More stars were also in attendance at the 2017 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 25) in Santa Monica, California.
Danielle Brooks: The ‘OITNB’ actress took the plunge in an Urban Zen by Donna Karan wrap jersey tunic and pant, complemented by a body chain—as if enough attention wasn’t already directed to the girls.
Natasha Lyonne: The actress took a custom Creatures of The Wind rose and green floral dresses out for a spin. The pleated frock held promise, but I couldn’t see the forest for the trees given the clunky, distracting styling with the oversized white clutch and ivory boots.
Trace Lysette: With the day’s most forthright display of peek-a-boo panties, she wore an Elisabetta Franchi Spring 2017 lace frock with Cesare Paciotti shoes. Yes, sheer fatigue has set in but at least this look flirted with a slightly different silhouette in the short, flare skirt.
Ava DuVernay: Her Gucci dress was all about the print and the pleats, but in combination with the beige heels, the only thing I took from this look was that it was way too mumsy and bland for Ava’s dynamic vibe.
Aubrey Plaza: The compelling mix of her Versus Versace printed blouse with the shiny checkerboard skirt was enough to intrigue me. The same couldn’t be said for the black pumps.
Jenny Slate: Awash in plisse movement, the sky-blue, micro-print Luisa Beccaria Spring 2017 dress with a keyhole cutout commanded a casually alluring tone. Do you think the white Tyler Ellis clutch should’ve been smaller?
Issa Rae: Issa can be hit or miss on the red carpet, so today she kept it simple and sleek with a navy-blue gown styled with Atelier Swarovski jewelry and an Edie Parker ‘Fiona’ clutch.
