Palm Springs: Angie In Elie Saab and Brad In Versace

Who: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Where: At the 23rd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala, as Brad was honoured with the Desert Palm Achievement Award in acting

Angelina Wearing: A greige pleated halterneck Elie Saab jumpsuit from the spring/summer 2011 ready-to-wear collection

Brad Wearing: Head-to-toe Versace in a black one-button suit

Verdict: Firstly, let me just say how excited I am about the up-coming award season, I always feel like the Palm Springs is the start of a very enjoyable few months. Secondly, I want to like what Angie is wearing but I just can’t get over how shapeless it is, but what I do love is the colour and the pleats, but most of all her tousled hair – simply divine.

Brad however is working his longer hair and dapper Versace suit – but is that a walking stick?? What happened there then?

Palm Springs: Jennifer Lawrence Wears Oscar de la Renta

Who: Actress Jennifer Lawrence

Where: At the 22nd Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Wearing: A black and azure posy print Oscar de la Renta dress from the spring/summer 2011 collection

Verdict: Most won’t recognise or have heard of Jennifer Lawrence, but seriously this actress is destined for big things and the Palm Springs Festival agreed with her taking home the Rising Star award.

Thank god for Oscar de la Renta seeing her brilliance and dressing her in this cocktail dress falling just below-the-knee, as the colour and silhouette looks amazing on her. For me though, it is the print of this OdlR gown which takes all the credit – it is divine!

Who: British actress Carey Mulligan who picked up the Breakthrough Performance Award

Where: At the 2011 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala at the Palm Springs Convention Centre

Wearing: A simple-yet-elegant Prada printed cocktail paired with Cartier jewels *well they are the sponsor of course*

Verdict: I love the silhouette of this cocktail dress, and it seems to be Carey’s go-to-style, why not when she looks this good in it. I must admit though I am hoping for a lot more when it comes to the Golden Globes, Baftas and of course the Oscars – maybe something sexy, revealing and totally far-removed from her comfort zone. I seriously don’t think it will happen though.
