Independent Spirit Awards Red Carpet

It’s Oscar’s Day, everybody! Let’s recap the fashion at the Independent Spirit Awards and get ready for Hollywood’s prom tonight!

Nicole Kidman in L’Wren Scott

Another knockout look. Nicole has really been bringing it lately. It’s amazing how much better she looks with a smile on her face rather than her usual ice-queen glare. Love the dress and love the shoes.

Natalie Portman in Givenchy

She looks kinda sweaty and uncomfortable, but duh – she’s PREGNANT. The fact that she hasn’t toppled over because of that belly is pretty astounding. This dress it cute, but it would be way cuter without the yellow sash right under her boobs, which is about as unflattering as it gets.

Mia Wasikowska in Rodarte for Opening Ceremony

Beautiful at first glance, but the more I look at it, the more it looks like a cheap Chanel knockoff made out of cotton balls and toilet paper. Also, wear makeup. Just a thought. (But the shoes are cool.)

Rosario Dawson in Burberry Prorsum

Beautiful but boring. Not loving the shoes with that dress.

Zoe Saldana in Dolce & Gabbana

LOVE. I loved this series of little embellished, funkified prairie-girl dresses from Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2011 collection, and this one is particularly awesome. Brilliant choice of shoe – that salmon-saffron color is so hot and really pops with Zoe’s skin color. Not loving the hair, and definitely hating the lipstick, but overall, nice work.

Jennifer Lawrence in Dolce & Gabbana

Another Dolce & Gabbana dress, but this one actually looks like a slutty country western saloon girl on her wedding day. The tacky turquoise jewelry doesn’t help.

Kerry Washington in Dolce & Gabbana

The print is just a little too much for my tastes. Giant florals are hard to pull off, especially when the print on top is different from the print on the bottom of the dress. The red shoes, berry lips, and leopard print purse are just too much. The result is overwhelming and distracting.

Michelle Trachtenberg in Pamella Roland

Super-cute trench, but it makes her look about thirty pounds heavier than she actually is.

Gillian Jacobs

Cute, but I’d have gone for either the red shoes or the red purse, not both.

Eva Mendes in Chanel

Usually, a big smile and a confident pose means you’ll look good no matter what you’re wearing. Eva Mendes is clearly the exception to that rule, looking nothing but foolish in her gauzy, abstract dress and shoes that really don’t match.

Kate Walsh in Max Mara Elegante

Nice dress, love the watch, but this is too boring for words. And Kate, go back to being a redhead! You were infinitely more beautiful as a ginger.

Anne Heche in D&G

A beyond-gorgeous dress to wear on the boardwalk on a summer night, but at a red carpet event in February? Not so much.

Amanda Peet in Nina Ricci

Too pain-stakingly little-girly. You’re nearly 40 years old, Amanda – leave looks like this to Hailee Steinfeld and Dakota Fanning.

Vera Farmiga

Almost hilariously bad. I hate every single accessory and the dress itself.
