#MetroStyleWatch: The Best Dressed Ladies At The Critics Choice Awards
Wasn't it just a week ago that the Golden Globes happened? We truly are in the middle of awards season, with red carpets filled to the brim with fashion statements week after week. For this year's Critics Choice Awards, the stars chose to go the neutral route, favoring muted tones over jewel-hued frocks.
We saw a lot of black and whites, touches of glitter and sparkle, and some hints of color and print here and there, but all in all—it was a pretty aesthetically pleasing red carpet to look at. Congratulations are in order for Lady Gaga for bagging the Best Actress award alongside veteran actress Glenn Close, but we'd have to say she also won major style points for going the minimalist route in a Calvin Klein number. Scroll further for the other winning looks in our book:
Lady Gaga in Calvin Klein by Appointment
If Lady Gaga opted for a periwinkle statement for the Golden Globes, she totally caught us off guard with a major minimalist moment for the red carpet in a clean Calvin Klein column dress with train. Truly one to keep us on the edge of our seats, she ditched the over-the-top fashion and brought simplicity at its finest.
Nicole Kidman in Armani
The statuesque Nicole Kidman brings life to a classic black and white combination with an unexpected modern, architectural twist. This Armani dress is one that doesn't need much to stand out, as Nicole dons dainty jewelry, a smokey eye, and soft tresses to finish the look.
Constance Wu in Rodarte
This budding style star surely is living her princess dreams in a dazzling bejeweled piece by Rodarte. We love how the bow detail on her shoulders is able to complement her tiny frame, and the deep-V shows just a hint of skin needed to make this look stand out!
Gemma Chan in Jason Wu
Another red carpet darling, Gemma Chan AKA Astrid Leong in Crazy Rich Asians is having fun with volume right now, as seen in her Valentino choice at the Golden Globes, and this floral Jason Wu for the Critics Choice Awards. How can this woman do any wrong?
Charlize Theron in Givenchy
Another one to always slay the red carpet, Charlize opts for a gradient-style Grecian-inspired metallic gown by Givenchy for this year's Critics Choice. She perfectly does so with side-swept sleek hair and earrings—everything you ever need to make a good red carpet statement.
Julia Roberts in Louis Vuitton
The piece Julia wore to this year's Critics Choice is one that came from Nicolas Ghesquiére's reign at Louis Vuitton, as shown in the structure and undeniable aesthetic. Opting to wear pants again for the second time in a row, Julia Roberts is our one to watch for the rest of the awards show season.
Sandra Oh in Prabal Gurung
Sandra opts for a black and white number punctuated with green earrings and an unexpected curly 'do—a look that's quite refreshing for someone who's been known to go for safe choices on the red carpet. We're loving this new you, Sandra!
Claire Foy in Celine
Another one to opt for pants is Claire Foy, in a black asymmetrical top and pants number. We love how this edgy look still comes off as feminine, paired with a disheveled 'do and minimal jewelry.
Emmy Rossum in Ralph Lauren
Giving us vixen vibes is Emmy Rossum in this wine-colored velvet Ralph Lauren number. With it, she goes the deep lip route and a clean updo, with gold accessories to punctuate the ensemble.
Laura Harrier in Louis Vuitton
Wearing white can be tricky, but choosing the right cut for a certain event makes all the difference. This long-sleeved dress with a deep-V neckline looks stunning against Laura's complexion, and is further glamourized with a single strand of diamonds and classy white and silver pumps.
Lucy Boynton in Gucci
Ever the free spirit, Lucy Boynton wows in a boho-inspired Gucci dress that looks amazing on her than it did on the runway. Lucy gives justice to the frou frou frock, as she pairs it perfeclty with undone braids and a barely there beauty look.
