Red was a popular choice at the 27th Critics’ Choice Awards as celebrities embraced adrenaline dressing and opted for the fiery hue to instantly stand out. In fact, these stars put the “red” on the red carpet tonight, and they did it in unique, attention-grabbing ways. Selena Gomez’s Louis Vuitton cape gown made for a regal entrance, while Kathryn Newton’s plunging maxi would turn anyone’s head. Booksmart star Kaitlyn Dever got the same memo, which translated into a strapless, halter-neck dress with a seductive open back. Chrissy Metz’s version featured a princess dress with a strapless silhouette, complete with a full skirt adorned with a center seam of embroidered flowers. Similarly, Issa Rae’s ruffle dress by Carolina Herrera featured a pretty floral print and floral detailing at the neck.
Scarlet was all over the spring 2022 catwalks, so it’s no wonder we’re seeing more of it on our favorite stars. As tonight’s attendees understood, the hue is so daring that a bright red ensemble requires minimal accessories, but Rae took it a step further with a matching red clutch bag – and it worked. Pre-see the celebrities who have opted for the color of passion and get inspired to welcome them into your own wardrobe this spring.
