The 29th Screen Actors Guild Awards were held at Fairmont Century Plaza, California, on February 26 2023, to honour the achievements in film and television performance. The stars graced the red carpet with tones of pink, yellow, brown and stunning forever black. The dramatic trails, sequins, bodycon silhouettes and showbiz ruffles added extra pomp to the star-studded event.
Some of the most-loved looks came by several stars gracing the red carpet this year. Michelle Yeoh bagged the Best Film Actress award for her role in the sci-fi comedy film ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’. Yeoh wore a stunning black Schiaparelli couture gown adorned with a swath of amber-yellow frizz and exquisitely accessorised with Moussaieff jewellery. ‘Wednesday’ star Jenna Ortega carried her gothic glamour wearing a one-shoulder thigh-high slit black leather Versace dress. Andrew Garfield of ‘The Amazing Spider Man’ oozed the elegance of a Valentino suit, a crisp open shirt and Santoni shoes.
The stage set festooned with some memorable moments, including James Hong busting a move as his fellow cast accepted the award while paying tribute to him. ‘The Scream Queen’ Jamie Lee Curtis delighted the audience with her humorous nature and described herself as a ‘nepo baby’ while delivering her acceptance speech saying, “I am 64 years old and this is just amazing”. Sally Field received the Lifetime Achievement honour for her rich and layered career.
