Awards season is in full swing, and we got yet another dose of Red Carpet fashion at last night’s Screen Actors’ Guild Awards. Compared to the Golden Globes, the gowns were less dramatic and a bit more casual, with the exception of Angie Harmon who must have realized she probably wouldn’t be invited to the Oscars and choose to wear her Academy Awards dress early. White emerged as a huge Red Carpet trend, with Amy Adams, Natalie Portman, and Lea Michele all arriving in ivory. Winona Ryder did the white thing too: She wore a wedding dress. (We know it’s hard to differentiate walking the Red Carpet from walking down the aisle, but seriously, doesn’t she have a stylist to help her with those kinds of critical thinking tasks?) For the most part, those not in white wore crimson. Mila Kunis, Julianna Margulies, and Tina Fey all sizzled in red hot numbers. The 30 Rock star, who has typically struggled with her Red Carpet choices, finally found a gown by Oscar de la Renta that hit the mark. (Way to go, Liz Lemon!)

This season, the hippest handbag shape is square. Labels such as Proenza Schouler, Lanvin and Valentino all sent this more serious, uptown style down the runways. For spring, we recommend taking a break from your slouchy hobo in order to trade up to a structured, ladylike tote. Check out some of our favorites below.
