The 25th annual Critics’ Choice Awards, held last night in Los Angeles, was the second big event of 2020 award season, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. Traditionally less formal than the upcoming Oscars, the blue carpet was a sea of color as Hollywood’s hottest stars stepped out in glamorous gowns, gilded numbers, and boundary-pushing looks (hello, Zendaya!).
Kristen Bell went with notice-me neon, Awkwafina wore sunny yellow, Olivia Wilde stunned in red, and Billy Porter opted for mint green.
And while we love a classic black dress, if this is any indication of how this year’s awards season fashion is developing, well, then we’re excited to see what these stars do next. In the meantime, keep scrolling for more of our favorite looks from the 2020 Critics’ Choice Awards.
