Is it just us, or did the stars seriously bring their fashion A game at the SAG Awards this year? From shimmering metallics to plunging necklines and even capes (looking at you, Laura Linney!), celebrities' attire certainly stood out.

The colorful and, in some cases, daring ensembles that were on display at the SAG Awards marked a shift in the tone of this year’s award show season. At the Golden Globes, the sea of solid black gowns and suits made a monochromatic and incredibly important statement. While many stars still represented the Time’s Up movement tonight by wearing pins or used their speeches to stand up to sexual misconduct, the fashion at the SAG Awards proved to be a departure.

Award show veterans like Nicole Kidman and Linney made the best-dressed cut — no surprise there. But this year’s cream of the crop also includes a few new faces, like Orange Is the New Black’s Samira Wiley (also starring in a little show you may have heard of called The Handmaid’s Tale).
