The academy season is sure in full swing, and with that, all eyes fall to the red carpet. Last week we saw the bold looks from the SAG Awards where sparkle, deep v necklines and draping chiffon were at the plenty. Perhaps the SAG’s have set the trends for the rest of the season? Check out the top red carpet trends below:

1Colours of Royalty

Colour can often be the show stopper when it comes to the red carpet, and royal blues and greens were out to make a statement. Marisa Tomei from Empire 51 nailed the look in this Zuhair Murad gown, adding the gold belt to create extra shape and break up the green and sparkle.


Going Deep

If there is one thing to take note from the SAG Awards it’s to work the ‘v’ and we’re not talking vino. Plunging necklines and deep v’s were all the rage on the carpet. Whether it was Susan Sarandon’s controversial cleavage or Eva Longoria’s perfect pair, the deep v was certainly a show stopper. See Carrie Brownstein for inspo when mixing sex appeal with class.


Here comes the sun

Yellow is certainly making headway on recent red-carpets and the SAG Awards were no exception. Bright and bold was certainly the go for Sola Bamis, whereas Hannah Murray opted for simple yet sunny in her gown. The winner? Lily Rabe, nailing the colour, shape and accessories.


All that glitters

Glitter and sparkle have always been a consistent when it comes to the wardrobes of the stars and this year, it ramped up a notch. There was no escaping the beautiful bronzed embellishments of Eva Longoria’s Julia McDonald dress and the jaw-dropping Louis Vuitton gown worn by Alicia Vikander.

5Drape Queen

A structured dress may often take the limelight, but it’s hard to go wrong in a classic draped dress. Worked by Joanne Froggatt, Stephanie Drake and Laura Prepon plus many more, it was Laverne Cox who took it to the next level showing a bit of leg, sass and attitude in her Prabal Gurung gown.
