Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Cate Blanchett took to the ‘blue’ carpet at the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California today (March 1).

The ‘Blue Jasmine’ actress and Best Female Lead nominee put forth a fashion-forward entrance, donning a Roksanda Ilincic Fall 2014 felt dress that fused large, colour-block panels of burgundy and sand accented with a cornflower-blue flower shape.

Cinched with the shine of a significant, gold metallic belt, which obviously precluded the need for jewels, the relaxed, above-the-ankle silhouette took on a mod urban appeal.

Creamy nude Nicholas Kirkwood cutout sandals put the directional look on casually chic ground, whereas a metallic pair would have taken it to a dressier level. I’m just glad she skipped the runway footwear for this occasion.

With her hair loosely pulled back into a fishtail braid and with barely the slick of makeup to her name, I love how effortlessly Cate pulls off this trendsetting look, taking it into timelessly elegant territory, as well.

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga – Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Zoe Kravitz In Balenciaga - Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014

Zoe Kravitz was back on the red, ahem blue, carpet for the 2014 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach in Santa Monica, California today (March 1).

After showing us another more colourful side to her fashion personality at the Vanity Fair Campaign Hollywood Kick Off event yesterday, the starlet once again threw aside her favoured black hue in exchange for a style-forward Balenciaga Spring 2014 white number.

Speckled with a flurry of black floral embellishment, the off-the-shoulder top with a tulip-shaped peplum reminded me of the beginnings of a romantic gown.

Of course, that’s when Balenciaga designer Alexander Wang keeps us on our toes and teams the top with a structured pair of leggy shorts for a youthful, modern and slightly unexpected look.

Never too far from her rocker-girl edge, she accessorized with glittery black peep-toe booties and statement black earrings.

Independent Spirit Awards Menswear Round Up

Independent Spirit Awards

While many of the men in attendance at the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday opted for the usual dark suits, several of the actors celebrated the warm temperatures with light colours. The event was held in Santa Monica, California.

Bradley Cooper: Now here’s something you don’t see much of anymore. Bradley is wearing an Armani three-button, grey suit. He matched his suit with a tan waistcoat, a white shirt and distressed brown shoes. I like the colour combination in the look, but he doesn’t look very polished. His pants are too long and those shoes don’t do his suit justice.

Andy Samberg: As the host of the show Andy looked incredibly dapper in a perfectly tailored tuxedo that featured a green, shawl lapel jacket. Under the tux, Andy wore a white French cuff shirt, black studs and matching cuff links. He styled his it all with a black bow tie, a white pocket square, a white flower on his lapel and Bruno Magli shoes.

Matthew McConaughey: Nominated for his role as the lead in ‘Killer Joe,’ Matthew showed off his trim body in a more casual outfit by Dolce & Gabbana. He wore a charcoal coloured waistcoat with matching pants and a striped shirt. The highlight of Matthew’s getup was the pop of colour from his Tod’s blue shoes. He also accessorized with a stylish sunglasses and a great timepiece on his wrist.
