2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Roundup

We’ve seen a roundup of the men, so here is a roundup of the ladies who attended the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica, California alongside the likes of Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o.

Meryl Streep: Like Julia Roberts – her red carpet pal – and Matthew McConaughey, Meryl opted for sunglasses on the red carpet, much to my chagrin. The actress wore a Stella McCartney embroidery-detailed navy dress with flared sleeves styled with black tights, Ferragamo pumps and a fold-over Louboutin clutch. I’m rarely impressed with her red carpet looks and this is no exception. I wish Helen Mirren’s stylist would take Meryl under his wing.

Oprah Winfrey: The TV host wore an emerald green Azzedine Alaia dress, belted at the waist to accentuate her hourglass shape, which she styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Abigail Breslin: Her pastel-grey Badgley Mischka gown makes her look much older and the colour is washing her out. The only thing I like here is the hair and makeup.

Abigail Breslin In Halston Heritage – ‘Ender’s Game’ LA Premiere

Abigail Breslin In Halston Heritage - ‘Ender’s Game’ LA Premiere

Abigail Breslin joined Hailee Steinfeld on the red carpet at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California for the LA premiere of ‘Ender’s Game’ yesterday evening.

Despite being only a year older than her 16-year-old co-star, Abigail is already a veteran in this game.

The 17-year-old actress selected a Halston Heritage black gown with an open-back sheer yoke and embroidered sleeves, styling her look with vampy cat-eyes and adding a flourish via her green stone drop earrings.

Abigail is still experimenting with her style. Even though she opted for a glamorous gown, something tells me she’s a goth at heart.

Abigail Breslin In Marchesa – ‘New Year’s Eve’ LA Premiere

Abigail Breslin joined co-stars Lea Michele and Hilary Swank on the red carpet for the ‘New Year’s Eve’ LA premiere last night.

When I look at her in this Marchesa Fall 2011 dress it makes me ask, ‘What happened to Marchesa?’

I have failed to really love a Marchesa look on the red carpet for a while now and this is no exception.

The white tulle corset dress with crystal beaded details from the waist down just looks unfinished, untidy and, dare I say, sloppy as its initial charm is lost on the red carpet.

This a huge shame for Abigail as she finally nailed her hair and makeup on this occasion.

Jimmy Choo pumps completed her look.

Abigail Breslin In Nanette Lepore – ‘Janie Jones’ New York Premiere

Abigail Breslin was in New York City last night for the premiere of her latest movie, ‘Janie Jones’.

She donned a blinding neon-yellow Nanette Lepore Spring 2012 look fresh off the runway.

Well, actually looking at the runway, the blazer and pleated skirt don’t appear to be neon-yellow – more like lemon – but the photographer’s flash has made it appear harsher on the red carpet.

It was always going to be hard to accessorize this look and find the right lip colour, and that has proven to be the case.

The berry lip colour and pumps say fall, whilst the ensemble says spring. The mixed messages are just darn confusing.

Whilst it was a very cute look on the runway, it doesn’t work for me on the red carpet.

A David Yurman pearl chain necklace completed her look.

Elle’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute Red Carpet Round Up

Here are the rest of the red carpet looks from Elle’s 18th Annual Women in Hollywood Tribute which took place last night in LA.

Reese Witherspoon: The actress channelled this season’s androgyny trend wearing a classic Bocanegra pant suit with a feminine twist which comes courtesy of a lace top under her jacket. I love the emerald Irene Neuwirth earrings, but I’m not loving the exposed bra too much.

Amber Heard: Unfortunately the only thing I like about Amber’s look on this occasion is the pink Calvin Klein dress. Her makeup is considerably paler than the last time out, the lip colour is too dark for her petal pink dress and those Calvin Klein grey pumps are just ugly. All good runs must come to an end.

Jayma Mays: Opted for a very glamorous look by donning a gorgeous Malandrino gown. The sea-blue silk chiffon one-ruffled-shoulder gown was teamed with a black Hoss clutch and David Yurman jewels.
