Film Independent Spirit Awards: My Three Best Dressed Actresses

spirit-awards-red-carpetThe Film Independent Spirit Awards rarely disappoints, I’m not taking 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. 

First look I loved has to be Julianne Moore in this vibrant green embellished Christian Dior spring/summer 2015 Couture mini. I love the colour, green is so great on her, the Sixties vibes of the shift silhouette as well as the heavy all-over beading. This is a class look, it is dressy with all the sparkles, while still be fun and experimental.

Next up is, I can’t wear anything not god-dam cool, Emma Stone, who just looks incredible in this gorgeous midnight guipure lace Monique Lhuillier a-line dress with cap sleeves and cut-out inserts from the autumn/winter 2015 collection. Basically, this dress is hot off the runway, and Emma is rocking the hell out it. I am a huge fan of hers, she always seems to go for girlie and sweet, while still having a cool edge and this is another great look from her. I have high hopes for tomorrow at the Oscars. 


So my final best dressed look has to be Kerry Washington. I have to own up, I am addicted to Scandal so I am pretty much obsessed with Kerry, and even though I do think that this Balenciaga spring/summer 2015 dress might be a little too dressy for the Spirit Awards I had to include as she is so back to her best on the red carpet. Kerry has had a little dry patch on the red carpet lately, but this look shows that she is back to her best, I love how unusual neckline, the gorgeous embellished detailing around the hips, and the sheer sleeves are just divine. Come on whether this is too dressy or not, this dress deserved a red carpet.

Did you have a favourite from the 2015 Film Independent Spirit Awards?

Film Independent Spirit Awards: Jennifer Lawrence In Lanvin


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


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.

Film Independent Spirit Awards: Zoe Saldana In Dolce & Gabbana


Who: Zoe Saldana

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

Wearing: A green and white striped Dolce & Gabbana dress from the spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with white pointed-toe heels

Verdict: What I love about the Independent Spirit Awards is the casual nature of the event held by the beach, it is in perfect contrast to that of The Oscars held tonight.

The Star Trek star gets her look spot on with this casual, deck-chair striped dress and I love it, the colour is perfect for her, and I love how the lace-effect pattern shows through on the green.

Spirit Awards: Michelle Trachtenberg in Pamella Roland

Who: Gossip Girl’s actress Michelle Trachtenberg

Where: At the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards hosted by Jameson Irish Whiskey at Santa Monica Beach

Wearing: A belted stone tile Pamella Roland jacquard coat dress with short pleated sleeves and back box pleat from the spring/summer 2011 collection, teamed with studded black booties, a gold clutch and a jewelled cocktail ring

Verdict: I actually like this look on her, part of me was like it is a little too conservative for the Spirit Awards, and the other half of me is saying well at least she stands out!

I love the stone tile print on this chic coat dress, it really is an elegant look for Michelle. Maybe her recent trip to New York Fashion Week helped her pick out this. I like that she has tried to make it more youthful with the studded booties and the jewelled ring, and her neutral make-up works perfectly.

Overall, not the best dressed, but I can appreciate where she was coming from, for me this is one of the best looks I have seen on her in a while.

Spirit Awards: Zoe Saldana in Leopard Print and Lace

Who: Zoe Saldana

Where: At the 2011 Film Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, California

Wearing: A leopard print Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with embellished white lace detailing teamed with coral Brian Atwood Maniacs

Verdict: Wow, what an outfit, I am not one to normally love leopard print but this dress looks stunning on her. Maybe it is the combination of the leopard print, lace and those striking coral heels, but this is a great look on her from head-to-toe.

I always love the vibe of the Spirit Awards as it is the night before the Oscars and the stars on the red carpet can have a bit more fun with their outfit choices, and Zoe got it spot on with this number.

Gorgeous – easily my best dressed of the night!!
