Awash with bright colors, skin-baring silhouettes, and stylish suiting, the 2022 Independent Spirit Awards’ blue carpet saw the stars of our favorite films and series of the past year dressed to the nines.
With Julia Fox and Daisy Edgar-Jones making a case for extreme cutouts, Sydney Sweeney opted for her go-to brand, Miu Miu, while Lily James continued on her bombshell journey. The Underground Railroad’s Thuso Mbedu was the picture of elegance in her Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2021 Haute Couture peplum pant set as she took home the award for Best Female Performance in a New Scripted Series. Another actress to don a posh set of trousers was Kristen Stewart, sporting the bridal look from Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2022 collection from the house’s Métiers d’Art division. White and shimmering, contrasted with graphic black panels, Stewart’s look evoked an effortless feel.
Taylour Paige was celebrated for her role in A24’s Zola in a matching bolero and pencil skirt set while Maggie Gyllenhaal raked in the awards for The Lost Daughter for Best Director, Best Feature, and Best Screenplay in a Gucci set that can only be described as an absolute power play. As women are famously underrepresented as filmmakers, Gyllenhaal’s oversized structural shoulders served as the perfect fit for her directorial debut’s big wins.
From Daveed Diggs’ rainbow Moschino, Taika Waititi’s salmon colored Dzojchen, and Andrew Garfield’s Valentino, suiting was bright and playful on the carpet. Energized and refreshing, these stars spiced up classic suit styles.
Held in Santa Monica hosted by Hollywood couple, Pam & Tommy’s Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally (of Will & Grace fame), and honoring Shiva Baby, Passing, and Zola, the ceremony also gave fans a reunion between The White Lotus‘ Murray Bartlett and Sydney Sweeney while celebrating independent projects.
Here, GRAZIA USA has rounded up the very best looks of the 2022 Independent Spirit Awards.
