With the 2nd awards show of the season now over, it’s clear that the looks get better and better as the awards get bigger and bigger. What was clear about last night’s 2013 Critics Choice Awards was that the devil is in the detail. From the dresses to the hair and the makeup, there was tons of fun & inspiring looks on the red carpet last night!
Here are my top picks-
It was so much fun to see designers take pretty simplistic looking dresses and throw some fun on the back, like Emily Blunt’s beautiful cream gown. The criss cross at the back combined with the fit of the dress and the gorgeous red lips, amazing!
Another gorgeous dress (and such a surprising design) was worn by Jessica Chastain. Not many women can pull this off, but she totally rocked it. I mean who doesn’t want an embellished bow on their back?!! So much fun.
She also gets my top vote when it comes to hair & makeup. The makeup artist took a pretty basic concept in terms of a red lip, and put just the right spin on it by varying the shade ever so slightly with a hint of a pink undertone to it. Something to keep in mind the next time you wear a red lip! Also the hair is so beautifully done, striking the right balance between elegant and messy.
