Mendel spring 2013 floral dress, while Jessica Chastain opted for an Erdem dress also with purple floral details. Naomi Watts wore an elegant Valentino black dress.

The 2013 SAG Awards – The Outfits

To get straight to the point, my favorites of the night were Marion Cotillard and Naomi Watts. They are the first that come to my mind when I think about last night’s red carpet appearances. Naomi Watts looked stunning in a white Marchesa strapless gown. The fact that she kept the styling simple, made it  look classic and sophisticated. Marion Cotillard wore Christian Dior as usual. The design of the dress really worked out for her. I like it and I also like the fact that, despite wearing the same brand over and over again, Marion always manages to show us a new approach of the look. Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Kerry Washington looked very elegant as well. I’d also add Nina Dobrev and Jennifer Garner on this list. Jennifer, who doesn’t take risks when it comes to choosing the dress for the red carpet but neither does she make big mistakes, opted for a sheer gold Oscar de la Renta dress.

Jessica Chastain was another pleasant appearance on the red carpet. Her Alexander McQueen dress is definitely an improvement from what she has worn this awards season. Her dresses have been so lackluster, I believe she deserves to make a great comeback.

Sometimes the dresses, as presented on the runway, don’t look so good on the red carpet. For example, as much as I love Giambattisa Valli, Anne Hathway’s look did not impress me. The most disappointing was undoubtedly Jennifer Lawrence. The design looked completely wrong…it just looked like a cloth wrapped around her body. Just because it’s tagged Dior doesn’t mean it is good.

The 2013 Critics’ Choice Awards – The Outfits

2013 Critics’ Choice Awards -THE OUTFITS

You know it’s the awards season, when there is literally an event every day. People’s Choice Awards were followed by last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards where the red carpet appearances improved pleasantly from Wednesday’s show. Therefore, I enjoyed it more. Without a doubt, Emmy Rossum’s Carolina Herrera dark blue dress, Marion Cotillard’s Zuhair Murad floral ensemble and Jaime King’s Jason Wu black gown are my favorite outfits. I will add Emily Blunt’s look on my list as well, not particularly because of her Miu Miu dress, but because of her flawless retro hairstyle. What delighted me however was Marion’s choice to wear something else than her usual Dior dresses. Not that I mind them of crouse, but it’s nice to see something fresh in her wardrobe. (more…)
