Awards season is upon us and the stars were a little more casually chic at Thursday’s Critics Choice Awards. Once again Cate Blanchett looked stunning in a loose-fitting dark green Lanvin dress accented with a super good looking wide jeweled belt. She kept the rest of the look toned down wearing no jewelry and simple hair parted on the side. The strong red lips (which I totally love) add a pop of colour to the monochromatic dress. I love this look. It’s super chic, simple and modern. And that shade of dark green is a great colour and looks cool with black.
In stark contrast to Blanchett’s dark coloured gown, Lupita Nyong’o followed up her unforgettable appearance at the Golden Globes in a custom white Calvin Klein Collection dress. And she looked incredible – again. Super modern and very good looking, the dress was also sexy showcasing Nyong’o awesome figure. She also kept the accessories to a minimum which worked well for such a sleek gown.
Sandra Bullock went for some colour in a custom plum strapless tiered down with a jeweled belt. It’s an elegant dress but it’s not my favourite look. But I prefer it to the Prabal Gurung colour blocking dress she wore to the Golden Globes. And she looked lovely – love the long straight hair and earrings.
Next are the SAG awards where the style stars are likely to step it up a bit. So stay tuned for more fancy dresses to come. Award season is totally like the Stanley Cup for fancy fruits!
