RED CARPET SHOWDOWN OF THE WEEK: Zendaya vs Cynthia Erivo

Posted on January 17, 2020

Why? Because we were feeling all kinds of mischievous this morning, darlings! We know both of these looks had major detractors when we featured them earlier this week, just as we know they each had their fierce defenders. Controversy! We’re courting the F out of it!

 

 

 

L’s Pick: Zendaya in Tom Ford at the Critics’ Choice Awards

Lo’s Defense: It’s likely to go down as one of the most memorable red carpet looks of 2020 and we’re only halfway through January. The styling is what elevates everything here. It’s all in service to highlighting and showcasing the focus of the look. And given how goofy Gwynnie looked trying it, Zendaya deserves a lot of credit for making that breastplate look both fierce and effortless. An unforgettable red carpet moment.

 

 

T’s Pick: Cynthia Erivo in Fendi Couture at the Critics’ Choice Awards

T’s Defense:  It’s such a uniquely memorable design on its own, but it looks somehow so much more … appropriate on her. Like Helen Mirren, she’s got a regal affect and a regal style to go with it. The way this gown plays with historical elements of both fashion design and architecture in one garment is brilliant, but probably extremely difficult to pull off without looking overwhelmed. Not if you’re Cynthia Erivo, evidently.

 

There you have it, kittens! You’ve got your work cut out for you! Make your vote and then get in there and start FIGHTING WITH STRANGERS about it! It’s the way of the internet!
