The red carpet is like a crystal ball for fashion, and the 2024 Critics Choice Awards are no exception. While rosettes, metallics, and the color red are clearly going nowhere, a smattering of attendees also seemed particularly interested in mixing and matching the masculine and the feminine.
With infinite room to play on the spectrum, the stars had a field day, combining oft-gendered clothing in compelling new ways. Many chose to toy with suiting, like Sarah Snook, who wore a black suit jacket over a sweeping skirt, accessorizing it all with diamonds. Meanwhile, Bel Powley’s black bowtie added some contrast to her voluminous skirt and flower appliqués. Others kept it more casual: Natasha Lyonne opted for a pair of black suspenders with her sequined fringe maxi skirt, and Jennifer Aniston added a cummerbund with a train to her pants and bustier.
Some of the younger stars on the carpet embraced a punkish twist. Billie Eilish (who wore Thom Browne) layered a sexy black bustier over a more formal white button-down, while Reservation Dogs’ Devery Jacobs layered an oversized tuxedo jacket—sans sleeves—over a floor-length black tulle skirt.
The men on the carpet also delivered. The pearl embellishments on Steven Yeun’s Louis Vuitton jacket brought a sweet touch to his look, while Lenny Kravitz continued to experiment with cutout suiting, and The Bear’s Matty Matheson hopped on the ballet flats trend for himself.
Below, see how the stars mixed masculinity and femininity at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards.
