Jennifer Carpenter hit the red carpet at the 21st Annual Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City, wearing the first look from the Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 collection.

Her sleeveless white dress with a plastic shredded appliqué on the yoke gives Jennifer, known for her love of dresses with thigh-high splits, an refreshing angelic look.

I love how she enhances her look with a metallic silver clutch, but I’m finding it hard to have the same love for her Marc Jacobs heels from the same collection.

Strappy sandals would’ve been preferred.
