This year’s Critics’ Choice Awards were full of ups like the winners list, and downs, like the multiple fashion faux pas seen on the red carpet. Here are some of the best and worst dressed stars at the 21st Annual Critics’ Choice Awards.

Check out all the looks on the PopSugar Gallery.


Rachel McAdams- Mean Girls icon Rachel McAdams wore a floor-length, burgundy gown cinched at the waist made by Elie Saab. Her jewelry was from Garziela Gems. Her dress brought out an essence of sex appeal and danger. She showed skin while covering the body from the bust down. It’s like seeing through blinds, but not being in the room.

Kirsten Dunst- The Fargo star wore a Chanel gold sequined dress, layered into big sectioned ripples ending at her ankles, and Fred Leighton jewels. Her choice of simple red lipstick and natural makeup was poetic as she left her signature in this dress.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley- Rosie was the Jessica Rabbit of our time in a black gown with a slit running up her left thigh. Her dress was so simple and striking, giving off the right amount of skin and structured to make her look exposed, but her striking demeanor and makeup made her look invincible.

Hayden Panettiere- Panettiere was glowing in a floor-length, pastel pink gown, with ribbons of fabric wrapping around her bust and back. The dress was made by Maria Lucia Hohan, and it was perfectly tailored to her body, accentuating every last curve. In short, Panettiere was positively radiant.



Jennifer Aniston- The longtime A-list actress’ dress was disappointing, to say the least. She was clad in a periwinkle blue gown, with various ruffles covering her. Although the color of dress went well with her sun-kissed skin, the slit running down the front of the dress seems misplaced, and made the whole look a little frumpy.

Maura Tierney- The ER actress looked like she slept in her outfit. She wore a no-sleeve black crop top, tucked into a dark green pleated skirt. In retrospect, the outfit should’ve been beautiful. However, her top seemed a couple sizes too big, and the skirt was extremely wrinkled, giving her a lazy look.

Abbey Lee- Lee looked a bit caged in, wearing a cutaway number by Balmain. She showed plenty of skin, with criss-crossing pieces of fabric just barely keeping her dress from being R-rated. The dress was cinched at the waist with a very thick black belt, and the bottom of her dress was layered with multiple sheets of pleated fabric. It’s safe to say Abbey Lee was a little too much to handle.
