From Floral to Flannel, the Coolest Celebs at the Independent Spirit Awards
No simple sheath or basic bob? Are we sure that’s ? The actress steps out of her comfort zone in a draped, striped and adorned Giambattista Valli halter mini, sexy black Christian Louboutin sandals sandals and a messy pompadour.
She’s hit so many red carpets, we don’t know how she’s still upright, let alone in heels and a cute outfit. But the 12 Years a Slave star (and Oscar nominee) continues her style streak in an embossed Stella McCartney romper, Casadei piped pumps and a Devi Kroell clutch at the Santa Monica, Calif., awards.
From a spangled jumpsuit one night to a sleek column the next, there may be no outfit that can’t be conquered by Cate, queen of the red carpet. She pairs her Roksanda Ilincic abstract floral dress and brass belt with studded ivory Nicholas Kirkwood sandals.
You’ve gotta love a star who knows what works for her, and this look is signature Shailene from head-to-toe: an unembellished two-piece outfit, flat Casadei sandals and minimal hair, makeup and jewelry.
Rather than try to make a Frozen joke (and inevitably get “Let It Go”) stuck in your head, we’re just going to admire the lace-trimmed cobalt Reem Acra dress and classic Christian Louboutin d’Orsay pumps. Darn it. It’s stuck in your head, isn’t it?
She may not be wearing her wedding ring, but that doesn t mean everything else has to change: Paula hits the carpet wearing her favorite look, a short and sheer lace mini (hers is Lorena Sarbu), plus nude pumps and pale lips.
This side ponytail wasn’t part of her hair trial, but we think it’s got Oscars updo potential. Today she wears it with a flowy, asymmetric white Dior dress featuring blush and blue stripes.
Husband Matthew wore a shiny copper three-piece suit with sapphire-colored suede shoes, so we think it’s wise that Camila went for a simpler look: This belted bustier Juan Carlos Obando pantsuit with nude heels and some seriously gorgeous glossy curls.
The actress goes down the “sexy dressing” checklist and ticks off every box along the way. Shiny black leather? Skintight silhouette? Animal prints? Metallic heels (hers are Rupert Sanderson)? She’s got ‘em all, and bombshell hair to boot.
It’s a gusty day in L.A., which is why we’re giving Lake and Anna bravery points for wearing skirts that are particularly susceptible to wind-related wardrobe malfunctions. Lake’s breezy look is courtesy of Stella McCartney.
Shailene’s Divergent costar looks like she’s from a completely different faction (sorry, had to) in her busy off-the-shoulder, pleated, placketed and puffed shorts outfit, plus peep-toe booties.
The actress pays tributes to the original Independent Spirit – Laura Ingalls Wilder – in a prairie-inspired dotted maxi shirtdress and loose side braid.
Finally, the reason we’re all here: to see what Jared Leto wears on the red carpet. He does not disappoint, delivering the holy grail of layered looks; from the ground up, we’ve got high-tops, black jeans, plaid flannel, quilted leather jacket, artfully draped scarf and that crowning glory, his ombré mane.
