2018 AFI Awards Red Carpet Roundup

More stars were in the mix at the 2018 AFI Awards on Friday (January 5) in LA, in addition to Emilia Clarke, Saoirse Ronan, and Allison Williams.

Reese Witherspoon: This little red dress may have been right up Reese’s alley, and nothing all that groundbreaking, but it was a chic addition to the style lineup. I like the twisted, ruched details to further flatter the figure. Christian Louboutin ‘Corneille’ nude pumps rounded out the look.

Greta Gerwig: I cannot fully get aboard the piece-y nature of this Burberry dress, what with the embroidered lavender overlay, the uneven hem, and the wide, dropped waistband. The dark pumps didn’t help the dress’s cause, either.

Issa Rae: Issa was nothing but a ray of sunshine in this happy-chic Calvin Klein bias-cut frock topped off with metallic sandals and a Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch.

Octavia Spencer: Naturally, the actress opted for a Tadashi Shoji look. Here, she added a soft element of edginess to this ‘Ava’ ivory and gold lace dress by way of the pastel moto jacket.

Holly Hunter: What set this Paule Ka Fall 2017 suit apart was its shawl-style jacket. However, I do think that the tweedy ensemble could have benefited from a more streamlined sandal—even in a bright hue—to bring some sass to the look.

    My favorite here is Reese – I really like that one, ankles up. I kinda like Issa’s look as well. Greta deserves better than that..

    I’d change Reese’s and Holly’s shoes but all apart from Greta look quite nice with Issa being my favourite dressed of the bunch.

    Octavia for me although I love Issa’s dress , her styling is a fail (love her hair though).The rest is either meh or terrible like Greta (yikes).

    Awful look for Greta.

    Reese’s dress is so nice; I would wear it in a heartbeat. I agree with Emma that it deserved better shoes.

    Issa looks amazing in that colour, but I’m not really a fan of the hairstyle.

    Octavia looks great. The jacket is a nice touch.

    Holly’s suit is amazing, but it needed shoes. Sandals feel too naked for such a look.

    10/10 would wear Reese’s dress, but it needed a more fun shoe.
    Greta looks like she’s wearing a discount costume for a 1920s party.
    Issa’s dress is rather shapeless but she looks great in that color.
    Octavia’s look is my favorite. So put-together and sweet, but with edge from the jacket.
    Love Holly’s suit! But agree about the shoe.

    I consider Greta Gerwig look to be a WDOTY nominee, she looks bad from head-to-toe (bad makeup, bad hair, terrible dress and awful shoes).

    I don’t like any of these except for Octavia’s look. The rest are just sort of whatever to me.

      Same.
