Red Carpet Rundown: The 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Awards

Aubrey Plaza, Emmy Rossum and Diane Kruger attend the 2013 Critics Choice Awards

Last night saw the 2013 Critics’ Choice Television Awards–and the attendant red carpet. Some swings and misses here, featuring looks from Diane Kruger, Emmy Rossum, Aubrey Plaza, Lizzy Caplan, Elisabeth Moss and more.

Aisha Tyler went with big hair but Lana Kane can do what she wants.

The problem here, in our opinion, is an extremely out of balance silhouette: the tea length shortens her and the exaggerated neckline makes the dress look top heavy.

Everything else happening (namely the face area) is characteristically lovely.

Molly Shannon went with a simple LBD.

Sarah Paulson‘s dress washed her out, it seems.

While we like Cat Deeley‘s seasonally appropriate coral lipstick, we’re not into the dress. Perhaps it’s the color scheme?

Kaley Cuoco‘s dress didn’t really fit.

Malin Ackerman did a short, sparkly LBD and sandals, but went with pretty minimal makeup and unfussy hair to balance it out.

Abigail Spencer went ladylike.

Aubrey Plaza looks unbelievably great! This is a really sleek, modern look for her and it results in total babeness.

Feel like Elisabeth Moss’ look is missing something.

(Photo by Mark Davis/Getty Images for CCTA)Maria Menounos always looks like she’s going to the beauty pageant/Oscars in her dreams, where she wins every award and cries like Sally Field, but in a likeable way.

Speaking of always looking overdressed, here’s Emmy Rossum.

Jennifer Carpenter’s dress was… a… bubble peplum?

Like the metallic floral print a lot, though.

Judy Greer‘s suit was pretty strange.

Miranda Cosgrove wore a delicate lavender dress with perforated detailing.
