Last week’s Golden Globes saw red carpet glamour return to Hollywood after a year disrupted by actors’ and writers’ strikes. On Sunday, the stars were out in force again for the 29th Critics Choice Awards, which was back at Santa Monica Airport’s Barker Hangar for the first time since 2020.
At last year’s ceremony, many opted for dark gowns on what would be a night of understated fashion. This time around there was, again, an abundance of black outfits, from Tracee Ellis Ross’ elegant off-shoulder Fendi Couture gown to Christina Ricci’s more risqué latex number. Rachel Brosnahan and Jennifer Aniston — in Givenchy and Dolce & Gabbana, respectively — also impressed in simple all-black outfits.
There were plenty of rosettes and floral embellishments on show, continuing a trend seen at the Golden Globes. They were worn on the shoulder (see Emily Blunt’s eye-catching Armani Privé outfit) and as a centerpiece (on Rosamund Pike’s shimmering Rodarte halter-neck gown), while fans speculated that the intricate rose detailing of Margot Robbie’s red Balmain dress was another nod to a vintage Barbie doll — namely 1996’s “Radiant Rose” Barbie.
Meanwhile, several of the evening’s best-dressed men, including Jeremy Allen White, also opted for all-black, though Colman Domingo’s mustard-and-gold Valentino ensemble, Kieran Culkin’s dapper teal Zegna suit and Matt Bomer’s all-blue Berluti look brought some welcome color.
Some of the best suits, however, were worn by the female stars, with Bella Ramsey’s mint Thom Browne two-piece and “The Bear” star Ayo Edebiri’s all-white suit by The Row among the evening’s most dashing tailored looks. Greta Lee also offered a masterclass in how to rock menswear, arriving in a sparkly all-black look straight from Loewe’s Spring-Summer 2024 ready-to-wear men’s collection.
See below for some of the evening’s best red carpet looks.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Donald Trump won South Carolina’s Republican primary on Saturday, easily beating former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in her home state and further consolidating his path to a third straight GOP nomination. Trump has now swept every contest that counted for Republican delegates, adding to previous wins in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The former president’s latest victory will likely increase pressure on Haley, who was Trump’s former representativ
Adam Ruzicka's contract is being terminated by the Arizona Coyotes after he cleared unconditional waivers on Saturday. The Coyotes put him on waivers Friday after Ruzicka posted to social media a video showing him with a white powder appearing to be cocaine and a credit card on a counter. The team announced only that Ruzicka went on waivers for termination purposes and said it would have no further comment. The NHL Players' Association has 60 days to file a grievance on Ruzicka's behalf. Ruzicka

The letter to Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-MD), first obtained by ABC News, includes a picture of Bobulinski and then-Trump Chief-of-Staff Mark Meadow
At least one member of the Republican National Committee is working to slow Donald Trump's attempted takeover of the organization by pushing to keep the committee neutral until Trump is officially the presidential nominee and avoid picking up his legal bills. Two draft resolutions are being circulated by Henry Barbour, a national committeeman from Mississippi, for consideration at the RNC's upcoming March meeting in Houston. Barbour said support for the resolutions among RNC members is growing but he does not yet have the needed cosponsors, and any resolutions would ultimately be nonbinding.
via Fox NewsFox News anchor Neil Cavuto corrected Donald Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election on Friday, cutting away from the former president’s campaign rally to remind viewers that the issue is settled after having been “adjudicated many, many times.”Trump, on the eve of the GOP primary in South Carolina, repeated his debunked assertion about the election he lost, claiming the vote had somehow been rigged. Cavuto did not cut away from Trump’s speech immediately, and when he did so, it
The Wisconsin Ethics Commission is recommending felony charges against a fundraising committee aligned with former President Donald Trump for allegedly conspiring to improperly line the pockets of a Trump-endorsed candidate who unsuccessfully challenged a powerful Republican critic of the former president. In a series of reports shared Friday with district attorneys' offices in the state, the bipartisan ethics panel laid out evidence of an alleged scheme to direct funds to the campaign of Adam Steen, a Trump-endorsed Republican who in 2022 unsuccessfully ran to unseat Wisconsin Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, one of the most powerful lawmakers in the state. Vos, who once likened Trump to the iceberg that sank the Titanic, ultimately defeated Steen by a narrow margin.
NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump’s lawyers asked a New York judge Friday to suspend an $83.3 million defamation verdict against the former president, saying there was a “strong probability” that it would be reduced on appeal, if not eliminated. The lawyers made the request in Manhattan federal court, where a civil jury in late January awarded the sum to advice columnist E. Jean Carroll after a five-day trial that focused only on damages. A judge had ordered the jury to accept the findings of another
