Last night, the stars stepped out for the 23rd Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in a kaleidoscope of floral, embroidered prints, bold and bright choices, and perhaps most notably, white gowns that emanated Hollywood glamour. From Taraji P. Henson's ethereal princess gown by Reem Acra to Natalie Portman's retro-inspired gown by Dior, there were plenty of showstopping fashion statements. The theme perfectly suited a night filled with fiery, passionate, politically charged speeches from performers who sang the praises of diversity and inclusion in Hollywood.  

Here are 20 celebrities who made quite the impression with their looks on the SAG Awards red carpet. Talk about style inspo!
