Finally closing out the Critic’s Choice Awards after contending with a bout of suspected food poisoning. I’m dedicated to this blog, but not “scrolling through Getty Images on the bathroom floor” dedicated. Let’s wrap this up before the SAG’s on Sunday!

Yes, it’s in her usual color range of black or white, but I am digging the feathers she’s been deploying lately. Much like “Put a Bird On It”, a few feathers can go a long way in making things less boring.
Emma Roberts in Giorgio Armani
What in holy hell has she done with her head? That is some seriously scary hair, and some seriously pointy darting on her bust. Bad all around.
Diane Kruger in Vera Wang
If she wanted to look like a chain-mail wearing butterfly emerging from a cocoon, then mission accomplished I guess?
Gal Gadot in PradaEmbed from Getty Images
I don’t know why I don’t like this more – it checks a lot of my boxes: shiny, pleating, interesting color. I think the super low-cut is making her look wider than she is.

The details on the chest are a little odd…almost like a droopy chandelier?
Yara Shahidi in Giambattista Valli
LOVE. Yara continues to absolutely kill it.

Let me count the ways in which this sucks: 1) The weird peek-a-boo bra top; 2) the stupid, stumpy, length; 3) the old lady accessories. I think that about sums it up.
Allison Williams in Dolce and Gabbana
I have been torn over this one for a week. I love seeing brown on the red carpet, because you rarely do. And I like the headband – very Gossip Girl. And the Wedgwood blue color is great. But the white lace is weird and all over the place, and it definitely needs some editing. And I really don’t know.

What is happening at her waist? That’s a lot of extra and completely unnecessary lace. I want to snip it off and see what we actually have here.
Kiernan Shipka in Delpozo
Unpopular opinion alert: I actually like this! She’s young! It’s fun! Why not!?
Madeline Brewer in Elizabeth KennedyEmbed from Getty Images
I love seeing Elizabeth Kennedy on the red carpet, she’s a relatively young designer who specialized in custom couture, and her stuff has an old school elegance to it that I love. This isn’t custom, which might explain the slightly wonky fit on the bodice.
Leslie Mann in J. MendelEmbed from Getty Images
I love Leslie Mann – she has fantastic taste and you can always count on her for a great color or pattern. This is fabulous.
Alison Wright in Pronovias
Allison is also criminally underappreciated for her role as Martha on “The Americans”, so I was glad to see her nominated here. I like this, mostly for the lovely color.
Alison Sudol in Miu Miu
I’m curious about why Alison has been on the award show circuit lately – she was also at the Golden Globes. She was in “Transparent”, but it’s not up for anything this year, and she’s in the upcoming sequel to “Fantastic Beasts”, but I don’t think anyone has started press for that yet? Either way, she’s been out and about, wearing things. Her first look here is a whole lot better than what she wore to the Globes (swipe right). Like….a WHOLE lot better.
Natalia Dyer in ErdemEmbed from Getty Images
not my favorite Erdem, but not the worst (see: Moss, Elisabeth). Bit too mumsy on her.
Sarah Hyland in Naeem Khan
Glorious. A better version of Mandy Moore’s 2017 Emmy’s dress.
Jaimie Alexander in George ChakraEmbed from Getty Images
I wish this one had picked a length, this particular high-low hem is too extreme.
Heidi Klum in Georges Hobeika
Same old, same sloppy.
Kaley Cuouco in J. MendelEmbed from Getty Images
Possibly the best she’s ever looked. She’s doing her best Carrie Underwood impression.
Niecy Nash in Badgley Mischka
She just keeps slaying. Everything she wears has character to it and fits her flawlessly.
Rachel Bloom in Christian SirianoEmbed from Getty Images
I love you Rachel, and I love “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”. This season has been a revelation. I like this, but wish the shoes were a bit sexier. The ubiquitous Stuart Weitzman “Nudist” heel would be perfect here.
Samira Wiley in Rebecca VallanceEmbed from Getty Images
Lovely. She just has the best smile.
