We’re fully in award season now and last night, on the heels of controversial Oscar noms, stars hit the red carpet once again. One might imagine a sort of dressing up ennui might occur especially with the fashion spotlight so heavily focused on February’s upcoming Oscars ceremony, yet impressively, I found the Critics’ Choice outfitting to be full of excitement, if not simply better than most of Sunday’s Globes looks.

The Hits

Let’s start with Miz Jennifer Aniston whose red, cleavage-baring suit is a totally new look for the generally-pretty-boring star formerly known as Rachel. Extra points for the sexy, boob-grazing jewelry.

Rumors have already surfaced about the great lengths Angelina Jolie and Jen went to avoid one another last night. In the competition of fashion, I’m going with Jen. Angie’s vintage-inspired silver dress is a predictable silhouette for the curvaceous bombshell and points are always granted for trying something new.

Julianne Moore is a whatever-color-carpet superhero. She rarely misses. This gown is no exception. Even in black, she’s never boring, and the cleavage baring panel is werking.

With much excitement, Keira Knightley gets a spot where she belongs–on the Hits list. While some might find this gown to be a little twee, what with its Peter Pan collar, I think it’s gorgeous and that train is just owning it. Her makeup look is flawless.

Leslie Mann is so freakin’ cute. This is a playful look thanks to the mix of shine and sheer, the rainbow clutch, the fun, fashion-forward shoes…what a cool mom.

Rosario Dawson‘s one-shouldered gown is a picture of sophistication. As is her regal little wave (below). Her makeup is also on fleek and her smile is radiant.

Weirdest compliment of the night goes to Rosario Dawson’s perky boob. It’s just really rocking it in that gown.

The Misses

Meh. Not my favorite look for Jessica Chastain whose red carpet style usually slays. But I’m feeling her pink lipstick. Bold and beautiful with her red hair.

Ugh. Why is the usually ultra chic Diane Kruger dressed like a tablecloth? On the one hand, this reminds me, in color palette, at least of an Isabel Marant print I loved, but it literally looks like a fancy tablecloth draped on Ms. Kruger’s frame the way I would wrap a towel in a gym locker room…Moving on.

Now we are reaching the part of this blue carpet analysis in which I am forced to express my disdain about dresses on stars I love. Case in point. I love Emily Blunt. She is a joy and she is, obviously, such a beauty. This dress, however, is feeling a little prommy to me.

File this under the same category. Felicity Jones: high on my girl crush list. This Wednesday Addams Halloween costume? Not so much.

First and foremost, congratulations Jenny Slate. Obvious Child was my perhaps my favorite movie of the whole year and I am personally thrilled to see it recognized. This belted dress situation though! I can just picture myself trying things on only to have my mom tug at my general crotch area: “Doesn’t it bother you how it’s pulling there!?” Yes, yes it does.

This is going below Jenny for a reason. If you follow Ms. Slate on Instagram, then you might already know that the woman is obsessed with turtlenecks. I would have loved to see her real life style go all blue carpet for a hot minute.

Rosamund Pike, however, is a. definitely a fan of white dresses and b. rocking the mock neck. Hit or miss? Can’t decide.

Really not WILD (see what I did there) about this ultra-prom Jessica McClintock x Hot Topic gown on Reese Witherspoon. No, no, no.
