Cate Blanchett In Schiaparelli Couture – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Cate Blanchett In Schiaparelli Couture - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Cate Blanchett cut a striking profile at the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21), hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

She wore her heart on her sleeve—literally—in this Schiaparelli Spring 2015 Couture design that was aflutter with the motif of hearts shot through by Cupid’s bow along with eye-catching dimensional embroidery.

Boasting the subtle surrealistic vibe for which the house of Schiaparelli is known, the streamlined dress with ruffle hem was exuberant and whimsical yet as elegantly chic as can be—perfect for Cate.

All I can say is I absolutely heart this look—do you?

Emmy Rossum In Oscar de la Renta – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Emmy Rossum was also at the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21), hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

Looking like a beautiful breath of fresh spring air, the actress enchanted in an Oscar de la Renta Spring 2015 nude frock awash in a bouquet of bright floral embroidery.

The semi-sheer, full skirt is particularly alluring here with its fairytale-like charm.

Playing to the colours of the flower petals, she painted on a magenta lip and further complemented the dress with dark-plum pumps.

Perhaps I might have pulled the hair back for sleeker effect, but that is nitpicking.

I was curious what Emmy would wear after her breathtaking moment at the Costume Designers Guild Awards, as I’m still entranced by that BDOTY statement. Yet she doesn’t disappoint here.

Kristen Bell In Andrew Gn – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kristen Bell attended the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21), hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

The actress hit the ‘pink’ carpet in an Andrew Gn Resort 2015 frock that delighted with its youthful and lighthearted flair.

Lavender floral appliques that peek from the asymmetrical black dress are balanced by its oversized bow, which could have been deemed too precious were it not for the punchy neon-green colour.

Styled simply with black heels and floral-shaped earrings, this was a fun, striking look for Kristen.

Blanca Suarez In Emilio Pucci – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Blanca Suarez In Emilio Pucci - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Blanca Suarez was also among the stars at the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

Putting the bold in beach, the Spanish actress selected a sassy Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 minidress, which featured the label’s signature ritzy sultriness.

While I’m sure some will find fault with the deep plunge neckline, it was the multiple chains of the gold pendant necklace that I took issue with.

It was an unnecessary accessory with the already highly embellished tribal motif of the dress, which could easily stand on its own. As is, the look felt a bit contrived for the occasion.

Gillian Jacobs In Preen – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Gillian Jacobs In Preen - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Gillian Jacobs attended the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

Adhering to the more laidback flavour of these film awards, the ‘Community’ actress wore a playful Preen Resort 2015 frock with quirky mixed floral and insect motifs all encased within geometric patterning.

Beach-y waves were a natural fit for the occasion, with the added pizzazz coming courtesy of her red studded Barbara Bui pumps that accent the same colour in the dress.

Having seen the lookbook version, I can’t help but crave the added visual interest of the cropped, short-sleeve top and the asymmetric, diagonal hem of the skirt, as it adds another layer of directional charm. But the one-piece dress is more in line with Gillian’s style.

What do you prefer?

Bérénice Marlohe In SAFiYAA – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Berenice Marlohe In SAFiYAA - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Bérénice Marlohe made a return to the red carpet for the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

The French actress put on her cocktail best in a SAFiYAA body-con black dress with contrast netted detailing at the shoulders and waist, which fit her like a glove.

Still maintaining her heavy eye makeup, her smoky eye contributed a sense of sultriness to the otherwise straightforward look. Yet there seemed to be an effort to also translate a more casual flair with her wispy, intentionally messy updo.

I believe if she had traded her standard-issue black pumps for a more interesting pair of sandals, I would have liked this LBD even more. As is, I like it from the waist up, as her radiant smile carries the look.
