2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards: Top Trends

Our favorite part about awards shows is that we get to see dozens of hot trends on dozens of celebrities at one time. Such was the case at the 2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, where sheer fabric frocks carried over their dominance from 2010 and “mullet dresses” had their official coming-out party. Check out the other statement-making looks we loved.

SHEER DELIGHT: Short and sheer was the name of the game as actress Eva Mendes rocked an allover see-through Valentino number. Meanwhile, Elle Fanning’s Valentino dress and Keri Hilson’s black frock featured just hints of mesh.

MULLET DRESSES: It was business in the front, and party in the back for Mila Kunis in Nina Ricci, Michelle Williams in Balenciaga, and Khloe Kardashian in an animal print gown.

PEACHY KEEN: Flesh tone dresses full of embellishments, including glitter and ruffles, had a strong showing. We loved Jennifer Lawrence’s L’Wren Scott pencil dress, Hailee Steinfeld’s Marchesa cocktail dress and Elle Fanning’s flippy Valentino dress.

STRAPLESS SWEETHEARTS: With or without jewelry, Amber Rose, Sofia Vergara, and Mandy Moore slipped into sexy collarbone-revealing gowns for the red carpet. Amber’s mermaid dress and Sofia’s metallic Temperley London showed off their figures, too, while Mandy’s Monique Lhuillier just skimmed over her curves.
