While typically known for her picture-perfect red carpet gowns, it was Emma Stone's pants at the 2019 SAG Awards that made heads turn this year. Yes, the actress and nominee strolled into the event in black pleated wide-legged trousers that gave all the dresses of the evening a run for their money.

Stone was nominated twice tonight — to the surprise of no one. Her acclaimed performance in The Favourite has been buzzed about since the film's release and rightly earned her a nod for "Outstanding Female Actor in a Supporting Role" (her second nomination is "Outstanding Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie" for Maniac).

It was to be expected that Stone would show up in her Sunday best, as she never disappoints in serving up all the Hollywood glam in a fun and approachable way. Well, the star took "approachable" to all new levels with her pant-centric ensemble by Louis Vuitton, which she topped off with a one-sleeved chiffon blouse, side-parted messy chignon, and cherry lips. Despite the casual essence of trousers, Stone's look still read incredibly glamorous and elevated, not to mention easy to emulate in real life.

The menswear trend that defined 2018 has officially carried over into the new year, and Stone's look proves just how easy it is to dress up. Sure, trousers are considered casual by nature, but elevated blouses and statement shoes can easily take them from day to night. Take a look at how Stone wore the trendy bottoms and feel free to recreate the look yourself for your next formal event — just take a page from Stone's whimsical book.

Although her award show style is surely defined by dresses, it's worth nothing that this isn't the first time Stone has opted for pants on the red carpet. She famously went the same route for the 2015 Golden Globes — the actor's Lanvin pantsuit was just as memorable as Sun. evening's SAG Awards look. Considering the season has only just begun, Stone's SAG Awards ensemble may be a sign that she'll be gravitating towards untraditional silhouettes in the coming weeks.

This year's awards season is in full swing, and Stone isn't the only celebrity to take an untraditional approach to red-carpet dressing. Julia Roberts showed up to the 2019 Golden Globes in a super-unique Stella McCartney look, a chiffon gown over tailored black trousers. The same evening, Jameela Jamil — although sneakily — layered her favorite comfy jeans under her Monique Lhuillier gown to keep warm.

Stone has had a busy week: Days prior to the SAG Awards, the actor debuted one of her boldest hair transformations to date. The Favourite actor showed up to the 30th Annual Producers Guild Awards on Jan. 19 with a fresh auburn hair color. Although the dark hue appears to have faded slightly since last Sat., the new look is nonetheless exciting. Whether Stone will keep the dark shade throughout award season remains, but one thing's for sure: Her SAG Awards look was perfection.
