Rinko Kikuchi In Chanel – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Rinko Kikuchi In Chanel - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

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

The Japanese actress, nominated for Best Female Lead in ‘Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter,’ channeled her inner pattern princess in a Chanel Resort 2015 dress.

Opting to simplify the ensemble from its original runway styling, she wore it sans the matching pants and contrasting caftan overcoat for a less Eastern-inspired exotic flair.

That’s not to say the boldly exploded floral print wasn’t vivid enough.

I just wish she had styled this statement frock differently—I could have lived with the silver metallic sandals, but there was no need for her bright makeup to echo the Crayola shades of her dress. Barely-there would have been better here.

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Kerry Washington In Balenciaga - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

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

The ‘Scandal’ actress opted for an LBD, hers from the Balenciaga Spring 2015 collection.

Impeccably sleek, but also rather austere, the design’s geometric lines and tonal embellishment at the neckline contributed a subtle yet powerful edge to the look.

Glittery black Manolo Blahnik pumps and Tiffany & Co. jewels finished the statement with the slightest touch of sparkle. A brightly coloured lip would have even further enhanced the effect.

Seriously chic or too serious?

Olivia Munn In Prabal Gurung – 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Olivia Munn In Prabal Gurung - 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards

Olivia Munn glided onto the red carpet of the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday (February 21) at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

Bringing a heightened sense of languid glamour to the event, she donned a Prabal Gurung Fall 2014 backless gown with a glittery sequined, halter-neck bodice and a softly layered, wispy chiffon skirt.

She wears colour so well, and the same goes for this captivating shade of coral.

Styling the dress with a Jimmy Choo ‘Box’ clutch and Piaget jewels, she completed the dramatic ensemble with an oxblood lip and long waves, although a sleeker, brushed-back ’do would have served the neckline better.

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 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 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.
