I know everyone is focused on who will wear what at tonight's Oscars. But I thought the Independent Spirit Awards were worth a look.  As an event that celebrates the Independent film the fashions can be more relaxed.   So a lot of the dresses were shorter. But the other red carpet trends continue here... colour (red, emerald green), pale pink or nude dresses, one shoulder dresses and just a bit of men's wear. 

It was clearly cold in LA yesterday, and some stars worked the weather to their advantage and others just threw on any old coat. 

My favourite... Nicole Kidman in a red embroidered dress by  L’Wren Scott

LOVE! I've been luke warmish about Nicole's red carpet fashions this year. But this red dress knocks it out of the park.
