Film Independent Spirit Awards 2011
Film Independent Spirit Awards 2011
  Many of this year's Oscar hopefuls were also nominated for Film Independent Spirit Awards, which were handed out on February 26. Click ahead to see which celebs attended the star-studded soiree in Santa Monica, California.
 A pregnant Natalie Portman -- who won Best Actress for her riveting role as Nina Sayers in "Black Swan" -- hit the arrivals line in a chic Givenchy dress, nude Stella McCartney pumps, and Cartier ring.
 Right behind Natalie was Best Actress nominee Nicole Kidman ("Rabbit Hole"), who showed off her fit frame in a figure-hugging lace frock, gold watch, and checkered heels.
 Following in Nicole's footsteps was Jennifer Lawrence. The breakout star of "Winter's Bone" delivered a smile while strutting her stuff in Dolce & Gabbana, Lorraine Schwartz bracelets, and strappy Christian Louboutin sandals.

Also spotted sporting a smile ... "The Kids Are All Right's" Annette Bening, whose suit resembled the one worn by her hubby Warren Beatty.
 Nominee Melissa Leo -- who's also up for Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars -- donned a low-cut emerald green gown, which surprisingly revealed a bird tattoo on her chest.
 Presenter Rosario Dawson took a walk on the wild side in a leopard print Burberry dress and metallic Brian Atwood heels.

From the waist up, Taye Diggs looked like a million bucks. Unfortunately, his cuffed jeans and dirty shoes ruined what could have been an awesome ensemble.

The glamorous Eva Mendes popped a pose in fierce footwear and a multicolored chiffon dress from Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection.
  Liev Schreiber accompanied his Chanel-wearing wife, Naomi Watts, who was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in the indie drama "Mother and Child."
  Michelle Trachtenberg attempted to stay warm by pairing black tights with her unfortunate-looking Pamella Roland coat dress and studded heels.
  "Avatar" star Zoe Saldana arrived at the 26th annual celebration in a disastrous Dolce & Gabbana dress, Brian Atwood pumps, and Piaget cocktail ring.
  Jon Hamm and his partner, actress Jennifer Westfeldt ("Kissing Jessica Stein"), were undoubtedly the cutest couple on the carpet.
  Amanda Peet -- whose performance in "Please Give" was one of the funniest of 2010 -- rocked a delicate white frock, black platform peep-toes, and a ponytail.
 "The Town's" Jeremy Renner looked sharp in his shades and sharkskin suit.
  Mia Wasikowska ("The Kids Are All Right") appeared a tad uncomfortable in her dowdy dress and clunky shoes.
  Ben Stiller -- whose leading role in "Greenberg" landed him a Best Actor nom -- waved at photographers as he shuffled into the soiree.
  Kerry Washington -- who starred alongside Naomi Watts and Annette Bening in "Mother and Child" -- impressed in a long-sleeved floral frock and matching pumps.
  Ewan McGregor kept things a little too casual in a basic blazer, jeans, and boots. Luckily, we were distracted by his piercing blue eyes and cute coif.
  Anne Heche -- who can currently be seen on the big screen in "Cedar Rapids" -- opted for the boho-chic look with a flowing dress and effortlessly tussled tresses.
  Samuel L. Jackson stood out (in a bad way!) thanks to his dizzying jacket and blinding sneakers.
 Sandra Oh's bracelet was stunning, but the rest of her outfit was far from fabulous.
  "Parenthood" star Erika Christensen braved the chilly weather in a beautiful belted mini and nude platform pumps.
  Amber Tamblyn -- who rarely wows on the red carpet -- arrived in blunt bangs, basic black heels, and a painfully dull dress.
  Paul Rudd decided to go sans tie, but he still looked great in his black suit, sunglasses, and smirk.
 "Greenberg's" Greta Gerwig made the mistake of donning a bow-adorned prom bomb.
  49-year-old Dale Dickey -- who won Best Supporting Actress for her work in "Winter's Bone" -- put women half her age to shame in a cute, age-appropriate dress and gold sandals.
  Someone call the fashion police! Best Actor nominee Aaron Eckhart ("Rabbit Hole") was spotted sporting a black belt and brown shoes.
  Aaron Eckhart wasn't the only star to deliver a fashion faux pas. Vera Farmiga (pictured with her husband, musician Renn Hawkey) also deserved to be locked up for her ridiculous look.
Indie movie queen Illeana Douglas put her best foot forward in an embellished dress, fishnets, and futuristic footwear.
