Bright stars on the blue carpet! Nominees and A-listers amped up the wattage at the 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards in Santa Monica on Sunday, December 11. Tune in to today’s Red Carpet Daily, presented by DirecTV, to see the best dressed, and vote on your favorite styles in the poll below.

Kerry Washington looked equal parts scandalous and sweet, outfitting her postbaby body in a black Elie Saab minidress emblazoned with stars, paired with a rhinestone-studded Jimmy Choo clutch and strappy SJP Collection sandals. The mom of two, who welcomed son Caleb on October 5, also rocked a glittering mani done with OPI polishes My Gondola or Yours and My Voice Is a Little Norse, per her December 11 Instagram (she’s creative director for the brand).

Another hot mama on the carpet? Jessica Biel, who stunned in a black-and-blue-striped Elie Saab gown with lace inserts and a plunging neckline and H. Stern rings.

It wasn’t just about gowns on the carpet, though. Evan Rachel Wood modeled a tailored black Altuzarra suit and pointed-toe pumps. And Kaley Cuoco wore the pants, pairing her embellished Noon by Noor blush top with a gauzy train with matching cigarette bottoms and Stuart Weitzman sandals.
