Critics Choice Awards: Top 5 Best Dressed

The Critics’ Choice Awards are one of the best  ways to predict the Oscars. Over their 19-year history, these awards. have previewed 12 Best Picture Oscar winners as well as 13 Best Actor, 10 Best Actress, 10 Supporting Actor, and 12 Supporting Actress champs. This means that the winners are the same as the Oscars more than 50% of the time!

I’ve listed the awards at the end of this post but the thing about awards season is that winning is just the icing on the cake. If a star turns up looking fabulous then it helps raise their profile so they’ll get better scripts as well as fashion and fragrance endorsements. Here are the five actresses that I think made the most of the experience. If you have a special occasion coming up then you can copy what works for them and be a winner too.

Emily Blunt


Red is guaranteed to get a girl noticed but there is one thing to be careful of when wearing a bright colour – the dress needs to fit your shape. If not, there’s no hiding. Emily’s blunt is figure-hugging on top and flares out into a full skirt and there are about 11 red maxi dresses at Very that all have a similar shape.

Felicity Jones


The Theory of Everything actress shows that a black mesh dress can steal the show. That’s because it creates texture so you don’t know where to look. It’s cool as it looks stunning without seeming like you’ve made lots of effort

Angelina Jolie


The Unbroken director oozed old school Hollywood glamour in a silver dress. The colour contrasts nicely with her dark and it’s elegant and classy, showing she’s a woman that means business.

Jamie Chung


You don’t need to flash the flesh if you have an outfit with a pretty print. The Sin City actress looked incredible in a long sleeve maxi dress, don’t you think?

Rosario Dawson



Rosario Dawson looked regal in a royal blue dress, which is a gorgeous colour against her dark skin. Most actress wear electric blue if they wear blue so Rosario stands out for being understated except in a dress that shows off her long legs with it’s side split.

Who do you think looked the best?
