Amy Adams In Vionnet – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Amy Adams In Vionnet - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie AwardsAmy Adams played it cool on the red carpet last night for the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

This best supporting actress nominee for ‘The Master’ experimented with draping in a Vionnet gown.

The asymmetrical white top transitioned to a regal blue flowing skirt with a modest knee-high side slit.

Yes, the look was an unstructured one that stood out among the other more formal and glittery red-carpet statements of the evening. But, that’s why this moment of effortless sophistication took on such a refreshing vibe.

Jimmy Choo peep-toe pumps and Stephen Webster sparkle completed the ensemble.

Jessica wore her pretty auburn hair with a simple part down the middle and loose waves. The pop of a bold burgundy or red pout would have been nice to see, though, instead of a nude lip.

Eva Longoria In Monique Lhuillier – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Eva Longoria In Monique Lhuillier - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie AwardsEva Longoria frequently favors Monique Lhuillier to outfit her dazzling red-carpet entrances, and the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California was no exception.

Last night, the actress was the ultimate glamour gal in a fuchsia hourglass gown from the designer’s Spring 2013 collection. The sultriness of this high-neck design was flaunted through its figure-hugging silhouette, a long flowing train and in the piped mini-ruffle detail that shaped the dress.

Because Eva is so petite, the gown did appear much longer on her than on the runway model. But she still carried it well.

She did leave the raspberry to just the dress, going for a jet-black Ferragamo clutch and a nude lip. And rather than a flower in her hair, as seen on the runway, a sleek updo with bouffant-style volume at the top finished this look with a bang.

Leslie Mann In Honor – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Leslie Mann In Honor - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie AwardsPretty in pink was Leslie Mann at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, hosted last night at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.

The actress was definitely seeing the world through rose-coloured glasses, as she embraced all sweet shades of bubblegum and cotton candy with her Honor Spring 2013 confection, plucked like a piece of taffy from the runway.

A sheer, long-sleeve lace top melted into a high-waisted, knee-length matte bubble skirt, and a Tiffany ‘Morgan’ clutch matched it all perfectly in pink.

Her fuchsia Jimmy Choo ‘Fitch’ ankle-strap heels weren’t the best for this look, but they were better than those shown on the runway: flat white sandals would have not worked for the red carpet. An edgier shoe in a fun, contrasting shade of cobalt would have been interesting.

A raspberry lip, natch, topped off his look that proved even redheads like Leslie can go pink.

Amanda Seyfried In Marios Schwab - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Amanda Seyfried continued to show love for London-based designers when she took to the red carpet at the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards , held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California this evening.

The ‘Les Miserables’ star wore a Marios Schwab Spring 2013 dress which was a lot more fashion forward than the look sported by her co-star Anne Hathaway.

Her unique feminine frock featured a black-and-blue lace top half and a free-flowing chiffon skirt with a diamond-shaped hemline which allowed her to flaunt her black strappy Roger Vivier sandals.

A chic knotted bun, cat-eyes and jewelled Lorraine Schwartz earrings completed her look.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Octavia Spencer  In Tadashi Shoji - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

Whoever coined the phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, was clearly referring to Octavia Spencer and Tadashi Shoji.

Octavia took to the red carpet at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California this evening for the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards wearing a custom-made dress by her go-to designer.

Her navy tulle draped cap-sleeve dress, inspired by a gown from the designers’ look book, was enriched with paillette lace appliqué across the sleeve and bodice.

Navy satin accessories, tear drop Irene Neuwirth earrings and a half-up-half-down hairstyle completed her look.

Is this still a winning combination for you, or would you like to see Octavia switch things up a bit?

Marion Cotillard In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards

Marion Cotillard In Zuhair Murad Couture - 2013 Critics' Choice Movie Awards

When I saw Marion Cotillard on the red carpet this evening for the 2013 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, my first reaction was, “the spell is broken”.

Childish I know, but I’m excited to finally see her in something other than Dior and especially Zuhair Murad Couture.

Her Fall 2012 black lace A-line dress featuring floral beaded appliqué and an open back is the most playful I’ve seen Marion in a long time.

I’m sure you will agree that her spark, that many of us were missing, is finally back.

As you would expect from Marion, her styling was impeccable with nude accessories including Jimmy Choo ‘Tahi’ sandals plus she dazzled in Chopard jewels.

A side parted bun and neutral makeup completed her look.

Needless to say she is my favourite so far.
