style stories #11: All in White @Critics Choice Awards LA

 

Ms.Fabulous 'n French Marion Cotillard takes the wedding cake in this Dior gown. Gorgeous, fluffy, and she avoided the too much frosting faux pas by forgoing jewels. We are enchantée Ms. Cotillard.

Keira Knightley is staying true to the Vision in Shepardess style. Demure, coquette, lovely. And we totally forgot she is expecting so totally approriate. We love.
Leslie Mann's sparkles 'n ivory creation gets best party dress far and wide. But girl, we really don't like the shoes. They're not awful but then again, they are totally awful. We can't help ourselves but squint and envision some dainty Mary Janes in satin silver.

Rosamunde Pike's second outing in white after the Golden Globes. We don't want to be mean so we'll direct your attention to a wonderful piece of music by Schubert titled "Rosamunde". Lovely, lilting, lyrical. Do seek it out.

Jessica Chastain in homage to the Lady from Shanghai. More important than the gown: her words during the acceptance speech for her MVP award:

"Today is Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday, [Jan 15th] So, it got me thinking about our need to build the strength of diversity in our industry." Chastain went on to plead with her fellow stars "to stand together against homophobic, sexist, misogynistic, anti-Semitic, and racist agendas." Calling herself an optimist, she said, "I can't help but feel hopeful about the future of film -- especially looking at all these beautiful people in this room. Martin Luther King Jr. said, 'Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.' And I would like to encourage everyone in this room to please speak up."

Well said Ms. Chastain.
