Critics' Choice Awards 2016 red carpet: lots of sparkle, little colour

If there was a buzzword at the Critics' Choice Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night – apart from "Oscars" – it must have been "neutral".

The stars all seemed to get the memo that colour was out, with white, cream, metallics, greys, muted blues and black all represented in abundance.

Amy Schumer in white, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Mary J. Blige and Bryce Dallas Howard in black, and Saoirse Ronan and Jennifer Aniston in grey/blue led the charge for the anti-colourful gowns brigade, while Rachel McAdams added a minor splash with a muted maroon Elie Saab piece.

Despite the lack of bright hues, there was certainly no shortage of glamour with sequins and embellishments being another style staple on the night.

Underworld 5 star Kate Beckinsale, who was on-hand to dish out some trophies, shone like the top of the Chrysler Building in a tight-fitting Monique Lhuillier gown covered in adornments.

Kirsten Dunst was another in a creamy gold Karl Lagerfeld designed tiered creation that caught the eye thanks to countless embellishments.

Newly-engaged model and Mad Max: Fury Road actress, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, let her new diamond engagement ring act as the main eye-catcher in a simple but elegant black Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane gown with a thigh-high split.
