Move over, Ultra Violet. The Pantone Color of the Year should've been a blush pink. 

While the leading ladies of This Is Us opted for a vibrant cobalt blue for the 2018 SAG Awards, there were several stars who were draped in a hue on the neutral spectrum. It was a surprising trend, considering flesh tones can wash you out if not done perfectly. However, Hollywood's fashion elite not only served as inspiration but as a style guide to do the trend right. 

For instance, if you have fairer skin, like Saoirse Ronan, you may want to try a slightly more saturated pink. If your skin tone is darker, like The Leftovers actress Amanda Warren, you may want to take a twirl in peachy hues. If you think blush may be too subtle, take a page from Connie Britton's book, and opt for the hue in a more statement-making texture, like sequins. 

Standout Style Moments at SAG Awards 2018

At the very least, these dress colors make really pretty makeup blush hues. So if you don't have anywhere to wear a couture gown to, you can still try wearing the trend in a relatable way. 

Dakota Fanning

Not only did The Alienist star wear a beautiful blush-pink custom Prada gown, but her fingernails matched! Celebrity manicurist Lisa Pena Wong created the look with a color called Grace ($10) by Zoya

Millie Bobby Brown

The Stranger Things star was adorable and age-appropriate in a sequined, light-pink Calvin Klein halter dress with two hair buns. The Converse were a youthful touch for the actress, who loves to dance. 

Madeline Brewer

The Orange Is the New Black star looked like a beautiful, '50s-inspired cake-topper in a nude Reem Acra dress with beading and pearls. 

Tanika Ray

The television personality's hot-pink pout was a nice contrast to her sheer, nude dress. 

Laura Linney

The Ozark actress opted for a pale-pink cape dress with metallic leafing. 

Saoirse Ronan

Wouldn't the Ladybird actress' Louis Vuitton dress make a beautiful makeup blush hue? It has an innocent but fresh vibe. 

Connie Britton

What country star doesn't love pink sequins? Connie's choice is a little muted in tone but definitely still a standout look. 

Amanda Warren

More peachy than pink, The Leftovers actress' one-shoulder dress perfectly complemented her skin tone. 

Marisa Tomei

Featuring a slight nude tinge, Marisa's dress may have looked a little too much if either white or a richer shade of pink. The hue is understated but sophisticated.
