2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

There’s a bounty of looks to discuss from the 2019 Critics’ Choice Awards on Sunday (January 13) in Santa Monica, California. Celebrities joined Charlize TheronRachel Brosnahan and Kiki Layne.

Catherine O’Hara: Some pizzazz was added to the ‘Schitt’s Creek’ actress’s Georges Chakra Fall 2018 suit with the embellishment and jewels. Stella Luna shoes rounded out the tailored style.

Maggie Gyllenhaal: The silvery yellow Prada gown might not be the best but the petal-like sleeves and open back worked in her favor, especially with the juxtaposition of the dark lip.

Sandra Oh: Irene Neuwirth jewels and the keyhole neckline on the Best Actress in a Drama Series winner’s Atelier Prabal Gurung gown and temper the severe mood. Same goes for the curly hair.

2019 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet Roundup

Kristen Bell: The presenter was brilliant in blue in Cushnie Pre-Fall 2019. The gown has such a liquid drape with the mesh neckline heightening the allure.

Nina Dobrev: She has had some fantastic moments in red. This Valentino gown with a Jimmy Choo ‘Clemmie’ clutch was a pretty turn, if not the most memorable. The styling brings it down.

Poppy Delevingne: Looking whimsical in white, the model-actress wore Oscar de la Renta, Kallati Jewelry, a Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Louloudancing’ platforms. The open neckline adds plenty of va-va-voom with the earrings being a brilliant frame.

Lucy Boynton: The ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ actress showed her fashion credentials in Gucci. It wasn’t the average awards season look with its quirky-yet-girlish mix of bows and frills.

Connie Britton: This chartreuse green is not a colour we see often on the red carpet, but the twinkling Galvan London gown was a fantastic choice for her hair colour and for its sensuality.

Millicent Simmonds: The young actress charmed in a Marchesa Notte Pre-Fall 2019 gown with Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pumps. It was an appropriate choice for someone of her 15 years.

Michelle Yeoh: We can always count on the Malaysian actress to exude grace and her one-shouldered Marchesa was no exception. It has just the right amount of whimsy for her aesthetic.  A Tory Burch ‘Ophelia’ Mother of Pearl minaudière rounded out this glamorous outing.

Laura Dern: The Best Actress in a Movie Made for TV or Limited Series nominee stunned in a sexy Saint Laurent gown. The typical sequined style was sexed up with the slashed bodice.

Laura Harrier: The American beauty was naturally outfitted in Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2019 and Louis Vuitton pumps. It’s elegant with just the right amount of disco sentiment, but I still am craving more colour.

Kirby Howell Baptiste: The writer-actress looked dreamy in Reem Acra Resort 2019 with Stella Luna shoes and Dena Kemp jewels. The slit served as an alluring counterpoint to the soft draping.

Betty Gilpin: Marrying edgy with drama and feminine charm, the ‘Glow’ actress wore a J. Mendel gown with APM Monaco jewels. I’m left wanting more from the finishing touches.

Thomasin McKenzie: The New Zealand actress looked like the belle of the ball in this highly decorative Valentino gown. The flourish of the red bow took it to new heights.

Indya Moore: The accessorising brought her Louis Vuitton Resort 2019 gown and Louis Vuitton shoes into dangerous costume territory.

Rhea Seehorn: Hers was no wallflower look. The Rubin Singer gown with Hearts On Fire jewels had plenty of drama yet it retained a sense of refinement.

Judith Light: The actress continued to march to the beat of her own drum in Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2019 separates. Some might call the oversized spots clownish and too casual.

Debra Messing: The ‘Will & Grace’ star showcased a different geometric design in a Lucia Rodriguez gown which highlighted exquisite craftsmanship, but lacked colour.

Yalitza Aparicio: The ‘Roma’ star had a princess moment in Prada. The contrasting harness detail might prove divisive for the way it distracts from the wrapped bodice.

Glenn Close: The Best Actress winner exuded grace in a custom Gabriela Hearst suit with Stella Luna kitten heels and an Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch. It feels right in her element.

Angela Bassett: The ageless actress turned heads in a highly embellished Jenny Packham dress with Gismondi1754 and Vendorafa jewelry and an Emm Kuo clutch. You can tell she feels fabulous in it.

Issa Rae: The Best Actress in a Comedy Series nominee turned up the sensuality in Aliétte by Jason Rembert with a Jimmy Choo ‘Leonis’ clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Jonatina’ sandals. It’s a shame it seems to be pulling at the slit.

Mandy Moore: The ‘This Is Us’ actress’s custom Michael Kors Collection dress was clean, fresh and offered a surprise at the sides.

Dominique Jackson: The colour combination of her August Getty Atelier Fall 2016 gown and Emm Kuo clutch is elegant, but the styling is endanger of sending the look into prom territory.

Chrissy Metz: Looking pretty in pink, the ‘This Is Us’ actress showed her girly side in custom Kate Spade New York.

America Ferrera: The presenter provided a fresh update on suiting in A.L.C. with Jimmy Choo ‘Kendra’ platforms and a Tyler Ellis clutch. It’s intriguing but I crave a crisper finish.

Elizabeth Olsen: Not bothered about showing leg and cleavage, she wore an inky Alexandre Vauthier mini with a Christian Louboutin ‘Vanite’ clutch and Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ pumps.

Linda Cardellini: Many are fatigued by sheer dresses so her Zuhair Murad Resort 2019 gown with Stuart Weitzman ‘Disco’ sandals will be a hard sell.

Haley Lu Richardson: The fit and pointed neckline of the ‘Support the Girls’ actress’s Versace Spring 2018 gown is what the eye is drawn to rather than the daring slit and Giuseppe Zanotti sandals.

Anna Paquin: The former ‘True Blood’ actress’s Jenny Packham Resort 2019 ensemble was appropriate for the season and had the designer’s signature sophisticated elegance, but it will likely fade into the background.

Marina de Tavira: Unfortunately the intention of the Mexican beauty’s Vivienne Westwood Couture gown seems lost with the uneven hems feeling more like a mistake.

    Idk if it’s the makeup, dress, or facial expression but Kristen looks HOT and I’ve never felt this way before. She’s usually the “pretty” one (even when she wore sexy dresses) but here she’s totally smoldering

  2. The original AB January 15, 2019 at 12:22 pm #

    Kristen, Michelle and Laura are my favourites. Issa Rae has never got it spot on to me so I’m not surprised by her outfit.

  3. olga January 15, 2019 at 8:47 am #

    To me the best ones here are Kristen Bell (more for the gorgeous blue than for the style of the dress), Poppy Delevingne (albeit boring), Michelle Yeoh and Laura Harrier (both minus the shoes) and Rhea Seehorn (for the interesting colour)

  4. Nadine January 15, 2019 at 2:22 am #

    Mmm, I think I should’ve voted Kristen Best Dressed.

    • Draylo January 15, 2019 at 3:06 am #

      +1

    Poppy and Kristen are my favorites, I’m loving that blue on Kristen. She has been killing it lately.

    I’m happy to see Chrissy in a more youthful look. I understand that she has a more challenging shape to dress but it drives me nuts whedesigners cover her in fabric, it’s never flattering. Her makeup is also great.

  6. Chris January 14, 2019 at 11:55 pm #

    Love Laura Harrier, Laura Dern and Yalitza Aparicio out of this bunch.

  7. Lashae January 14, 2019 at 11:36 pm #

    Lucy Boynton is a WDOTY nominee in that Gucci dress

    Favorites: Michelle Yeoh, Thomasin McKenzie and Poppy Delevigne

    I’m so happy Betty G. finally wore something flattering to her figure! Just wish the styling lived up to the beautiful gown.

  9. Hailey January 14, 2019 at 11:15 pm #

    Issa looks awful. That dress does not fit her and I don’t understand how her stylist, who also designed the dress, let her leave in this.

    On the other hand Kristen looks sexy and beautiful and I like Laura Dern’s dress for the first time in a while.

    • Caitlin January 16, 2019 at 5:11 am #

      I just read in WWD that Issa Rae’s stylist is launching an eveningwear line… and he used her to promote it. I usually like her style so I’m utterly perplexed at the ugliness of this design, and of her stylist’s selfishness in making her wear it.

  10. Caroline January 14, 2019 at 10:23 pm #

    Poppy, both Lauras and Thomasin.

    Not a great round up. I’m worried that this is going to be a dud award season. Laura Dern got some fashion redemption though it was that exciting. Kirby looked good, had a Valentino feel until you got to the slit. There must have been better shoe options for Laura Harrier, the rest was simple but nice. Rhea and Kristen also piqued my interest, the colours probably were a factor.

  12. Caitlin January 14, 2019 at 10:13 pm #

    KRISTEN BELL <3

    What in God’s name is going on with Issa Rae?
    I’m disappointed in a lot of people in this round, especially Angela and Laura H. They can do so much better.

    My favorites are Michelle, Mandy and Catherine.

    Also glad to see Laura Dern much improved albeit boring.

  14. CreoleLady January 14, 2019 at 9:52 pm #

    Kristen Bell with another personal best. That blue is incredible and she knows it. A new stylist perhaps? Also love Yalitza Aparicio’s pretty in pink moment and Kirby Howell Baptiste’s seafoam dreaminess as well.

  15. JHH January 14, 2019 at 9:48 pm #

    I am horrified by the majority of the looks here. Poppy Delevingne, Kristen Bell, Michelle Yeoh and Laura Dern look great. Laura Harrier dress looks like something that I would expect Jane Fonda to wear. Linda Cardinelli’s dress is like a black version of the awful dress Kate Beckinsale wore last week. What happened to Issa Rae here and Mandy Moore looks like she is 30 years older than she is in that dress. Can someone please try to get celebrities to stop wearing all satin outfits? They almost always end up looking a mess — see Glen Close. There are exceptions but satin is just too difficult a fabric to wear for most. Is Maggie Gyllenhaal auditioning for a part in SIster Wives?

  16. Fanny January 14, 2019 at 9:34 pm #

    My favourites here are Poppy, Michelle (such a beautiful dress!), Rhea and Chrissy.

    Grande Dame Judith Light can pull off anything. I love her. And she’s a great actress.

    Michelle Yeoh looks great as does Rita Seehorn.

    I know I’m in the minority and probably will catch some flack but I’m tired of people saying Chrissy Metz looks good. She is morbidly obese and is wearing a sack. Yes, she has a pretty face but she needs to lose weight. It’s unhealthy and nothing to celebrate.

    • The original AB January 15, 2019 at 12:36 pm #

      Can’t you stick to talking about a celebrities clothes? The commentators on this blog are meant to be the fashion police not the health police.

      We can all see that she is obese and Chrissy is aware that she is obese, she has talked about it in interviews and has said it is an ongoing struggle.

      The fact that you seem to be so affected by Chrissy weight I think highlights an issue within you. Have you struggled with weight issues in the opposite direction? Anorexia or bulimia?

    • Amanda F January 16, 2019 at 6:16 am #

      Wow good thing you pointed out her weight issues – AGAIN. She seems to being doing just fine for herself regardless of your condemnation. Maybe she would rather be overweight than nasty?
