Critics’ Choice Awards 2020 Red Carpet Report: Taste the Rainbow

Posted on January 13, 2020

Each year, this little red carpet tradition seems to codify itself a little more: the Golden Globes red carpet is a time for formal B&W looks, while the Critics Choice Awards red carpet is the place where you burn out the retinas of the world with your color choices. Zendaya and Billy each served up two of the hottest colors of the night – bold pink and mint green – but oranges and yellows made a fairly strong showing as well. These folks are definitely not feeling the midwinter doldrums.



Alison Brie in Brandon Maxwell

This is terribly backhanded, but we don’t think we’ve ever seen her in anything so tasteful. She looks fantastic. Maybe boldly colored minimalism is something you should look into more, Miss Alison.



Andrew Scott in Berluti

Kudos to him for really leaning into his status as a romantic figure by dressing as a Valentine’s Day card, but those colors in combination are a hell of a lot to take.




Awkwafina in Elie Saab

Gorgeous. We are not having a problem with this micro-trend of classic, relatively simple shapes rendered in eye-catching colors. She’s working that yellow beautifully and the gown has real drama to it without being fussy or overwhelming.



Beanie Feldstein in Lela Rose

Another walking Valentine. It’s cute enough, but that satin was clearly unworkable. The wrinkles and seaming are overwhelming.




Kristen Bell in Cong Tri

Oooh, girl. That is SO VERY NOT your color.



Laura Dern in Emilia Wickstead

We’d also argue that this rather popular shade of orange isn’t doing much for Miss Laura either.



Lucy Hale in Miu Miu

Maybe that belt detail is a bit much, but this feels fun and a little fresh. And it couldn’t suit her more perfectly.



Niecy Nash in Tadashi Shoji

She did it again. That’s a gorgeous textile.



Jaeden Martell in Amiri

Love this, but the cut of the jacket looks a little off; almost like a ladycut.



Olivia Wilde in Valentino

We don’t understand wearing a dress with that much volume and that much silhouette and then styling it with sandals and a tight top knot. You gotta answer volume with volume. Get some big hair and killer pump action in here.



Rachel Brosnahan in Carolina Herrera

It appears that only Alison Brie can effectively work this color. This looks like a ballgown skirt pinned to a bathing suit.
