5 Best Dressed from the 2016 Critics Choice Awards

With the Golden Globes, SAGs, Grammys and Academy Awards in a one and a half month span, it's easy for the Critics Choice Awards to fall under the radar. But, between Jacob Tremblay's adorable acceptance speech for his "Best Young Actor" win to T.J. Miller's opening monologue with dancing critic puppets, last night's ceremony was not to be missed. And in an unforeseen turn of events, the fashion wasn't half bad either -- or at least better than this year's Golden Globes. Read on for the five best looks from the 2016 Critics Choice Awards.

Alicia Vikander in Mary Katrantzou: With several magazine covers, award nominations and best dressed nods, it's no secret that Vikander is Hollywood's new it girl. Fortunately, the Ex-Machina and The Danish Girl star did not disappoint. This look is equal parts sophisticated and spunky: the modest silhouette and high neckline is juxtaposed with a very quirky pattern that has London designer Mary Katrantzou's name all over it. The minimal accessories and coiffed updo allowed this dress to be celebrated instead of turning into an inevitable victim of over-styling. And, as an ideal finishing touch, a soft rose pout subtly picks up the red in the pattern.
Kirsten Dunst in Chanel Haute Couture: Whether you're an Amazonian model or a mere mortal, tiered dresses tend to be dicey: simply one extra tier or superfluous fabric can have anyone looking like a '90s Barbie birthday cake or cartoon princess. But here, dressed in Chanel Haute Couture, Dunst found a happy medium. Not only are the sparse tiers thick enough to fall into an overtly frilly stereotype, they are positioned just right to flatter her figure. Truth be told, if the middle tier were placed any lower, she would've looked especially hippy instead of blessed with a subtle pear-shape. And with that much sparkle, this ivory dress was smartly accessorized with a dainty bracelet and ladylike satin shoes. Plus, the red lip paired with the dress's neutral shade gave this cool look a classic, old Hollywood twist.
Rachel McAdams in Elie Saab: As talented as the French designer is, it's easy to think that he's a bit of a one note. After all, how many sparkly, full-skirt frocks can you see by the same designer before it becomes redundant? This slim, see-through number is singing a completely different tune. And who better to wear such an edgy, youthful, yet still polished, getup than McAdams? From the lack of accessories, to the wavy lob to the striking berry lip, the whole look was executed immaculately. Just a week ago, McAdams was cascading down the Golden Globes red carpet in a ho-hum, floral frock by Lanvin, that suggested she's way older than 37 years-old. Both age and event appropriate, the former Regina George makes us all idolize her once again.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane: She's one of those people who could wear a burlap sack -- or bed sheet as she seemingly did in Mad Max: Fury Road -- and have all onlookers green with envy. But, in such a cool dress as this Saint Laurent number, she's an automatic best dressed. What makes this look so cool is the unconventional neckline. Sure, everyone ooohs and aaahs at a symmetrical, plunging v-neck, but there's something so refreshing about this uneven dip. And combined with the high-slit, spaghetti straps and bare back, this dress totally pays homage to the '90s supers. Obsessed.
Krysten Ritter in Zuhair Murad: Breaking Bad, Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23, and Jessica Jones. Let's face it: Ritter is more known for her ability to transform into a slew of different characters than her red carpet style. But a vision in a maroon Zuhair Murad gown, this instance is definitely worth mentioning. It's easy for any awards show getup to have some major sparkle overload, but this dress only boasts sparkles right around the torso, making the eye go directly to Ritter's narrow waist. Not to mention the proper, pleated skirt was balanced with a sultry deep block neckline, providing an ideal mix of sultry and sophisticated.  To keep the outfit cohesive, the silver earrings and clutch highlighted the dress' sparkle.
