Cynthia Erivo Gives Her Whimsical Corset Dress A Grunge Twist With Chunky Shoes for the 2021 SAG Awards

Cynthia Erivo dressed like a queen for the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards.

For Sunday’s event, Erivo’s stylist, Jason Bolden, shared a slideshow of photos of the actress wearing a dainty corset dress from Alexander McQueen. The gown came in a cream-colored hue, featured a cinched waist and a skirt that billowed out around her.

Erivo kept the look dainty with diamond drop earrings and several rings from Forevermark. As for footwear, however, Erivo added a grunge edge with a pair of chunky black shoes. While the footwear was slightly hidden by her dress, it appears the shoes feature a shiny leather construction and a thick lug sole.

Tonight’s event is honoring the best in television and film for the year. Erivo, as well as Helen Mirren, Jimmy Fallon, Henry Golding and others, will be presenting during the 27th annual ceremony. Lily Collins and Mindy Kaling will also be making appearances.

As for nominees, late actor Chadwick Boseman received four nominations for his roles in both “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “Da 5 Bloods.” His costar Viola Davis is up for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.”

The 2021 SAG Awards air simultaneously on TNT and TBS on Sunday, April 4, at 9 p.m. ET with an encore airing on TNT at 11 p.m.

Erivo has certainly been slaying award season this year. For the NAACP Image Awards last month, the actress was dressed in a sparkly netted dress from Lanvin. The whimsical look featured a jewel embellished top with sheer detailing. The dress was completed with a ruffled salmon pink skirt that billowed out around her. As for footwear, Erivo — who was styled by Bolden again — wore classic white pumps. The shoes featured a pointed toe and appeared to sit atop a stiletto heel.

In February, Erivo had a major moment at the Golden Globes in a neon highlighter green umbrella dress — a look straight off the Paris runway from Valentino Haute Couture. The frock featured a mesh, wetsuit-like construction with thick vertical lines cascading down the center and sides. Erivo teamed the dress with beige leather gloves and bold earrings by Wempe. She finalized the ensemble with metallic platform heels also from Valentino.
