Critics’ Choice Awards Best Dressed: Emma Stone, Nicole Kidman, Janelle Monae and More

Film and TV stars were honored for their outstanding performances today at the Critics’ Choice Awards, but their style statements deserve some recognition, too.

The 22nd annual ceremony, held in Santa Monica, Calif., attracted the entertainment industry’s heavy hitters donning sleek head-to-toe looks.

Nicole Kidman led the pack in glamorous form — revealing a lot of leg in an off-the-shoulder gown that featured a high slit at the center. The Oscar winner complemented the number with a minimalist black sandal by Gianvito Rossi. But where she truly sparkled was with her accessories, which included large diamond rings, a watch, dangling earrings adorned with pearls, and a brooch pinned on the shoulder.

Singer-turned-actress Janelle Monae never plays it safe with her outfits, and the award show was no exception. The “Hidden Figures” star, who was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress film category, rocked a long-sleeve checkerboard-patterned gown with gold platform sandals. She continued the gold and black color palette with her accessories, which included a clutch, jewelry and a choker.

Meanwhile, some stars strayed from a mostly black palette and embraced color, including “Manchester by the Sea” actress Anna Baryshnikov, who had on a flirty low-cut cocktail dress that matched her heels. The dress incorporated red, white and blue round studs that were also featured on her sandals.
