In our SAG Awards best dressed 2022 list you'll see some show-stopping looks, as the most popular actors of the moment turned out in force last night to put their best sartorial foot forward.

The Screen Actor’s Guild Awards saw all our favorite stars gather, with Netflix’s record-breaking Squid Game sweeping the board with three award wins, as well as a best ensemble win for the cast of Succession. But while actors receiving their well-deserved accolades is nice and all, we can’t help but turn our attention to the red carpet. 

Because who doesn’t love an iconic style moment? Remember Billie Eilish’s stunning Met Gala gown, or all the dreamy looks from the 2021 Golden Globes? Something truly comes over us all when that carpet gets rolled out and celebs debut their seriously glam designer looks.

So let's take a look at the SAG Awards' best dressed stars for 2022, with stunning looks from the likes of Kerry Washington, Lady Gaga, and Selena Gomez.

Lady Gaga

Selena Gomez dominated the carpet with arguably one of the best outfits of the night, wearing a gorgeous black, Oscar de la Renta gown with pouffy sleeves and a mid-rift cut-out. She completed the look with a slicked back bun (perhaps inspired by the popular Olaplex bun?) and some silver jewelry. 

HoYeon Jung

Not only did Squid Game’s HoYeon Jung win Outstanding Actress, but she also won our hearts in her Louis Vuitton crystal-embellished dress. Sleek, glamorous and with a fun thigh-high cut, this ticks all the boxes. 

Cynthia Erivo

Sandra Oh was giving major cosmic vibes in a shimmering silver, tiered Carolina Herrera dress. She also matched her eyeshadow—we love a bit of color coordination!
