Aubrey Plaza had reason to celebrate on Sunday when White Lotus won the Best Ensemble in a Drama Series prize at the SAG Awards 2023 – and all eyes were on her amazing dress.

The Black Bear star looked incredible in a risqué sequin number by Michael Kors, featuring microscopic halterneck strap detailing at the bust. The barely-there number was a bold departure for Aubrey, and the star appeared worried about suffering a wardrobe malfunction when she joined her co-stars including Meghann Fahy and Theo James onstage to collect the award. Check out the viral video that has everyone talking below – what do you think happened?

Aubrey's dress boasted a daring slit running up the front of the skirt and a large cut-out on the stomach to highlight her toned figure.

Michael Kords' copper cady gown was a work of art in itself and was hand-embroidered with over 76,000 sequins. She paired the look with coordinating bronze heels and styled her brunette bob in glamorous Hollywood waves. Perfection!

"I have worked with Michael [Kors] for many years, and he came up with something perfect for us. Anytime I explain to Michael what I want in a look he gets it exactly right, every time."

Aubrey looked to be having a blast at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which saw her present an award alongside Wednesday breakout star Jenna Ortega and reunite with her Parks and Recreation co-star Amy Poehler on the red carpet.
