When it comes to fashion, pretty much everyone has an opinion, and at the Critics Choice Awards, differences in perspective usually translate into memorable style moments. Unlike the Academy Awards, where allusions to old Hollywood prevail, or the Grammys, which are an opportunity to show off the most outré glamour, the CCAs are not defined by a single aesthetic address. Entertainment superstars tend to follow their whims at these prestigious awards ceremonies, and that’s exactly what they did at this year’s show. The looks of the starry parterre that walked the red carpet of the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles on March 13 spoke of the personality of the wearer, also letting out that sense of fun that permeated the entire event.

Definitely impossible to miss Christian Siriano’s voluminous neon pink ballgown chosen by comedian and TV host Nicole Byer, who co-hosted the event with actor Taye Diggs…in swishing taffeta.
The most beautiful couple of the soirée? We would be tempted to crown the one composed by Jodie Turner-Smith and Joshua Jackson. Their harmony (the two have been married for a couple of years) was also perceptible on the red carpet, especially when he, nominated for best lead actor in a miniseries for his performance in Dr. Death, he stepped aside to leave the scene to his wife, statuesque in the aquamarine dress by Gucci, nonetheless continuing to stare at her raptly.
