So, The SAG Awards Red Carpet Happened

Here are our 'best of's and 'most likely to's of the night.

Real talk: It feels extremely strange—surreal, even—to tune into a sparkly, shiny red carpet with the mission of commenting on dresses when elsewhere in the world, thousands are protesting President Trump’s horrific immigration ban. But in the case that you need to look at something sparkly and shiny for, like, ninety seconds, here—our ‘most likely to’ fashion superlatives, SAG Awards 2017 edition.

MOST LIKELY TO GET YOU TO WEAR MORE COLOR TOMORROW: MICHELLE DOCKERY
I just realized Michelle Dockery has not been on a red carpet in a minute. Am I hallucinating? Just me? In any case, the Skittles-like palette of her Elie Saab dress has me wishing she were around for more.

MOST LIKELY TO GET EVERYONE TO EMBRACE HORIZONTAL STRIPES: YARA SHAHIDI
First came the dizzying Off White gown at the People's Choice Awards, which the Black-ish star is following up with this Naeem Khan. More of this, please!

MOST LIKELY TO LEAVE YOU WITH YOUR JAW ON THE FLOOR: VIOLA DAVIS
Well, damn. It doesn't get much more regal than this pearly white Vivienne Westwood.

MOST LIKELY TO SEND YOU DOWN AN ECOMMERCE RABBIT HOLE: CLAIRE FOY
Pretty no one other than Claire Foy could get us wanting to channel the whole refined-forest-fairy vibe she has going on. The dress, of course, is Valentino.

MOST LIKELY WORN TO WIN OVER FASHION FOLK: NICOLE KIDMAN
It's 2017. No one wears an emerald green, sequin dress with large parrots protruding from their shoulders without expecting to get roasted by some corners of the Internet, and alternately praised by others. Nicole Kidman, in Gucci, is doing the latter by harnessing the powers of Alessandro Michele's to earn her gold stars with fashion-y folk. And for the record, it worked.

BEST CASE FOR COUTURE MATERNITY CLOTHES
If Natalie Portman's white Dior gown doesn't inspire pregnant women everywhere to dress up (and designers to make and sell those dresses), I don't know what will.

MOST LIKELY TO NEVER WEAR A FULL DRESS AGAIN: EMMA STONE
So, yes, this Alexander McQueen dress looks like it's only half on, but Emma Stone looks so incredible there's no reason for her to try any other look again.

BEST REASON TO WEAR YOUR COAT AS A DRESS: CHRISSY TEIGEN
If your coat is long and silky and black like Teigen's, all you need is a belt and your red carpet ready.

MOST LIKELY TO CONVINCE YOU THAT BEDAZZLING IS PRACTICAL: TARAJI P. HENSON
Turns out they do a great job of covering your nipples—and look great doing it.

BEST CONFIRMATION OF THE MOST RELIABLE FASHION RULE: SARAH PAULSON
When in doubt, black and white—and a red lip—will always be a sartorial win.
