Once again we thank the fashion and celebrity deities for the abundance of the blessings they have bestowed upon us, and with full appreciation of the efforts of all those lovely stylists and stars, it’s time to put this year’s Critics Choice Awards to be bed, good and judged. So put your judgin’ pants on and help us get down to it.
Angela Bassett in Alberta Ferretti
Simple but flawless. Can’t argue with a thing.
Anne Hathaway in Givenchy
Annie went a little hard and a little high-fashion for the night and we kind of love it. It feels very “Devil Wears Prada” sequel.
Ashley Park in Atelier Versace
It’s unfortunately a little reminiscent of Cynthia Erivo’s memorable Golden Globes look, but she still looks amazing in it.
Catherine O’Hara in Elie Saab
We love when she gets a little Delia Deetz on us.
Dominique Fishback in Reem Acra
That’s just perfectly pretty and romantic; like an ingenue in a ’50s romance melodrama. Her hair style is dead-perfect for it.
Gillian Anderson in Dior
Sharp and practical, which strikes us as her fave kind of style.
H.E.R. in Miu Miu
This could come off a bit too mature in style (it’s got more than a hint of the Golden Girls to it), but her styling really takes it somewhere. Love the hair, shades and sandals.
Jo Ellen Pellman in Marchesa
Interesting to see Marchesa back on the “red carpet.” Also interesting that the design is a major departure from the brand’s signature poofy romanticism. We love this, although we can’t tell if the that’s a jeweled collar or actual jewelry.
Jurnee Smollett in Louis Vuitton
Oooh, no. That’s got to be the most disappointing silver sequined suit we’ve ever seen. The design and fit of that jacket just makes it look way too small on her.
Kelly Clarkson in Bronx and Banco
Hmmm. We think the general style is right for her, but there’s something about the combination of plunging neckline, waist medallion(?), high center slit, and t-strap shoe. It’s too much.
Maria Bakalova in Prada
Absolutely stunning. This would have been too impractical for real-world wear most likely.
Rachel Brosnahan in Rodarte
Sorry, Rach. You really are incredibly well-suited to the mid-century styles. This looks fantastic.
Uzo Aduba in Christian Siriano
We think it would look so much better with either the breastplate-y bust treatment or the high waist edited out. Other than that, the fit is impeccable and the color looks amazing on her.
Vanessa Kirby in Saint Laurent
She tends to keep her style choices rather simple and classic; borderline generic, even. It’s a smart way to go because she really has a model’s knack for making them look dramatic.
Wunmi Mosaku in Aliette
Love the drama, color and shape, but we the textile photographs terribly.
