Here are some of the fashion photos from the National Board of Review Awards, held last night in New York. This event used to be so low-key – there used to be no red carpet, and people would pose for photos briefly as they headed into a restaurant. People would show up in simple trousers and coats, because it’s January in New York. But like everything else, the NBR Awards have gotten more glamorous. So glam, in fact, that everyone is YAS QUEEN-ing Lupita Nyong’o today. Lupita came out to the NBRs in this Balmain ensemble, which is killer.
I don’t know why there are so few photos of Saoirse Ronan at this event, because she looked awesome and I want to see this jumpsuit from different angles. Ronan wore Emilia Wickstead and this is fantastic. She was there to support her director, Greta Gerwig – Saoirse wasn’t actually named the Best Actress.
Gal Gadot in Elie Saab Spring 2018. It’s pretty, but I find the color to be… not the best. It’s just a few shades “off” for me.
What’s up, Jordan Peele and Daniel Kaluuya? Jordan won an award for debut director, and the Get Out cast won Best Ensemble.
Allison Williams in Cushnie Et Ochs. You guys, this is a JUMPSUIT and it is fabulous. I usually don’t like what Allison wears but this is fantastic.
Laurie Metcalf in Christian Siriano. She’s adorable. I love that Metcalf is really campaigning too – Allison Janney doesn’t have Best Supporting Actress locked up, by any means, and if Allison loses, it will be because Laurie Metcalf has a lot of support.
I can’t even make out what Meryl Streep is wearing. A sparkly coat, a shiny tunic, slacks and boots? It’s all sort of a jumble. But it’s fine – not everyone has to wear cocktail-formal. She won Best Actress at the NBR Awards, but I don’t think she’s a big contender for the Oscars, honestly.
