OMG! You totally won't recognize Barb from Stranger Things IRL and on the 2017 SAG Awards red carpet. Her portrayer Shannon Purser traded her character's glasses and '80s garb for a gorgeous, off-the-shoulder gown with a full, tulle skirt. Purser wore a custom Christian Siriano black dress to the 2017 SAGs and it was an utterly swoon-worthy and fierce fashion moment. She was a maj glam diva from top to bottom.
No wonder the designer proudly tweeted about Purser donning his design — she looked as uh-mazing as she did unrecognizable. Wait until you see her total glamazon presentation, including Hollywood screen siren-red lips, extra dramatic winged eyeliner, and waves for days with her ginger locks. Her look was, in a word, breathtaking.
While Barb has been a polarizing character who became wildly popular among diehard Stranger Things fans, there was nothing divisive about her SAG ensemble. You will want to post "#ImWithBarb," since Purser slayed all day (and night). She also reminded us that black is anything but basic, thanks to the details and the confidence with which she wore the color.
Before we blow you away with Purser's 2017 SAGs look, peep her in character as Barb. It'll be a fun compare and contrast exercise.
There is Purser as Barb.
And here is Purser on the SAGs red carpet. GORGEOUS!
Her dress was like a full, floating dream and the dark color highlighted her porcelain skin.
Are you totally mopping up the drool? You should be!
