Last night’s Critic’s Choice Awards was filled with a bevy of beautiful dresses on the red carpet, but these dresses were our faves from the evening. These ladies turned heads with their chic, flawless looks. Here’s our favorites.  

The Silver Linings Playbook’s Jennifer Lawrence turned heads in this glam black silk gown with leather accents by designer Prabal Gurung.

Meanwhile, Naomi Watts proves that there’s nothing sexier than the little black dress, looking stunning in a chic number by Emilio Pucci. We love the triangular chiffon panel in the front.

Rocking a look that was old Hollywood glamour was actress Emily Blunt, who kept it simple but totally chic in a white Miu Miu gown with sequin accents.

Bringing in a bit of color was Eva Longoria, who was one of the sexiest stars of the night in a rich berry-colored gown with a sexy back by Monique Lhuillier.

    What to wear on every kind of date

    It’s the best and worst time to be a single girl in the dating world. On the one hand, past generations of women didn’t have the freedom, financial independence, access to birth control (depending on your state and employer, of course), or plethora of options to meet new people—online and off—that we enjoy today. On the other hand, they also didn’t have to worry about sexting, selecting the best selfie for their profile picture, or accidentally swiping right on a coworker.
