At the third major Hollywood awards show this season, the stars appeared to have hit their stride, style-wise.

Last night’s SAG Awards red carpet was full of hits and almost devoid of fashion flubs — aside from a few overly busy ensembles and the thigh-slit trend that refuses to die.

Because the SAG only honors actors, this ceremony’s red carpet has even more camera-ready people with symmetrical features than the Golden Globes, the Oscars, the Emmys or the Grammys. Actors who play relatively small parts in ensemble movies and TV shows are invited to the SAG Awards, while they would normally be passed over in favor of the lead at other ceremonies.

For this reason, the movies and television shows with larger casts dominated the red carpet. It seemed like every other actor was from either Game of Thrones or Orange Is the New Black, and memorable, non-lead players from shows such as Vincent Piazza of Boardwalk Empire and Lorelei Linklater of Boyhood got their turn in the spotlight.

However, not every actor was given the chance to speak onscreen, so the stars’ clothes were tasked with much more than just covering their bodies. Click through our slideshow to see what the stars might have been trying to say through their clothing choices.
