Stars Sparkle in Sequins at 2014 SAG Awards
For Saturday night’s 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles, the stars decided to go big and bold with plenty of bling. PHOTOS: The Most Scandalous Looks At The 2013 American Music Awards From Sofia Vergara channeling her inner old Hollywood glamour girl to Jennifer Lawrence doing her best impression of a chic disco ball, a slew of celebs opted for loads of sparkle for their coveted couture. And while they could have easily jazzed up their looks with accessories alone, these leading ladies made grand entrances in glitzy, jewel-encrusted ensembles that flaunted curves, and in one case, a baby bump.

PHOTOS: Red Carpet Looks From The 2013 Country Music Awards “My favorite fashion myth is that studs, sequins, and sparkles are only intended for eveningwear,” explains model and fashion expert Jaimie Hilfiger. “Of course, wearing a sequined mini dress is inappropriate for a daytime meeting, but there are ways for incorporating a bit of bling into your everyday look.” “Next time, when you want to add a little sparkle to your work ensemble, try wearing a top with demure beading or just a bit around the neckline,” she says. “Another way of toning down a sparkly top is to wear a jacket or blazer over a shirt. When wearing a sequined skirt, try pairing it with a structured shirt that is a solid color.” READ: Rita Moreno Shares Her Secrets to Eternal Youth For some inspiration, check out how the stars shined on the red carpet at the SAG Awards:
