Awards season is officially underway! I am so excited! It’s always so much fun to watch my favorite stars be recognized for their work.
This last Sunday, The Critics’ Choice Awards were held and they brought together some of the biggest names in television and movies. Members of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the Broadcast Television Journalists Association voted on 2018’s best movies and television shows. Stars present at the event included Bradley Cooper, Julia Roberts, and Amy Adams, plus many more!
While we all want to see which star will win each award, half the fun of awards season is observing the fabulous fashion. This year, the blue carpet was filled with embellished gowns, long-sleeved silhouettes, and even a few pantsuits.
Here are a few of my favorite looks from Sunday night and some affordable options to try replicating them for your next formal event or evening out:
Lady Gaga’s Elegant Neutral Gown
Lady Gaga had an amazing night! She took home the award for best song for her part in “Shallow” from “A Star is Born.” (Very well deserved, in my personal opinion.) Then she went on to tie with Glenn Close for best actress in a motion picture.
True to form, Gaga absolutely killed it on the blue carpet! She wore a neutral colored Calvin Klein gown that flowed to the ground. She looked very elegant and chic.
Here are some great options for a flowy, formal look just like Lady Gaga’s. You can stick to the neutral colors for a chic look like hers or try one of these brighter dresses to add your own flare to the simple style.
Emily Blunt’s Statement Neckline
Emily Blunt was nominated for best actress and best actress in a comedy for her role in “Mary Poppins Returns.”
Emily wore a white, floor-length Prada gown with embellished straps. She was accompanied by her hubby John Krasinski.
Emily’s dress had a beautiful, attention-grabbing neckline just like these four affordable options do. The straps on these dresses will add a little something extra to your look and bring everyone’s focus up to your beautiful face.
Gemma Chan’s Fabulous Florals
Gemma Chan, most recently seen in “Crazy Rich Asians”, rocked the carpet in this stunning number. She wore a layered, floral print gown by Jason Wu.
Here are a few dresses that have similar vibrant colors and fun layers to what Gemma’s has. You can never go wrong with a pretty floral print, so adding a little ruffle can only make your look that much more fun! Give one of these beautiful dresses a try.
Julia Roberts’ Killer Pantsuit
Julia Roberts was nominated for best actress in a drama series for her role in “Homecoming.” She was one of the standouts on the blue carpet wearing a Louis Vuitton pantsuit!
If you are feeling like changing up your formal look, try a sophisticated pantsuit like Julia’s! You will have all the mobility and comfort that pants can offer without compromising on style. These options are super sleek and they won’t break the bank!
