Ah, award season is in full swing. While the rich and famous pat each other on the back and hand out awards, we watch for our favourites to win and hope to get a glimpse of upcoming fashion. Last night was the Critics’ Choice Award celebrating the best in film. These awards are not televised, but are just as important as the Oscars because the votes are coming from critics themselves.

Luckily there were myriad photographers to capture some fabulous fashion moments.

A big trend is to opt for lighter shades – either completely white or pale grays. We LOVE what Jessica Chastain, Leslie Mann and Marion Cotillard wore.

Emily Blunt wore the next biggest red carpet trend, which is, of course, red. The open shoulders and stunning beadwork make this dress a huge win.

Rihanna held her first annual Diamond Ball to raise money for her Clara Lionel Foundation (named after her grandparents). The charity raises money for health, arts and education around the world.

Gucci creative director Frida Giannini and CEO Patrizio di Marco have resigned their posts. The reasons for theses departures aren’t noted publicly, but Gucci has always had trouble with keeping their top people. Remember the Tom Ford debacle? The company has stated that it is actively searching for replacements. Riccardio Tisci of Givenchy fame is currently being courted.

Heck no!
