These stars truly shone on the SAGs red carpet.

24th Annual SAG Awards - Arrivals

After the fashion blackout at the Golden Globes earlier this month, the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards were awash with colour and shimmer.

Pink was a popular choice on the red carpet but the most stunning dresses featured metallic textures and lots of sparkle.

From chain mail-like fabrics to delicate floral embellishments, this was power dressing at its best with a variety of strong silhouettes and a distinct lack of ‘naked dresses’ compared to previous years.

Here are our ten favourite shimmering looks from the SAG Awards ceremony…

1. Allison Janney

Top of the best-dressed list is Allison Janney, who wore an incredible silver sequinned gown by Yanina Couture to pick up the best supporting actress award for her role in I, Tonya.
