While we're still sleeping off our NYE excess, Hollywood is already back at the red carpet game for awards season. The destination? The desert environs of the Palm Springs International Film Fest, which has become a snazzy stop on the road to the Oscars. Just look at the bold-faced guest list (and the excellent fashions) and you'll see what we mean.
Take girl of the season, Alicia Vikander, who's nominated for two Golden Globes and took home the Rising Star award for the night. The 27-year-old played the demure yet fresh route in this frilled pink number with nude strappy sandals. To finish the ingenue look, she wore her hair half-up.
Vikander wasn't the only one who dressed to the nines. See our favorite looks of the evening below:
Cate Blanchett covers up in Marc Jacobs but is far from staid.
Amber Heard and Johnny Depp knows the glamorous allure of a power couple.
Kate Winslet is seductive in curve-hugging black.
Rooney Mara goes for a short yet far from sweet Lanvin frock.
Helen Mirren shows she's still got it in sapphire separates.
