Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Zoe Kravitz In Chloé

Best Dressed Award
Zoe Kravtiz is very much the poster child for the Film Independent Spirit Awards, so it was not a surprise to see her grace the red carpet at the LA event.

What I did find surprising is how much I loved her look.

Normally I tired of her boho vibe, but if her Chloé Spring 2010 look is to be considered boho it was a least done in a modern, fresh, less contrived way.

Zoe was definitely one of my favourites of the night as she looked so soft and elegant.

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Mia Wasikowska In Rodarte

Wash Out Award
Mia Wasikowska arrived on the red carpet at the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards wearing quite an edgy look.

Unfortunately it doesn’t work for me.

You may think I going to groan about the tights, but on this occasion I’m more disappointed with the colour of her Rodarte Fall 2009 dress.

The grey totally washes her out. Had she worn slightly more visible make-up this wouldn’t have been the case.

This is a shame because she’s one of the few I think could pull off Rodarte.

I also think she should’ve followed Carey Mulligan’s lead by freshening up her pixie haircut.

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Vera Farmiga In Marchesa

Best Modification Award
Vera Farmiga made the right choice at the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards.

As much as I love gowns on a red carpet, the Spirit Awards isn’t about that. It’s more casual, so I love that Vera shortened her Marchesa Resort 2010 red dress to make it more event appropriate.

I don’t however like her peep-toes as they almost blend into her skin-tone.

Yes it would’ve been too matchy matchy, but I would’ve preferred red heels on this occasion.

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Maggie Gyllenhaal In Lanvin

Maverick Award
Maggie Gyllenhaal arrived at the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards wearing Lanvin.

Maggie doesn’t conform to red carpet rules, she makes them up as she goes along.

As much as it’s my pet peeve to wear a dress without support, it would be impossible to wear a bra with this Lanvin Spring 2010 asymmetrical dress.

It would however be possible to wear this dress without tights. I guess with the thigh-high split Maggie didn’t want to feel too exposed, but then why wear the dress?

Despite that Maggie does look great, but I still feel that this Spring 2010 Lanvin collection always looks better on the runway than the red carpet.

It always looks so flat on the red carpet.

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Mo’Nique In Tadashi Shoji

Dude Back Up & Please Shave Your Legs If You’re Not Gonna Wear A Gown Award
It’s sweet that Mr Mo’Nique is on the red carpet to support his wife, but dude back up so we can see her dress.

Yes he’s there to support her, yes he’s her rock, but it’s her time to shine so let’s see that dress and let him support you a few paces to the side.

It’s like Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise all over again.

From what I can see her beige Tadashi Shoji Spring 2010 dress is beautiful on her.

I like the length and those sparkling heels are gorgeous, but why OH WHY, would you wear a dress of this length if you’re not going to shave your legs?

Runway To 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards – Dana Delany In Prada

Fails To Pull It Off Award
Dana Delany loves Prada. She often wears this brand to major award ceremonies.

To the 2010 Film Independent Spirit Awards last night in LA she wore a Prada Resort 2010 tribal print dress.

As much as I love the dress and she accessorized really well – some may think too matchy matchy – she fails to pull off this complicated look imo.

I feel like she wore this too look hip, rather than because she liked it or because it suited her because it doesn’t.

2010 Film Independent Spirit Award – Gabourey Sidibe

Finally Award
Gabourey Sidibe walked the red carpet at the 2010 Film Independent Spirits Awards.

I haven’t particular like many of Gabourey’s red carpet looks.

On this occasion she wears a nice black dress with a pleated satin bodice.

I don’t believe her arms are her best feature and on this occasion she wears a black cropped cardigan.

2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards

I love this awards show, as we get so see more a more eclectic and colourful red carpet.

This year the stars didn’t disappoint. Jessica Alba looked so lovely in a stylish lilac Christian Dior Spring 2009 dress, with tan Christian Louboutin Mary Janes.

Her make-up is light, and compliments her dress.

This look is so feminine, I adore her here.

I really like this navy and red striped Michael Kors dress Cameron Diaz is wearing, but – not for the first time – I really don’t think this suits her.

I think it’s way too conservative for her, as she is usually more playful on the red carpet.

Is this the case of a new boyfriend cramping her style? We have seen this before.

And will she please, oh please get those roots done asap.

Lucy Liu opted for a fuschia pink Lanvin Spring 2009 satin dress.

She wore her dress with a clear belt, as not to block the draping effect on her dress.

The look was complete beige Jimmy Choo heels, and a Roger Vivier clutch that matched her dress.

♥

Claire Danes wore a two tone Lanvin Spring 2009 strapless bustier dress, with a gathered skirt.

She decorated her dress with a nude necklace, which was also from the Lanvin Spring 2009 collection.

This is such a sophisticated look for Claire, although I am not sure about the black heels.

Post-pregnancy Michelle Monaghan, continues to rock my world.

She was one of my favourites at this event wearing a Versace Spring 2009 baby blue mini dress, with a bell-shaped skirt, and jeweled strappy sandals.

I expected to see more of this collection on the red carpet other than 3 pieces – January Jones, Gwyneth Paltrow & Michelle – we have seen.

Kerry Washington looks absolutely outstanding in this electric blue Marchesa dress, with an embellished neckline. Although like Claire, I’m not so sure about her shoe choice.

This is a nice Rodarte Spring 2006 dress, but Anne Hathaway is a young girl, who should be experimenting a lot more.

The whole look is too blah. I’m not excited about it at all.

With her last two looks failing to impress, I’m very scared for what she might bring to the Oscars red carpet.

Taraji P. Henson on the other hand continues to impress.

Her Burberry LBD is decorated with embroidered details on the skirt to give it a tiering effect, and this same detail appears on the top of the dress.

She completes her look with black gladiator Pedro Garcia sandals, and a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2008 necklace.

I’m very excited to see what she wears at the Oscars.

Zooey Deschanel adds a black velvet bow to her Lela Rose Spring 2009 shimmering blue dress, which match her eyes.

Her cute clutch was from Moschino, and her heels are Ferragamo.

Michelle Williams wore a simple simple navy, grey and white striped sheath Chloé Resort 2009 dress, with black pumps.

Padma Lakshmi is so incredibly beautiful.

Last night she wore a Giorgio Sant Angelo jersey dress from Decades Inc, which had a white tile pailette detail cascading down the bodice.

I know many of you are not Teri Hatcher fans, but I think she has been having a lot more good days than bad recently.

Her LBD from Monique Lhuillier’s Fall 2009 collection with the sheer panels, is very sophisticated, yet sexy. Plus she doesn’t opt for a predictable black shoe, instead she wore a satin champagne Brian Atwood peep-toe heel.

Her pink clutch is Jimmy Choo and her jewels are by Piaget.

Mena Suvari added a multitude of colour to the red carpet, with this Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2009 maxi dress.

She wore her dress with a larger tan belt, which is thinner than the one which appeared on the runway.

She wore Piaget jewels to complete her look.

This is not the best look for Elizabeth Banks. The skirt is fine, but the rest……

I should be thankful that this Azzedine Alaia chocolate brown dress Penelope Cruz wore is not black, but I am still mourning the loss of her fantastic style, to see this as a positive.

Yikes. The coat Rachel Weisz is wearing doesn’t cover up enough of her floral dress.

I love the fearless Sandra Oh on the red carpet. She opting for this fuschia pink tunic Jenni Kayne Resort 2009 dress with black pumps.

Sandra is already on trend for Fall 09, as we saw a lot of this colour at New York Fashion Week.

Look who is back, not surprisingly wearing black. Ellen Page.

Rose Byrne’s white Calvin Klein Spring 2009 dress, is a perfect fit for her.

She keeps the minimalist look going by opting for plain silver pumps and no jewelery.

The shoulder pads on Mary-Kate Olsen’s Balmain dress are too dominate for my liking. It makes her appear to have no neck.

Her beige heels are by Proenza Schouler.

On the plus-side, she looks very healthy.

2008 Film Independent’s Spirit Awards Red Carpet

I guess Angelina Jolie is pregnant then.

She wore a black, silk-crepe dress by Western Costume, with Gara Danielle Fine Jewelry gold and diamond snake ring, and Christian Louboutin shoes.

One hot mama.

Speaking of pregnant…look how stunning Cate Blanchett is in Vera Wang.

I can’t wait to see what she wears tomorrow.

This Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2008 ensemble would not be easy to pull off, because the colour are so strong.

Many would have stayed away from this look, but not Kerry Washington. She looks gorgeous.

Eva Mendes looks happy and healthy in a grey turtleneck Calvin Klein sheath dress with a yellow clutch.

Jada Pinkett-Smith is having a great week on the red carpet. This ivory silk Michael Kors Pre-Fall 2008 cocktail dress was the perfect choice, along with her yellow clutch.

Ellen Page sticks to her usual black with a white shirt.

I pray she wears colour tomorrow at the Oscars….and a dress for that matter.

Sienna Miller looks beautiful even without make-up, wearing a back haltered Monique Lhuillier lace cocktail dress.

The dress has a beautiful neckline of organza ruffles and a bow.

Tang Wei arrived in an artistic print dress from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2008 collection.

No one bores me more on the red carpet than Kate Beckinsale.

She, like her dress, have no personality.

I love the print on Eliza Dushku kimono sleeve dress. Like most of the others on this red blue carpet, she did not opt for black.
