Hollywood Stars Chose Lebanese Designers for Their Virtual Appearances at the 2021 SAG Awards

Although virtual, last night’s  27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) did not keep Hollywood stars from dressing in show-stopping outfits. In the absence of the red carpet, stars took to Instagram to show off their outfits for the pre-recorded awards through portraits which are starting to become a norm at virtual award shows.

Some of the best dressed included British-American actor Lily Collins who was a presenter at the event and wore a bedazzled pink dress from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika’s spring 2018 couture collection. American actor and SAG awards nominee Jurnee Smollett also made an appearance in a dress by another Lebanese couturier, Zuhair Murad. The voluminous fuchsia-colored ball gown featured a plunging neckline and was plucked from the designer’s pre-fall 2021 collection. Lastly, nominated for The Flight Attendant American singer Merle Dandridge chose a black and silver jumpsuit with a bright blue bow for the occassion, from Georges Chakra’s fall 2018 couture collection.

Among other nominees, Viola Davis took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for her iconic role in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom in a bright green Louis Vuitton dress. For her portrayal of Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit, Anya Taylor-Joy won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries, which she accepted in a beige and black Vera Wang dress. American actor Kerry Washington paid homage to the roaring twenties with a heavily suquined royal blue Etro dress, which she paired with a matching headpiece. Irish actor Nicola Coughlan known for her role in Bridgerton as Penelope Featherington, also made best dressed lists for her virtual appearance in a black Christian Siriano dress.
