Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium was decked out with the who's who of Hollywood last night to host the 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, where the cameras' flashing lights captured some of the most impeccable looks from this award season so far and it seemed that Arab designers once again revelled in the limelight.

At this year’s event JLo channelled Middle Eastern sophistication in a sleek shoulderless Georges Hobeika gown. The sculptural black dress featured an oversized bow with two gliding ribbons that transitioned on to become a dramatic train. This is not the first time that Jennifer dazzled on the red carpet, nor is it the first time she donned a stunning creation from the Lebanese designer but needless to say, the duo seem to be a match made in heaven.

However J’Lo wasn’t the only one wearing an Arab designer at the prolific event, fellow actress Sian Clifford chose yet another Lebanese designer, Zuhair Murad to dress her for this year's SAG event.

The actress stepped out in a ultra-sophisticated burgundy velvet tuxedo with a plunging neckline from Zuhair Murad’s Autumn/Winter 19 collection.

As for the jewellery, we totally fell in love with some jaw-dropping diamonds, but our attention was captivated by Christina Applegate’s jewels.

The actress chose iconic Egyptian fine jewellery designer, Azza Fahmy to accessorise her look with a par of golden mismatched earrings that featured a crescent moon and a star.

There’s no doubt the SAG’s saw the brilliant work of some of the region’s incredible creative minds, but…what about next week’s Grammys? We’ll just have to wait and see. Watch this space...
