Critics’ Choice Awards
The 27th annual Critics’ Choice Awards were held over the weekend at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles and the Savoy Hotel in London. All of the red carpet looks may be found in our gallery.
The concert, which was initially set for January 9, was rescheduled owing to an omicron variant epidemic in the United States. Instead, it took place on one of the busiest weekends in the entertainment industry’s calendar, with the BAFTAs taking place just a few hours later in London.
Keeping this in mind, the event was split between Los Angeles and London, allowing attendees to attend the ceremony that was nearest to them.
Many of last year’s winners made an appearance at the event, after their time on the red carpet was cut short by a virtual award ceremony. As a result, we now have even more spectacular ensembles.
The Irish were once again a hit, both on the red carpet and in the prize categories, as Kenneth Branagh’s Belfast won two trophies, one for Best Ensemble and one for Best Young Actor for breakout star Jude Hill.
Caitrona Balfe looked stunning in a full-length nude gown by Christian Dior, which featured a strapless column silhouette, a sweetheart neckline, and a matching belt at the waist. Jamie Dornan looked sharp in a Valentino suit, which he paired with a sky blue shirt and tie.
As visitors got into the Oscars spirit ahead of the celebration later this month, gold was a strong trend on the red carpet. Lady Gaga wowed in a beautiful canary yellow fishtail town by Gucci, complete with a black lace collar and long sleeves, a black bustier, and black train trim.
Elle Fanning glistened in gold as well, wearing an Oscar de la Renta vintage-inspired tea-length gown in a gorgeous embroidered gold material.
Kristen Stewart opted for subtle richness in a handmade Dolce & Gabbana gown draped in shimmering sequins, while Jada Pinkett-Smith glistened in a structured Maison Rabih Kayrouz brocade gown.
Serena and Venus Williams also looked stunning in Atelier Versace gowns, while Mandy Moore looked ethereal in an Elie Saab gown fit for a goddess.

Finally, there were plenty of splashes of color on the red carpet, with Selena Gomez, Chrissy Metz, and Kaitlyn Dever all turning heads in vibrant hues of red, while Kirsten Dunst kept it cool in a voluminous cornflower blue Julie de Libran gown.
