Awards season is definitely upon us! After the blackout at the Golden Globes it was nice to see color galore at the Critics Choice Awards 2018. Below are my favorite looks from the event.
Wonder Woman shined in this gorgeous silver Prada gown! It's elegant and powerful, perfect for our heroine to accept the award for Best Action Film!
For some reason Angelina Jolie in Ralph and Russo has shown up on both worst and best dressed lists. Perhaps this is a love it or hate it dress. In that case, I love it! I love designing with feathers and the asymetrical hem gives a flirty, modern feel.
Some worst dressed lists out there have called out celebrities for being too casual for a black-tie affair. Sorry, but the Critics Choice isn't the black-tie affair the Globes or Academy Awards are. Laura Dern's Balmain ensemble perfectly straddles the line of formal and casual chic. The peak of her lace bra takes a deep v-neck from vampy to flirty.
This dress by Oscar de la Renta and Tyler Ellis didn't grab me at first, not until I saw a better photograph of it. After digesting it a little I really love it! It's really fun and flirty with the sheerness of it, and sophisticated at the same time. The Critics Choice Awards is a fun and more light-hearted event than the Globes and this dress captured that perfectly.
I love the ethereal quality of this dress, but with the punch of pink. The uneven hem and color lends to a youthful and adorable dress up vibe, but the fitted bodice and perfect styling make it mature and refined.
Sarah Hyland's look here makes me think of Carrie Bradshaw in the opening credits of Sex and the City. The Naeem Khan look is simple, but fun.
I've never considered Laurie Metcalf a style icon, but here she is looking ultra glamorous. I love this look from head to toe. She nailed her look for the Golden Globes and she did it again here. I also love that she's wearing designers on the rise. Shout out to her stylist, whoever you are! I can't wait to see what she wears next!
My favorite look of the night goes to Jaimie Alexander in this Georges Chakra dress. The train of the dress makes it elegant while the shorter hem in front shows off Jaimie's great legs. The deep v neckline and nude underlay of the dress gives the illusion of showing a lot of skin, but that gorgeous train balances it out.
