Celebrities always scrub up and put their Sunday best on for this one, don’t they? The National Board Of Review Awards Gala is always the first big awards red carpet of the year and seems to be for the “serious” movies and actors. Therefore, the fashion follows suit. Nothing too frippery here. Emily Blunt got it perfectly right with her nude-blush Emilio Pucci dress with tiny little cut-outs, bronze Stuart Weitzman shoes and minimal and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry. Amanda Seyfried wore a panelled onion and metallic Bottega Veneta dress, nipped in at the waist, with lace-up Alexandre Birman heels and pretty Norman Silverman earrings. Anne Hathaway‘s black luxe, androgynous tapered Hedi Slimane tuxedo was also right on the money and amazingly chic paired with her cropped hair.
Thank you, Bradley Cooper for wearing such an elegant Gucci suit, but damn, you need a haircut. Jessica Chastain, who has been doing rather well sartorially lately, picked a black Alexander McQueen dress with a floral metallic collar, bronze Charlotte Olympia shoes and a matching Aurelie Bidermann cuff. And then there was Ben Affleck, who sorely needed a shave, but who worked it out in a black tailored suit.
James Bond Daniel Craig, drool! Don’t know what he’s wearing. Actually, we do — it’s a Brunello Cucinelli suit, but we don’t care. He’s far too hot to judge. We are not worthy. Angela Bassett wore a fluid, metallic grey strapless grown which looked beautiful on her, and rounding up our list is John Krasinski in Calvin Klein. See what we mean? Super classy-town.
