After the Golden Globes and the Governors Awards, Hollywood is gearing up for another eventful week in the awards season. The Critics Choice Awards took place last night in Santa Monica, honouring the best in film and television.

Hosted by Chelsea Handler in Los Angeles, the lesser-hyped but just as celeb-packed awards show is being considered a prelude to the 75th Emmy Awards—which was postponed four months but will now air on January 15.

Each year, celebrities and fashion icons such as Margot Robbie, ZendayaandAngelina Jolie grace the red carpet, turning it into a veritable runway of couture and high fashion.

This year, notable winners included Emma Stone, Sarah Snook, and Elizabeth Debicki. Although not as extravagant as the Globes or the Oscars, the Critics Choice Awards still delivered its fair share of red-carpet excitement. Well-known celebrities like Brie Larson, Margot Robbie, and Julianne Moore wowed with their fashion choices while rising stars also made a splash.

Below, check out our selection of the top 8 favourite looks from the evening.


At the Critics Choice Awards, Dua Lipa played with a monochromatic theme by aligning her vibrant red hair with a textured strapless gown from Prada. She chose statement stud earrings to enhance her look while keeping other jewellery to a minimum.
