Hollywood stars dressed to impress as they returned to the red carpet for the start of awards season.

Lady Gaga, Kerry Washington and Ariana DeBose were among the stars bringing a burst of colour to the red carpet as awards season kicked off with the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards.

Hollywood stars marked the return of red carpet fashion, after a long stint of largely virtual ceremonies, with eye-catching gowns.

Washington, who was joined by her former Scandal co-star Tony Goldwyn to present the award for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series to Succession, looked like a ray of sunshine in a bright yellow strapless gown with full skirt by Greek designer Celia Kritharioti.
