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.

Robbie, who was nominated in the leading actress category for her performance as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in I, Tonya, chose a beaded cream gown with feathered detail around the waist.
