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.
