Despite the many gorgeous celebrities flocking last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet, Kyra Sedgwick stood out thanks to a bold new accessory.
Clad in a fire engine red Emilio Pucci column, The Closer star (and best drama actress nominee) explained the significance of the linear design resting just north of her exposed ribcage.
"It's a family tattoo," she told E! "It's all our initials K, K, S and T."
The actress was, of course, referring to husband of 23-years, Kevin Bacon, their son Travis, 22 and daughter Sosie, 19.

Another year, another Emmy snub for Courteney Cox.
Buzz had been building that the Cougar Town actress, 47, might earn her first Emmy nomination this year. But she was left off the list of nominees Thursday – one of several notable omissions.
Other actors who didn't feel the love from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences this year: Kyra Sedgwick of The Closer, the Emmy winner in 2010; Sean Bean of Game of Thrones; Joel McHale of Community; and Lea Michele of Glee.

Like many other women who have struggled with weight and food issues, Kyra Sedwick admits that she too had a body image problem when she first started out in the business.
Playing a Holocaust survivor in the 1985 film War and Love, where the slender-framed actress dropped 20 lbs., started what she says was a year-long battle.
"Food has never been easy for me. I came back from that [role], and it triggered something," The Closer star, 44, tells More in its July/August issue. "I ate everything in sight. My weight went up and then too far down."

Romance seemed to be in the air Saturday at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Los Angeles as stars and their spouses showed their sweet affection for each other.
Kevin Bacon was a bundle of nerves before his name was announced as best male actor in a TV movie or miniseries for his role in HBO's Taking Chance, but wife Kyra Sedgwick kept him looking his best. How? "I had to blot his face a little," she admitted to PEOPLE at the afterparty.
Mad Men star Christina Hendricks's new husband, Geoffrey Arend, was clearly his wife's biggest fan. "I feel like the luckiest man ever. She's such a cutie pie," he raved. "When Michael C. Hall said 'I want to thank my wife for wearing that dress,' I feel that way every single awards show." Hendricks agreed, telling PEOPLE, "He's been feeling me all night."

Kyra Sedgwick may feel less overwhelmed by her Los Angeles-based acting work these days, but that doesn't make her any less homesick for husband Kevin Bacon and the rest of her family in New York.
"I remember the first few years it was like I was in an ocean and constantly getting tumbled over. I thought I was going to drown," Sedgwick, 43, tells September's Ladies' Home Journal about her work since 2005 on the TNT drama The Closer, for which she is again nominated for an outstanding actress in a drama series Emmy.
"It's not like that anymore ... but the homesickness – missing the kids, missing those life moments – that gets harder and harder." Welling up, she adds: "I'm just a teary mess about that part of it."

Kyra Sedgwick wishes to set the record straight about her family's finances after she and husband Kevin Bacon were caught up in the scandal created by notorious Ponzi scheme-operator Bernard Madoff.
Sedgwick, 43, star of TV's The Closer, says she and Bacon were damaged – but not "destroyed" – after losing money they had invested with Madoff, who pleaded guilty earlier this year to defrauding clients of billions of dollars. He is due to be sentenced June 16.
"We lost hard-earned money that we worked very hard for that we thought [was] in a safe place," says the actress, the Associated Press reports. "It's painful but a lot of people lost a lot more."

Although Kyra Sedgwick puts in many hours on the set of The Closer, she, husband Kevin Bacon and daughter Sosie Bacon, 17, enjoy quality time together as often as possible. "I get to be home and spend the weekend with my daughter and husband – I need them!" Sedgwick told PEOPLE at a New York City event announcing Tropicana's Trop50 partnership with BlogHer, an online community for women.
But unlike most families, chatting about the movies can get very personal among the three. One recent topic of discussion? The casting of Kevin's signature role of Ren McCormack in the remake of 1984's Footloose. "It's that Chace Crawford guy, right?" says Sedgwick. "We're thrilled! Sosie is a big fan. We met him at the White House Correspondent's Dinner. Kevin and he had a chat. He's very sweet."
Ever loyal to her husband, Sedgwick adds, "He has big shoes to fill!"
