Julia Roberts Gleams in Sequined Sunburst Schiaparelli Dress and Platforms at Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet 2023

Julia Roberts brought modern elegance with a sparkly twist to the 2023 Critics’ Choice Awards. The actress is nominated this evening for Best Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Made for Television for her leading role in Starz’ historical drama “Gaslit.”

While hitting the red carpet at Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles, Roberts posed in a streamlined black gown — a custom design from Schiaparelli. Styled by Elizabeth Stewart, her sharp Daniel Roseberry-designed piece featured a faintly flared hem and long sleeves. Giving the piece a burst of elegance were thin gold degradé embellishments embroidered on its cuffs and neckline, inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli’s original 1938 Apollo of Versailles cape. Small metallic earrings finished Roberts’ ensemble.

When it came to footwear, Roberts’ dress was complemented with a set of hidden platform sandals from Sole Bliss. Though her shoes were covered by her gown’s long hem, the “Ticket to Paradise” actress‘ shoes of choice were the British brand’s $325 Remy style — a black suede and snake-embossed leather pair with thick platform soles and 5-inch block heels. The soaring set, which is currently available for pre-order on the label’s website, gave Roberts a sharp height boost while providing a comfortable, neutral base to her elegant ensemble.
