The 2013 Independent Spirit Awards have rolled out the red — make that pink — carpet to welcome a cool crew of starlets, including Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana, and Salma Hayek, dressed for the LA sunshine (palm trees and beach background included) and an afternoon's worth of honouring the industry's best indie film projects. Among this year's nominees? Silver Linings Playbook's Jennifer Lawrence, who stunned in Lanvin, is up for best actress, and a Stella McCartney-clad Rashida Jones is being recognised for her first screenplay, Celeste and Jesse Forever.

Nina Dobrev went playful — and gilded — on the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards pink carpet, courtesy of an embellished white Michael Kors shorts set. The Vampire Diaries star skipped the cocktail-dress approach in favour of a leg-baring look, but kept the glamour fully intact via the top's sparkly texture and a shiny gold Michael Kors belt. As for everything else? Dobrev kept it simple. Namely, she polished off her outfit with a beachy ponytail, one lone H.Stern ring, and matching gold strappy Jimmy Choo sandals. Does she get your vote?
Best Actress nominee Jennifer Lawrence stepped out at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards in a sleek black Lanvin number, complete with a flirty bow-tie waist, sexy side cut-outs, a revealing back, and a warrior-like silver collar. Unlike her previous red-carpet fare, Lawrence skipped the all-out glamour of a princess gown and instead stunned in something much more body conscious. She paired her skin-baring look with a slicked-back bun, a soft pink lip, and metallic-heeled black sandals. How did she do?
Presenter Kerry Washington never disappoints with her penchant for bold styling, and this green floral-embossed Giambattista Valli sheath at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards is no exception to the rule. The Django Unchained and Scandal actress let the girlie, albeit vibrant, ensemble take centre stage, only accessorising with a gold watch, a cream-coloured woven clutch, and matching beaded floral pumps. With so much pattern play at hand, Washington kept her hair down and casual with minimal makeup. Are you a fan?
Zoe Saldana stood out in a boldly striped Dolce & Gabbana number at the 2013 Independent Spirit Awards this afternoon. While the green and white stripes may be the outfit's most eye-catching detail, it's worth taking note of the dress's subtle rose embroidery, too. The brunette beauty did right by styling the look with a minimalist's approach, only adding on a few dainty rose-themed accessories. To finish, she kept her hair down and wavy, then rounded it all out with a pair of crisp white (and green-lined) pointy-toe pumps. What's the verdict?
Nina Dobrev looked sexy in a sequined Michael Kors outfit for the Spirit Awards in LA today, making the most of the warm weather in a pair of white shorts. She has been making the rounds this award season in support of The Perks of Being a Wallflower, which she stars in alongside Emma Watson and Ezra Miller. Nina walked the red carpet at the Critics' Choice Awards and SAGs last month, and is already celebrating a successful outing at the Spirit Awards this afternoon. She tweeted from inside the event to announce that Perks of Being a Wallflower won the award for best first feature, and shared a photo of herself posing with the trophy.
Bradley Cooper was in good spirits at the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, CA, today, sporting a stylish three-piece suit. The actor joined Bryan Cranston on the carpet for a pleasant exchange that had both actors laughing, then caught up with his Silver Linings Playbook co-star Chris Tucker. Their film is up for several big awards today, including best feature, best screenplay, and best actor for Bradley.
Silver Linings Playbook and Beasts of the Southern Wild are the only best feature nominees that are also up for a best picture Oscar tomorrow. Bradley is also in the running for the Academy's best actor award, and he'll face off with Daniel Day-Lewis, Hugh Jackman, Joaquin Phoenix, and Denzel Washington for the honour.
