Charlize Theron in Givenchy at the Critics’ Choice Awards: overdone or stunning?

24th Annual Critic's Choice Awards Arrivals

I totally blanked on Charlize Theron at the Critics Choice Awards – I didn’t even notice what she was wearing, although she was in a lot of cutaway shots. As it turns out, she looked GREAT. This gown is Givenchy and she kind of overdressed for the CCAs, but why not, especially if the dress is so good? Mostly, I’m just relieved to see her in something other than Dior. She should mix it up more often. My least favorite thing? The eye makeup is terrible.

Amy Adams in Zac Posen – this actually looked beautiful in motion, but it doesn’t photograph that well? It looks so flat. But it was actually a great color and the dress had an interesting sleeve, and she looked amazing in it.

Julia Roberts’ Louis Vuitton look is so bad, I’m actually laughing. The half-Capri pants, the mullet skirt, the flat-ironed hair… what is going on with her? I feel like she lost some weight and got a little nip-tuck and now she’s trying to dress differently. She’s never been a fashion girl, but this is just weird.

Rachel Brosnahan in Carolina Herrera. I feel like this was the kind of vibe Julia wanted to have but it fell flat. Rachel looks amazing though.

Issa Rae in Aliétte by Jason Rembert. This is a lot of look for the Critics Choice Awards, you know? It’s also got a lingerie feel which… doesn’t fit the event.

    Eh? What is Julia Roberts’ wardrobe this awards season? Surely she has access to better clothes?

    I don’t get it. Either her stylist is doing her dirty, or she’s trying to set herself apart, and failing.

  2. Vexa says:

    Whoever did Issa’s eye make up needs to be fired. She normally looks so fresh, I hardly recognised her…

  3. grabbyhands says:

    What is the deal with Amy Adams and the matron gowns this year?

  4. Mego says:

    It would be stunning without the bare midriff part.

  5. Seraphina says:

    I love all these looks. Wish Amy could do better with wardrobe though, she could do something a bit more edgey. And I like what Julia is doing this awards season. It is almost like an: I dont care attitude. You do you Jules!

  6. Maya says:

    I don’t like any of these looks.

  7. MCV says:

    I need my girl Amy to win her deserved Oscar already D:

  8. Lightpurple says:

    When did conjunctivitis become a look?

  9. Sara says:

    Rachel is so stunning, as Mrs Maisel or out of period costume.

  10. meh says:

    Julia Roberts face hasnt settled yet

  11. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Theron’s so stunning I’m surprised she’s getting roles. Julia’s working her enthusiasm so hard her eye muscles must ache. Time for some coffee.

    • Nancy says:

      Isn’t she stunning?! She has the ability to transform herself into another person physically, i.e. Monster, Mad Max. She’s gorge. I have a friend from South Africa who actually resembles her. Beautiful. She leads the way in this group of women, as well. Charlize is the only beauty I see. Julia’s been gone for so long, she’s wearing an outfit from 2012 or thereabouts. Ha!

    • JanetDR says:

      Always beautiful! I am not a fan of the eye shadow color at all and I could live without the cut out, but overall it is a great look!
      Hey! Did the see through lace dresses finally go away?! Super!

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      Think she’s a brilliant actor but this dress felt thirsty and like spooled cassette tape innards

  12. Chaine says:

    I must have no fashion sense because to me Charlize’s dress is an awful cheap color and shine and makes her looks bottom-heavy and oddly short. I think her hair is lovely, though, and I like what I can see of her earrings…

  13. Giddy says:

    Julia’s outfit is terrible. The crotch on those pants would give Tim Gunn conniptions. With her money and access she should be wearing one of the best looks of the night. Maybe her stylist secretly hates her.

  14. billypilgrim says:

    Charlize stylist just dug some burned Jiffy Pop foil out if the trash, draped and twisted it around Charlize’s body and called it a day.

    Amy looks like a mother wife.
    At least, the dress could have been taken in more at the waist to give her some shape.

    Julia’s stylist, obviously, hoofed it down to David’s Bridal after Christmas sale and purchased this black white hideousness. I Love Lucy wore it better.

    Also Ms. Roberts hairs could use some
    Grand Canyon deep conditioner.

  15. lucy2 says:

    I like Charlize’s except for the color change. Rachel’s look is great.
    Issa is so gorgeous, but that is not the best styling for her.
    Julia’s outfit is bad.

  16. BuddyJack says:

    Loved them all except Ms. Rae who definitely looked like she shopped the lingerie store. While I agree the crotch on JRoberts needs some tweaking, the overall look was confident and strong, Ms. Theron is forever my girl crush, just stunning!

  17. Cal says:

    Jeez, Charlize! You deserve all the awards for your ability to look Ambiened to hell all the time. Unless it’s really severe Botox.

  18. LWT00 says:

    Issa is a beautiful woman with a great figure, so WTF is that dress? Even if I could get over the puffy (wrinkly) sleeves and cheap lace and beading… it doesn’t fit! It barely fits her hips, poor thing look so uncomfortable!

  19. Elisa says:

    Charlize Theron is so stunning and her face still looks quite natural. Love her.

  20. YesImHere says:

    Oh dear. Charlize is the only one of then who doesn’t look awful.

  21. DesertReal says:

    I love Issa, and the slit- her skin is glowy perfection and she should flaunt it. The bodice kinda throws me though.

    Julia Roberts looks like a villain from a bad rom-com.
