Sometimes, not even Prada or Rodarte can save a red carpet. Case in point: last night’s Critics Choice Awards, which featured a host of A-list style stars and celebs wearing no shortage of high-wattage designer duds on the dreariest, most shoddily constructed grey carpet we’ve ever seen.
Step and repeat set up aside, things were not good. Diane Kruger bombed in an ill-fitting Prada gown while Emma Stone looked like she was swimming in her green and navy Jason Wu creation. Elle Fanning looked fun and fresh in Rodarte but it wasn’t exactly what we’d call a home run. Fellow tween-er Chloe Moretz looked positively and inexplicably morbid in black Chanel.
Kirsten Dunst, Evan Rachel Wood, and Charlize Theron all looked beautiful but, yep, boring in black gowns by Christian Dior, Valentino, and Azzedine Alaia, respectively, which is to say: thank goodness for Michelle Williams and Tilda Swinton, whose black and white ensembles by Chanel and YSL were by far and away the best of the night.
And note to VH1, next time someone pitches the idea of hanging some grey fabric from a curtain rod and calling it a red carpet, say no.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
