Several stars from Danielle Brooks to Aja Naomi King elevated their look at Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards 2024 in Santa Monica, Calif., with gowns that emphasized one of fashion’s biggest style trends: bows.
From three-dimensional bows like the one found on Reese Witherspoon’s organically shaped Celine gown to Camila Morrone’s sweet and simple bow placed on the center of her Chanel dress, many celebrities were able to uniquely interpret the trend for the red carpet.
