Bold colors and long trains ruled the red carpet at the 27th Annual Critics Choice Awards.
Ensembles of all shapes and sizes graced events in Los Angeles and London, while Hollywood stars continued to enjoy the return of in-person ceremonies.
Ceremony host Nicole Byer led the pack in a sweeping, off-the-shoulder gown by Christian Siriano in lipstick pink.
The comedian hosted alongside American actor Taye Diggs at the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel in Century City, Los Angeles.
Ariana DeBose continued both her awards show success and her streak of stunning gowns with a Carolina Herrera one-piece in sunflower yellow.
The star, who won best supporting actress for her portrayal of Anita in West Side Story, paid tribute to Rita Moreno, who played the same role in the original 1961 film, who, she said, “made room for me to prosper by your side.
Moreno, who was also nominated for a best supporting actress award at the CCA, wore a floor-length cream and gold dress with a large ruffled bodice and matching cream gloves.
The screen and stage veteran also opted for large turquoise and silver earrings and a gray pixie bob hairstyle.
Like DeBose, British actress Hannah Waddingham chose a Carolina Herrera design, with a striking lime skirt and black bodice.
Lady Gaga wore a striking look, wearing a flowing gold dress with black trim by Gucci, accompanied by a revealing bra-like top.
The House Of Gucci star, who was nominated for best actress at the CCAs, also wore a black lace shrug over her shoulders.
Coda star Marlee Matlin chose a bold majestic purple off-the-shoulder gown from Dolce & Gabbana.
Tennis star Serena Williams made a stunning appearance alongside her sister Venus as they attended the event alongside best actor award winner Will Smith.
Serena wore a pearl gray Atelier Versace gown with a statement train.
The sisters presented the award for best drama series and thanked the cast of King Richard for the “perfect” portrayal of their family.
British actress Jodie Turner Smith shone in a turquoise silk Gucci dress with a high neck.
Squid Game star Jung Ho Yeon also stood out on the red carpet in a striking layered structured dress by Louis Vuitton.
The couture piece was decorated with glittery silver embroidery.
Hailie Sahar wore a large Rick Owens orange hooded coat ensemble with pink gloves and red platform shoes.
But not all the stars who arrived chose to follow the red carpet.

The star also styled her silver and black hair short, reminiscent of her famous X-Men character Storm.
