Sticking to her tried and true black/white theme...
...but gave us something different with a thigh high split ballroom gown.
Tis the season for announcing nominations and televising award shows.
Last night was the Critics Choice Awards 2016. Hosted by the recently arrested and released T.J. Miller (no, but forreal, he was arrested like a couple days ago), the 2.5 hrs show was a good one.
Okay, gotta admit. Can't really say much about T.J.'s hosting skills because I pretty much had the show on mute save for a couple of winners' speeches. His acting as on Silicon Valley (yay for their Best Comedy Series win!), I can work with. TJ outside of Silicon Valley, not so much.
Congratulations to Viola Davis, Game of Thrones, Mahershala Ali (I wooped 'Let's go!' so fucking loud liked I watched Moonlight. hahaha. Very much plan on watching the movie, though. Okay, my celebration was for his work on House of Cards and being one of the only good things on Luke Cage), Donald Glover, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and the folks who won because of the show - Sarah Paulson, Sterling K. Brown, and Courtney B. Vance, Ryan Reynolds (Y'know, I'm very happy for his resurgence. Definitely plan on watching Deadpool on his behalf), Regina King, Jane Krakowski, Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown, and Shark Tank.
With alladat outta the way, fashion time!
|Donald Glover in Burberry|
He was surprised to win for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
I was kinda surprised, too.
But yay for him cause I really like Atlanta.
Diggin' the 70s vibe. The monochromatic touch, too.
Still unsure about the gold necklace.

Another show I like, okay, scratch that - LOVE - is This is Us.
So, it's only fair that I feature the ladies of the show.
First up, Ms. Mandy 'I Wanna Be With You' Moore.
While the color looks fantastic on her, didn't care much for the dress.
|Rounding up the ladies of This is Us is Chrissy Metz.|
The brown trim is doing no justice to this dress.
In fact, it seriously dates this already vintage inspired dress.
|Sarah Paulson in Vera Wang|
Love the pearl detailing on the skirt.
Wouldn't have gone with black heels. Metallic or silver, instead.
She should've ditched the white clutch, too.
|Tracee Ellis Ross in Zuhair Murad|
Such a cute dress. Fits her nicely.
And I'm so here for the casual cornrows.
The whole look has an easy feel despite the dress being a bit fitted and structured.
|Viola Davis in Michael Kors|
We've seen variations of this dress plenty of times on Viola.
What she does so well is pick the right colors to complement her gorgeous skin.
|Michelle Monaghan in Monique Lhullier|
As stated before in the last awards show recap, I'm tired the sheer see my panties trend.
And what's with the limp contrasting bow pinned on her stomach?
When trying to be different falls short.
|Bryce Dallas Howard in Topshop|
Wowza this color is a big ol' nothing.
And clashing horribly with her hair.
|Kaley Cuoco in Noon by Noor|
She never fails on the red carpet.
And not in a good way.
She sucks on the red carpet.
From the hair, to the tube-with-an-unnecessary-train-top to the yucky pants -
this is a clear example of how not to do monochromatic.
