Stars gathered at the Santa Monica Airport's Barker Hangar to honor the best in filmmaking at the 22nd annual Critics' Choice Awards Sunday night. While the best films of 2016 competed to see who took home the trophy, our eyes were on the arrivals to see which of our favorite leading ladies won on the red carpet.
From Mandy Moore to Emmy Rossum to Jessica Biel, plunging necklines were the look of the evening. Those who didn't don daring décolleté cuts went in the other direction, suiting up in silhouettes that went all the way up to a crew neck. Such modest cuts infused a playful attitude via sheer overlays adorned with stars on Kerry Washington's Elie Saab cocktail frock and graphic zigzags in the mostshades of blue on Williams's '70s-esque Balmain number. The stars had fun with their style as they hit the red carpet, and there was plenty of evening wear inspiration to be found.
