While there's undeniably a weight that a vote from the Hollywood Foreign Press or the Academy holds (albeit controversy often notwithstanding), there's a certain camaraderie that comes with earning a nomination and—even better—a win from SAG-AFTRA. The Screen Actors Guild Awards is the award show for the actors, by the actors—a chance for thespians to recognize their peers for their outstanding work, perennially as it relates to the lens of the audience rather than the critics (which has made for fascinating discrepancies between SAG wins and those of the upcoming Oscars).
The SAG Awards red carpet (or rather, the silver carpet) is certainly not without its glamor, but historically, the reverberating solidarity of the evening brings a warmer, more relaxed vibe that lends itself to especially experimental looks. Ahead, our favorite looks of the night, from Lupita Nyong'o to Sophie Turner.
Lupita Nyong'o's beauty look was created by her longtime makeup artist Nick Barose, using lash products from Lashify, Lancome Juicy Tubes ($20), and Lancome complexion products. Her hair was styled by celebrity hairstylist Vernon Francois using Matrix products, including Length Goals Extensions Perfector Multi-Benefit Styling Spray ($18), and High Amplify Proforma Hairspray ($17).
Breakout Harriet star Cynthia Erivo is walking the 2020 Sag Awards red carpet wearing bleached hair and brows, spidery lashes, and blue-grey shadow on her upper and lower lash lines. Her makeup was created by Terrell Mullin using Armani Beauty products, including Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow ($36), Luminous Silk Foundation ($64), and more. Meanwhile, her hair was styled by Coree Moreno using Dove Hair to create finger waves: Amplified Textures Twist In Moisture Shaping Butter Cream ($7, available in February), Amplified Textures Shine & Moisture Finishing Gel ($7, available in February), Style+Care Micro Mist Extra Hold Hairspray ($5), and more.
