I guess I still may not be over my shock at seeing all the black dresses at the Golden Globes, but I was just so happy to see color at Critics Choice Awards this year. With this exception of Reese Witherspoon, who wore black again (and a short mini, say what?) and Laura Dern, many of the stars chose lighter tones and bold, interesting colors, fabrics and silhouettes. Let’s take a look at the Critics Choice Awards 2018 fashion.
Olivia Munn skipped the Golden Globes due to illness, but she’s all smiles here and looking fabulous! She also hosted the show.
I think it’s always a hit or a miss with Allison Janney, but this dress is a clear hit.
Surprisingly, the colors are not what I would normally expect from Dolce & Gabbana, but I still love the combination, and of course, their constant sheer artistry. This gown looks fab on Allison Williams.
I think this might just be the best I’ve ever seen Chrissy Metz look. Something about this dress really brings out something in her — she usually wears dark tones, although I can’t fault her all the time because she did try to wear color.
Although I liked her pink-black Dior dress at the Golden Globes, I think Jessica Biel looks better in bolder, jewel tones.
This just happens to be the perfect color for Jessica Chastain.
Haven’t seen enough people in the off-the-shoulder trend, which I love, especially on Samira Wiley.
Octavia Spencer went back to a designer she can rely on, and has worn a few times in the past. I’m liking the color.
Metallics and Light Colors
Not a fan of her pale face and dark lips, but I do like the dress on Saoirse Ronan.You don’t see enough people wearing this kind of silhouette and it’s very flattering.
Rachel Brosnahan is the toast of the town so she had to bring it.
I would like this gown, if the bow didn’t look so deformed and if the lace didn’t make me think of a wedding dress. Sorry Kate Bosworth.
Well, Angelina Jolie isn’t wearing black, thank the Lord!
Please tell me Emma Robert‘s bangs are not permanent!
No Reese Witherspoon, no! Granted her shoes are cool AS but her knees? Not so much.
Elisabeth Moss is a great actress. Can she please just wear something that fits?
I feel like Leslie Mann picked the ugliest burnt orange and brown colors of the ugliest oversize sleeve dress out there right now.
Do you agree with my picks?
