SAG Awards 2018 Red Carpet Trends: Prints Charming

Posted on January 23, 2018

We had no doubt we were going to gather the most notable prints of the night under one post, but we’re not sure they’re notable because of the prints themselves or because this many prints in this wide a range on a major awards show red carpet is a little unlikely.

 

Betty Gabriel in Phuong My

We gay-gasped. The print looks amazing on her – especially the unusual colors of it. But the regal, Game-of-Thrones style of the gown combined with that unusual print is what turned this into a gasp-worthy red carpet moment. LOVED this look.

 

 

Brie Larson in Gucci

We can’t say we’re a hundred percent in love with the shape of this thing, nor are we all that crazy about the trim, but the colors look amazing on her.

 

 

Gina Rodriguez in Rasario

This, unfortunately doesn’t work for us. We don’t love the stained glass quality of it, but the black elements are truly awful.

 

Kelly Marie Tran in Mary Katrantzou

That ruffle is a lot to take, but this print had a way of working on us, becoming more and more beautiful the longer we took it on. We think a simpler skirt design would have shown it off much better.

 

Maya Rudolph in Zac Posen

This is so very her that any quibbles we have are going to sound pointless. We dislike the sleeves and tend to need convincing on small-scale prints or patterns against black backgrounds. If it’s embroidery, it can look awfully folksy if it’s not done well. But like we said, this suits her and it’s fairly pretty, even if the style’s not our fave.

 

 

Samira Wiley in Tadashi Shoji

This was the dress that made us say “We need to do a post on the prints.” What a stunner. Not in love with the proportions of the neckline, but everything else is head-turning.

 

 

Zoe Kazan in Miu Miu

Again with the delicate print on a black background. It’s just our thing. We need convincing some times. Fortunately, we’re convinced on this one. The neckline makes it for her. And the colors look amazing on her.
