticated. Fred Leighton jewels and Aniston’s signature perfect locks rounded off the winning look – and went perfectly along with her actual win in her category, later on, that evening.


Zoë Kravitz

The most incredible thing about this look is the fact that only Kravitz, and perhaps one or two of her colleagues, could pull it off successfully. Albeit, it is difficult to imagine a look that she could not absolutely crush, but this strapless custom Oscar de la Renta column down, in it’s-not-cute-peach-it’s-not-quite-orange shade, with a bow in the front and long white gloves could’ve easily been a debacle.

Instead, this, what we imagine is a nod to old Hollywood and classy, somewhat minimalist turn that spells ultimate charm and elegance, was a high-ranking winner, as far as we’re concerned. Tiffany & Co. jewels and Kravitz’s ridiculously perfect bone structure, definitely added extra points.
