The second wave of the awards season is here. With the 24th annual Critics’ Choice Awards happening, numerous A-list celebrities once again garb themselves with exquisitely stunning dresses.
Cue Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, and Lady Gaga, it is pretty evident that Hollywood’s finest women emerged at the Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar looking in every angle the definition of perfection. So as they made a case for the metallic trends to strutting the blue carpet in elegant form-fitting gowns, here are seven of the best-dressed women at the Critic’s Choice Awards.
7. Mandy Moore
Looking polished and sophisticatedly sexy, Mandy Moore donned a white Michael Kors dress. As the dress was accentuated by a side cut-out, the This Is Us star showcased her hour-glass body as she struck a pose.
6. Julia Roberts
Proving that a pantsuit is just as ravishing as a gown, Julia Roberts wore a custom two-piece look by Louis Vuitton. Her ensemble features white pants on the front that perfectly blended with her black train attached to the black tuxedo-style bodice.
5. Gemma Chan
Showing everyone what really works for her, Gemma Chan wore an A-line floral dress by Jason Wu. She channeled the coming spring featuring a very feminine and sophisticated print. It looks like she is truly the best artist to portray Astrid Leong.
4. Constance Wu
Another Crazy Rich Asians star who’s always on the best-dressed list is Constance Wu. After sporting for a nude chiffon gown at the Globes, this time around, she kept things sparkly. Wearing a dazzling Rodarte dress punctuated by a plunging neckline, she was successful in catching the attention of the crowd.
3. Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga’s dress may look underwhelming at first. But upon looking at this Calvin Klein by Appointment dress closely in terms of the color choice and train, it’s very much complementing to her periwinkle Valentino gown she wore during the previous awards ceremony. In addition, this is a subtle nod to her character Ally in A Star Is Born.
2. Nicole Kidman
Making a bold statement for a monochromatic look, Nicole Kidman opted to keep it classic. She wore a contrasting black and white ensemble by Armani Privé accentuated by a ruffled flare at one side. To impeccably finish off her look, she toted a black cube bag and wore silver bangles and bracelets.
1. Charlize Theron
Finally, dominating this year’s best-dressed list for the Critics’ Choice Awards is Charlize Theron. She looked every bit like a true red carpet royal wearing a diaphanous silver Givenchy gown. And as she made a case for the metallic trend, her pleated ensemble features a magnificent ombré effect. To complete her look, the Tully star wore an exquisite set of diamond jewelry.
