The Palm Springs International Film Festival is celebrating its 25th year of bringing Hollywood to the desert, and with this year’s honorees including Sandra Bullock, Matthew McConaughey and the cast of American Hustle, we were treated to some stellar fashion moments on the red carpet at the Awards Gala presented by Cartier at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Jan. 4.
Our fashion highlight was definitely Sandra Bullock’s pink and orange Alex Perry dress with floral lace appliqué – such a perfect look for a Palm Springs event! Bullock received the Palm Desert Achievement Award for Gravity, presented by her Hope Floats co-star Gena Rowlands.
Best-dressed couple honors go to Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves, with McConaughey in a metallic blazer with black lapels and black trousers by Saint Laurent and Alves in a black Mikael D gown with sheer lace inserts from the Spring 2014 collection. McConaughey was a Palm Desert Achievement Award recipient for Dallas Buyers Club, with his award presented by his Tiptoes co-star Gary Oldman. Other red carpet favorites include Amy Adams in a polka dot gown by Juan Carlos Obando and Lupita Nyong’o in a shimmering rose gold Elie Saab sheath.
Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep were both honored for their performances in August: Osage County, with Roberts in a Gucci leopard print frock with an embellished hem and bell sleeves, and Streep in an embellished Michael Kors sweater and black slacks.
The cast of American Hustle was on hand at Saturday’s Awards Gala to receive the Ensemble Performance Award, presented by the film’s director, David O. Russell.
The 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival continues through Jan. 13, so you still have time to check out some of the featured films (or just scope out some of your favorite actors while they’re in Palm Springs!).
