With black the prevailing colour on the red carpet at the SAG Awards tonight, it's fair to say that more than a few of the beauties at the Shrine Auditorium played it safe.
But even the kindest hue of the night let down some unlikely characters, including Glee's Jane Lynch, Modern Family's Julie Bowen and the legendary Sigourney Weaver.
Jane, 52, attempted to rock it out in a David Meister Signature gown that was sympathetic to her trademark style but was a little too young for her to comfortably style out... it also seemed to offer the beloved comedian little support around her cleavage.

Bowen, 42, opted for a long-length leather Johanna Johnson gown which wasn't the worst look of the night but left her looking drained and again lacked support.
No Glee for Sue: Jane Lynch misfired in this black gladiatorial number that offered her little support and was too young for her 52 years at the SAG Awards on Sunday night in L.A.
But it was the legendary Sigourney Weaver, 63, who suffered the most in her shapeless satin frock.
Homeland's Morena Baccarin, 33, needed full marks for trying something different in her flamboyant Basil Soda gown, but it didn't flatter her raven-haired beauty.
Bright but not right: Downton Abbey's Sophie McShera, who plays scullery maid Daisy, bombed in shapeless yellow satin while Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O' Dell looked like she was being strangled in her turquoise glitter asymmetric number
Close but no cigar: the Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco misfired this red Romona Keveza dress, but it was her helmet style hair that let the whole look down
Jaimie Alexander, 28, lost a chance to set her similarly Snow White looks off in a show-stopper and instead failed miserably in a ruched black Marc Bouwer number that looked too flat in colour and too fussy in style.But colour was no safe route to freshening up a red carpet look.
Grey day: Johnny Galecki and Kelli Garner won no prizes for their dismal attire
Downton Abbey's Sophie McShera, 27, slipped into a mustard satin draped number that was a disaster but her lovely smile distracted from the horror of seeing the Yorkshire lass out of her scullery uniform.

Texture trauma: Two beautiful women - Modern Family's Julie Bowen and the iconic Sigourney Weaver - but their leather and satin black gowns did them no favours
The Entertainment Tonight presenter, 46, looked uncomfortable in the structured dress which looked like it pulled sharply across her neck.
Amber Riley, 26, leaned towards the Baroque trend for embellishment that we're seeing everywhere but the beading, diaphanous black sheath and purple gown were too much on her fuller figure.
And the Big Bang Theory's Kaley Cuoco, 27, was on the right track in her red Romona Keveza gown but the prom gown just wasn't the right length for her and her stylist needed words for the helmet haircut that accompanied the look.
She was joined on the bottom half of the list by her co-star and ex-boyfriend Johnny Galecki's new gal, Kelli Garner, 28, who looked unkempt in a patterned peplum dress.
What was she thinking? Amber Riley misfired in this sheer black and purple number
