There are many things to love about awards season, particularly for the pop-culture junkies and celebrity obsessed. There are fancy parties, pretty people, glitz, glamour, etc., with most of those things revolving around fashion.
At Friday night's (January 14) Critics' Choice Movie Awards, there were plenty of fancy threads to appreciate — particularly for the few attendees who sported uniquely colored ensembles. Hailee Steinfeld's peaches-and-cream Marchesa and Kim Kardashian's form-fitting, fire-engine-red Vera Wang gown were prime examples. Not to mention Natalie Portman's white number with black trim. But for the few splashes of color, there were far more folks sporting variations on one shade: black.
Naturally, we expect to see most of the men in black, since they typically sport tuxedos, but plenty of ladies went with a darker wardrobe as well. Prime examples: Best Supporting Actress nominee Mila Kunis wore a short, black Nina Ricci; Eva Mendes rocked a flowy-yet-saucy black mini-dress embellished with a large bow; Nicole Kidman chose a long, drapey black number; and Keri Hilson selected a sparkly-bustier, silky black ensemble. And the list doesn't end there: Funnywomen Joan Rivers and Sarah Silverman also joined the raven-adorned ranks.
But everyone knows a good red carpet isn't just about the ladies; we'd be remiss if we didn't recognize a few gentlemen who stood out in the crowd. Justin Bieber looked suave, even though he attempted to fool everyone by wearing framed glasses and a mustache. The always-dapper John Legend wore a charcoal Gucci suit, and "The Town" star Jeremy Renner and "Chuck"/"Tangled" actor Zachary Levi also got noticed.
