It’s that time of the year when all the celebrities wear their best gowns and strut the red carpet for the annual awards season. First up this year let’s take a look at the red carpet hits and misses from the Critics’ Choice Awards 2013.
As with every red carpet, there were a lot of floor-length gowns. While I was disappointed that the normally glamorous Eva Longoria gave an average look, Helen Hunt surprised with a sexy, lace-cut red gown.
I am of the mind that dresses should either be super long or short. There were a few women that could have fared better had the hemlines been different, namely Emily Blunt if longer and Marion Cotillard if shorter.
Every since Angelina Jolie’s infamous dress with the split, there are always actresses who are looking to recreate that magic and Amy Adams looks fabulous in a Vionnet gown. The slit is not too high and the draped top makes this outfit seems effortless. It is possibly the most wearable outfit in real life as well.
There were a few shorter dresses as well. Sally Field did very well in a bright red with a deep neckline. Nina Dobrev looks gorgeous but that dress seemed out of place and more appropriate for the People’s Choice Awards. And while I may love pink, I just couldn’t get behind Leslie Mann’s bubblegum pink lace dress with the over-matchy accessories.
I’m not a fan of dark colors on the red carpet and always prefer stars who take risks with colors. But if I have to pick, Naomi Watts looks great in her strapless Emilio Pucci gown with the sheer front panel.
Apart from the fashion, I loved Emily Blunt’s old Hollywood makeup with the soft eyes and bright red lip. And while there were no standout hairstyles, I did like Jennifer Lawrence’s messy updo with the deep side part.
Overall, this was an average red carpet turnout with not many memorable looks. Next up is the People’s Choice Award which should see some younger, fun looks.
