Juliette Lewis & the ladies in red at Critics’ Choice: who looked the best?

Juliette Lewis

Juliette Lewis might not be a huge, attention-grabbing name, but she looked fantastic on the red carpet at the Critics’ Choice awards. Juliette is my favorite Scientologist. I know everyone’s all about Elizabeth Moss and bemoans her involvement in the cult, but I’m rooting for Juliette to finally tear herself away from Xenu. She’s an amazing character actress and deserves some sanity.

Juliette loves Zac Posen, so she wore him once again last night. Nothing against poor Lena Dunham, but Zac usually designs for Juliette’s body type. So it makes sense that this dress works very well. Very few ladies could get away with such a deep v-neckline without looking obscene, and I don’t even mind the padded shoulders. This is old-school Hollywood glamour, and Juliette’s wavy locks compliment the vibe perfectly.

Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate disappointed by choosing a red Marchesa cocktail dress. Nothing good can ever come of Marchesa. At least she mixed it up with some Neil Lane jewels. The nude Louboutin shoes are predictable, and the Edie Parker clutch adds nothing. Christina needs some new style game! She also seems Botox-y.

Camila Alves

Camila Alves wore a sleeveless red Paule Ka gown. The dress is rather plan but for the knotted detail at the waist. This is probably something I would choose to wear and all of you would yell at me for clashing with the red carpet. Camila accessorized with Matthew McConaughey in a Lanvin suit. He looks very Vegas-y.

    They all look nice in their dresses. Juliette is perhaps over-dressed for the event based on what other people are wearing?? Kudos for her for not botoxing the crap out of her face.

    • MaiGirl says:

      I so appreciate that you said that about her un-jacked-up face. I thought the same thing. Juliette is so refreshing in every way. LOVE this dress on her too. That is so her color! I like Christina’s dress too, and Camilla Alvez looks high, as usual.

  2. LadySlippers says:

    I think Juliette and Lupita take the best dressed awards!!! WOW this red dress is a KO!!!

  3. Aims says:

    I like Juliet, but girlfriend needs to layoff the botox. When she smiled she looked like joker.

    • Josephine says:

      Seriously? She has tons of wrinkles. That’s not botox, that’s plain old age.

      • Ice Maiden says:

        Yes, she has noticeable lines on her neck, forehead and around her eyes. Which is fine – much better than the ‘permanently surprised’ botox look.

    • gg says:

      She’s ALWAYS looked like the damn joker. She has a great body though. I wish she wasn’t a $cilon shill.

  4. Francesca says:

    Camila misses the mark with that neckline.

  5. Patricia says:

    Camilla’s hair looks ridiculous. Do something with it! She’s so gorgeous but that middle part with slicked back hair is killing me.
    I always think Juliet looks great, she’s a stunner. However the shoulder pads make her waist look so tiny in comparison and she shows no figure in this dress. I’m not sure this was actually the best dress for her figure, it makes her look overly thin.

    • V4Real says:

      I was thinking that Camilla looked a bit off. I wouldn’t have known it was her if Bedhead didn’t post her name. I usually find her beautiful but not in these pics, esp the first one. It could be the way the light is hitting her face but she looks as if they applied too much eyeliner around her eyes.

  6. L says:

    I think Camila is trying to dress like J. Garner did last awards seasons. The wife of a lead contender for a Oscar. Stylish but not drawing attention away is the goal.

    It’s semi-falling flat though, I’m hoping she pulls it together for the Oscars.

    They all look great!

  8. Kiddo says:

    That first pic of Juliette’s dress; the posture, or the darting, plays like an optical illusion. It seems like Juliette’s dress is on backwards or her head is turned 180 degrees to the back. In the rest of the photos she looks good. I don’t hate the dress on Christina Applegate. I think I might really like that dress in another color or maybe black. I don’t care for it in red. But it has a retro classic feel, very sexy, but not twee like something Zooey Deschanel might wear.

  9. della says:

    I adore Juliette Lewis, but this dress proves that Zac Posen is just not a good designer. All his dresses are shiny, gimmicky and unbalanced. Juliette Lewis makes it somewhat work but Lena Dunham never stands any chance as long as they are friends.

  10. Sullivan says:

    Juliette is quite pretty. The style and color are flattering.

    Camila, what a beautiful face.

    I don’t care for Christina’s dress. Or shoes. I wonder if she regrets the ankle tattoo? It seems *dated* to me, but I don’t know enough about tattoos. I find some to be exquisite and timeless, but others are the tattoed versions of acid-washed jeans.

    • Renee says:

      You are right about the tattoos. I think that I am going to have to borrow that line, “the tattooed versions of acid-washed jeans”. Classic. I will, of course, give credit.

  11. Elle Kaye says:

    Juliette Lewis is aging amazingly…she looks stunning. I think she looks more beautiful now than she did twenty years ago.

    • Tulip Garden says:

      I agree! Also, her styling has improved tremendously. Now she just needs to wave “buh-bye” to Xenu and I’m officially a fan.

  12. Grant says:

    I think Christina looks great!

  13. Arock says:

    Juliette Lewis has aged so well. She carries her youthfulness in her face and it radiates. I’m so happy she hasn’t fallen into the Botox pit (or at least made good choices) like so many others- looking at you, Nicole Kidman. The dress is ok but it’s all about the glor and tailoring on her, so yea, go Juliette.
    Camilla shows up and gets way too much attention. I feel like the woman who married naked bongo charming man should be more fun but all I get is smug/boring. *shrugs*

  14. Amanduh says:

    Love Juliette Lewis…became a huge fan since seeing Ms. Mallory Knox in action. She looks great!

  15. Marianne says:

    Camilla looks like a movie star in that dress. But I can’t help and really love Christina’s dress. Its very cute.

  16. minime says:

    Camila Alves is gorgeous! I would prefer to see a different style in her though…I don’t know but she always seems to dress a bit “heavy”. I would like to see lighter, younger stuff on her. Anyway, she is simply beautiful.

  17. Leah says:

    MMs wife is gorgeous, great eyebrows too.

  18. lucy2 says:

    I kind of like all of these too. The top half of Christina’s is pretty, but I don’t care for the skirt and shoes so much.

  19. db says:

    I know stylists like nude shoes because it supposedly lengthens the leg, but nude always looks wrong with strong colors to me.

  20. Esmom says:

    Juliette to me looks so much like Rachel Griffiths here, I’d never noticed the resemblance before. Count me in the camp of people who love her. As to Favorite Scientologists, Elisabeth Moss is mine although to be honest I always forget Juliette’s one of them.

    Christina looks cute, I think her hair and makeup are both really pretty. And Camilla looks pretty flawless to me from head to toe.

  21. Zigggy says:

    I actually think Christina looks good, the dress isn’t too bad. Juliette always looks like fun- love that she and Brad Pitt were together, what an interesting coupling!!

  22. Dotty says:

    In the second pic, Juliette’s face looks more like Rene Zellweger’s than Rene’s new face looks these days.

  23. I Choose Me says:

    Camila is beautiful but has looked OVER IT in every pic I’ve seen of her this award season.

    Why does every Marchesa dress have such hideous detailing. All that lace and frufru frippery and loose or hanging threads that scream budget. Ugh.

    • Livan says:

      I Think I’ve never seen a picture of Camile when she does NOT look over it! 😉 She should be smiling though, it’s a great dress!

  24. Fue McCormick says:

    OK … I’ll say it: I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that Marchesa dress!

  25. Norman says:

    I thought Camila Alves was the best dressed of all but certainly Juliette did well too. I also liked Amy Adams’ dress.

  26. Alexa says:

    I love Juliette’s dress! I think Christina Applegate looks AMAZING! And Cammy Alves also is owning it. I LOVE HER DRESS TOO!

  27. Mrs. Ari Gold says:

    Why is Camilla Alves posing alone? I know I sound really bitchy but why should I care about her? I only know her as McConaghey’s wife.

    I feel like she’s always interjecting herself into everything but what else has she done?
