Florals, sequins and the color black all took center stage this week. There was a nice mix of Resort, Spring, Pre-Fall and Couture looks with one celeb even reaching back into the archives for a truly amazing gown. The red carpet fashions at the SAG Awards garnered a lot of press, but the parties leading up to the big event also featured some stylish stars. Hemlines covered a wide range from floor-sweeping gowns to knee-length dresses and even minis.
