The gown Bryce Dallas Howard wore to the SAG Awards Sunday night deviated from the usual Hollywood tradition involving borrowing an obscenely expensive designer dress: The actor bought her sequined, ruby red gown for only $308.

Howard purchased the dress from Nordstrom last year, she told Vanity Fair, and decided the Screen Actors Guild Awards was the right time and place to wear it.

Howard is in the habit of wearing affordable but still stylish dresses to awards events and sometimes likes to shop online because of its convenience.

“It goes back to this thing of how you get ready for the prom,” Howard told Vanity Fair. “You go shopping with your girlfriends, and you try everything together.”

Not all of her dresses are so affordable — her 2016 Golden Globes dress by Jenny Packham cost $4,800, according to VF — but she bought it herself, rather than let her stylist pick it out or borrow it from a designer. Still, most of her gowns have had more reasonable price tags while not sacrificing any of their style.

Dress the Population, designer of Howard’s SAG Awards gown, is a company many think is worth supporting in addition to being affordable. The dress maker chooses one dress each month and donates 50 percent of online sales to a charity selected by its employees and customers. The dress Howard wore was not one selected for donations, according to Refinery 29, but the concept is still admirable.

Howard was at the awards after being nominated for her starring role in an episode of the Netflix show “Black Mirror” and also starred in the movie “Jurassic World.” Howard also will star in Jurassic World 2, which is due to begin shooting soon, minus the gown, we're guessing.
