There was no shortage of high profile shows this Paris Fashion Week, from Alexander Wang’s new collection for Balenciaga to Nicolas Ghesquiere’s Louis Vuitton debut, but, in terms of front row attendees, it’s safe to say that Miu Miu nailed it. Brace yourself for this all-star lineup: recent Oscar winners Lupita Nyong’o and her "rumored boyfriend" Jared Leto, Rihanna, Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, and Margot Robbie, just to name a few. Even better was the seating chart, with Lupita and Rihanna sharing space. Just imagine them casually exchanging style tips, life lessons, and beauty tricks #dreamteam.
Tonight's Critics' Choice Movie Awards forced Hollywood's elite to step out on the red carpet once again (the third time in just a little over a WEEK). It seems like we JUST picked apart the looks from the 2014 Golden Globes, but hey, that's the life of the rich, famous, and talented. (It's also what happens when the Winter Olympics forces much of awards season OUT of February.) The Critics' Choice attendees played it pretty safe overall, proving that awards shows are sometimes more about professionalism rather than just seeing and being seen. Still, there were a few envelope-pushing looks that we think are worth talking about. Take a look at our faves!

Can we just go ahead and crown Lupita Nyong'o the official red carpet darling of 2014 already? I know it's only January, but girl's track record is PRISTINE. If her gorgeous caped dress at the Golden Globes wasn't enough to convince you, just look at this white-hot number. We love all aspects of the crisp, clean Calvin Klein look from its athletic neckline to its geometric bodice cutouts, but don't sleep on her matching manicure, shimmering makeup, metallic clutch, or perfectly compatible Kimberly Macdonald jewelry either! Girl is FLAWLESS.
While the People's Choice Awards may have ~officially~ kicked off the 2014 awards season, tonight's Golden Globes really catapulted the year of red carpet fashion into high gear. We pulled out six well-heeled ladies from the 2014 PCAs, but now, we're bringing you a list of 10 for the Globes (though, TBH, we were tempted to just crown Lupita Nyong'o THE best dressed and go home, because girl SHUT IT DOWN).

I mean, do I really need to explain this decision? The 12 Years A Slave actress showed up EARLY to the Golden Globes red carpet wearing Ralph Lauren, and even well before most of the attendees arrived, she had clinched her position as the best dressed lady of the night. It's solid but not boring thanks to that almost-neon red hue. It's body-conscious without looking grossly painted on, and those classic RL clean lines are softened by her warm, beaming smile. With its straight off-the-shoulder neckline and long cape, the gown is definitely fashion forward, but this is also 100% the kind of timeless ensemble that we'll be looking back fondly on for YEARS. (P.S. If this is what she pulls out for the Globes, we can't WAIT to see what she whips out for the Oscars.)
