21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards Wrap-up

Last night the  21st Annual Critics' Choice Awards took place at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. To see all off the blue carpet looks, click HERE and continue below for the wrap-up.

Emmy Rossum wore a CHRISTIAN DIOR black dress that featured a split detail with a silver sequin panel. Beauty wise, she went with a gold shimmer eye which was offset with a soft pink lip and a slick side parted ponytail. Silver accessories completed her great. 

Helen Mirren wore a white & black floral & lace DOLCE & GABBANA long sleeve chiffon pleated v-neck gown which she accessorized with a silver jewelry and a white fur embellished clutch. A colored lip and her signature short hairdo finished up her look. 

Aya Cash ditched the idea of wearing a dress for a black SANDRO satin lapel tuxedo with a black velvet bow tie. For a touch of color, she accessorized with small emerald drop earrings. I like Aya's look which was topped off with side parted curls, a black clutch & black & gold toe cap pumps.

Joanne Froggatt wore the ROLAND MOURET 'Henderson' petrol blue raffia organza floor length shimmery gown. Joanne's beauty look helped to elevate the elegant appeal of her look. A statement ring & earrings and a silver clutch completed her look. 

Abigail Spencer wore a J. MENDEL SPRING 2016 soft pint halter dress with a black bandeau underneath and cascading ruffle side panels with a split detail. TAMARA MELLON sandals, a LEE SAVAGE clutch, drop earrings and a complimentary up-do completed her look. 

Tracee Ellis Ross wore an RANDI RAHM SPRING 2016 black long dress with embellished short sleeves and a open back. Her NEIL LANE jewelry and sleeves is what kept her look interesting. An RAUWOLF clutch, SOPHIA WEBSTER heels and a high bun completed her look. 

Helen McCory wore a green & black trim long sleeve lace dress which she styled with a gold clutch, black sandals and KWIAT earrings. 

Laura Haddock wore a lavender EMILIA WICKSTEAD FALL 2015 long sleeve midi dress with two patch pockets. This is a fall dress with a spring tone and I like it. Also love the contrasting magenta lip which popped nicely against her look. LOUBOUTIN nude T-strap pumps, MESSIKA & MARIA BLACK jewelry and a sculpted up-do completed her look.  

Jennifer Jason Leigh wore a black & white off-the-shoulder ROLAND MOURET long dress. This may not be a wow moment but it's better than her previous several looks. 

Kate Beckinsale wore a MONIQUE LHUILLIER beaded sheer panel gown which she styled with a box clutch and GIUSEPPE ZANOTTI heels. One thing about Kate er hairstyles are so predictable. 

Melissa McCarthy wore a tonal green printed long sleeve pleated dress with an contrasting olive drape panel neckline. I like Melissa's look but I wish the hair was off-the-shoulder and that olive draped panel wasn't there. 

Shiri Appleby wore a rust colored silk-chiffon layered floor length dress with spaghetti straps and a draped v-neck bodice. The bodice looks a tad off but I like the color. 

Constance Zimmer wore a TRACY REESE RESORT 2016 nude & black asymmetrical stripe flare dress styled with a KOTUR clutch and matching nude LORI BLU pumps. A colored lip and a ponytail with bangs completed her look. 

Carly Chaikin wore a CHLOE FALL 2015 sheer long sleeve ruffled pleated v-neck dress. Carly's dress was featured on the runway without a belt but thankfully she added a contrasting velvet sash.   

Leslie Mann wore a MONIQUE LHUILLIER strapless ombre layered tulle dress styled with a black  JIMMY CHOO clutch and LOUBOUTIN T-strap pumps. This is a better look than her Globes look. A colored lip and a ponytail completed her look. 

Constance Wu wore a PETER LANGNER COUTURE light blue v-neck silk-chiffon gown with a cape sleeve detail. A crown braid, a colored lip, a pink clutch and statement rings completed her look. 

America Ferrera wore a INGIE PARIS cocktail dress styled with IRENE NEUWIRTH jewelry, BRIAN ATWOOD platform sandals and a pink clutch. A color lip would have been an nice addition.  

Marisa Tomei wore a black, red & white lace & floral embroidered ZUHAIR MURAD SPRING 2016 dress. The shoes are uninspiring but this feels like it's more suited for someone like Hailee Seinfeld or Chloe Moretz. 

Rosie Huntington-Whitely wore a SAINT LAURENT SPRING 2016 black center front split dress with an asymmetrical neckline. A slick high bun and silver sandals completed her look. 

Abbey Lee wore a BALMAIN SPRING 2016 black long sleeve mesh beaded & ruffled belted dress.  While many probably cannot, I actually thought Abbey pulled this off nicely. A slick high ponytail and hoop earrings completed her look. 

Zoe Kravitz rarely goes for color on the carpet but on this occasion she opted for a CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2013 COUTURE vibrant red raffia organza peplum top and red trousers. SOPHIA WEBSTER sandals and DIOR fine jewelry completed her look. 

Courtney Eaton wore a black leather studded & lace VALENTINO SPRING 2016 pleated midi dress with black shorts for coverage underneath. Gold sandals and a side swept ponytail completed her look. 

Riley Keough wore a CHRISTIAN DIOR SPRING 2014 COUTURE black beaded cut-out halter jumpsuit styled with black heels. 

Rachel Bloom wore an all black look which featured a ALEXANDER MCQUEEN one-shoulder jumpsuit, an TLYER ALEXANDER clutch and KURT GEIGER sandals. She looks great but her Globes green number is more memorable. 

Niecy Nash wore a pink GUARI & NAINIKA one-shoulder gown styled with an SWAROVSKI clutch and BAVNA jewelry. We rarely see Niecy in color like this, glad she took the leap. 

Liv Tyler concealed her baby bump in a CUSHNIE ET OCHS FALL 2015 black crop top layered dress with a side front split. The dress hit the runway in red which I wish she wore but I guess she was really trying to cover up the bump. 

Lily Rabe showed off her midriff wearing a MARC BOWER black sequin halter dress with a cut-out waist. A pop of color came via her emerald earrings. 

Yael Grobglas wore a BLACK HALO EVE BY LAUREL BERMAN pink dress and to ensure that she doesn't get washed out, she added a bold rd lip to her look. BULGARI jewelry completed her look. 

Shanice Williams of 'The Wiz' live, wore a ALICE + OLIVIA FALL 2015 strapless crystal embellished jumpsuit with black pants. If this looks familiar, that's because we have seen it on Alicia Keys, Beth Behrs & Kerry Washington

Bryce Dallas Howard wore a PIERRE BALMAIN black three-quarter sleeve embellished dress styled with black accessories. Love her beauty look here & that's all. 

Hayden Panettiere had some cleavage on display wearing a peach MARIA LUCIA HOHAN pleated chiffon later dress. Her look feels a bit too one note. 

Kathryn Hahn wore a yellow v-neck ZAC POSEN dress with a short train detail. To keep her look interesting, she went with a dark red lip. Gold accessories and her signature side swept hairstyle completed her look.  

Amy Schumer once again wore a CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION that we have probably seen her in before.

Mayim Bialik wore a green long sleeve pleated chiffon dress. I don't understand why she insist on wearing matronly unflattering pieces.

Regina King wore a KRIKOR JABOTIAN beaded crop top and white embroidered mullet skirt. I want to like this look but skirt feels so tween like. I would have loved to see her in a longer, column skirt. 

Who was your best/worst dressed at the event?
