The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards threw us a curve ball last Tuesday with announcement of this years Best Actress Award. Viola Davis, The Help won out over heavy wright contenders including Meryl Streep, Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Tilda Swinton, and Elizabeth Olsen.
The 17th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, held at the Hollywood Palladium, saw some fantastic “best dressed” celebrity style with appearances from:
- Elle Fanning: in a gorgeous sunflower-covered Rodarte dress.
- Kirsten Dunst: rocking a Dior cocktail dress (adorned with silky black ribbons and bows).
- Michelle Williams: sporting an unique (but beautiful) black-and-white wrap-like Chanel gown.
- Charlize Theron: out of Dior and into a sculptural Azzedine Alaia gown.
- Emma Stone: great pairing! She knows how to make the most out of being a redhead, and looked divine in her emerald green Jason Wu gown.
- Paul Rudd: fashion is no laughing matter in a beautiful Lanvin tuxedo
- Tilda Swinton: black-and-white Yves Saint Laurent tuxedo, need we say more.
Unfortunate style hick-ups:
- Elizabeth Olsen: in a Emilio Pucci dress that made her look like she was off to tea and her knitting circle.
- Diane Kruger: striped chiffon Prada gown…did she look at her bust before leaving the house? It looks like a pair of crazy eyes.
- Berenice Bejo: not fashionable yet. Poor choice of a unremarkable Elie Saab cocktail dress, possible marked down to 70% off at the Rack.
- Chloe Moretz: Yes she is 14, but can a gurdian or parretal figure please help this child avoid looking 40 years old in her very serious Chanel dress/ Way too dark and the shoulders pull the silhouette down. This is a dress for a tall women in mid 20’s upward.
