Critics Choice Awards - The Best & Worst List!

Just one week after the Golden Globes we have the Critics Choice Awards to feed our need for style inspiration so we've put together some of our absolute favourites and not so favourites from the night!

Nominations wise 'The Favourite' led the pack with 14 nominations closely followed by 'Black Panther' with 12 nominations. 

As with any awards night the bar was set quite high on the blue carpet - Even though the style from the Golden Globes was good I actually preferred some of the looks from the Critics Choice awards as I think a lot of the looks are a little more paired back and more achievable in terms of style Inso!

Here's some of our best:

  1. Nicole Kidman

Love this monochrome Armani Prive number on Nicole. Being so tall she really worked the curved shape of the dress and I love that she finished it off with such a boxy bag to contradict the look! She has such great shaped eyes but I do think the smokey eye was a little over the top, maybe a stronger lip would have been my preferred go to with the monochrome but in saying that, she looked divine!

2. Julia Roberts

Another monochrome look from the absolutely stunning Julia Roberts. I loved what she wore at the Golden Globes and you can see she went for the same style - and rocked it! I think I preferred the golden globes look but loved this Louis Vuitton number and the choker too - fab! 

3. Charlize Theron

Absolutely adore Charlize Theron's silver metallic number from Givenchy. The one shoulder and cut out design with ombre effect skirt is something we can definitely see following through to the high street. Ombre was huge last year and metallics were everywhere over party season, so we can definitely hope to find inspiration on the high street! Her makeup look was the perfect match to the dress too, going for a sultry smokey & nude look but ensuring she gave enough colour to make her stunning features stand out!


4. Gemma Chan

No words! This is one of my favourite looks from the night, I just think Gemma absolutely owned this number from Jason Wu. She's so tiny but this didn't swamp her at all, in fact, it showed off her waist and she make up look was just on point. I mean her skin is just perfect and the makeup tones perfectly match the floral look.

5. Lady Gaga

Not as out there as her Golden Globe look but we're really loving this soft blush sheath from Calvin Klein. It's the picture of elegance and her hair and makeup are perfectly matched with soft curls and pinky hues. It's actually lovely to see Lady Gaga in more understated looks bringing out her natural beauty.

6. Kristen Bell

Love this pop of colour from Kristen Bell, and the sheer detailing on this Cushnie sheath. Her soft hairstyle and makeup look really come together to make something simple look so elegant and eye-catching. Go Kristen!


7. Rami Malek

He was just a superstar in Bohemian Rhapsody and we're loving his look from the blue carpet. Love to see the guys moving away from back tuxedos and doing something different, yet Rami keeps it classic with this pale grey look!

Some of our not so loved looks:

  1. Olivia Munn

Generally Olivia doesn't really get it wrong and could look good in a black bag, but this just doesn't do it for us at all! Which is a shame because I think her makeup look is absolutely gorgeous. The statement red lip is just #goals but the frilly Andrew Gn number was just a little too flamenco dancer for the star.


2. Lucy Boynton

Bohemian Rhapsody was one of the best movies of the year last year (in my opinion!!) and I just loved the performances from Rami Malek and Lucy Boynton so it's hard for me to say that I just did not like this look from Lucy at all! The grey frilly Gucci gown didn't do anything for her shape or colouring, and honestly, I just did not get the pink belt at all.


3. Glenn Close

What an amazing actress this woman is. If you're ever in search of a good thriller check out Fatal Attraction with Micheal Douglas - it's brilliant! Glenn actually won the award for best actress tied with Lady Gaga on the night for her role in 'The Wife'. Unfortunately, we weren't loving Glenn's choice of suit - the colour is lovely but we just weren't feeling the length of the skirt and overall it just swamped her a little!

Did we miss anyone?! Let us know what you think!
