Jenna Ortega can easily be given the title of Gen Z’s scream queen due to her impressive performances in productions like X, Scream, and Wednesday.

Jenna Ortega Channeled Her ‘Wednesday’ Character for the SAG AwardsJenna Ortega Wore Vintage Versace

Jenna Ortega was present at the Screen Actors Guild Awards due to her being nominated for her role on Wednesday. This time, Jenna showcased her dark and mysterious style in a fashionable manner with an amazing outfit consisting entirely of black and reminiscent of Wednesday Addams’ style. The actress had a truly vintage feel to her as if she was coming from a ’90s runway.

Ortega wore a deep-V leather gown with a high front slit and an asymmetrical neckline. The dress was an archival Versace from the Italian label’s fall 1994 collection. It was designed by the late Gianni Versace, and while the original dress featured a single shoulder strap, Ortega’s version was updated to be strapless. So far, the actress has been consistent in donning black outfits at red-carpet events, and it is even becoming her signature style. This is very likely to have been inspired by the character Wednesday Addams.

The other nominees included Allison Janney for Mom, Aidy Bryant for Shrill, Kaley Cuoco for The Flight Attendant, and Jean Smart for Hacks. Ultimately, the award went to Jean Smart.
