Blue may be better known as a cool hue, but it looks like it's heating up the red carpet this season as the trendiest color around. Just weeks after the 2016 Golden Globes, where the sapphire shade reigned supreme, the oceanic hue struck again at the 2016 SAG Awards. A wave of blues took over the red carpet, from cerulean to deep azure.

Room star Brie Larson upped the sex appeal in her sky blue Atelier Versace creation that featured a cut-out slashed across the chest and a dangerously thigh-high slit. Naomi Watts charmed in her navy floral-embroidered Burberry column, while Claire Danes took the minimalist approach in a color-blocked Stella McCartney design.

Maisie Williams gave a bold version of the color a sweet spin in a darling Ermanno Scervino midi-length dress, while Sarah Hyland struck a fierce pose in her royal blue J. Mendel column with a floral lace overlay on the bodice. And finally, Diane Lane was the definition of sophistication in a sleek one-shoulder Angel Sanchez design. Looks like this awards season having the blues is a good thing indeed!
