  • The 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards have been handed out, and although the ceremony was pre-taped with no red carpet, plenty of stars still got dressed up at home to celebrate.
  • This year, it was the men of Hollywood who really brought their A-game to the ritzy ceremony.
  • We, of course, take a quick look back at the actresses who dazzled at home for the virtual proceedings. 

The men of Hollywood brought their A-game to a no red carpet 2021 SAG Awards. 

Jared Leto in a lavender Gucci suit and a seashell clutch in hand; Leslie Odom Jnr's multicolour bleed Berluti suit and matching turtleneck; Daveed Diggs in Versace; not to mention Jason Sudeikis’ ‘My Body, My Choice’ Gucci sweater - are just some of the looks that got a nod from us.

But, even more memorable, were the real red carpet-worthy looks sported by some of Hollywood's finest actresses.  

Michaela Coel

With a well-deserved nomination for Outstanding Performance By a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series, the British star dressed the part in this Eledzine gown and Wild Moon headpiece.   

Kerry Washington 

Kerry's custom ETRO mermaid look - and stacked Bulgari jewels - was arguably the best-styled at-home shoot of the evening. 

Emma Corrin 

With this Prada look, the actress we now know as 'Princess Diana' is officially this awards season's red carpet darling. 

Viola Davis 

In Louis Vuitton. We don't often see Louis Vuitton do brights on the red carpet, but this shade of green is as flattering as ever on Viola.

Cynthia Erivo 

She hasn't missed one beat since red carpets went virtual. This time, it's thanks to Alexander McQueen. 

Nicole Kidman

Ethereal is the word, and Armani Privé is the designer defining it on Nicole Kidman. 

Jurnee Smollett

Good to see Zuhair Murad is still making red carpet headturners. We love this fuchsia gown and its equal parts legs-and-décolleté reveal. 

Nicola Coughlan

Bridgerton's Penelope did always wear the more eye-catching dresses, so it's hardly surprising that her Christian Siriano gown is on best-dressed lists.

Helen Mirren

Dame Helen Mirren proving that pink and red are still a sweet duo worth donning in this Badgley Mischka gown.
