Best of the 2016 Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet: The Ladies

28 Feb

Happy Oscars Day! What better way to kick off this red carpet extravaganza than with a rundown of the many amazing looks from one of the highlights in this super stacked award season.

The Independent Spirit Awards take place in a marquee on the beach in Santa Monica and so it has a very different vibe to what we will be seeing later today. Bold color and print reign supreme with a more chilled out aesthetic; here are our favorite looks from the ladies yesterday.Brie LarsonBrie Larson has been crushing it all year and this intricately beaded Chanel number is a contender for ultimate best (with her Golden Globes dress as a close second). Another win for Larson – her speech is definitely worth a watch – and it is likely that she will be adding another to her awards shelf this evening. As I mentioned on Friday, Larson is on my highly anticipated Oscar dress list.Cate BlanchettThird year in a row for Cate Blanchett at the Independent Spirit Awards (nominee in 2014 and presenter in 2015) and another triumphant frock choice. The Spring ’16 Gucci collection is pretty much the perfect for Blanchett and this event and as with Larson I cannot wait to see what she will be wearing tonight.Nicki ReedA strong 1970s influence for Nikki Reed’s Etro gown and the color/pattern mix is the kind of bathroom decor I dream of (this is a good thing I promise). Bonus points for the relaxed fishtail braid.Cynthia NixonAnother print delight and supporting actress nominee Cynthia Nixon has got the whole fancy daytime event at the beach thing down.Emilia ClarkeAt the recent Michael Kors Collection Fall 16 RTW show there was a whole lot of amazing collars on display and this dress is one I had saved in my “things I would definitely wear” folder (yes I have one of those). While I would stick with it buttoned up (as it was on the runway) the cuffs are much better this way and Emilia Clarke looks great. Excellent bag choice too.Mya TaylorMya Taylor made history by becoming the first transgender actress to win an Independent Spirit Award (or any major film awards) and her speech is an essential watch. Another fantastic dress which is giving me all the 1970s feelings and a sparkly patterned delight.Rachel McAdamsRachel McAdams has stepped up her red carpet game this awards season and this Solace London ensemble is equal parts grand and simple. Minimal makeup and fuss free hair adds to the chilled out vibe as this dress could be overwhelming at an event like this if the overall styling was different. Kate McKinnonIndependent Spirit Awards co-host Kate McKinnon sounds the #LadySuitWatch2016 klaxon and looks spectacular. Thanks to this one scene Carol parody I now want to see Kate McKinnon in a feature length version.Rooney Mara sunglassesGoing a little Gatsby with her sunglasses choice and Rooney Mara looking all kinds of relaxed out in the sun while wearing the most Rooney Mara dress in Hugo Boss. Rooney and CateA change in glasses and I think I just found my new Twitter cover photo.

Stay tuned as we’ve got dudes in suits and couples coming up next!
