Tracy Taylor of Net-a-Porter's The Edit dishes on how you can take SAG Awards style from the red carpet to your wardrobe, stat.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards have come a long way since their casual 1996 debut in Santa Monica. Over the years, stars began opting for couture looks over basic black dresses during the awards season race, directly influencing the way consumers shop.

"This year’s crop of red-carpet looks was as diverse as actors lauded in the event," explained Tracy Taylor, senior style editor for Net-a-Porter's The Edit. “There’s no question that what happens on the red carpet affects the way customers shop for black tie or cocktail attire.” 

Below, Taylor breaks down the three major trends from this year’s event — shimmer and shine, jewel tones and British designers — and how to get the look straight from the e-retailer.

Shimmer & Shine

Alicia Vikander was a red-carpet stunner. The Swedish beauty's look was modern and fashion forward, working a long-sleeve, sequinned column gown in a geometric pattern by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Louis Vuitton — her go-to designer. She was as breathtaking as her award-winning performance in The Danish Girl.

Other actresses who embraced the sparkle trend included Nicole Kidman in a multicolored gown by Gucci and Eva Longoria in a show-stopping emerald green, shimmery Julien Macdonald gown.

Jewel Tones

Julianne Moore took the jewel-tone trend to the max in a Givenchy Haute Couture dress drenched in exuberant chartreuse in shiny lurex. Always one to embrace bold trends in the chicest way, Moore did not disappoint.

The winner of the trend was the stunning and always elegant Naomi Watts. Her blue appliqud Burberry dress was absolutely perfect and complemented her petite frame with a belted waistline. Naomi's romantic makeup and undone hair, befits the vintage nod to her embroidered short-sleeved dress.

Kate Winslet took a more traditional approach to jewel tones, choosing an elegant Armani gown with an A-line silhouette and cap sleeves. The black-trimmed architectural neckline kept the look modern and regal at the same time.

British Designers

Another noteworthy trend, not so noticeable to the eye, was the extensive amount of English designers represented on the red carpet. Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka selected a strapless floral Erdem, Ellie Kemper wore a patterned Peter Pilotto, Christina Ricci chose a pastel rainbow Christopher Kane, Eva Longoria, as mentioned, opted for a Julien Macdonald gown and Claire Danes picked a Stella McCartney number.
