Saoirse Ronan in Michael Kors at the Critics Choice Awards: goth girl realness?

23rd Annual Critics' Choice Awards at Barker Hanger

Lady Bird was completely shut out of the Critics Choice Awards. But at least it got nominated for everything, from Best Picture to Best Director to Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress. That’s all I ask, honestly. If Greta Gerwig loses the Best Director Oscar, so be it. But she better get f–king nominated. After being snubbed this week for a directing nomination at the BAFTAs, Greta was nominated for Outstanding Directorial Achievement for a Feature Film at the Directors Guild of America Awards. The guild awards are always a really good indicator of who will be nominated for Oscars, you know, so it warms my heart that at least the DGA nominated her. (They also nominated Jordan Peele.)

As for the Lady Bird fashion at the Critics Choice Awards… I think for Greta and Saoirse Ronan, they’re obviously saving their better looks for the other awards shows. Greta wore this Fendi sack dress, which is… eh. I mean, it’s fine for the CCAs. I thought Saoirse’s Michael Kors dress was rather meh too – it obviously washed her out and she has no business in this color, but she made it infinitely worse with the too-dark lipstick. Then again, remember that age? Lipstick isn’t always about being flattering. Sometimes you just want to wear crazy goth lipstick for the hell of it.

The only person from Lady Bird would looked awesome? Laurie Metcalf! She wore this stunning Cristina Ottaviano gown. Tell me: does anyone else feel a pang for Laurie at these awards shows? She keeps getting all dolled up and then Allison Janney keeps winning. Granted, I f–king love Allison Janney too, but it would be nice to see Metcalf win SOMETHING.

    Laurie Metcalf! Huge points to Saoirse for looking quite edgy and drawing my eye. I want Angelina to wear what Laurie wore.

  2. Léna says:

    I think Saoirse looks stunning. Love the dress. Maybe a bit much for this award show but I love it

  3. Danielle says:

    I really liked saoirse’s look. If the dress had been black it would have been too much. But I like the white with the dark lipstick and very blonde hair.

  4. Jussie says:

    I love everything Saorsie’s been wearing lately. Not because its all been amazing, but because she’s been having fun and taking risks. Not enough young actresses do that, especially during awards season.

    She’s reminding me of Cate Blanchett lately. Cate has her hits and misses too, but she’s never dull.

  5. A Croatian says:

    Laurie looks AH-MAZING! She has an amazing figure!

  6. Kate says:

    Why on this site you never talk about Frances McDormand, the Oscar frontrunner? Nothing about her at the Golden Globes and nothing about her today even if she won Best Actress at the Critics Choice Award.

  7. Zondie says:

    Laurie does look amazing! I like Greta’s sack dress, it’s sweet. And I totally get Saoirse’s edgy choices. As Kaiser said, it’s fun to go for a new look, whether it’s a hit or no.

  8. Jeezelouisie says:

    I love Laurie but I am delighted Allison is winning everything.

  9. Tig says:

    Metcalfe! What a stunning dress on her. And the color looks amazing as well.
    Not a big fan of the “heart”(?) embellishment on the dress, but she looks good in creams/whites.

  10. Mumbles says:

    Having seen both movies, Metcalf is robbed every time Janney wins. I like Janney but her character, as written, had no growth or variation – she’s a mean B, full stop. Metcalf’s character does so much, emotionally, and she brings it. To those who’ve seen it, I’m just thinking of the airport scene and tearing up.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      I agree with everything you wrote. I love AJ but her performance was a bit caricature-ish to me (maybe that’s what the movie was going for). Metcalf’s performance was more authentic imo. I’ve met so many women like her. I hope she gets an Oscar nod at least.

  11. Rosey says:

    Agreed the dress looks lovely on Saoirse but I hate the makeup.

  12. Veronica says:

    I think Saoirse looks great, honestly. The only thing I’d change is her eye makeup. The tones they used are too warm for her skin and are pulling her face too yellow – she needed a simple liner look to offset that bold lip.

  13. Anastasia says:

    The way the fabric is gathered up together right over her crotch is something I find odd and distracting, and I’m with those who don’t care for the makeup/hair color. I don’t hate it, just don’t like it, either.

    • Amy says:

      I don’t like that gathered at the crotch look either. Maybe if it were in a darker color so that it wasn’t so noticeable. I also did not like the makeup.

      Also, I literally went “eeugh!” outloud when I saw the heart cut out dress. The whole bottom of it was bad. Too much fabric. And I want to like the heart as it’s interesting and different and risky but I didn’t.

  14. Lala says:

    I like the dress, but I’m not a fan of the yellow makeup look.

  15. Lucy says:

    I see Saoirse as a baby Blanchett of sorts, and part of that has to do with her fashion. She may not be at the same level as, say, Zendaya, but you can tell she enjoys it. I do think she needs a little something on her eyes to balance with the dark lips.

  16. tekla says:

    I don’t get why Lady Bird was nominated at all. In my opinion, it was not a good movie.

    • Superniebla says:

      It makes me sad but i have to agree. It’s my kind of movie, but it was honestly so boring. The mother-daughter relationship was uninspired and the only likeable character was ladybird’s best friend. Maybe I’m just older now, but there’s nothing worse than a completely average teenaged character who’s convinced they are unique and destined for greatness. The trope is played out! It doesn’t merit any awards in my opinion.

  17. Coconut says:

    Saoirse’s yellow makeup looks corpse-like. Don’t understand the appeal.

  18. HeyThere! says:

    Saoirse Looks stunning!! I love everything about this look.

  19. serena says:

    Actually, I don’t mind Saoirse’s look. Surely it isn’t stunning or anything noteworthy but it’s fine. Also the dark lip makes it more interesting. My only complaing is that shade of blonde she’s sporting, I don’t think it suits her.

  20. minx says:

    Not a fan of these pale, wan colors.

  21. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Lol I had to laugh at that last sentence about Saoirse’s lipstick and “remember that age”. I wore a pretty much identical lip color to work the other day. And I’m 37. It has nothing do with age and everything to do with personal taste. Saoirse looks like a stunning ghost to me. Beautiful and haunting.

  22. themumy says:

    Saoirse’s makeup and hair are so bad as to be almost repulsive to me. She looks undead. But, I LOVE her dress! The fit is perfection.

  23. magnoliarose says:

    I like what Soarise is doing with her style on all these occasions. She is standing out and taking risks. She looks like a glamorous ghost of old Hollywood with a gothic twist. I think a little more eyelash and swipe of light eye color on her lids would have been a bonus but this route suits her looks.

  24. Naptime says:

    Is there something wrong with my phone because to me she looks straight up yellow and it’s not a good look

  25. Shijel says:

    I love it. But I’m a beige goth girl so I’m biased. I just don’t love that particular blonde on her.

  26. Angela k says:

    Why does she look like Jordie off StarTrek
