Critics Choice Awards 2023 Red Carpet Rundown – Part One

Posted on January 17, 2023

Alright, stars and kittens. We’ve all put the time in, wearing expensive outfits and critiquing your wearing of said outfits, but it’s time to wrap up our coverage of the 2023 Critics Choice Awards. Line ’em up!


Bella Ramsey in Tory Burch

She hasn’t spent too much time on the red carpet, but she’s already established a very quirky, very modern, high-impact, slightly nonbinary sort of style for herself. Love the jacket and the boots.


Bob Odenkirk in Giorgio Armani

He looks great, except for the part where it looks like his pants are about to fall off him.


Claire Foy in Prada

Prada’s been doing some interesting things with print lately. We’re intrigued by the concept of the dress, but it’s a little dreary, isn’t it?


Danny Ramirez in Saint Laurent

Looking great. LOVE the wide-legged pants on him.


Elle Fanning in Alexander McQueen

We suppose she’ll stop doing the deconstructed Disney Princess thing when she’s good and ready. We feel like we’ve seen this from her in many other forms, but it’s still a pretty cool design. We’d have put her in a tiara instead of those earrings.


Glen Powell in Brunello Cucinelli

Fine. In every sense of the word.


Janelle James in Vintage John Galliano

Gorgeous neckline, beautiful color. She’s really stepped up her game.


Kate Hudson in Oscar de la Renta

It’s a gorgeous dress that should be on Danai Gurira. She looks washed out in it and you can’t see the details all that well.


Kerry Condon in Donna Karan Collection

Lots of rich browns on the red carpet lately. Along with the surprisingly good neutrals we’ve been spotting, we’re surprised by how often it works. She looks great. Ladies keep trying to pair these massive necklaces with asymmetrical necklines this season and we don’t think it ever works.


Melanie Lynskey in Giambattista Valli

That color looks great on her and we suppose wearing yellow as the star of Yellowjackets makes good branding sense. We think she tends to prefer the sort of floaty, lacey, ruffley details here, but we’re not crazy about them. Love the jewelry.


Milly Alcock in Dior Couture

Hmm. We like a good ombre effect – and this one is really well done – but it just looks dirty.


Murray Bartlett in Canali

We think the jacket might be a little snug, but aside from that, our other husband is perfect.


Niecy Nash-Betts in Jason Wu



Quinta Brunson in Robert Wun

Ooh, honey. We don’t think so. She’s had a lot of style hits lately, but this one is definitely a miss.


Stephanie Hsu in Valentino

A classic gown in a beautiful color, perfectly styled. The fit is fantastic except it’s cutting into her up top.


Thuso Mbedu in Louis Vuitton

The skirt is fun, but the bodice looks like a dance recital costume. Her makeup is stunning.

More to come in Part TWO!
