Sandwiched between the Golden Globes and the Academy Awards, the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards are easily dismissed as “less important”, but from a fashion point of view, the SAG red carpet is an excellent platform for trendy, yet very wearable dresses.
Discover the best dressed celebrities at the SAG Awards 2014!
While some celebrities go for a more casual look at the SAG Awards, most of the outfits that made the best dressed list are both gorgeous and more easy to wear than the gowns usually worn at the Oscars, so they can serve as a better inspiration for your special looks of 2014.
Cate Blanchett SAG Awards 2014 Dress
One of the most controversial red carpet looks was won by Cate Blanchett who made both the best dressed list and the worst dressed list for some stylists.

Jennifer Lawrence SAG Awards 2014 Look
After most fashion critics disliked Jennifer Lawrence’s choice of Dior gown at the Golden Globes, the young actress managed to impress in her Dior Haute Couture look at the SAGs.
The strapless dress, a stunning mix of burgundy and navy, shimmered on the red carpet and was perfectly accesorized with Jennifer Meyer jewelry.
