Now that the worst-dressed list is out of the way, time to rejoice in our happy, best-dressed roll-call from yesterday’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. It’s a small list, but packed with heaps of flavor. To begin with, we’re clapping our hands with joy at Anne Hathaway‘s minimal, shimmery, Oscar de la Renta gown. That smile, the cropped hair and the perfectly creamy makeup are the right accompaniments proving that sometimes, less is definitely more. Another absolute favorite is Marion Cotillard‘s frothy, applique Zuhair Murad Couture dress that is girly, fun and hit that line between playful and fashion forward. The Jimmy Choo “Tahi” heels have us squeeing too. Marion’s got serious style chops! Jennifer Lawrence‘s Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 gown brought grown-up glamor and drama to the carpet. The draping, the dual-fabric and the train are fantastic features and don’t overwhelm her, and the Chopard jewels, Jimmy Choo ‘Vamp’ sandals and a Roger Vivier clutch add the right amount of hardware. Naomi Watts was sexy as hell in a black strapless Emilio Pucci Resort 2013 gown with a sheer key-hole with turquoise Irene Neuwirth jewels and a silver Edie Parker clutch that provided the right hits of color and metal. Jaime King gave a Naomi a run for her sexy money in a strappy Jason Wu Pre-Fall ’13 semi-sheer gown with flashes of gold accessories and a black belt cinching her tiny waist. The side-swept curls and red lips are happily noted, as well. Rounding off the list is a surprise entrant — Helen Hunt. We bow down to her in that red Philip Armstrong Atelier column gown with those crystal and lace panelled cut-outs. Perfectly styled, and impeccably turned out with a hit of gold accessories — gold Rene Caovilla sandals, Martin Katz jewelry and a Lauren Merkin ‘Lucca’ clutch.
