Awards season 2014 is upon us and round one of the fash-off is over. So who were the winners? And does Jennifer Lawrence's loyalty to Dior continue to be the worst thing that's happened to red carpet dressing since forever? (Spoiler: yes it does.)
Here's my cream of the crop...
Lupita Nyong'o in Ralph Lauren
Stop fashion. Lupita Nyong'o just won it. Amazing colour, perfect cut, stunning styling, there's nothing about this look that I'm not obsessed with. I can't even begin to think how anyone will better this all season.
Cate Blanchett in Armani Privé
Cate Blanchett is always pitch perfect on the red carpet and this lacy Armani stunner is no exception. A bit gothic, completely glamorous, impeccably styled. Lovely stuff.
Michelle Dockery in Oscar de la Renta
I can't say I'm usually a fan of the assymetrical hem, but lovely Michelle pulls it off with aplomb here. I love the simple styling of this - nude pumps, minimal jewels, natural make up, unfussy hair - and the embellishment on the dress is divine.
Zooey Deschanel in Oscar de la Renta
Just the right side of quirky, this look is super cute. I like the interplay of the different embellishment and the pearl studded shoes are to die for. I'm not usually a fan of Zooey's style, but this time she gets it so right.
Julia Louis Dreyfus in Narciso Rodriguez
Julia Louis Dreyfus is 52 years old. Let's just look at that photo and think about that for a moment. Ok? This dress just looks good. Damn good. The cut is perfect - and that thin halter strap is doing magical things for her shoulders - the fit is perfect and her body is frankly frighteningly good. (And JLD won the ceremony.)
Next up? The Screen Actors' Guild awards on Sunday. Bring it.
