While we celebrated Auckland Anniversary over the weekend, all the way in Los Angeles the stars celebrated the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Honouring the best performances in television and film from 2016, the Awards are the perfect time to not only style spot but to uncover some of the best beauty looks for the start of 2017.
Bright and colourful eyeshadow is definitely hard to pull off at the best of times, but these two leading ladies blew us away with their out-there looks. TV star Sophia Bush's hot pink lid matched her dress perfectly. It was fun, flirty and exactly what we want to see more of on the red carpet in 2017. Her latest performance in the movie La La Land has already won her a tonne of awards, but Emma Stone's emerald eye look at the SAG Awards stole our hearts. The pop of green brought out her beautiful eyes and complimented her unique hair colour.
Hair accessories are a hard look to come by when flicking through red carpet galleries, but these ladies left us wanting more. Janelle Monae gave us total pixie vibes with her florally decorated space buns, Danielle Brooks stole the hair award with her updo embellished with silver jewellery, and Vanessa Kirby's silver chain plait is total #hairgoals.
It's a red carpet go-to, but even after all these years we cannot get enough of this classic look. Ariel Winter's punchy coral lip totally popped against her dark, wavy hair and Maisie Williams' gothic burgundy lip perfectly juxtaposed her soft pink satin gown. We're telling you, you really can't go wrong with a bold lip, simple eyes and wavy hair.
While we love the elegance of a sleek ponytail, we can't help but admire these textured hair looks. If we do say so ourselves, Tracee Ellis Ross has the best curls in Hollywood and is often seen rocking her natural afro on the red carpet. While we love her natural hair, we can't help but swoon over her slicked back textured fishtail plait for the SAG Awards. Brie Larson gave us total 90's vibes with her textured wavy updo and peachy lips.
We have to give a special shout out to Taryn Manning for her unique pastel pink hair colour paired with a burgundy lip and dress. While many will say this look isn't suitable for an award ceremony, we can't help but applaud The Orange is the New Black star for breaking the red carpet beauty stereotype. You go girl!
