Jessica Chastain In Balenciaga – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Jessica Chastain was pretty in pink at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards which took place in L.A. this evening.

The actress wore a pale pink column Balenciaga dress with an oversized cowl-neck neckline.

This detail makes the dress appear too big for her. So as much as I love the colour against her porcelain skin, I’m not in love with the fit.

Statement earrings and clutch would have made this look much more memorable.

The look was completed with a severe bun and simple sapphire earrings.

Elizabeth Olsen In Emilio Pucci – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Red carpet newcomer Elizabeth Olsen attended her first Critics’ Choice Awards in L.A. this evening.

She opted to wear an Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 long-sleeved mini-dress with cream lace trim. She matched the dress with simple nude Pucci sandals.

Elizabeth is one of the most-anticipated stars to watch on the red carpet this season – she is an Olsen after all – and in her first appearance she did not disappoint.

Wavy blonde locks, a Lena Erziak clutch and gorgeous smile completed her look.

Elle Fanning In Rodarte – 2012 Critics’ Choice Awards

Elle Fanning eager to kick start her awards season, as she was among the first to hit the red carpet at the 2012 Critic’s Choice Awards, held in L.A. on Thursday evening.

The young actress wore a Rodarte Spring 2012 gown.

Her sunflower print gown was perfect for a sunny day in L.A.

Rodarte’s Van Gogh inspired Spring 2012 collection has seen little wear on the red carpet, so I’m happy to see the arty collection worn before next month’s Fall presentations.

This floaty floral dress works perfectly with Elle’s young and fresh persona.

Natural hair and makeup complete this youthful look.

Eva Mendes In Valentino Couture – 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards

Best Dressed Award
Eva Mendes looked stunning when she stepped onto the carpet at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards.

She was easily my favourite on the night.

Just when she was starting to become a little bit predictable, the actress switches things up wearing a Valentino Fall 2009 Couture dress.

Her black organza lace couture dress with a nude lining is deceptively sheer.

I loved the oversize bow on the shoulder which didn’t overwhelm her.

She kept her hair simple so it didn’t complete with the bow and allowed her dress to stand out.

Brian Atwood ‘Wagner’ nude pumps and dazzling earrings completed her look.

Elle Fanning In Valentino Couture – 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards

Best Dressed Teen Award
Most 12 year old girls are excited about wearing Topshop and H&M, Elle Fanning is continuing to wear Couture on the red carpet.

The young actress wore her second look from the Valentino Fall 2010 Couture collection to the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards which was held last night at the Hollywood Palladium in LA.

She looked sweet and charming in her beige strapless dress with coral beading which was worn with a beige chiffon blouse.

As always her hair is kept clean and simple.

Her look was complete with cream Valentino Spring 2011 ankle strap heels which are lovely, but I would’ve died for the runway heels.

Does anyone else see a Valentino ad campaign in this girl’s future?

Keri Hilson In Aurelio Costarella – 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards

Best Mini Award
Keri Hilson was one of my favourites at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Awards.

She wore cute yet sexy mini by Australian designer, Aurelio Costarella.

The corseted dress with a sheer yoke, embellished bustier and bell-shaped skirt is just the type of youthful sexy dress I would expect someone like Keri to rock on the red carpet.

Her look was styled with an Isharya gold mirrored polki ring and gold lace accented heels.

I’m sensing whoever made these took inspiration from Alexander McQueen, but they didn’t quite have the finesse to make them as well as they ones designed by McQueen.

Update: These heels were custom-made by Alana Hale.
