Divas and Darlings - Critics Choice Awards 2012

Red Carpet Fashion

Critics Choice Movie Awards 2012

Its back to back awards shows this week, with the Critics Choice Movie Awards that took place last night in LA. There was a mix of styles with both short and longer length gowns. Nothing groundbreaking, but worth a look at. 

Cropped Frocks

Kirsten Dunst was engaging in a feminine black silk chiffon Christian Dior dress with sheer frill hem. Black ankle strap heels and a side swept ponytail finished her look. 14-year old Isabelle Fuhrman chose a playful Christian Siriano dress with grey feather fringed skirt. Age appropriate but maybe too funky for this occasion. Chloe Moretz, on the other hand (who is also 14) looked mature in weighty black and grey dress with frilly sleeves, by Chanel. Star of 'The Artist', Berenice Bejo dazzled in this embellished blue number by Elie Saab, paired with gold broad strap Jimmy Choo heels.

 A Ray of Sunshine

If green was yesterday's red carpet colour, then today's is certainly yellow. Diane Kruger was stunning a yellow and grey colour-blocked and pleated Prada dress with halter neck. Her best accessory - a cerise pink pout and Prada clutch. Elizabeth Olsen was a vibrant sight in Pucci, wearing a beautifully beaded yellow mini. I'm let down by her shoes. Elle Fanning disappointed me in this sunflower print Rodarte gown. The term 'shapeless shower curtain' came to mind. Ahna O' Reilly put on a quaint sheer white Honor dress with lemon underskirt. Lilac heels complete her cutesy look.


Missi Pyle wore a peach prom style strapless dress, which gives me Deja Vu of the one Demi Lovato wore in the previous post. Emma Stone was striking in green once again, this time in a navy and emerald graphic print gown by Jason Wu. It has key-hole cutouts on the neckline and a belted waist. 'Cougar town's' Busy Phillipps chose a vividly shaded reddish pink wrap gown, by Antonio Berardi.

The Minimalists

Shailene Woodley was dare I say it - dull - in a taupe Calvin Klein column gown. A few interesting accessories would've perked up this look. Jessica Chastain wore a simple rose pink Balenciaga gown with roomy cowel-neck. It needs something, drop earrings, clutch or a bracelet perhaps. These two need some accessorizing tips from Diane Kruger. Stacy Keibler was George Clooney's +1 at the event, where she looked elegant in an understated white gown by Armani. I've never been happier to see a sparkly silver clutch bag.

Classic Beauties

Charlize Theron wowed in an Azzedine Alaia gown. Her black scallop edged gown fell into an elaborately tiered skirt. This is one of my all-time favourite looks on Michelle Williams. Her beautiful Chanel gown features velvet-trimmed sleeves, a black waist band and wrap skirt. Evan Rachel Wood's embroidered black gown is by Valentino. Its an elegant look, but seems to be mismatched with the hairstyle.
