Saturday night was super chic for some of Hollywood’s brightest, with the Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala rolling out the first red carpet of note for 2015. There were fun frocks and elegant gowns, and I’ll admit: It was all a little more glam than the ripped jeans and moto boots I was wearing last night.
Reese Witherspoon picked a pearl-embroidered Michael Kors dress that, while slightly more luxurious than classic polka dots, had all the same cheer. The print’s an eternal favorite, but it can read too juvenile if done with frills and bows. Reese’s sharp sleeves keep it utterly grown-up.
Bright dresses like this vivid red-orange pick are sure to stand out—how stunning does Julianne Moore look? By now you probably know I’m an off-the-shoulder addict too, so this one especially wowed me.
Pregnant Blake Lively and Jessica Biel have been showing us major maternity style, and I’m happy that now we have Rosamund Pike to show perfect just-after-baby dressing. She welcomed a little one almost exactly one month ago and for her red carpet return, rocked a trapeze dress with a high hemline for a sexy flash of leg.
We watched The Theory of Everything this weekend (so good!), so I’m feeling especially in love with Felicity Jones. This elegant navy-and-black Monique Lhuillier was divine, and I sincerely hope there were no elevators around…
I guess I really have something for dresses that show shoulders, because Renee Bargh’s sleek pick was perfect to me. Rich velvet feels especially now, and the contrast of the high neck and below-the-knee hemline with those spots of skin is fantastic.
