Posted by January 11, 2013 9:45 am

Jaime King is obviously naturally stunning, but her sideswept curls, flawless skin and matte red lip were the perfect accessory to her black dress. Add a cat eye and the look was complete.

Amanda Seyfried doesn't play it safe with beauty looks – she likes to experiment, and we of course like this. This fun knotted "hair bow"-inspired top knot flatters her high neckline dress, and is so eye catching that we just want to know how it was done.

 

Leslie Mann absolutely killed it last night choosing a vibrant pink hued lip to contrast with her bright pink dress – we love that she just went for it.

 

Jessica Chastain rarely gets a beauty look wrong, but played it a little safe here (not that we can say one bad thing about this look). Her sideswept curls are gorgeous paired with a glossy pink lip and [...]

 

Jessica Chastain rarely gets a beauty look wrong, but played it a little safe here (not that we can say one bad thing about this look). Her sideswept curls are gorgeous paired with a glossy pink lip and cat eye. The girl knows how to work a red carpet.

 

Emily Blunt has been absolutely stunning lately, and this vintage look just made our jaws drop. Her old Hollywood curls, flawless skin and pop of Giorgio Armani lip maestro in #503 was everything.

 

We love that Elle Fanning chose a neon pink dash of liner on her eyelids last night – she's young and the look is so playful. If anyone can pull it off, it's her.

 

Anne Hathaway's hair looks amazing in this grown-out pixie stage – perfect haircut inspiration. Her subdued makeup look was a good choice for the color of her Oscar de la Renta dress. 

 

Another actress who can never look bad, Nina Dobrev's fun volumized ponytail was a great way to complete her entire look since her dress was so colorful and shimmery. Keeping her makeup simple yet still [...]

 

Another actress who can never look bad, Nina Dobrev's fun volumized ponytail was a great way to complete her entire look since her dress was so colorful and shimmery. Keeping her makeup simple yet still mature made this look spot-on.

 

Emmy Rossum knows to use her hair to her advantage, leaving it down (again with a gorgeous old Hollywood style wave). She kept the makeup simple with a gorgeous flick of a cat eye and nude lip.

 

As award season ramps up (the People’s Choice Awards just took place and we can hardly wait until the Globes this weekend) the amount of time that we spend gaping over and then discussing red carpet looks becomes a bit out of control. But so far this season, and admittedly it is still very early, we have been loving quite a few of the looks. We always try to use the first few award shows to predict the others (although no one can say if this really pans out or not, but do what you wish with this information) and last night at the Critics’ Choice Awards Jessica Chastain took home the Best Actress prize while Ben Affleck took home Best Director and his movie, “Argo,” won Best Picture as well.

Another big winner of the night? Vibrant lipstick hues. One of the most exciting things of award season so far is how daring the stars have been with their beauty looks, choosing out-of-the-box lipstick colors such as neon pink (to go with a pink dress) and we can only hope this will continue. Last night’s show also saw a ton of sideswept curls or simply straightened locks, so it will be interesting to see whether stars choose curly or straight as awards season progresses. We obviously also pulled our top ten favorites of the night above – give us your thoughts on who you liked the best!
