While the award season is off to a good start, the hippest Hollywood stylists are undoubtedly thrown into the ground to meet the demand for elegant red carpet ensembles – and it seems that the pressure for some is too much to handle.
At least if it looks on the red carpet of the Critics & # 39; Choice Awards; The A-list event, which honors the best and brightest in film and television, saw a multitude of stars missing the fashion mark, with dozens of guests making awful fashion faux pas, from a casual flash of shapewear to over-the-top patterns and prints that were almost painful to watch.
The Critics & Choice Awards take place just one week after the Golden Globes and leave little time for real rest and relaxation – but it leaves at least a few days for some style reflection, an opportunity that some apparently do not use made.
Birthday girl: Nina Dobrev might be forgiven for choosing such a matt lace dress – which looked like an old costume from her hit series The Vampire Diaries – given that she was busy celebrating her 30th at a festival scene party hours earlier
Glitterbom: actress and nominated Dina Shihabi's sparkling dress was unbelievably over-the-top and needed almost no stratification or shimmer to stand out from the crowd
Japanese horror: without the pink curtain tassels, Carrie Keagan's dress would have been elegant and glamorous
Keep warm? Janet Mock seemed to have been wrapped in aluminum foil when she made her arrival on the red carpet
Birthday girl Nina Dobrev may be forgiven for her less than stellar red carpet style, given that she had been celebrating her 30th on a festival theme & # 39; Ninachella & # 39; party, a few hours before the awards started.
Unfortunately she did not see the beauty of the ball when she arrived at the red carpet during the Critics & Choice Awards. She wore a rather boring dress with red lace that did not resemble the historical costumes she wore during the CW show The Vampire Diaries.
Her hair also looked a bit faint, because it had been incorporated in a rather messy updo that would have been better suited for her Coachella-inspired birthday event than a red carpet.
Actress Olivia Munn, 38, was another unusual feature on the worst-dressed list at this year's awards ceremony, with what looked like a flamenco-themed beach dress that looked most out of place at a stunning celebrity event.
The 29-year-old nominee Dina Shihabi went way too far with her dress, which contained so many layers of shiny material that it did not look like a mermaid or Rainbow Fish costume that was picked up at a party store on the way to the award show. .
All wrong in white: both Allison Janney (left) and Indya Moore (right) were overshadowed by the immense white matter from which their ensembles were composed, making them both seem like they were wearing battered sheets
Too far from the frills: Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boynton looked like he was wearing a dress made from her grandmother's tea cozy thanks to the excessive use of fringes – and clashing girlish bow
Lady in red: Annie Potts, a nominee for Supporting Actress in a Comedy series, wore a lively crimson dress that unfortunately saw different sizes that were too big for her
More is less! Kirby Howell-Baptiste was overwhelmed by the excess, light-blue textiles that formed her dress
Green means … no: the bright jumpsuit of Miss J looked as if it might have been better suited for an afternoon at the beach instead of a glamorous red carpet, while the dotted line of Judith Light looked a bit like a clown costume
Carrie Keagan, 38, just missed the figure with her appearance – which to some extent was beautiful and elegant. That point was the bizarre pink tassels that hung from her sleeves and dangled beneath her hands, and it seemed that they were pulled straight out of curtains at a nearby hotel.
Allison Janney, 59, and Indya Moore, 24, coordinated their fashion faux pas, with both women choosing to wear huge white ensembles that totally flooded their lists, and looked more like they wore intricately packed sheets on the red carpet.
The British Bohemian Rhapsody star Lucy Boynton, 24, has to go a little Radio go go Radio goo goo when she chose her ensemble, which seemed to be modeled on a retro tea cozy.
The stark gray frills caused her a great deal and were made even worse by the clashing pink bow tied around her waist – perhaps in an attempt to add a feminine touch to the otherwise boring dress.
Unfortunately, the dress needed more than a simple bow to save him from the depths of the worst-dressed list.
Too far: the print on Judy Greer's dress seemed more suitable for a decorative wall than a red carpet
Oh dear: not only was the Terri Seymour dress a rather unflattering shape, it also revealed what her shapewear turned out to be thanks to the incredibly high crack in the fabric
Are you under? Sandra Oh & # 39; s dress and general beauty was amazing, but her bangs seemed a little too long for her to see really well
A rare fashion fails: the normally-stylish Timothy Chalamet is another star that fell prey to an unattractive print, which became even more awkward thanks to the addition of metal-trimmed sneakers
Careful! Billy Porter threatened to trip over the ridiculously large orange sash that completed his very shiny suit
The dress of actress Annie Potts could have been quite brilliant, were it not that the 66-year-old star seemed to have chosen a design that had different sizes too big for her. The dress seemed too long and sadly dropped around her middle section, which did little to create a silhouette that had a flattering character.
Meanwhile, the 31-year-old Kirby Howell-Baptiste drowned her figure in a high-cut light blue dress, which looked as if several layers of material were wrapped around her body before being sent through the carpet. Although the color of the dress did not appeal to her at all, the shape was unfortunately less than blinding.
There were many stars that also chose to step away from the traditional gown at the Critics & Choice Awards, with winning pant-focused looks seen by, for example, Julia Roberts and Claire Foy.
Judith Light, 69, and Our Lady J, 33, did not succeed in drawing so much aplomb of the style – on the contrary.
While musician Our Lady J arrived in a rather bright green jumpsuit that suited the beach better than a red carpet, Judith looked like she had borrowed some fabric from a clown costume to form her polka dot number.
Pajama party? Rapper Boots Riley (right) and his guest looked like they had climbed out of bed just before the event
Too bright? It is unclear whether Darren Criss was sensitive to light, or whether he wore yellow glasses to make a bold style statement, but a few with the rather rumpled suit, they did not make for the best red carpet look
Whoops: the dress by Patricia Arquette did not flatter her figure at all, but the material looked as if the dye had run in the wash, while the diamond-colored clutch seemed stickier than elegant
Not-so-brave dudes: Both Ken Jeong (left) and Lakeith Stanfield (right) missed the mark in their colors; The pants from Ken looked different sizes too big and did little to get rid of a showy jacket, while the checkered outfit from Lakeith was a bit of a thorn in the eye
