Rosario Dawson In Narciso Rodriguez – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Rosario Dawson In Narciso Rodriguez - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Giving us yet another blue-accented look, Rosario Dawson attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (March 1).

The actress was ever so refined in a Narciso Rodriguez blush-hued, square-neck top and a dark, teal-blue pencil skirt.

Accessorized with matching blue Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pumps and a similarly hued Smythson ‘Floating Envelope’ box clutch, she topped off the ensemble with pearl drop earrings and a wispy updo.

Perfectly simple, or too daytime office-chic for your liking?

Kathryn Hahn In Bibhu Mohapatra – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Kathryn Hahn was also following the blue colour trend we’ve seen at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (March 1).

The actress wore a Bibhu Mohapatra Resort 2014 lime and navy brocade dress with a half-draped skirt, all punctuated by a bright blue waistband.

With the mix of textures, prints and hues, she styled the frock simply with black Rubert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps and minimal jewels.

The pop of a hot-pink lip was the big accessory here.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Octavia Spencer attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California on Saturday (March 1).

Relying on her favoured tried-and-true designer Tadashi Shoji, the actress wore a black-and-nude lace cocktail frock from the Spring 2014 collection.

Unfortunately, I just couldn’t get behind this look like I can with her other sleekly sophisticated Shoji statements.

Although I would have liked to see her in a more vibrant, sunny colour for this event, the sassy dress was not really the problem here, as it was a victim of its styling.

The black Jimmy Choo ‘Candy’ clutch was fine, but I wanted to rip off the black scarf that basically covered the entire ensemble whilst exchanging the ankle-strap platform sandals by Prada for a more streamlined pair.

Shailene Woodley In Lyn Devon – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Shailene Woodley In Lyn Devon - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Nominated for Best Female Lead in ‘The Spectacular Now,’ Shailene Woodley was also among the ‘it’ list at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted at Santa Monica Beach in California on Saturday (March 1).

After her peachy-keen dress at the Publicists Awards Luncheon, the starlet showed off a textured teal look from Lyn Devon’s Spring 2014 collection.

Taking on a slight boho vibe, especially when worn with Casadei flat sandals, the button-accented cropped top and high-waist skirt lost some of its more impeccably chic lookbook appeal.

One too many inches of midriff were on display here, and the skirt—now floor-scraping—seemed poorly fitting. If I were to really nitpick, the pendant necklace was also a bothersome distraction.

A few tweaks here and there, and this could have been a standout, cool-girl statement.

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?

Paula Patton attended the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach on Saturday (March 1) in Santa Monica, California.

The ‘About Last Night’ actress was all smiles as she hit the red carpet; glowing in a bright yellow mini Lorena Sarbu dress with a floral lace overlay.

Nude Christian Louboutin pumps and Anito Ko jewels accessorized her look, with neutral makeup providing the finishing touch.

While we love Paula, we’ve often criticized her style; but this is, without question, one of her best red carpet looks in a while. Fancy that.

Krysten Ritter In Versace – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Krysten Ritter In Versace - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Krysten Ritter vamped up the blue carpet at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards, hosted on Saturday (March 1) at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California.

Striking a perfect pose, the actress delivered a dose of ferocious style to the proceedings in a Versace Fall 2013 bodycon frock, polished up with a pair of gold metallic Rubert Sanderson ‘Elba’ pumps.

Peppered at the front and centre with an abstracted yellow animal print, the edgy dress also featured curve-enhancing black vinyl at the sides and back.

She balanced the sultry punk look with a sleek black Tyler Alexandra clutch and a simple approach to hair and makeup, wearing wavy black locks and a simple blush-nude lip. No need to overdo the edgy effect, after all.

Do you like the drama she brought to the event?
