Critics Choice Awards 2023: GASLIT Star Julia Roberts in Schiaparelli

Posted on January 17, 2023

And now, Miss Julia Roberts, looking surprisingly classic and traditional in a very restrained Schiaparelli gown. We’re not sure if we’re more surprised that she wore something so conventional, or that Schiaparelli offered something so conventional.


Not that she’s some sort of punk style rebel or anything; just that she sort of pulled back on all the fashion foofaraw that comes with movie star self-promotion some time ago and opts for really bold, sometimes slightly goofy statement looks more than she opts for traditional, stately glamour like this. She’s worn more than her share of gowns, of course, but she clearly prefers pants and suits. This gown could be perfectly appropriate, if not downright expected for someone at least a generation older than her. Jane Fonda would look amazing in it. But this observation is not a criticism in this instance. She really does look fantastic here. We can see how the fuss-free design would appeal to her, given her preferences. We’re just a little taken with how restrained and traditionally elegant it is. The design is an homage to Elsa Schiaparelli’s Apollo of Versailles cape from 1938, which is currently in the Met.
