The gloomiest month is (almost!) out of the way, and alongside the longer, brighter days, the only thing that has been cheering us up has been the start of awards season which has provided a tonne of chic red carpet looks. We've seen lots of cold snap dressing inspiration from the street style sets in Paris for the haute couture shows, and in Copenhagen for the capital's fashion week.
But who should be crowned the best dressed of the month? It was tricky, but after much deliberating, The Telegraph fashion team have picked their most stylish for the January best dressed awards. And the winners are...
Best dressed award for: Proving new Celine can be chic
"Rachel Weisz at the Golden Globes gets my vote. Her dress by Hedi Slimane's is a reworked spring/summer 2019 look. On the runway, it appeared as a mini dress with stompy boots - very Hedi - so I loved this more grown-up interpretation. I'm also into the way it slightly references the ruffled dresses her character wears in The Favourite." CMD
Best dressed award for: Nailing dressing for the cold snap
"How better to beat the January cold than Celine Aagaard's beige blanket bonanza. Swaddled in cashmere, layered over sharp tailoring and a tucked trouser is the ultimate fashion fightback to the Beast from the East." SW
Best dressed award for: Opting for an evening jumpsuit
"Julia Roberts in this Louis Vuitton jumpsuit at the Critics' Choice Awards was a highlight for me. I loved the fact that it looked like she was wearing tails, or some sort of very ornate cape, on the red carpet rather than a classic gown. Also a Messika diamond choker was an amazing way to finish it off." CL
Best dressed award for: Perfectly clashing pink and red
"Laura Harrier has quickly become my new season style inspiration. The American actress doesn't shy away from trend-led pieces (last month she sported a pale yellow feather top wide-leg jumpsuit which would have had most people running for the hills) but she pulls of all of her statement looks with aplomb.
For the recent SAG Awards,she wore a custom fuchsia dress by Loewe which featured off-the-shoulder sleeves and a floaty full skirt. She's known for adding an edge to her look and a clashing bright red pout was just the thing. Since, she's been spotted in a pinstripe red suit and cobalt blue bag. I can't wait to see what she wears in February." KT
Best dressed award for: Rocking a white tux
"There's something incredibly cool about rocking up to an awards ceremony in a suit, especially if that suit is a white, wide legged one and the person in question is 71 years old.
Glenn Close looked incredible in a double-breasted Ralph Lauren trouser-suit at this year's SAG awards - she was the picture of sophisticated cool, not over the top or try hard in the slightest. Close rejected the usual 'dripping in millions of pounds worth of diamonds' look, which is commonplace at such events, in favour of a simple necklace and her grandmother's wedding ring. The heirloom was worn to honour her late grandmother's unfulfilled dream of becoming an actress." RB
Best dressed award for: making practical look pretty
A cosy polo neck and a pair of practical chunky flat boots are both my winter wardrobe mainstays and the last thing you might expect to see on the couture front row. So hurray for Natalia Vodianova who managed to combine both as she took her place at Dior's show during couture fashion week. Worn with heels, this floral trench might look a bit too ladylike and pretty, but I adored how Vodianova toughened it up. An approach to remember when we're getting dressed for this week's storms and blizzards.
