The 25th annual Critics' Choice Awards took place on January 12 at the Barkar Hanger in Santa Monica, California.

The prestigious event allowed the world's leading actors to go all out in the sartorial stakes. Many gentlemen also stepped away from classic black to liven up their looks while the ladies shined in sequin-festooned gowns, sexy cutaway dresses, and some seriously high octane jewels.

The myriad of different styles, trends and color schemes. From Zendaya's galactic glam Tom Ford's look to Lupita Nyong'O's Michael Kors ensemble, Hollywood's biggest stars did not come to play when it came to their fashion and beauty looks.
