By
The 2017 Screen Actors Guild Awards on Sunday night featured lots of show-stopping styles on the red carpet, and one fashion trend nobody saw coming.
Several stars showed up wearing gowns that featured birds on them. In the words of Portlandia, they "put a bird on it!"
Beloved actress Meryl Streep, 67, led the trend with a white Valentino dress that had small birds flying all over it.
Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez, 32, also had some vertebrates adorning her sequin PatBo dress.

But these actresses weren't the only ones to rock the birds look. Westworld's Thandie Newton, 44, stepped out in a Schiaparelli gown that appeared to have a circus-theme, complete with a Ferris wheel and, of course, black birds.
As for Nicole Kidman, she wore a Gucci emerald sequin gown that included feathers and parrots on the shoulders. The 49-year-old actress' eye-popping getup elicited lots of Twitter reactions.

"So happy that Nicole Kidman found someone to cover her shift at the Emerald City Gates so she could attend the #sagawards tonight," one Twitter user quipped.
"Nicole Kidman looks like a damn Mardi Gras float in that dress. Less is more people," read another tweet.
Still, others were fans of the green gown. "Nicole Kidman in emerald green Gucci screams movie star #SAGAwards," one Twitter user wrote.
