The 2018 Critic’s Choice Awards

By January 11, 2018Fashion

Blush was the color of the night but some were more inclined to draw attention to their talent and not their Perfect Ten bodies (which looked more appealing in black than any Nichole Kidman pink or Margot Robbie bee stripes)? Or perhaps it was an in-your-face diss to the now-retired E! Fashion Police? Maybe a tribute to Tonya Harding’s 1990s ice skating costumes? It’s as if they all decided this was a “wild card” bizarro awards show. Here are some of the outstanding dresses of the evening.

I’m likely in a minority opinion, but  Mary Elizabeth Winstead wore a dreamy abstract frock off one of my favorite runway presentations. I’m a sucker for neutrals against neons, what can I say?

Another shade of blush I appreciate was on display with Rachel Brosnahan. Perfect color for her skin tone, with striking lines subtly incorporated.

And for a woman of maturity and “age” Laurie Metcalf was well put-together.

Emmy Rossom was demure in a classic LBD with sleek slit. However, I hadn’t realized the underskirt was so garish in her ensemble. I had hoped it was something else, less disco. Without it, perhaps it would have looked like she was playing Holly Golightly! Emmy could have easily chosen a blush colored satin slip to match the pastel theme of so many attendees. Almost anything else would have not looked so cheap.

 

Alison Brie’s wrap look, I actually think works. It was probably seen by some as a tad too close to “mummy” bandage, however it has a striking shade of fabric. There was a noticeable absence of jewelry, which I also admired — this trend amongst most, as I speak of Brie but also others in attendance.
