Our best-dressed picks from January’s award shows

The three recent award shows proved that while you can never go wrong with black, a standout color or silhouette executed flawlessly will turn the most heads.

The Oscars are still two months away to round out the awards season for 2023. But the dust has now settled on the glamorous red carpets of the Golden Globes, Critics Choice Awards, and the Emmy Awards, and fashion savants have finalized their best-dressed lists and trend analyses for the three.

We at The POST agree with most of the picks and insights. Indeed, there are several ways to wear black gowns without coming across as plain and boring. Conversely, amid the sea of dark frocks, it is strategic to go the opposite direction and don bright colors, but one must make their garments more interesting with texture and shape to maximize the attention.

Here are some of our picks from the recent award shows:
