The stars aligned in Santa Monica for the 33rd Film Independent Spirit Awards on March 3, 2018. Wonderwall.com is taking a look back at the biggest celeb style moments — the good, the bad and the fugly! — starting with one of the most divisive getups of the daytime award show… Kerry Washington donned an unexpectedly funky ensemble: a multicolored Missoni dress featuring a floral embroidered bustier top and a tiered fringe skirt with satin pink lace-up booties by Pedro Garcia. She also rocked a unique 'do…
Kerry Washington wore her hair in three sections with two long braids on the sides and one larger braid that ended in a ponytail down the middle. She completed her look with super-heavy eyeshadow, which was a little much for the daytime event, in our opinion.
Oh, hello! Actor and former football player Nnamdi Asomugha, Kerry Washington's husband, raised temperatures in a perfectly tailored Dolce & Gabbana suit, which he wore with a sparkly skinny tie and super-shiny loafers. Where has the "Scandal" star been hiding him?!
Saoirse Ronan's fun and flirty chartreuse embroidered Prada minidress — which featured intricate beading and sequin work along the neckline and sides — was perfect for the daytime award show. Let's take a closer look…
Saoirse Ronan, who rocked a lovely fresh-faced makeup look, accessorized with Piaget drop earrings with stones in various shades of pink, coordinating with the detailing along the neckline of her dress without getting too matchy-matchy.
Janelle Monae killed it in a Martha Medeiros ensemble — a high-waisted skirt with tiers of embroidered ruffles and a white lace top with a bejeweled neckline and an embroidered white tiger — which she wore with a leather choker, a wide-brim hat, mismatched earrings and Sylva & Cie rings while posing in the Bulleit Frontier Works Whiskey Experience during the Independent Spirit Awards. It was a major look, and we loved everything about it!
Margot Robbie walked on the wild side in a loose-fitting animal-print Louis Vuitton minidress with a zipper running down the front from the neckline to the hem. It may have looked simple from afar, but trust us, this dress deserves a closer look…
Upon closer inspection, it's clear how much craftsmanship went into Margot Robbie's Louis Vuitton minidress: The animal print is actually the product of sequins and intricate embroidery.
We love a man in a colorful suit! Kumail Nanjiani was easily one of the best dressed men of the day thanks to his ASOS ensemble: a blue plaid suit with a gray skinny tie.
We've been living for Danai Gurira lately, so we have to say: We were pretty disappointed with this sheer floral-print Rodarte ensemble — wide-leg pants with a matching long-sleeved blouse featuring a keyhole cutout on the bodice and a high, ruffled neckline with buttons. To make matters worse, her black embellished Roger Vivier pumps just didn't match. Bummer!
Alison Brie donned one of our favorite looks of the day: a sleeveless midi-length Ralph & Russo Couture dress with a cinched waist and tiered ruffles.
Elizabeth Olsen looked red-hot in a sheer three-quarter-sleeve Zuhair Murad dress with a high neckline, structured shoulders and floral embroidery. We especially loved the way it emphasized her waist. Unfortunately, this look lands among the misses for being way too sexy for a daytime event. For a nightclub opening? Absolutely. For the Indie Spirit Awards? No way.
Timothée Chalamet went a little too casual for our taste in an Off-White ensemble: an oversized button-down with fingertip-grazing cuffs, black skinny pants and white sneakers.
Greta Gerwig's sleeveless cornflower-blue Rosie Assoulin dress — which featured side cutouts and white lace embroidery across the waist and hemline — was exactly the kind of dress we expect to see on the actress-director. We liked it even more from the back…
Greta Gerwig's divisive open-back dress featured a tie across the shoulder blades and a high-low hemline, making it unexpectedly sexy.
Don't get us wrong, we truly loved Allison Williams' emerald Andrew Gn gown, which featured embroidered flowers on the bodice and a pleated skirt, as well as pleated sleeves and a tasseled tie at the waist. It was just all wrong — way too matronly for the 29-year-old actress and far too formal for the daytime event, which is one of the most casual award shows of the year. There was one part of her look that we were super-obsessed with, though…
Allison Williams' beaded tassel earrings by Piaget were perfection, tying together the emerald of her gown with her baby blues.
Chadwick Boseman looked sharp in Burberry — a blue polka-dot suit jacket and a black button-down, which he wore sans tie.
Allison Janney flaunted her figure in a curve-hugging custom long-sleeved Pamella Roland gown with open slashes across the neckline and midriff, proving that at age 58, there's nothing she can't do! Let's take a closer look at her styling…
We especially loved the way Allison Janney wore her hair in a low ponytail, creating the illusion that she'd chopped her locks into a bob. It gave the neckline of her dress some room to make a dramatic impression and showed off her massive Nikos Koulis chandelier earrings.
From the top up, we were all about Amanda Seyfried's white lace sleeveless Alexander McQueen dress, which featured a high neckline, two keyholes on the bust and side cutouts just above the waist. But the skirt's asymmetrical hemline just seemed unnecessary, and when coupled with the actress's messy ponytail, came off looking sloppy.
So chic! Sarah Silverman had a rockstar moment in an emerald velvet Hottie + Lord suit, which she wore with a bustier top.
Emily Ratajkowski's brown floral-print Brock Collection dress, which featured bizarre black velvet shoulder ties, made us very, very nervous. The newlywed model looked like she was one wrong move away from toppling out of the bodice. Yikes.
Sam Rockwell rocked a fantastic retro-inspired brown three-piece suit with a green geometric-print button-down, which he wore sans tie.
We loved Zoey Deutch's off-the-shoulder double-breasted suit jacket, but her extra-wide-leg culottes just looked silly. We think this Dior ensemble probably would've worked better if the actress had gone with fitted trousers — or if she were taller!
Warning: Dangerous curves ahead! Salma Hayek stunned in an extremely flattering black dress with a high neckline and red panels on the sides. If we were going to nitpick (we are), we'd say that we could've done without the two large pockets on the bodice, which give her a slightly top-heavy appearance.
Aubrey Plaza gave us major Wednesday Addams vibes in a black Miu Miu dress with a Peter Pan collar and velvet cap sleeves. It looked great on her, but at the end of the day, we couldn't get over how much this getup looked like a costume.
Leslie Bibb looked gorgeous in a sparkly green sequined jumpsuit that was super-fun without being too flashy.
Garrett Hedlund's ill-fitting black slacks, which gave him a top-heavy look, threw off the rest of his Strong Suit by Ilaria Urbinati Collection ensemble: a green jacket over a multicolor geometric-print button-down.
"Get Out" actress Betty Gabriel looked fantastic in a sheer embroidered lingerie-inspired Tadashi Shoji slip dress with a plunging neckline. Let's get a closer look at her hair and makeup…
Betty Gabriel's fresh-faced makeup look was one of our favorites of the day. We especially loved her pink lips and the voluminous curls in her 'do.
Molly Shannon donned one of her best looks ever: a curve-hugging navy blue gown with extra fabric at the shoulders.
Abigail Spencer donned a totally drab sleeveless maxidress with two ties on the bodice. We don't hate the dress, which is actually backless. But it's certainly nothing to write home about. Maybe if it had been in a bolder color, it would've been less of a snooze.
Mike Colter looked exceptionally handsome in a colorful geometric-print button-down, which he wore with a gunmetal suit for one of our favorite men's looks of the day.
