Film Independent Spirit Awards: My Three Best Dressed Actresses

Film Independent Spirit Awards: My Three Best Dressed Actresses

The Film Independent Spirit Awards rarely disappoints, I’m not talking about the winner’s of the awards, but of the red carpet, I love that the actresses opt for more relaxed looks than we are going to see at the Oscars. Fashion should be fun and I do adore that it is always such a stark contrast from the up-coming Oscars. I know I am all about full-on gowns, but I can appreciate that this award show has a different vibe and it gives the actresses a chance to try out something new.

Film Independent Spirit Awards: Jennifer Lawrence In Lanvin

Spirit-awards-Jennifer-lawrence

Who: Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach, sponsored by Jameson

Wearing: A black Lanvin dress featuring a wrap skirt with drop hem, an obi style belt tied into a bow and a strappy cut-out back, which was finished off with a silver crystallised choker-style collar, teamed with black ankle strap heels

Verdict: This is the first dress in a while I have actually thought of Jennifer Lawrence as being 22-years-old, this dress has a youthful, fun vibe to it with the striking collar, the wrap-style skirt, and the asymmetrical hem, plus I am loving that it is a little risky with the side straps and open back.

But is this little black dress a little too polished and smart for the relaxed Independent Spirit Awards? I don’t think so, Jennifer is the toast of Hollywood at the moment and I love that she could have worn something less refined, less fashion-forward, that was more causal and mature looking – with this dress she had fun, and she looks comfortable and sexy, which is a great combination.

I am also in love with her flawless barley-there make-up and that simple top-knot – finished off this look perfectly – all I can say is roll on her Oscar look tonight!!!Spirit-awards-J-lawrence[Pics: by Dimitrios Kambouris/WireImage for Jameson]

Film Independent Spirit Awards: Nina Dobrev Wearing Michael Kors

Who: Nina Dobrev

Where: At the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach, sponsored by Jameson

Wearing: A Michael Kors runway look from the spring/summer 2013 collection, featuring a white sleeveless top with gold embroidery, worn with white tailored shorts, and a gold belt, teamed with gold strappy Jimmy Choo heels and a H Stern ring

Verdict: Check out Nina’s pins – seriously wow – this shorts and top look is divine styling. I love how simple the combination is, which is perfect for the laid-back vibe of the beach setting at the Independent Spirit Awards, while it still has the glitz of an award ceremony look with the gold accessories and that striking embroidered top.

As well as being perfectly dressed for the event, I adore the youthful nature of this look, which when I interviewed her stylist Ilaria Urbinati she said was an important part of putting looks together for the 24-year-old Vampire Diaries star, and I certainly think her young fan-base will be trying to recreate this gorgeous look.

Film Independent Spirit Awards: Kerry Washington In Giambattista Valli

Spirit-awards-Kerry-washinghton

Who: Kerry Washington

Where: At the 2013 Film Independent Spirit Awards at Santa Monica Beach, sponsored by Jameson

Wearing: A two-tone floral Giambattista Valli dress from the autumn/winter 2012 Haute Couture collection, teamed with floral printed Christian Louboutin heels, a blush coloured textured Bottega Veneta clutch, and a gold watch

Verdict: I am seriously growing a girl crush on Kerry Washington, lately her red carpet choices have been so gorgeous, sometimes a little daring, but always pretty and this head-to-toe floral look is no different.

I love that it is colourful, perfect for the relaxed vibe of the Independent Spirit Awards, while still maintaining that fashion-edge with the bold two-tone floral print, and I am in love with those Christian Louboutin floral heels – such great styling.

As well as being in love with her dress I also have bang envy – her fringe is incredible – perfectly frames her face.

After seeing this look I am super excited to see her tonight at The Oscars.
