On Sunday in Los Angeles were the Critics Choice Awards. The red, or in this case, blue carpet was filled with fashion, and the event was pretty fun to watch as well. Here are a few of my favorites.
Leslie Mann in Greta Constantine. I adore this bright citrusy color. The ruffled, or lettuce style sleeve, is going to be a major upcoming trend. I really like it, what do you think?
Viola Davis in Michael Kors. I thought she looked stunning and she was also the recipient of the first See Her Award that I thought was a very cool part of the ceremony.
These chic black gowns worn by Rachel Bloom(L) and Constance Zimmer(R) were also stylish. I love the details, especially the mix of fabrics of Rachel Blooms dress.
Emma Stone wore Roland Mouret and looked beautiful. Her style is exceptional and I’m also super excited to see La La Land, she’s a great actress.
Amy Adams in Versace
Constance Wu in Johanna Ortiz
Instead of being a baring-all slit, the skirt opens in the front to show off Nia Long’ shoes, but its still closed off by the back. Accompanied by the graphic bodice, this dress is super pretty.
These were a few of my favorite suits. The subtle details, colors and excellent fit are what separated them.
Anthony Anderson & Childish Gambino
James Marsden in Salvatore Ferragamo and Jim Parsons.
Rami Malek in Burberry and RuPaul Charles.
The stars of Stranger Things looked absolutely adorable in their suits!
Nicole Kidman’s Brandon Maxwell was structured and sleek, but slightly overdone. I feel like the top of the dress looks like a batman mask. It would have been much more chic with a scoop or slight v neck.
Kaley Cuoco in a Noon by Noor two piece set. Its innovative for sure, but I’m honestly a little perplexed by this outfit. Does the top need straps? The train is a fun detail, but with pants doesn’t it feel like a bit much? But had it been cut at the back of the knee would it be enough? I’m not sure..
I’m also not in love with this extreme whitewashed gothic look from Lily Collins. The dress itself has pretty details, but overall resembles that of a vampire bride.
Katheryn Winnick’s dress has a lot of elements that create a ton of noise. If this is strapless, why are there sheer sleeves? Why are their multiple sheer patterns? Why bother with a cutout? Is the slit necessary? Visually and constructively its overdone.
I wanted to like Kate Beckinsale’s gown by Reem Acra, but its severely lacking. I also hate that its super sheer. I would have had glitter all over the bodice, not open so her cleavage is showing; and I’d probably ditch the puffy sleeves. It was a nice effort, but fell short.
I usually love Natalie Portman’s style, but this number had me confused. The numerous prints and ruffles are definitely overwhelming. The sleeves might have been charming with a floor length black skirt.
And the fashion nightmare of the evening was Bella Thorne in Steven Kahili. Its flimsy, trashy and daunting. I’m not sure what phase she’s going through, but her style has gotten very extreme and not in a good way.
