Ali Wong’s SAG Awards gown might have been hard to navigate, but it was all worth it.

“It’s Iris Van Herpen, laser-cut and usually I have to alter so much because I’m 5 feet tall, but the top fit like a glove,” Wong, 41, told E! Live From the Red Carpet correspondent Laverne Cox on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet on Saturday, February 24. “Then, I think we just had to alter the bottom and my shoes. I’m no Laverne Cox, so I have to add, like, 10 inches. I think these are Brandon Blackwood and Bucherer jewelry.”

Wong wore an off-the-shoulder black-and-white gown with laser-cut diamonds hanging off the sleeves. The look also featured a sheer overlay with coordinating white diamond shapes. Wong finished her ensemble with diamond drop earrings and a sleek high pony.

Wong’s dress took up a considerable amount of space, which prompted Cox’s concern about SAG Award seating arrangements.

They were, like, hiding under [my skirt] and they just really like it when I’m around a lot more.”

While Wong was thrilled to be recognized on Saturday for her Beef performance, her kids — whom she shares with estranged husband Justin Hakuta — would rather see her doing stand-up comedy instead of filming a TV or movie.

“[They] just told me they really prefer when I do stand-up because when we go on the road, we’re together,” Wong noted on the red carpet. “Right now I’m tour, but I’m open to [acting more]. I feel very lucky to be able to do what occurs to me or what speaks to me.”
