I’ve gotten a little behind in my wishes for this years Critics Choice Awards so I decided to add another lust to today. We are gearing up for a really chic red carpet and I am really excited to see what everyone will bring to the second major stop on the race to the Oscars. Charlize Theron is loyal to Dior, but sometimes she steps outside of that box and gives us a look from another label. I had already picked this black and white Givenchy Pre-Fall 2019 color blocked halter gown which features a column silhouette and a center split before Charlize had stepped onto the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards wearing a black and white custom Dior Couture gown. I thought about changing it in the wake of that gown, but to be honest Charlize loves black and white on the red carpet so it wouldn’t surprise me if she did the color combination back to back. I think that this black and white Givenchy gown is a very modern glam moment and I believe that Charlize has the statuesque beauty to really make this a beautiful moment. An ultra black Christian Dior ‘Diorama’ clutch, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, white Christian Louboutin ‘Multipot’ strappy leather sandals, and a pair of Harry Winston diamond chandelier earrings would all make this look head to toe perfection.Elizabeth Olsen hit a stride last year with her style for the first time in a while while out promoting her blockbuster film Avengers: Infinity War. She sees herself nominated this Sunday for Best Actress in a Drama Series for Facebook Watch series Sorry For Your Loss. I want to see her bring simple elegance to the red carpet this Sunday wearing this black Chanel Spring 2019 RTW sleeveless tea length gown which features a sheer yoke and hem and a layered geometric construction. The gown itself isn’t anything spectacular, but I think it would be a very chic and glamorous moment for Elizabeth to wear on this red carpet especially if paired with a black Roger Vivier ‘Sexy Choc Rigid’ crystal buckle clutch, a sleek updo, defined eyes, red lip, and simple black Gianvito Rossi pointed toe ankle strap pumps. I was honestly a little surprised that Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding wasn’t on the red carpet on Sunday at the Golden Globe Awards. I do hope that he will join his co-stars at the 2019 Critics Choice Awards this weekend though where he is nominated with them for Best Ensemble Cast in a Movie. I know that Henry has some really chic style that goes between being classing and boundary pushing. I went with a more classic look for Henry opting for this sleek black Dior Man Pre-Fall 2019 tuxedo which features a one button double breasted blazer. This style has become one of Kim Jones’s signatures since he took over the reigns of the house last June. This more slim fit version of this suit I think I right up Henry’s style aisle. I think a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo Orlato’ oxfords and a black button up would bring this look to life on the red carpet.Laurie Metcalf has earned a Critics Choice Award nomination for her role as Aunt Jackie in The Connors and I’m interested in seeing what she will bring to the red carpet. I have grown fond of her looks and when I was searching for the perfect look for her to wear I went to one of her go-to labels Badgley Mischka first. I saw this silver sequined long sleeve column gown which features a pink velvet studded harness like detail and a small train and it just clicked. Is it the most obvious choice? No. Laurie tends to like gowns that have a bit of a mother of the bride vibe to them and this gown does not. It has a chic glam style that is edged up a little with the built in harness. A sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a light pink velvet Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, simple diamond drop earrings, and silver Badgley Mischka ‘Veil II’ t-strap crystal embellished sandals all would ensure this is a very glamorous moment on the red carpet. Rachel McAdams always bring the glitz and glam to the red carpet so when I saw her name on the list of nominees for Best Actress in a Comedy Movie for her performance in Game Night. I hope that we see her on Sunday night at the Critics Choice Awards red carpet and I would love it even more if she wore this black Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture tuxedo inspired gown which features a lapel detailed bodice with a plunging neckline, embellishments on the top of the skirt, and a sheer a-line skirt. I love this gown and I definitely think that it is something that Rachel would definitely be able to sell this look to me with a sleek vintage inspired updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy Strass’ pointed pumps, and Messika Fine Jewelry ‘Mata Hari’ asymmetrical wing cluster earrings.
The 2019 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday January 13, 2019.
