The Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala was held in Palm Springs, California, on Saturday. And if the star-studded event was like a dress rehearsal for the Oscars in February (which it SOOOO was!), we can expect to see a ton of traditional ladylike frocks (with modern twists) at the upcoming awards show. For example, Carey Mulligan, who starred in Never Let Me Go and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, looked prim and proper in a purple brocade Prada dress, which she cinched at the waist with a black belt and paired with matching pumps. Meanwhile, the newly engaged, Black Swan actress Natalie Portman teamed her gorgeous pregnancy glow with a black Vionnet dress that had sheer sleeves, gold cuffs, and a collar. The Social Network's Rashida Jones rocked a floral-printed Stella McCartney top with a black miniskirt and diamond cutout peep toes. GORGE!
