While Hollywood is so busy preparing for The Oscars, stars still managed to arrive at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards held at Santa Monica Beach in California on Saturday, February 23.
A lot of actresses donned stunning gowns and dresses. It’s like they’re all set for the Oscars in their outfits! Here are seven that we find interesting. Tell us who’s your best dressed celeb of the night, okay?
Let’s first have a look at Jennifer Lawrence, who bagged the Best Actress award at the event. She has had some hits and misses, fashion-wise; and I must say that this dress should be part of her hits. It looked perfect on her, and I’m glad the side boob isn’t exposed as much.
The dress, which is from Lanvin’s Spring 2013 collection, is edgy and playful. It features crystal-embellished choker, which is on-trend these days, as well as a wrap-around skirt with asymmetrical hem and obi-like belt.
She finished her look with Giuseppe Zanotti sandals, which feature metal heels that complemented her dress well.

Opting for a head-to-toe floral look was Kerry Washington, who wore Giambattista Valli fall 2012 couture dress. It’s interesting because the skirt and top come in two different shades of green. She must be in the spring spirit, huh? To complete her calmly look are her Christian Louboutin ‘Sissi’ Pumps, which also feature floral design.
Do you love this look or do you think it’s too much?

Camila Alves surely matched the pink carpet as she donned a pink (or coral) Escada gown, which features beaded round neckline, keyhole and thigh-high slit at the center:

Looking cute and charming on the pink carpet, Brittany Snow wore a sweet-looking ensemble which included a Naeem Khan spring 2013 tulle and lace embroidered dress. Her nude sandals by Jimmy Choo and light make-up completed her girly look:

Unlike most celebrities at the event, Zoe Saldana looked simple, fun and playful but very appropriate for the location. She was wearing a white/green striped dress from Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2013 collection. This dress, including her white Casadei ‘Blade’ pumps are definitely perfect for a cruise!

Showing her sophisticated look was Katie Aselton, who wore a black lace dress by Wes Gordon. The lace and silk tulle dress features sequin embellishments and embroideries. It also has a high neck, layered style and scalloped hem. It may be so last season but it still looks classic; however, for a beach location, I personally think it’s not appropriate:

Mary Elizabeth Winstead opted for an Emilio Pucci fall 2012 frock. It may be designed for fall as it also features long sleeves with cut-out at the shoulders, but the color is very summery. To complete the bright look, she carried a tangerine clutch and teamed the dress with wedges:
