And just like that, one of the biggest weeks in award season has come to a close, but not without delivering one last assortment of top-notch red carpet looks. Fresh off the heels of the star-studded 2024 Golden Globes and the Governors Awards, this year’s industry front-runners donned their black tie best once again for the 2024 National Board of Review Awards Gala. On Jan. 11, the Hollywood set touched down in New York dressed in a sartorial lineup that took subtle cues from this week’s previous occasions. The A-list affair also introduced a new theme to the award season rotation: minimal jewels — a surprising, yet on-point decision since their lavish dresses fulfilled the glitzy quota.

Similar to the Governors Awards, the National Board of Review Awards Gala celebrates the biggest achievements and impact in film over the past year. Killers of the Flower Moon and The Holdovers were the evening’s most awarded honorees, while Lily Gladstone took home the title of “Best Actress” and Teyana Taylor the trophy for “Breakthrough Performance.” This year’s champions checked into Cipriani 42nd Street, where they were joined by previous NBR award winners like Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain.

Hathaway, who has two NBR titles under her belt, arrived at the Thursday night occasion looking stunning in a strapless LBD from Giorgio Armani adorned in hundreds of black rhinestones. Her Mother’s Instinct costar, Chastain also made waves at the event. She walked the gray carpet in a fabulous iridescent Vivienne Westwood gown that, from one angle, appeared to be a deep magenta shade, and a striking violet hue from another. Much like Hathaway and Chastain, the gala’s “Breakthrough Performance” victor, Taylor, was another who went full glam mode. The rapper was undeniably the brightest in the room thanks to her fresh-off-the-runway Christopher Rogers gown in a show-stopping aquamarine shade.
