Lake Bell In Stella McCartney - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Lake Bell was also in attendance at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, held on Saturday (March 1) at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

The actress-director, nominated for Best First Screenplay ‘In a World…’, wore a Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2014 midnight-navy dress, punctuated by an exploded, graphic black circle print.

Here, she turned up the volume in this exaggerated, asymmetric shape, which featured a slit at the side.

Even when styled with classic black Gianvito Rossi suede and mesh pumps, as opposed to the lookbook’s brogues, this is a challenging silhouette to pull off.

Did she succeed, or do you just see an elevated, fancier version of a burlap sack?
