The Screen Actors Guild Awards is always a fun show to watch. Celebs are usually a little more relaxed, as they are judged by their own peers, but fortunately when it comes to style they all wore their Sunday best. ‘Modern Family,’ ‘Boardwalk Empire’ and ‘The Help’ were all crowned big winners, and many of its stars wowed on the red carpet.

The carpet was filled with color, jewels, risks and old Hollywood glam. Although some opted for a classic feel, I must say I was impressed by the array of gowns on display and the stars truly strutted their stuff.

Here are a few of the looks that caught my attention.

Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen — She truly masters the red carpet look. In this case, she opted for a black gown that was risky and playful, yet she pulled it off. The detail on the bodice was incredible and her Tiffany and Co. jewels were exquisite. 

Zoe Saldaña in Givenchy Haute Couture — Whoever dressed Ms. Saldaña needs to win an award! This dress debuted on the Paris runway nearly four days ago and already made its way onto A-list stardom. This is a daring, fashion forward look that may start some sartorial debates, but its details are divine and it works very well with Zoe’s skin tone. 

Julie Bowen in Temperley — The color of this dress and the shoulder details are incredible, but its back was the piece the resistance, as it was completely open. The ‘Modern Family’ star always kills it on the carpet. I also love her hair pulled back on a pony tail. 

Emily Blunt in Oscar de la Renta — As soon as she stepped on the carpet, the Twitterverse lit up. Everyone commented on how amazing this bright green dress with a thigh-high split was. It was indeed flawless and it worked so well with her hair pulled back and minimal jewels. John Krasinski is one lucky guy.

Tilda Swinton in Lanvin — This trendsetting star, known for pushing the boundaries when it comes to red carpets, went the classic route in this Lanvin number. 

Natalie Portman in Gianbasttista Valli — After winning a Golden Globe, a SAG award and the coveted Oscar last year, the new mom was back in the spotlight, but this time as a presenter. The petit star chose a monochromatic look and kept the accessories to a minimum. Her figure looks fantastic after giving birth to baby Aleph less than a year ago. 

Viola Davis in Marchesa — Viola was indeed the belle of the ball tonight. Not only she nabbed the Best Actress award, but the cast of ‘The Help’ also won for Best Ensemble. Her marchesa gown made quite a statement with its rose gold floral embroidery bodice that showed her fit physique. The look was complete with stunning earrings and bangles accompanied with smoky eyes and a sexy ‘do.

Rose Byrne in Elie Saab — The ‘Bridesmaids’ star took a serious gamble by wearing a sequined jumpsuit with a plunging neckline. It works well with her bob and I love the 1970s vibe it brings. Although not mainstream and few people can pull it off, Rose absolutely rocked it and I applaud her for this choice!

Michelle Williams in Valentino — This is Hollywood glamour at its finest. Michelle is known for her impeccable sense of style and this number is certainly no exception. The winning touch? She went sans baubles, making her pixie cut and neckline the main focus.
