After a delayed start, the 2022 awards season officially kicked off with a bang last night at the 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Celebs like Selena Gomez, Cynthia Erivo, and Salma Hayek lined the red carpet to celebrate the best in film and television at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, and they didn't disappoint with their wardrobe choices for the glamorous affair.
After last year's virtual SAG ceremony, the nominees and presenters raised the bar for the in-person occasion, stepping out in bold, head-turning looks that will keep us talking for months. Among the designer gowns and dapper suits, there were also quite a few wedding-worthy ensembles that immediately caught our attention, from Lady Gaga’s white Armani Privé dress to Elle Fanning’s sophisticated Gucci suit. Ahead, we rounded up the best wedding inspiration for brides, bridesmaids, and guests from the 2022 SAG Awards red carpet.
Va-va-voom! Lady Gaga was the talk of the SAG red carpet when she made her entrance in a stunning white Armani Privé column dress. The strapless gown featured a sequined bodice and a plunging V-neck—perfect for the daring bride looking to turn heads. The House of Gucci actress kept all eyes on the bold number by sticking with minimal accessories, including a diamond necklace from Tiffany & Co. and hidden sky-high boots.
Elle Fanning proved that you don't need a gown to stand out on the red carpet. In fact, her elegant-yet-understated Gucci ensemble (complete with a white vest and sparkly trousers) was one of our favorite looks of the night. The actress told reporters she went for comfort when choosing the suit-inspired look, saying, “I just didn’t feel like wearing a dress.” It's an ideal get-up for any modern bride or guest looking to prioritize comfort and style.
Venus Williams brought the drama to the red carpet with her white Dolce & Gabbana gown. The tennis star put a modern spin on the bridal corset trend with her silver bustier bodysuit, which peeked out from under the asymmetrical white dress. A thigh-high slit gave the sleek number even more of an edge. The goddess-inspired ensemble would be the perfect addition to any bridal wardrobe, be it for a glamorous bachelorette party look or a bold rehearsal dinner moment.
Alexandra Daddario was the picture of Old Hollywood glamour in her silver Atelier Versace gown, which featured a plunging V-neck and thigh-high slit. The White Lotus actress paired the exquisite dress with side-swept waves and a bold crimson lip, perfectly matching the vintage-looking number. All in all, the entire look would make for a gorgeous reception ensemble for the bride who wants to debut a show-stopping second gown.
Kerry Washington never fails to surprise us with a head-turning red carpet look, and this yellow ballgown by Celia Kritharioti was no exception. The actress kept all eyes on the stunning strapless dress by pairing it with soft cascading waves and simple jewelry. And while the outfit's bold yellow hue might not be a traditional wedding color, it wouldn't be a Scandal to walk down the aisle in it—the gown's fitted corset-style top and long train scream "bridal" to us.
Helen Mirren was a vision in pink at the SAG Awards, where the actress was honored with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award. Her long-sleeved pastel Dolce & Gabbana gown, adorned with 3D pink flowers and paired with a matching headband, would fit right in at a spring or summer wedding on a guest, bridesmaid, or even the bride.
Calling all boho brides. Yellowstone actress Kelsey Asbille glowed at the SAG Awards in a silver slip dress from Commission. She paired the bridal-worthy gown, which featured white lace trim along the neckline and straps and ruching at the bottom, with diamond earrings from David Yurman and strappy silver sandals. The elegant number would be perfect for a bridal shower, bachelorette, or after-party look.
Jennifer Hudson had us dreaming of spring when she stepped on the SAG red carpet in an ethereal pink Vera Wang gown, complete with matching 3D flowers on her shoulder and hip. The floral-inspired dress would be a stunning choice for the nontraditional bride who wants to stand out at the alter, though we would also love this look on a mother of the bride!
Talk about a Cinderella moment! King Richard actress Saniyya Sidney stole the show on the red carpet for her first SAG appearance with her vibrant blue Zuhair Murad ballgown. The strapless, floor-length dress featured layers of gauzy fabric that swirled around Sidney as she posed for photos. We think the princess-worthy look would make for an unforgettable "something blue" moment on a bride or bridesmaids.
Fran Drescher did not disappoint when it came to her first red carpet appearance as the new president of the SAG-AFTRA actors' union. The Nanny actress wowed in a sophisticated black Reem Acra dress with an embroidered neckline and floor-skimming sleeves. While Drescher's gown would be an elegant choice for any wedding guest, we think it's especially perfect for the mother of the bride or groom.
