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: Jennifer Lawrence In Prabal Gurung

Who: Jennifer Lawrence, who was a tripple winner last night, taking home the Best Actress in an Action Movie award for her role in The Hunger Games as well as Best Actress in a Comedy for Silver Linings Playbook, which also won the and Best Ensemble

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

Wearing: A black Prabal Gurung gown with a sweetheart neckline, draping, and leather detailing as well as a dramatic train from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with a leather belt, Roger Vivier crystal clutch and Chopard jewellery

Verdict: Now this is a gown worthy of the red carpet. I had been getting a little worried about Jennifer’s award season after that aging Valentino gown she wore to the People’s Choice Awards, but this gown is simply gorgeous. I just adore that show-stopping sheer train that looked a little like a cape when she glided down the red carpet.

This look has given me high hopes for the Golden Globes and Oscars, as surely each look is going to get better. This gown for me is dramatic and gorgeous on her, but I am hoping that this is the last black look we see from her this award season, I really want to see her inject some personality and colour into her looks.

Other than the dress her side up-do and red manicure is perfection and I love diamond earrings and bracelet and that clutch is striking.

Even though I love it I want to see more from her as I really think she has the potential to completely wow, do you remember that gold Prabal Gurung gown that she wore to the world premiere of The Hunger Games in Hollywood – well I want more of this.
