Colin Firth and Natalie Portman dominated the Critics Choice Awards in Los Angeles Friday night, sending an early awards season message that they will be actors to beat. And while the fashion tends to be a little toned down at this awards show, there were plenty of stunninf red carpet looks.

Kim Kardashian showed off a beautiful orange Vera Wang gown on her famous curves, while Julianne Moore wore simple, black Roland Mouret with a deep neckline. Best Actress winner Portman offered for a flowy-ivory Ferre gown to cover her baby bump.

Nicole Kidman opted for navy Nina Ricci -- with tassles! -- and Michelle Williams looked elegant in white, beaded Balenciaga. Sofia Vergara, who always brings it to the carpet, wore a metallic silver dress from Temperley London.

Annette Bening chose Georges Hobeika and Helena Bonham Carter wore a simple black corseted dress, accessorized with a bright red Lulu Guiness Swarovski-bedazzled clutch in the shape of a giant pair of lips.
