“The Big Bang Theory” star Mayim Bialik was spotted wearing a green Oliver Tolentino dress at the Critics Choice Award red carpet.
According to Haaretz, Bialik wanted to wear a conservative gown to demonstrate her "second-wave feminist side." She shared that she does not want to wear a dress that was too short and nothing that would show off her bare arms. The actress explained that one does not have to show everything just to look sexy.
"In fact, the more you're covered up, the more you can show your attitude," she added.
Bialik, however, admitted that they had to be careful when it comes to her hair and makeup. She shared that after wearing a very conservative dress, one must make sure that they do not end up "looking matronly."
This is actually the third time that Bialik chose to wear an Oliver Tolentino original at the red carpet. In 2013 and 2014 she donned a conservative dress by the international designer, which gained press from several magazines and fashion critics, including the late Joan Rivers.
Tolentino first started designing gowns in the Philippines before he opened up his own atelier in Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood. Since then, he dressed several A-list Hollywood celebrities including Carrie Underwood, Jessica Alba, Eva Longoria and 2015 Ms. Universe Pia Wurtzbach.
Bialik ended up winning her first award for the Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for "The Big Bang Theory" at the recent Critics' Choice Award.
According to Zap2It, the actress looked extremely surprised when it was revealed that she won the award. While she was nominated several times for her role as Amy, this is the first time that she finally won. She was previously nominated for four Emmys, five Screen Actors Guild Awards and People's Choice Awards.
As this was a pleasant surprise, Bialik failed to have an acceptance speech ready. After thanking the cast and crew of "The Big Bang Theory," Bialik dedicated her first win to her late father.
"My dad died nine and a half months ago, and he was my harshest critic, and he never lived to see me win anything. So Abba, this is for you. Thank you."
