Best Dressed Award
Eva Mendes looked stunning when she stepped onto the carpet at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards.

She was easily my favourite on the night.

Just when she was starting to become a little bit predictable, the actress switches things up wearing a Valentino Fall 2009 Couture dress.

Her black organza lace couture dress with a nude lining is deceptively sheer.

I loved the oversize bow on the shoulder which didn’t overwhelm her.

She kept her hair simple so it didn’t complete with the bow and allowed her dress to stand out.

Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ nude pumps and dazzling earrings completed her look.
