worst-dressed-critics-choice

Now that we’ve talked about who looked good, it’s time to talk about who looked less than good at the 2014 Critic’s Choice Movie Awards. There were a lot of interesting choices, but unfortunately, “interesting” does not always translate into “good.” Scroll down for the not-so-awesome.

elisabeth-rohm

So, Elisabeth Rohm. Her hair and makeup are flawless classic Hollywood, but the dress is way too blah. Is it gray? Is it white? Is she Miss Havisham?

brie-larson

Brie Larson is nominated tonight for her role in Short Term 12. I don’t know much about the movie, but I hear her performance is amazing. I am much less amazed by her Escada dress, which looks like a couch my grandmother would have complimented at Colonial Williamsburg.

melissa-mccarthy

Melissa McCarthy‘s hair and makeup look great, but I think that print is overwhelming her. I wanna steal that ring, though.

emma-thompson

Emma Thompson, I love you, but that coat looks like a Christmas tree skirt that my crazy great aunt had in the mid eighties. My older female relatives are popping up all over the place, huh?

abigail-breslin

Abigail Breslin went with the trend of beaded, lacy, long-sleeved dresses, but I think this wishy-washy blue-gray is not her color. Nor is that lipstick her friend.

Read on to see Meryl, Julia and a rare misstep from Cate Blanchett.

julia-roberts

Julia Roberts snuck into the Mad Men sets in the middle of the night and tore the upholstery off of an authentic mid-century couch. Then she sewed it into a dress and wore it with sunglasses. Jk, it was made by designer Juan Carlos Obando. I can still see this print perfectly at home in Don Draper’s office, though.

meryl-streepWell, Meryl Streep is basically wearing a bedazzled tarp. Plus, stockings with open-toed shoes, which according to my ninth-grade Spanish teacher is the worst fashion faux pas you can ever make. I also don’t know what her earrings are doing but they look dangerously close to gouging her neck. Not your best look, Meryl.

cate-blanchett

I know that Cate Blanchett is considered a fashion icon, but that doesn’t mean that this dress doesn’t look like the weird nightgown thing that a medieval knight would wear under his armor. It’s Lanvin, by the way.

christina-applegateAt first glance, I kind of liked Christina Applegate‘s tulle-y red Marchesa dress. But then it started to remind me of a saloon girl Halloween costume. I think it would be gorgeous if it were a solid color with the tulle or if it were lace without the tulle, but lace + tulle + brightest of bright reds = tacky mess.

leslie-bibb

I can’t tell if Leslie Bibb is wearing a belt that just happens to be the EXACT color of her flesh or if that’s actually her flesh. As a rule, I think red carpet dresses shouldn’t make someone squint and wonder about flesh. How about you?

margot-robbie

I’m sure that some people liked Margot Robbie‘s Elie Saab jumpsuit. I do not happen to be among them. It’s wrinkly and awkward. Also, is she wearing BRASS KNUCKLES? I don’t dig the jumpsuit, but I guess I’ll have to give her some cool cred for wearing brass knuckles to an awards show. Oh wait, a closer look reveals they’re attached to her purse. Not as badass. But you know, more badass than a glittering tent a la Meryl.
