The 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, and as last year’s awards took place virtually, TV and movie stars were eager to make up for lost time and moments. fashion misses on the red carpet. With celebrities like Lady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, Selena Gomez and Nicole Kidman in attendance, there were bound to be some amazing looks on the red carpet! While bright colors, exaggerated silhouettes and Gen Z-focused trends dominated runway fashion, Hollywood took an elegant and dramatic approach tonight, and the result was extra-glam. This year, the drama was written with a capital D, with Deep V-necklines at the forefront of SAG Awards fashion trends.

Deep V trendsetters included fashion royalty on and off screen, with celebrities like Cate Blanchett and Lady Gaga in plunging necklines. While we’re years away from Lady Gaga’s meat dress era, the Gucci House star always knows how to make a statement at an awards show.

Her look was certainly more subtle than some of her previous ensembles, but still a standout choice for the SAG red carpet. She wore a white Armani Privé gown, which featured a shimmering plunging neckline and white flap. A blingy Tiffany & Co. necklace further accentuated the neckline.

You could say she didn’t need the necklace with the sparkly corset layer, but heavy bling was another trend that dominated the carpet. If a dress wasn’t embellished itself, it was sure to be paired with some serious diamond jewelry.

Selena Gomez, for example, looked blindingly beautiful in a classic Oscar De La Renta velvet gown, complete with modern puff sleeves and a relaxed million-dollar Bulgari snake choker with over 200 carats of diamonds. .

Selena’s Oscar de la Renta dress also hit on another upcoming trend: the subtle underbust cutout. The cutout isn’t big enough to warrant a full underboob or ab moment, but rather a small flash of skin to break up the structure of the dress.

Hailee Steinfeld was on board with the trend in a much more assertive way, wearing a beaded black dress by Miu Miu with a major belly cutout.

Below, read on for a few more favorites to put the trend in the spotlight. It looks like awards season red carpet fashion is off to a sexy start!
