Stars shimmer in sequins and colour on SAGs red carpet

The bright tones were a change from the all-black Golden Globes earlier this month.

Hollywood stars Margot Robbie, Nicole Kidman, Halle Berry and Allison Williams chose shimmering, sequinned gowns for the Screen Actors Guild awards after a Golden Globes ceremony dominated by black.

Kidman, who won a gong for her role as a domestic violence victim in Big Little Lies, opted for an Armani bronze sequinned gown with a large shoulder embellishment.

British star Millie Bobby Brown, who was nominated for her role as Eleven in Stranger Things, chose a pale pink knee-length sequinned dress with a long train and teamed it with white Converse trainers.
