Bryce Dallas Howard in Topshop at Critics’ Choice: cute or needs tailoring?

22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards

Bryce Dallas Howard buys her own dresses for events, she’s talked about it quite a bit, but usually they’re designer or at least from Nordstrom’s. So here she is in a yellow Topshop dress with black accent lines which just looks like it needs some tailoring. It’s not bad, it just looks off the rack. Also, it looks to me like she’s had some injectables recently but maybe her makeup is throwing me off.

Emmy Rossum was in this split bodice Armani gown which just looks cheap to me. I think her severe styling, especially that blue eyeshadow, is making it worse. Emmy was there to support her fiance, Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, as Shameless was surprisingly not nominated in any categories. Mr. Robot was nominated in three but didn’t take home any awards.

Rachel Bloom of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend was in off the shoulder black Christian Siriano and I’ll say something nice – she looks like she’s having fun.

Hailee Steinfeld is 20 now! I thought she was still in her teens. She seems like she’s everywhere doesn’t she? Hailey wore a black strapless Jason Wu gown with an allover neon floral pattern. This gown is amazing. It feels like the wrong season for this, but that’s a minor issue. Look at her styling it’s perfection.

Gillian Jacobs wore a Delpozo gown which was rather interesting from the waist up with a mod metallic floral overlay but lost the plot by continuing the metallic shapes along the skirt, which was inexplicably split into two pointy sections. Who came up with this? It even has a waffle print fabric. Maybe if the skirt was plain and cut normally this would be cute-ish.

    I’ll hand it to BDH — she can pull off that mustard color, which is fiendishly tough to do. Has she had major nose work? Her nose looks super sculpted here.

    Surprised Rossum bothered with a top to her dress at all. How much of her do we need to see?

  2. lucy2 says:

    I agree that Bryce’s could have used a little tailoring. Don’t love any of the dresses.

  3. Nicole says:

    Bryce looks like a different person

  4. lightpurple says:

    Gillian’s dress looks like something Erin would create in an unconventional challenge on this season’s Project Runway.

  5. BendyWindy says:

    I think it’s Bryce’s makeup. It’s too much. She looks better with softer, barely there makeup and someone went hard on the contouring.

  6. Belle Epoch says:

    Bryce’s dress is BAD! The color is awful and it makes her look fat!

  7. Fallon says:

    Looks like Bryce had work done on her lips? She looks like a different person.

  8. Melody says:

    BDH: dress needed tailoring, face did not. I hate what Hollywood does to the self-worth of women.

  9. lucy says:

    I think Rachel Bloom looks fantastic here! You sound like you’re throwing shade at her – but I’m not sure why? Her dress shows off her curves, her legs look long and gorgeous, her hair is lovely and she looks happy and beautiful!

  10. Esmom says:

    Haley’s dress is lovely and she looks perfect from head to toe.

    Emmy R looks like she’s trying way too hard to be edgy. As for Shameless, I wanted to like it but almost every scene in the episodes I’ve watched feels forced to me. And some of the storylines just feel contrived. Maybe I gave up too soon.

  11. ell says:

    bdh is lovely, but there’s no way she’s a size US 6 (UK 10) as she says, unless she’s very short, which she isn’t. i just wish celebs were honest about their size, it doesn’t help the problem at all when they say they’re smaller than they actually are.

    all these dresses are ugly btw.

    • Lalu says:

      I get what you are saying but in the real world it’s no one’s business what size you are or how much you weigh. I don’t think it’s our business to know what size dress she wears. If she lies about it, then it must bother her.

      • tegteg says:

        BDH should just say “no comment” or “it’s inappropriate to ask me my dress size,” rather than lie about it then… I agree, it’s no one’s business. However, when she publicly lies about it, then she makes it everyone’s business. I’m sick of Hollywood women (I’m side eyeing you, Amy Schumer) doing this. They preach how they don’t care about weight and love being “curvy” and then lie about their dress size.

        HOWEVER: I will say, high end designers are notorious for vanity sizing… so it is entirely possible that at least some of these women are being told they are a 6.

      • ell says:

        agree with tegteg comment. she doesn’t have to say what size she is, but the moment you lie about it, you’re not doing anyone a favour. especially when the point you’re trying to get across is that actresses of all sizes should be able to find variety in dress samples.

      • BendyWindy says:

        These kinds of comments annoy the ever-loving crap out of me. I had the same measurements that Amy Schumer gave when she said she was a size 8- 5’6″, 155-160 lbs., and other than my bust being smaller than hers…I wore…a size 8. So when people say, “She’s lying, she’s not that size,” it’s patently ridiculous. You don’t know and it IS possible. And as for “well, the actress should just say that it’s no one’s business and not comment,” why don’t you just pretend it’s no one’s business and not comment?

      • ell says:

        @BendyWindy because it’s hypocritical to lie when you’re making a point of how unfair it is that only slim women get choices in dresses.

        also, those measurements are what amy says, which are likely not to be true, just like her being a size 8 isn’t. here’s the thing; there’s nothing wrong in being a bigger size. but the moment these celebs lie about it, they make it look as it is something to be shamed of. these comments annoy you because you take it personally, but it’s not about you. surely you should try to put it in context.

    I see injectables in BDH’s cheeks and lips. Unnecessary and a damn shame.

  13. giulia says:

    BDH: I like that she’s feeling herself here. The color and goddess style are a nice surprise. This is the best she’s looked on the rc in a.while, IMNSHO.

  14. Birdie says:

    I hate that this distracted me so much, but there’s no ” ‘s ” at the end of Nordstrom! Anyways, it TOTALLY looks like Bryce has had some work done. Hoping it’s just that her makeup artist got too ambitious with the contour, though.

  15. Fiorella says:

    Lovely colour and hair on Bryce
    She’s awesome in black mirror

  16. kri says:

    BDH’s haircolor-I would sell a kidney for it…Hailee looks great, but I am SO tired of those shoes.

  17. Marianne says:

    Oh yeah…Bryce is definitely looking tweaked.

  18. QQ says:

    Jesus The Boob Area… So Tragic cause she was Working that color too… Also DEFINITELY something done, i thought I was Going crazy watching her in Black Mirror but then now she is not in that overly artificial/plasticky/sugary Palette is kinda obvious something is happening to the nose and the mouth and maybe injectibles wise… and for what? Bah! she was super pretty

    Hailee looks super pretty and no shade whatever that is that Christian Siriano did for Rachel Bloom is a Good Thing! is interesting without being Lena Dunham Level trolling ( they both seem to have that same “I wanna be weird Vibe” and non traditional bodies for designers … Its clear one takes stylists advice and the other one does not)

  19. serena says:

    It makes me mad how they always belittle Shameless, it’s such a great show and it never won anything!

  20. Alarmjaguar says:

    I love the Jason Wu dress! Gorgeous

  21. hey-ya says:

    …sorry folks but topshop is run by a guy who took from the workers to give to the rich…makes trump look like mother theresa…

  22. gene123 says:

    I love Rachel Bloom because she just has so much fun on the red carpet. She is always smiling and laughing and being slightly tipsy and I identify with that. Everyone is so serious on the red carpet

  23. holly hobby says:

    Ok she has got to stop playing with her face now. She’s not even 40 for pete’s sake!

  24. MissM says:

    I like BDH but it annoys me how she goes on and on about buying her own dresses because no one has her size. She is a thin woman, if she had a half decent stylist she could be wearing all sorts of designer gowns. The problem is her stylist or lack of one. If celebs like Amy Schumer who are the same size or larger than BDH can get designer garb than so can she.

  25. Greentea says:

    Bryce is sooo pretty but sad to see she’s succumbed to the LA curse of getting work done to the face. Very botoxy here.

  26. Meow says:

    BDH is so pretty. Even the nose tweaks work in her favour. Gorgeous lady.

  27. Tallia says:

    The dress needs to be pressed. It’s wrinkly. The color looks great on her, but her hair could have been styled better.

    I think when she was younger she looked like she could be Jessica Chastain’s little sister.

  28. Libra girl says:

    BDH looks COMPLETELY different??!! No?? She looks so different from the Help. Her face looks so full and her nose looks different? ?? I didn’t even think that was her. Love her in that dress tho.
