Celebrities dressed to impress at home for the virtual Screen Actors Guild Awards.

For the latest major awards show to take place without a red carpet, stars got dressed up wherever they were in the world and shared their outfits on social media before the pre-taped ceremony aired in the US.

The Crown star Emma Corrin – a nominee for female actor in a drama series – wore a mixed material Prada dress teamed with chunky black boots.

The 25-year-old – who wore her hair in a 90s-inpired curtain look – thanked Prada for her “divine” outfit.

Kerry Washington was nominated for her role in Little Fires Everywhere.

She channelled the 1920s for her at-home SAG Awards outfit, wearing a beaded, bright blue gown with a matching headpiece.

Kaley Cuoco was nominated for her comedy turn in The Flight Attendant.

She also posed near her swimming pool, wearing a hot pink off-the-shoulder gown with eye-catching floral details on the bust.

It was not only the nominees who were getting dressed up.

Mindy Kaling was a presenter during the ceremony and wore a royal blue, floor-length gown for the occasion.

British actress Cynthia Erivo was also a presenter.

She wore a cream-coloured Alexander McQueen dress teamed with chunky black boots.

Actress Jamie Chung made a political statement with her SAG Awards look.

The US actress, who is of Korean descent, wore a bright red Oscar de la Renta gown, explaining in many Asian cultures, “the colour red symbolises joy, luck and happiness”.

In response to the wave of violence against Asian people in America, Chung held up a crimson-coloured handbag bearing the slogan “Stop Asian Hate”.

Bridgerton’s Florence Hunt wore a maroon frilled gown for her remote look.
