Lupita nyongo calvin klein Critics Choice Awards: Lupita Nyongo In Calvin Klein %tag

Who: Critics’ Choice winner Lupita Nyong’o 

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A custom ivory silk Calvin Klein Collection bandeau dress featuring cut-out detailing, teamed with a gold box clutch

Verdict: I love it when Hollywood newcomers outshine the old guard during award season, the winner of the best supporting actress award wowed at the Golden Globes, but I think this Calvin Klein bandeau dress is her best look let – she looks flawless.

Everything from the bandeau style to the cut-out detailing and the crisp white colour – I love this look from head-to-toe – she really is red carpet perfection.

I loved Margot Robbie in Elie Saab and Amy Adams’ pop of pink in Roland Mouret – but for me Lupita is hands down my favourite red carpet look from this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

Who was your best dressed?

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Margot Robbie In Elie Saab

margot robbie elie saab Critics Choice Movie Awards: Margot Robbie In Elie Saab %tagWho: The Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie

Where: At the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica

Wearing: A black Elie Saab jumpsuit, featuring long black lace sleeves, from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2014 collection, teamed with an Alexander McQueen ‘Panther’ clutch also from the spring/summer 2014 collection

Verdict: I love gowns, especially during award season, but I also love something a little different and the gorgeous Australian actress who wowed me in Gucci at the Golden Globes looked incredible in this elegant Elie Saab jumpsuit.

What I love about Margot, other than the fact you can see that she is new to the industry, which I love, is how effortless she makes every red carpet look. This look is polished and relaxed at the same time and makes her standout – I also love her beach-tousled hair as well.

Basically – Margot is just hot. I think she is fast becoming one of my red carpet crushes.

Are you a fan of a jumpsuit on an award show red carpet?

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Jessica Chastain Dazzles In Prada

Who: Jessica Chastain, winner of the Best Actress accolade for her role in Zero Dark Thirty

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A red Prada gown featuring jewel embellishments to the plunging neckline and bow detailing to the back, teamed with Harry Winston jewellery

Verdict: I love, love, love red dresses on the red carpet, add in fiery red hair and gorgeous embellishments and I am most certainly sold.

For some I am sure this look from Jessica is a little too tame, well that maybe the case from the front but then you see that incredible embellished-bow on the back – seriously wow!!!

Everything about this look is gorgeous – from the dress to the incredible jewels to her flawless make-up and Old Hollywood waves. I think it is going to be a great award season for Jessica.

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Emmy Rossum Has A Princess Moment In Carolina Herrera

Who: Emmy Rossum

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A navy-blue celestial printed Carolina Herrera gown, featuring an organza overlay, star shaped crystal-embellishments to the nape and at the waist and grosgrain waistband from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with light blue drop earrings

Verdict: This is a breathtaking look from Emmy and as regularly Fashionista Barbie readers will know I do love a ‘Princess’ look and this is it from last night’s Critic’s Choice for me – that celestial printed organza overlay makes this gown heavenly.

If it wasn’t enough that the gown was spectacular I just adore her Old Hollywood wavy locks to the side and those OTT drop earrings – Emmy is simply stunning.

I loved everything about Carolina Herrera’s pre-fall 2013 collection and I am so pleased to see it on the red carpet and I don’t think this will be the last we see from this collection.

Do you love this Princess look as much as I do?

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Anne Hathaway In Oscar de la Renta

Who: Anne Hathaway,  winner of the Best Supporting Actress award for her role in Les Miserables

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A Platine spiral bugle bead Oscar de la Renta gown, teamed with diamond stud earrings and bracelet

Verdict: At first glance I wasn’t sure whether I liked this gown on Anne or not, I am not saying it doesn’t look incredible on her, the slinky silhouette suits her, it just didn’t wow me like I hoped.

Sparkles on the red carpet normally gets my vote but when I look at this gown all I can think is that this is something Nicole Kidman would wear or very similar to something she has worn. Again not a bad thing, I am just a little underwhelmed I think – here’s hoping for more at the weekend.

What I did adore though is her flawless make-up, that shade of lippy is divine, and I like her pixie crop all styled.

Is it just me who is a little bored by this look?

Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Nina Dobrev Sparkles In Monique Lhuillier

 Critics Choice Movie Awards: Nina Dobrev Sparkles In Monique Lhuillier %tag
Who: Nina Dobrev

Where: At the 18th Critics’ Choice Movie Awards held in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: An aqua-blue embellished Monique Lhuillier cocktail dress featuring keyhole detail at the bodice from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with Brian Atwood heels

Verdict: I wasn’t the only one who missed Nina on the red carpet of the People’s Choice Awards earlier this week, but it was worth waiting to see her this award season as this is one divine Monique Lhuillier dress.

Whereas everyone seemed to go for floor-length at last night’s Critics’ Choice awards it was refreshing to see the Vampire Diaries star embracing her youth and incredible figure in this jewel encrusted beauty. I am not sure if they are sequins or actual jewels but they certainly dazzled in all the right way for me, and the colour is just gorgeous.

2012 was a great style year for Nina and it seems that 2013 is just going to see her shine even brighter on the red carpet and I can’t wait to see more. I simply love this sexy dress on her.

Critics’ Choice Awards: Diane Kruger Stunning In Prada

DianeKrugerPrada Critics Choice Awards: Diane Kruger Stunning In Prada %tag

Who: Diane Kruger

Where: At the 17th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards in Los Angeles

Wearing: A yellow and light blue wrapped halterneck Prada gown from the spring/summer 2012 collection, accessorised with a popping pink Prada pochette

Verdict: Get used to pastels as they are going to shimmer through spring and summer and I am in love with Diane’s dress. I have to own up she is one of my favourite red carpet stars as she always looks so effortless in her beauty and the Critics’ Choice look was no different. Everything from the colours to the silhouette, the bright pink clutch and the tousled up-do, Diane just looks so chic and easily becomes my best dressed.

I don’t think Diane knows how to do a bad or mediocre red carpet look – always sublime.
