Red, Black and White Dominates: 2024 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet

Hey fabulous souls! Let’s talk about the dazzling fashion extravaganza that unfolded at the Critics’ Choice Awards 2024. With the Golden Globes and the Governors Awards in our rearview, Hollywood rolled out another glamorous red carpet event in Santa Monica, celebrating the crème de la crème of film and television. Winners on the night included Emma Stone for Poor Things, Sarah Snook for Succession and Elizabeth Debicki for The Crown.

While perhaps a tad more low-key compared to the Globes and Oscars, the Critics’ Choice Awards never fail to deliver a spectacle of red-carpet drama. This year, the fashion scene was ablaze with vibrant hues of red, black, and white, bringing a refreshing twist to the awards season style narrative. Without further ado, let’s dive into my top 10 favorite looks from the evening (in no particular order).
