The Grown-ish leading lady arrived looking straight out of a runway in a bespoke Ralph Lauren Collection strapless silk cady tuxedo jumpsuit with a giant silk faille bow and side stripe.

ET chatted with Shahidi on the SAG red carpet on Jan. 21, where she dished on her overall look.

"It was originally supposed to be a dress, but I like to move, and they were so nice to make some pants for me, so I'd get my tuxedo dreams," she said. "And I have this huge bow because why not be a little extra."
