While the Screen Actors Guild Awards may not be the most popular or have a controversial host, the trends we saw on the red carpet, as well as on the main stage, are worthy of some notable mentions. Leo DiCaprio won a SAG for his work in “The Revenant” and basically sealed the deal for an Oscar win this year. If you didn’t catch the awards, apart from Leo’s momentous win, he brought a pretty interesting date: his vape pen. Don’t believe us? Google it. Most celebrities who were in attendance brought their A-game to the red carpet, while others failed in more ways than one — here are the best and worst dressed.

Rooney Mara: Best Dressed

Mara attended the SAG Awards with her sister, Kate, in a black Valentino gown. The gown features a deep-v neckline and open back. Mara donned a black cape over the gown, which she removed for pictures. The “Carol” actress wore her hair in a high, slicked back ponytail and boasted neutral-toned makeup that accentuated the plunging neckline and open back of the dress. She followed suit by wearing minimal jewelry except for a couple of rings. — Carly Colonnese

Nicole Kidman: Worst Dressed

To be honest, I totally forgot about Nicole Kidman. So first of all, due to my lapse of judgment in regard to her existence, I thought nothing could shock me more than seeing her at the SAG Awards, but then the hideous, multi-colored ruffled catastrophe she had on managed to do the job. Gucci dropped the ball on this one. Reminiscent of the cartoonish colored scheme of the Powerpuff Girls, nothing can make me like this dress, or Nicole Kidman for that matter. Call me biased if you must, but this thing is beyond saving. Nicole, not even Scientology can help you now.— Mariam Sheikh

January Jones: Worst Dressed

Jones came to the SAG Awards this past Sunday in a seafoam green organza dress. The material of the garment made for an ill-fitting tulle mess. The draping of the front of the dress created a boxy frame for Jones, and it ended up looking too big for the “Mad Men” star. Although the front of the dress was disastrous, the back of the Grecian-style Schiaparelli gown was artfully draped and layered. Jones accessorized her fantastical gown with gold jewelry and a smoky-eye.  — Carly Colonnese

Alicia Vikander: Best Dressed

It’s official. I just so happen to have the biggest girl crush on Alicia Vikander. And why not? She is a powerhouse these days in Hollywood in both the film and fashion departments. Her gowns for each award show this season have all been equally on point. Donning a sequined, floor-length, color-blocked gown by Louis Vuitton, Vikander managed to bring both class and trend to the carpet even though she showed up solo without her boo Michael Fassbender (whom I also love). Power couple made in heaven, if I ever saw one. — Mariam Sheikh

Julianne Moore: Worst Dressed

Julianne Moore has been doing these carpets for years. She has a routine; she shows up wearing the best makeup looks, high-end jewelry and she is always wearing some Givenchy. So one would expect nothing to go wrong with this foolproof equation, right? But her get-up did go horribly wrong: she stepped out in a Givenchy creation that had potential, with the exception of its vomit-green color. Looking like Oscar the Grouch from Sesame Street, all Moore was missing was her silver garbage can to dump that piece of trash in. Too harsh? Just look at the outfit. — Mariam Sheikh

Kiernan Shipka: Best Dressed

Truly, Kiernan Shipka can do no wrong. Not only does she have the poise and confidence of someone that knows they have Jon Hamm’s unfailing love and support, she has the red carpet prowess to be on par with Alicia Vikander and Emilia Clarke. The 16-year-old shined in a floral gown by the always-cool Erdem. The strapless eggplant gown with gorgeous blue florals and delicate bustier, matched with Shipka’s perfect blown-out blonde tresses, give us hope that the next Emma Watson is on her way. — Mara MacLean

Christina Hendricks: Worst Dressed

Compared to her "Mad Men" co-star, Kiernan Shipka, Christina Hendricks sadly was the ultimate red carpet fail. Wearing a Christian Siriano design, Hendricks appeared swathed in metallic fabric. The gown featured a chunky bow and oversized train that didn’t add to the actress’s gorgeous frame. The bow, the shiny fabric, the one-shouldered sleeve and the massive train all made for a completely overwhelming look. Hendricks tried for dramatic and came out drab. —Mara MacLean

Saoirse Ronan: Best Dressed

Saoirse Ronan’s red carpet look paralleled her acting: simple, powerful and mesmerizing. In a soft pink Michael Kors dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels, Ronan showed just how stunning a pared back look can be on the red carpet. The Irish actress pulled her look back to show off her gorgeous Forevermark Diamond earrings that twinkled to compliment her softly sparkling pink sequin gown. — Mara MacLean

Brie Larson: Best Dressed

Me, you and your grandma have a lot in common as of late, and by that I mean Brie Larson is our “it” girl. She somehow managed to upstage her Golden Globes look with a powder blue Versace number, replete with Swarovski ties. Any client of Donnatella’s is a friend of fashion indeed. — Caroline Filips

Kate Mara: Worst Dressed

Kate Mara stepped out in a beige Valentino gown. Along with her sister Rooney, Kate’s gown featured a deep v-neck and side cutouts. However, Rooney’s black gown completely outshined sister Kate. Weirdly, at some angles, Mara’s gown looked incredibly elegant; the black bands perfectly accentuating the soft dress and the actress’s elegant frame. From the front, sadly, the dress looked more like taupe slivers of grandma’s curtains barely covering Kate’s chest — bummer. — Mara MacLean

Eva Longoria: Best Dressed

Since “Desperate Housewives,” Eva Longoria’s life has kind of gone to shit. She got divorced from her husband and has been essentially nonexistent on the television or movie front for some time, until now. Debuting in her new (semi) hit show “Telenovela,” it seems Longoria is out of hibernation mode and is getting her shit together, starting off with this amazing Julien Macdonald dress. Skin tight, see through and an ethereal deep forest green color (take notes, Julianne) she stunned in this embellished gown, giving a much needed pop of color and energy to the SAG red carpet. — Mariam Sheikh

Kristen Wiig: Best Dressed

I have a soft spot in my heart reserved for any starlet that deviates from the requisite awards season regalia and opts for a jumpsuit on the red carpet, and Wiig secured her spot with a Rouland Mouret one-piece. A double take revealed the asymmetric back detail and fully stole my heart. Ily, Kristen, ily. — Caroline Filips

Ellie Kemper: Worst Dressed

I’m unsure who thought it a good idea to render amoebic prints into wearable gowns, but whoever it is, I hate them and they need a new life path. Case-in-point: EK at the SAGs. — Caroline Filips

Sola Bamis: Worst Dressed

If Bamis was channeling her inner housewarming gift-wrapped bottle of wine, she certainly succeeded. — Caroline Filips

Kate Winslet: Best Dressed

If you’re ever looking for “class” on the red carpet, Kate Winslet is always there to serve it. This year she wore a polished, green Giorgio Armani dress. With a plunging V and the soft structure of a mermaid gown, Winslet and her curves are looking better than ever. — Hannah Sparks

Leonardo DiCaprio & his vape pen: Worst Dressed

Seriously disappointed in Leo right now. So, he started off fine on the red carpet in a Giorgio Armani tuxedo. Later on during the actual ceremony, a clip of DiCaprio using a vape pen flashes across the screen. Why, Leo? Smoking that vape makes you look like a huge douche. Please, never again. — Hannah Sparks

Claire Danes: Worst Dressed

I don’t know why, but the Stella McCartney dress that Danes chose to wear to the awards reminds me of a stewardess’s uniform. At first glance I was feeling the two-tone vibe. After a close examination of the situation, I decided she looks like a stewardess. Danes is such a pretty woman, and the dress does nothing for her. Time to leave before you miss your flight, Claire. — Hannah Sparks
