Critics’ Choice Awards 2018 Red Carpet Rundown

Posted on January 13, 2018

Kittens, it’s Saturday and we’re working, which can only mean one thing: The previous week left our cups so overflowing with content and unexpressed opinions that we simply had to rouse ourselves from our divans, wrap our caftans firmly around ourselves, put down our wine glasses, turn to the imaginary cameras that follow us everywhere and offer our thoughts on a large selection of the attendees of Thursday night’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Who the hell schedules an awards show for Thursday? Good-for-nothing, weekend-ruining bitches, that’s who.

Onward!

 

Alexis Bledel in Rasario

It’s simple but borderline pretty. It doesn’t quite get there because the color-blocked bust is odd and the sash is sad. Sweet footwear, though.

 

 

Alison Brie in Roberto Cavalli

Why Miss Allison. Look at you, getting all fashion-y and stuff. We’re not feeling the shoes with it, but we like the dress design. It just needs to be in a color that doesn’t make her look like a mummy.

 

 

Allison Janney in Michael Cinco

WERQ, QUEEN

She absolutely knows she looks bangin’.

 

 

Allison Williams in Dolce&Gabbana

Yuck. Girl, you didn’t design this hideosity. That blame can be laid squarely at the no-doubt well-shod feet of Stefano and Dominico. You did, however, pick this to wear in public and we feel comfortable judging you for that.

 

 

Carrie Coon in Reem Acra

We keep trying to like this but the fact remains that the graphic elements are distracting, oddly placed, and distort the lines of her body. Everything above the neck is gorgeous, though.

 

 

Emilia Clarke in Dolce&Gabbana

Can’t really argue with any of this.

 

 

Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani

Adorbs.

 

 

Emma Roberts (in Giorgio Armani) and Evan Peters

Wedding cake toppers.

 

 

Gal Gadot in Prada

WERQ, AMAZON PRINCESS.

LOVING this. Her red carpet style is better now than when she was promoting Wonder Woman or Justice League. She’s on a mission to snag this film some Oscar noms.

 

 

Heidi Klum in Georges Hobeika Couture

It’s very Heidi.

You may take that sentence however you wish.

 

 

Holly Hunter

It’s very Holly. And in this case, we mean it entirely as a compliment. Her signature look for decades now has been sleek, body-hugging, sleeveless looks. Maybe she could’ve used some statement jewelry to dress this up more, but we can’t deny she looks great.

 

 

Jessica Biel in Oscar de la Renta

We rarely pay her anything but backhanded compliments, but in this case, we see no need. She looks gorgeous. It’s an interesting dress and the head-styling is flawless.

 

 

Laura Dern in Balmain

LOVE this one her. It’s so well-suited to her. She really needs to make jumpsuits a bit more of a wardrobe staple. Not many are built perfectly for them, but she’s one.

 

 

Mary J. Blige in Vivienne Westwood Couture

Pure, mainline DIVA.

 

 

Niecy Nash in Badgley Mischka

Exceedingly rare to see tropical-inspired prints on the RC – especially at this time of year. This looks great, though. It stands out for being different and for displaying her signature need for stunning, head-turning fit.

 

 

 

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

Her man came through again.

 

 

Olivia Munn in Prada

It’s pretty enough, but her bust looks a bit too much like a chandelier.

 

 

Reese Witherspoon in Prada

Cute dress, but Miss Reese, you and we all know why you body-con looks are your go-to. This isn’t awful, but the silhouette is simply not great on her.

 

 

Rita Moreno

WERQ that jacket, Rita.

 

Samira Wiley in Rebecca Vallance

Not a thing out of place, as far as we can see.

 

 

 

Sarah Hyland in Naeem Khan

It’s as literal as this style gets and more than a bit of a cliche, but we see no reason why any gal shouldn’t get her Swan Lake on now and then if she feels like it. She looks lovely.

 

 

Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen (in Cédric Charlier)

What a gorgeous couple.
