Ladies: 2009 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet

January 9th, 2009 // 1 Comment

For the most part, everyone looked really gorgeous at the Critics Choice Awards. These days, everyone’s so scared of looking bad on the red carper (with rare but delicious exceptions, of course) that most just play it safe. But we noticed a few glitches.

Elizabeth Banks wore a bold, yellow-gold dress that was fun, if not a bit of a fashion challenge but here’s to trying soemthing different. But it’s really her giant hair we’re not totally sold on. It’s a little too enormous for our liking. But she is closer to God that way.

Sarah Silverman showed off her red Converse high-tops under a black evening gown. I totally understand where she’s coming from, but all I know is that if I pulled that stunt as a woman almost in her thirties, my mother would still fly out here and have my ass. She wouldn’t care how many awards I’d won.

But nobody did anything too crazy. Angela Bassett looked gorgeous–I especially liked her hair. Kristen Bell was cute too, in her little silver frock. That’s a tough look to pull off, but since she’s built like Tinkerbell, she works it.

Featured in the gallery: Kristen Bell, Elizabeth Banks, Diane Lane, Laura Dern,  Sarah Silverman, Taraji P. Henson, Dakota Fanning, Viola Davis, Amanda Bynes, Virgina Madsen, Sarah Jane Morris, Angela Bassett, Sally Hawkins and Kristin Scott Thomas. The Angelina Jolie pics are here.
