Independent Spirit Awards

The Independent Spirit Awards (Indies for short) took place on Saturday night and the stars turned up in their best "cool" togs. The Indies are traditionally very laid back and fun and the celebrities kept that in mind while dressing for the occassion.

Nicole Kidman wore a strawberry-red L'Wren Scott lace sheath with pointed pink kitten heels from Charlotte Olympia. She's playing with two trends here, red & pink and pointy pumps (they're totally in, according to Vogue), she looks nice but what's with the weird hands?

I looked at Natalie Portman and went "Awww!". The expectant actress looked absolutely gorgeous, and radiant in a Givenchy number with nude Stella McCartney heels - it's got a free-spirit thing going on, totally appropriate for the Indies.

Michelle Trachtenberg looked very sophisticated in a cream, wrap-dress by Pamela Rolland - cream/white dresses were popular at the Indies this year.

Mia Wasikowska (from Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland") wore a Rodarte dress with cutouts and Nicholas Kirkwood heels - it's a bit of a washout, some colour was needed! She should have gone for something like these
(Nicholas Kirkwoods) instead.

Eva Mendes wore a printed Chanel Resort dress with some cool aqua coloured Pierre Hardy heels and tons of pizzazz! Her confident pose and attitude alone sells this look.

Rosario Dawson went for an animal-print Burberry dress with slate grey Brian Atwoods. I'm not loving this dress much, the ruffles seem heavy somehow.

Both Zoe Saldana and Kerry Washington wore Dolce & Gabbana. The label is coming out with a lot of floral print and lacey stuff and these designs showcase that. I personally think it looks too busy but Zoe's slender frame makes the look work, she added some bright red Brian Atwoods to the mix.

Kerry's black, floral top & skirt were too loud for me, add to that the animal-print clutch, blunt bangs and red shoes - it's an overload!

Kate Walsh wore a cream, one-shoulder Max Mara number with pointy nude heels - kind of boring.

Vera Farmiga wore a printed red wrap dress with brown accessories in the form of the necklace, belt and shoes - it's very Indies style.
