    Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Haute Couture by Riccardo Tisci

    Another Sunday, another awards show. The Screen Actor’s Guide Awards is a bit different from the rest because attending actors don’t try to ridiculously outdo on another as with the Oscars, or add the extra zing as with the Golden Globes. The SAG Awards is as low-key as a red carpet can get, and with that comes some of the most elegant, prettiest dresses that don’t ‘wear’ the wearer… in other words, more class, less schmaltz.
