The 2022 SAG Awards: Ladies of the Red Carpet - A Hand Tailored Suit

The 2022 SAG Awards: Ladies of the Red Carpet

On 27th February 2022, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (or SAG Awards) rolled out the red carpet once more in Los Angeles, California and welcomed many famous faces to the annual awards. The awards are handed out to those honoured for their achievements in television and film in the last year by the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA). For such a glamorous occasion, the celebrities were dressed up in some dazzling and dapper attire for the 28th SAG Awards and at A Hand Tailored Suit, we've selected our favourite attires from the ladies of the red carpet.

Actress Jessica Chastain was a winner on the night, honoured with the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role award for her appearance in the film, "The Eyes of Tammy Faye". Wearing Dior Haute Couture, the suit was a shimmery silver number in a two-piece form, finished with subtle peak lapels and pockets cleverly tucked away in the front seams for a seamless finish. The construction of the jacket meant the hem would flare out on the sides whilst the curved front edge would soften the impact for such an elegant finish. The fastening was a hook in the centre, aligned perfectly with the top of the trousers that also fall straight down to the floor for a graceful evening look.

Jennifer Hudson was an Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role nominee for her role in the film, "Respect", marking the occasion wearing a gorgeous baby pink one-shoulder evening gown from Vera Wang. The dress was fitted on the bodice with a subtle sweetheart neckline, falling down into a fishtail hem. If the colour of the dress wasn't elegant enough, then the two ruffled fabric flowers - one on the shoulder and one on the waist - would certainly portray that characteristic.

Actress Jen Landon arrived on the SAG Awards red carpet wearing a vibrant floral two-piece suit from Alice + Olivia, as she was among the cast of "Yellowstone" nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. The jacket featured a narrow shawl collar leading down into a one-button front, of which the chosen colour was black to match the backdrop of the suit print. Two flapped pockets sat on the front of the jacket, whilst the hems of the sleeves and jacket aligned perfectly in this tailored cut. The shoulders were softly padded and the trousers tapered to the knee before flaring out gently to the hem that brushes the floor.

Mira Sorvino

Presenting an award at this year's SAG Awards was actress Mira Sorvino who, for the event, sported a bright blue two-piece from Wolk Morais that glimmered even more through the sparkly top worn underneath and her silver jewellery. The blazer featured wide peak lapels positioned quite high also to give the corners of the lapels great height. The shoulders were tailored well leading down into the sleeve cuffs with a four-button arrangement. Both buttons on the jacket front were fastened whilst either side included a patch pocket, a third ticket pocket included on her right. With a gentle curved edge into the jacket hem, the trousers were slim to the knee until they flared out to the bottom, again the length just brushing the floor.

Venus Williams

Tennis champion Venus Williams was in attendance at the 2022 SAG Awards and stunned in a white and silver Dolce & Gabbana dress. The gown was quite asymmetric with the illusion it is made up of two layers: the first being a metallic finish silver sweetheart neckline corset; the second being a white dress with one sleeve. The sleeve is finished well with a strong shoulder to deliver stronger impact on the red carpet, more so than this dress already does, making it a statement piece. With the high side split, the other side drapes down effortlessly to the floor to brush it softly, combining gracefulness and drama in an evening gown.

Desiree Gruber

For her red carpet ensemble, TV producer Desiree Gruber sported quite a cool evening suit that included a pair of slim high-waisted trousers and a sharp white dinner jacket. The monochrome design of the jacket was very bold with the contrasting black double jet pockets, buttons and peak lapels making it statement chic. The welt pocket seen behind the lapel is angled and the shoulders are rounded with padding for a strong yet sleek line across the top. Her shirt was also white with a covered button placket and left open collar to display her gold jewellery.

Lady Gaga

Nominated in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her appearance in the film, "House of Gucci", singer and actress Lady Gaga graced the red carpet in a gorgeous sleeveless evening gown from Armani Privé. The bodice part of the dress is fitted to the waist and drapes down elegantly to the floor to create a subtle train or flared hem. The top part of the white fabric folds back to create crisp edges and an even more dramatic line whilst behind this detail, sits a champagne gold embellished design that really adds the Hollywood glamour to the look.

Kerry Washington

Actress Kerry Washington shone brightly in yellow as she attended the awards wearing a stand-out evening gown from Celia Kritharioti. The design of it was sleeveless as the top of the dress was cut with a wide V-neck that rose to a sharp point either side. The corset-style bodice was fitted and just below was detailed ruching to add texture and depth to the yellow gown. As the ruching gathered just off-centre, pleats and more fabric manipulation formed to create this full fishtail hem and train which followed behind with such statement on what was a statement dress.

Saniyya Sidney

Actress Saniyya Sidney was amongst the cast of the film "King Richard", who were nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and for the night, she wore a dreamy sapphire blue off-the-shoulder gown from Zuhair Murad. With the gown being constructed from just one colour, the draping and fabric manipulation of it was done amazingly, conveying other different blue hues in the folds where the light hits it. The shoulders gather into a ruched wrapped bodice, with a waistband separating the bodice and skirt. The skirt drapes to the floor effortlessly and with its many layers of fabric, creates a gorgeous ballgown style which flares out beautifully with added movement.

 Elle Fanning

Actress Elle Fanning looked very sophisticated in a rather cool Gucci ensemble as she was nominated for her role in the series "The Great", in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category. The trousers were dazzling in the spotlight, cut in a straight-leg style and the hem brushing the floor for an elongated look. They were designed with black sequin stripes all the way down, partnered with the ivory beige waistcoat and blouse which toned down the sparkly effect. The waistcoat itself was finished with a low-scooped shawl collar and three buttons to fasten, finished with a single jet pocket either side and a wide notch hem. The blouse was sheer with double cuffs and a classic collar which secured the large beige bow tie and her pendant necklace in place.

These are just ten of the many stunning outfits that were worn by the ladies of the red carpet at this year's SAG Awards. Check our a few more below! (In order of appearance: Melissa Tang, Amber Friendly, Emilie Livingston, Cynthia Erivo and Cate Blanchett.)
