ELLE’s Best Dressed For The Week: Award Season Kick-Off

In honor of our ELLE Editor’s Selections: Award Season Kick-Off Boutique on Sunday, we’re taking a look at the best award-show fashion of the week. For even more glamorous eye candy, check out Monday’s Boutique. Insider tip: This Boutique is just the beginning! Rue La La will have award season style all February long.

Celebs impressed us all this week with a lineup of flattering and all-around cool designer looks on the red carpet. Beginning with the National Board of Review Awards Gala in New York City, Felicity Jones pulled off an effortless Fellini-esque air in Dolce&Gabbana.

The following day at the People’s Choice Awards, Ginnifer Goodwin stole the spotlight in a neon pink bell-sleeve dress from Brit designer Roksanda Ilincic — any celeb brave enough to rock neon on the red carpet deserves a thumbs-up in our book. And last night at the Critic’s Choice Awards, the ladies brought out the big guns: Charlize Theron donned a captivating Azzedine Alaïa layered gown; Michelle Williams opted for an elegant black and white Chanel number from the Resort collection; Elle Fanning brought on a boho edge in Rodarte; Jessica Chastain complemented her fiery red hair with a coral-toned Balenciaga gown; red carpet rookie Shailene Woodley proved she’s fit to be a contender for best dressed this season in a Calvin Klein Collection gown, and Emma Stone proved her power in a Jason Wu gown from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection that was debuted mere weeks ago.

Let’s see if these celebs keep the momentum when they hit the red carpet at the Golden Globe awards this Sunday.

Our ELLE Editor’s Selections: Award Season Kick-Off Boutique opens Monday, January 16, 2012 at 11AM ET.
