Red Carpet Review: The Glamorous 2023 Critics Choice Awards, Including Amanda Seyfried, Janelle Monae, Stephanie Hsu, & More!


Tonight’s Critics Choice Awards bring us one step closer to the climax of awards season for film, but this particular ceremony includes stars of both the big screen & small screen to unite & celebrate their talent, accomplishments, & of course fashion! There were so many trends of the night, continuing the glitz that we saw last weekend at the Golden Globe Awards, including dramatic metallic gown, classic black dresses with cut-outs, neutral / champagne tones, midi-length designs, variations on the naked dress, bold pops of color, & multicolored dresses.

Some of my favorites of the night include Abbott Elementary actress Sheryl Lee Ralph–who arrived in what I like to call “a winner’s dress” by Jovana Louis, Glass Onion star Kate Hudson‘s silver sheer halter gown by Oscar de la Renta, Pam & Tommy nominee Lily James modernizing another Old Hollywood look by Oscar de la Renta, The Whale‘s Sadie Sink in a youthful Chanel frock, host Chelsea Handler in a chic orange Maticevski design, along with Everything Everywhere All at One supporting actress Stephanie Hsu in a classic tangerine Valentino gown, Niecy Nash-Betts shimmering in a Jason Wu confection, & the always glamorous Angela Bassett in a black velvet Christian Siriano design (& she nabbed another award for her gripping performance in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever).
