Jared Leto, unequivocally our pic for best dressed, hit the carpet in a grunge-inspired outfit that would have looked on anyone else like they weren’t trying but on him looks so put-together!
Film Independent Spirit Awards 2014: ’12 Years A Slave’ Nominated For 7 Awards
We also can’t forget the amazing John Waters, who looked particularly John Waters-esque in a red plaid suit jacket, brown plaid suit pants, and a red tie.
Awards season favorite 12 Years A Slave was nominated for a whopping 7 awards out of the 18 categories — more than any other film! While Inside Llewyn Davis and Frances Ha are also strong contenders, they’re no match against Steve McQueen‘s wrenching drama which has given our fave, Lupita, instant breakout star status.
So, HollywoodLifers, who were you most excited to see on the red carpet? Which awards season favorite are you hoping will win? Vote and comment below!
