With the pomp and formality of the Oscars looming, Hollywood's A-list are saving grandiose gowns for the Academy and having a little fun with their red carpet outfits at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in LA over the weekend.

There were frivolous sartorial displays from the likes of Nicole Kidman in sequinned Gucci, Julianne Moore in lime green Givenchy, Emilia Clarke in hot pink Dior and Laverne Cox in slashed Prabal Gurung.

Daring plunges, eye-catching splits and bright colours were all present, but the truly stand-out hue of the night was blue. A tricky shade to pull off in gown form, a stream of big names, including Naomi Watts, Claire Danes, January Jones and Maisie Williams all opted for the colour.
