Lady Gaga in Calvin Klein at the Critics’ Choice Awards: stunning & improved?

24th Annual Critic's Choice Awards Arrivals

The Critics Choice Awards were last night, and good lord they were low-budget. It’s like the feed to the show went out at the CW for minutes at a time, there were commercial breaks in the middle of speeches, and very few people in the room were even paying attention to the awards being passed out. Still, the awards did solidify some storylines and campaigns – you can see the list of winners here. I think the Critics Choice showed that Lady Gaga’s Oscar campaign is still alive. She’s facing stiff competition from… Glenn Close? Gaga and Glenn both won Best Actress, and Gaga also won Best Song. Gaga was so happy that she finally got to do the “surprise reaction” she had been practicing for months. Gaga left the blue hair at home, thankfully – she went glam in this Calvin Klein column sack dress which I actually love. It read as off-white in some photos, but it was actually a very pale pink.

The other Best Actress winner was Glenn Close, and she wore this ice blue Gabriela Hearst. She’s lovely and she’s so happy that she’s winning some stuff.

Kiki Layne in Versace. This wasn’t my favorite thing on her, but I enjoy the fact that she’s coming to play on red carpets. She’s got a stylist and she’s serving up some looks.

Mandy Moore in Michael Kors. YIKES. How unflattering. Mandy has a nice figure too, but this makes her look so boxy.

Timothee Chalamet is also serving up some looks for his Oscar campaign – he wore this colorful Alexander McQueen suit which… it’s bizarre, but better he wear this at the Critics Choice rather than at some real awards show.

    Best look Gaga has done all awards season so far in my opinion. So simple, and so gorgeous.

    • Pandy says:

      And I see towel with train and a terrible hair do. LOL.

      • xdanix says:

        Ha, I guess it’s all in the eye of the beholder! But I personally really like that dress, I think it’s so pretty. And while I don’t adore the hair COLOUR, I would choose this look 50 million times over her Globes look, or the NBR awards (I actually really liked the dress, but once someone pointed out that it looked like she was carrying around a giant feathered turkey that was all I could see!) or going further back than awards season, that giant Elizabethan costume-like THING she was wearing at the London premiere of ASIB.

      • Heather says:

        LOL I saw a sheet . Like she woke up and realized she had an award show to go to so she kinda did her hair, and wrapped the sheet around herself, because she was running so late.

      Shower curtain Gaga. Her styling is terrible whilst she tries ‘ old Hollywood’

    “The Critics Choice Awards were last night, and good lord they were low-budget.”

    And the irony is of course that the Critics Choice is technically waaaaaaaay closer to something legitimate than the Golden Globes will ever be.

    Whereas the Golden Globes is a scam, Critics Choice at least involves legitimate journalists…and more than 90 of them. But thanks to a flashier show and smarter producer, the golden globes will have 10x the audience and is considered one of the big ones. Hilarious!!

    • Squirrelgirl says:

      Is it legitimate though? We were supposed to believe that a few of these categories were “ties “? It just seems like the same phony awards just like the rest of them.

      • Mia4s says:

        I said “something closer” to legitimate! Not legitimate! I’m not crazy. 😂

        But yes more legitimate than the Golden Globes. So that will tell you how bizarre this all is!

        My guess is they’re using a “within a couple of votes” thing for a tie. One tie happening is unusual, but it happens. Two? LOL!….OK.

      • Squirrelgirl says:

        Haha fair enough Mia! And yes I agree maybe not true ties but within a few votes. I think the category with Amy Adams that was tied had Patricia Arquette winning but people are so sick of Amy Adams losing that they made it “a tie”.

  3. Char says:

    Gaga’s speach sounded so fake.

    • Darla says:

      I cant believe how fake I find her. I hadn’t realized it until this publicity tour. Ugh.

    • Jen says:

      I couldn’t even get past the sobbing and “meaningful” embrace with Bradley Cooper once they announced her name. You would honestly think she had just won the Academy Award. I actually loved the movie but Gaga has SO overplayed her hand here, I think everyone is sick of her.

      • chloe says:

        I love the part how she went on about creating the character, it’s like really you’re playing the role that has been done 4 times before, plus you are a singer, I don’t think this role was a stretch for her. I actually liked the movie, but she has gone over the top with this Oscar campaign, go Glen Close.

    • jay says:

      Ugh…Gaga. Stop. We get it. Enough. You’re becoming the Lena Dunham of music.

  4. josephine says:

    I really like Kiki’s dress although I do think it’s one that looks better in motion. It fits her well.

  5. Charfromdarock says:

    Gaga looks like she borrowed a dress from Angelina Jolie.

  6. Uppenyrcraut says:

    Curl and set form 1955 with a modern dress – not a fan.

  7. Lucy2 says:

    Kiki’s is great.
    I really hope Glenn Close doesn’t lose to Lady Gaga at the Oscars. Travesty.

    • MCV says:

      I think either Glenn or Olivia will win the Oscar for best actress. Best song is a done deal for Gaga and I don’t see the academy giving her 2 oscars the same night. Also the Critics Choice are not the best way to guess future oscar winners, SAG awards will tell who is the favourite.

      • Mia4s says:

        “SAG awards will tell who is the favourite.”

        That’s not actually necessarily true either. Regina King is not even nominated for a SAG and remember 2 years ago Denzel Washington won the SAG but Casey “Gross sexual harasser” Affleck won the Oscar. We won’t know anything more after the SAGs really.

  8. grabbyhands says:

    Improved, not stunning.

    I still hate all the beige, taupe, blush that is popping up on the red carpet, but Kiki Layne carries it off at least.

    Poor Mandy Moore fell victim to the “bad color, bad cut” fashion that plagued the Globes. What a terrible choice. And her hair made it worse.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      Brace yourself, because “ beige, taupe, blush“ is supposed to be the big deal for spring. Nude can be such a tricky color to get right.

  9. Shazze says:

    This is the most bland look yet

  10. khaveman says:

    Glenn Close – all I want to do is give her some cropped black ankle trousers with a satin seam up the side and some beautiful pumps – the skirt is a fail, but the jacket is working. It screams grandma of the bride.

  11. Notyouraveragehousewife says:

    I noticed that there were a few award winners that tied. Is that normal with these awards? I don’t recall that ever happening before.

  12. Laura says:

    I still maintain that Gaga is looking more and more Lohan-esque in the face.

  13. Case says:

    I think Lady Gaga is phenomenally talented and seems like a decent person. However, the theatrics at winning an award need to stop. She was fake-sobbing from the time her name was called until she stopped speaking (her eye makeup looked perfectly in-tact all the while) and it was so ridiculous to watch.

    I like it when people are genuinely moved by winning something. It’s sweet. This was…not sweet.

  14. CheckThatPrivilege says:

    I really dislike the shape of Gaga’s dress and prefer that ice-blue number. From comments about her award theatrics, I’m glad I missed all that. Graciousness and gratitude are beautiful traits, but fake and overacting get old fast.

  15. therealMrsKC says:

    A tie? Seriously? LOL yeah right. How much did the studio pay for her to be in a “tie” in Glenn Close? Suuuuuuuure Jan.

    The dress is better than the blue thing she wore but it is still bad. Bed sheet. I cant with this woman.

    • xdanix says:

      Nah, if they were really shelling out for the movie they’d pay for it to win more than just her awards. They’d probably pay for poor old BCoop to win SOMETHING, at least. This tie seems more like the CC trying to cover their bases- they’re known now for making the same or similar choices to the Oscars, and it feels to me like they were trying to have Glenn AND Gaga so that no matter who wins (because it’s widely thought it will be Glenn, but Gaga and Olivia are also featuring in the conversation, and they also awarded Olivia last night) they can point to their choices and say “Look! We were right!”

  16. Nikki says:

    Glenn Close is a super strong, attractive woman, and I’m actually angry her outfit does nothing to flatter her. It looks like a bad mother-of-the-bride ensemble you could find at a thrift shop. The style is extremely dated, the fabric looks puckered, and worst of all, though it might be a pretty color, the paleness washes her out. A vibrant turquoise gown would have made her look 10 years younger. An actor’s image is his or her livelihood; how come so many of them are so bad at knocking it out of the ball park?

  17. Jerusha says:

    Oscar night 1955, the supremely talented Judy Garland was in the hospital, having just given birth to her son. Everybody, and I mean everybody, knew she’d win for A Star is Born. Therefore, her hospital room was packed with tv cameras and reporters to catch the moment. The time comes, drumroll, Best Actress-Grace Kelly for The Country Girl. Doesn’t always work out as expected.

  18. mtam says:

    I think Gaga’s look just missed the mark with the styling. I think the hair and make-up is wrong. Hair would have prob worked better less curly and tucked back, and if she wasn’t gonna do a necklace, earrings that make more of a statement would have been nice. And her make-up should have been less harsh and more natural, her eyebrows are too dark, and that pink lip a shade doesn’t compliment the pink of her dress and is also too dark for the outfit. I think that’s why it seems she’s wearing a sheet that’s overwhelming her—because the look is disconnected.
