Jaime King In Jason Wu – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Jaime King In Jason Wu - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

There were three black gowns on the red carpet yesterday evening at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, where the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards took place.

Jaime King’s Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2013 gown was my favourite of them all, proving that black doesn’t have to be boring.

Her black semi-sheer strappy gown with a plunging neckline and featuring a central slit was accented with a leather belt with gold-link accents.

Channelling Old Hollywood with a vampy twist, the actress styled her look with wavy golden tresses swept to one side and a bold red lip colour.

Christian Louboutin black ‘Pigalle’ pumps, David Webb jewels, and a Jill Milan clutch provided the finishing touches.

    I love this… she looks beautiful! Gorgeous gown, I love the back. I do wish she went with a sandal though.

    This dress is to DIE for and she gives it justice. I love love love it. So much so that the shoes don’t bother me so much. Definitely one of the best of the night.

    Not really a fan of the dress, it’s a bit too slinky/revealing for me and though I like the belt it doesn’t feel super original. Jennifer’s Prabal was my favorite black of the night. I do like Jaime’s styling, but for the shoes and those tacky tattoos.

    Note to self, never get tattoos on my back. Or in visible places for that matter. They can KILL an evening gown. Tattoos are beautiful, just not in this context. She looks so beautiful in this dress. She is the epitome of perfection from her hair–makeup and the dress fits her just perfectly. Until she turns around, no thanks!

      Also, so interesting to see the new design direction Jason Wu is taking. Still has girly girl as part of his aesthetic but am loving some of his moodier, sexier pieces like this one.

      Beautiful girl. Beautiful dress. Beautiful accessories.

      Shame about the tattoos. Plus the one that is her last name is just awful

    the model’s version is better

    I love this dress. Jaime always looks good in Wu, but I prefer the presentation model which obviously Jaime was going towards mimicking. I also don’t like how her hair was pinned from the back, and please cover that tattoo. I don’t normally have an issue with ink, but it does no favors to this look

    Wow, this is indeed anything but boring. She looks so gorgeous. After other pointed it out, the shoe could be better, but honestly, I didn’t notice at first because I was looking at every other gorgeous facet of her look.

    She looks phenomenal, one of her best looks in recent history. I absolutely love this look!
    BDOTW is going to be a nightmare, I don’t know who to pick!

  9. Yeliz January 11, 2013 at 12:07 #

    She looks fantastic, I love her styling. One of the best of the night.

  10. KK January 11, 2013 at 12:02 #

    I think she looks head to toe amazing! BDOTW contender!

  11. Dan Oliver January 11, 2013 at 11:38 #

    Agree with everyone else on this dress is gorgeous on her hair make up perfect the shoes are the only let down

  12. sasa January 11, 2013 at 11:36 #

    This is a very, very sexy dress but the little changes from the model look to Jaime’s make all the difference to me. The darker lipstick and the sandals work so much better then what Jaime is sporting.

      I agree, she should have totally copied the lookbook styling. Pumps rarely work for thigh high slits on gowns, they feel so stark and heavy. Also tattoo are never glamorous.

  13. Cass January 11, 2013 at 11:31 #

    She is really rocking the dress. Love it!

  14. Neli January 11, 2013 at 11:26 #

    Jamie looks almost (- shoes) exactly the same as the model, right down to the hair and makeup

  15. bm January 11, 2013 at 11:17 #

    This is my wish-list dress for Diane Kruger, I bet she would rocking that central slit like no one can do.
    Jaime did look good, but wished she choose the strappy sandal like the lookbook model.

  16. Francesca January 11, 2013 at 11:15 #

    She looks breathtaking, definitely a BDOTW contender.

    • Christine January 12, 2013 at 04:23 #

      Gorgeous! So chic! Her and Emily Rossum are my best dressed from this event.
