Jenna Ortega made a striking arrival on Sunday on the red carpet at the 2023 SAG Awards in Los Angeles, channeling her Wednesday Addams character in a plunging black vintage Versace gown.
The dress was made of textured black leather and is from the brand’s fall 1994 collection. Her asymmetrical, strapless dress featured a thigh-high slit. She styled it with a simple black belt with a gold buckle around her waist.
For jewelry, Ortega opted for silver bangles, rings and a goth-inspired ball chain necklace. She also added on some open-toed platform pumps.
Ortega wore her shoulder-length hair in shaggy layers, complete with messy fringe.
Ortega is nominated for her titular role in Netflix’s “Wednesday.” She’s in the running for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series. Ortega’s fellow nominees include Christina Applegate (“Dead to Me”), Quinta Brunson (“Abbott Elementary”), Jean Smart (“Hacks”) and Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”).
“Wednesday” became an immediate hit for the streaming service, which renewed the series for a second season in January. The Addams Family spinoff is currently the second most-watched show on Netflix, just behind “Stranger Things.”
Ortega has captured attention with her rendition of the iconic daughter of the Addams Family. This marks the 20-year-old’s first SAG Award nomination.
The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards honor the top film and television acting performances of the past year. The 2023 ceremony was held at the Fairmount Century Plaza in Los Angeles and will see Andrew Garfield present the SAG Life Achievement Award to Sally Field. The evening’s nominees include Zendaya, Cate Blanchett, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Jenna Ortega, Austin Butler, Brendan Fraser, Jennifer Coolidge, Barry Keoghan and Ke Huy Quan.
