Despite movies' most buzzed-about actresses playing it safe with their red carpet garb at Thursday night's Critics' Choice Awards in L.A., three leading ladies made up for it with their stand-out makeup and hair choices.

Emma Stone, in a green Jason Wu gown, stepped up her style and makeup game from Wednesday night's People's Choice Awards when she wore a menswear-inspired ensemble. We're loving her black winged eyeliner and her shimmery navy eye shadow, which completed the effect of a come-hither stare that would make any boy (Andrew Garfield) go weak in the knees.

Proving that a side ponytail is just as fun to try in the winter as it is during the warmer months, Kirsten Dunst sported a messy side-parted pony to complement her black chiffon Christian Dior cocktail dress. The actress added a unique textured look to her hairstyle by bunching sections of hair with pins in the back.

Busy Philipps put the focus on one of her best attributes (her full lips) by rocking a bright coral-red lipstick that appeared to be the exact shade as her eye-popping gown. To balance out her bright pout, the Cougar Town actress opted to keep her eye makeup plain and simple.
