Kirsten Dunst

2012 Critics Choice Awards

The 2012 Critics Choice Awards were on tonight. I didn’t really watch them completely, but I know that Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel hosted. (Each of them is usually pretty funny. AND I am a huge fan of The League).

Bob Dylan performed and Martin Scorsese was presented with an award for his use of music in his films. Mr Scorses definitely does have amazing taste in music and always picks the best tracks making his memorable scenes even that much more powerful. HOWEVER, Olivia Harrison, widow of George Harrison,helped present this award and as Marty took the stage they played “Layla” by Eric Clapton. “Layla”… which is inspire by Patty Boyd… that chick who used to be with George and inspired some of his greatest songs like “Something”… “Layla” which even refers to George in the lyric “tried to give you consolation, when your old man had let you down.”… I mean come on. EVERY rock and roller knows this… how rude.

Onto the FASHION!

And the looks I didn’t like so much…

1.) Elizabeth Olsen - Emilio Pucci. I actually really like this dress. It just look weird and out of place at the ceremonies. 2.) Jessica Chastain. 3.) Evan Rachel Wood - Valentino
