the 2011 independent spirit awards were held in los angeles over the weekend and i gotta say, it is rare to see so many well-dressed women in the same place at the same time. the awards are a lot more laid-back than the golden globes or the oscars so they allow the attendees to get a little fun with their clothes.
let’s take a look at the top 5 best dressed women at the awards
:: nicole kidman ::
nicole kidman chooses the perfect dress for herself. this red lace l’wren scott fits her like a dream. i don’t remember seeing her looking this good in a very long time. the color is stunning on her but what i love the most about this look are those charlotte olympia shoes. she looks like a dream
:: kerry washington::
ms. kerry washington looks stylish with this mix of prints by dolce and gabbana. florals seem to be huge right now, they always are for spring. what i love is that the sheath-like silhoutte of this look takes it into the sophistication territory. j’adore. the perfect addition? some leopard print of course. love everything about this. right down to the sleek hair.
eva mendes has the most beautiful skin tone i have ever seen. and of course this uncanny ability to make anything look insanely sexy. she wears a s/s2011 chanel dress with a breezy, beachy feel to it. she looks relaxed and chic and i am in love with her turquoise pierre hardy heels. everyone seems to have really stepped up their shoe game for 2011.
zoe saldana is always one of my favorites at any event. she always gives us something different without being too insane (i.e rihanna) i absolutely adore her in this s/s 2011 dolce and gabbana frock. the leopard print is perfectly offset with clashing white embroidery. i love the bright coral brian atwood pumps, i know the dress is attention-grabbing by itself but the shoes make this look sooo much more interesting. they are the perfect addition. red lips work flawlessly with zoe’s complexion. this is totally something i would wear.
:: natalie portman::
BEST dressed of the night y’all. i am loving natalie portman in this custom made givenchy couture dress. it is perhaps the perfect maternity dress. i love the combination of beige and yellow. the silhoutte, the colors, the detailing all look perfect on natalie. a gorgeous yellow givenchy clutch and nude stella mccartney pumps finish off the look.
