Last night, some of television’s biggest names put on their formal best to celebrate the cream of the small-screen crop at this year’s Critics’ Choice Awards. Here are standout looks from some of our’s favorites—and a peek at promising numbers from up-and-comers.
Ever since Empire became a megahit, it’s been absolutely no surprise when Taraji P. Henson walks the red carpet looking phenomenal in a black Alexander Wang—a new look from the designer who showed evening wear for the first time on his fall 2015 runway.
Anna Faris picked a simple, pale pink high-neck Zac Posen gown raised slightly in the front, showing off her matching heels.
Here’s hoping that Constance Wu walks a lot more red carpets in the near future (for her star turn on hit series Fresh Off the Boat). She nailed a romantic, feminine look in a one-shoulder floral gown by New York City-based designer Cristina Ottaviano.
Shiri Appleby’s light-as-air Yanina Couture gown stood out thanks to the graphic chevron design that covered the lower half. Her shoes are by Aldo.
Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez looked ladylike in tea-length Reem Acra. Sweet retro touches that finished the look included pearl earrings, ankle-strap platforms, and a hard clutch from Edie Parker.
Angie Harmon embraced this season’s trending off-the-shoulder look, picking a boldly printed dress from Christian Siriano that showed off her upper body beautifully. She carried a clutch by Edie Parker.
Maggie Gyllenhaal’s strapless beauty from Alexander McQueen would have looked perfect on her regardless of color, but by opting for a soft rose-petal print instead of a solid, she stood out even more.
