We must say, 2016 has been quite a solid year in terms of red carpet fashion. From the Oscars to Cannes, our favorite stars wore some seriously inspiration-worthy fashion. From Jennifer Lawrence mixing a sweater with tulle to the vampiest of looks à la Krysten Ritter, there were plenty of winners this year (whether they left with an award, or not).
Last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards—the last awards show we’ll be watching this year—was no exception. Celebrating the best in television, these actresses stunned in some of the most gorgeous looks we’ve seen all year. The best part about it? The overall trends were quite the mixed bag. We saw everything from the most intricate beaded and lace gowns to structured pantsuits and frocks, and even a couple of curveball prints and patterns (not to mention, some out of this world beauty looks). All in all, it was a red carpet worth celebrating.

Not only are we obsessed with Evan Rachel Wood’s sleek, black pantsuit by Altuzarra, but we can’t get over her two-toned hair.
Bella Thorne’s sheer, beaded gown by Steven Kahlil was a stunner, but her flame-like ombre ponytail was the real winner here.

Kylie Bunbury was the perfect shade of Greenery in her simple (yet stunning) gown by Kayat.

Is it a LBD or a gown? Naomie Harris’ simply stunning mini dress by Stella McCartney was taken to the next level with that floor-length sheerness.
While we loved Allison Williams’ crisscross gown by Balmain, her teal-rimmed eyes stole the show (and gave us plenty of holiday makeup inspo).
