Ladies of the Independent Spirit Awards Save Their Good Outfits for the Oscars

Seems fashion at the Independent Spirit Awards is a little more casual, probably because many of these lovely ladies will be saving their good looks for the big red carpet event this evening. Most of the women had on bland neutral colors, and ex-stripper director Diablo Cody’s red dress was one of the few bright moments of the evening’s clothing choices.

Angelina wore simple black, with this season’s biggest accessory — the baby bump. Eva Mendes looked great in a grey turtleneck shift, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her look horrible, even right before she headed to rehab.

Darling of the evening Ellen Page looked a little more like Ellen DeGeneres than usual. Now, I LOVE me some Ellen Page, but she tends to look awkward on the red carpet. She must feel very comfortable in those (very unfashionable) clothes, because she looks much more confident in these duds — and that’s something always in style on the red carpet.
