Cate Blanchett, Michelle Yeoh, Mia Goth and Rooney Mara led the stars at the glittering red carpet for the 38th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles on Saturday.

Rooney, whose new movie Women Talking was nominated for Best Feature that evening, was a showstopping presence as she went topless under a coat with only one button closed.

Her flesh-flashing ensemble, which allowed her to bare not just her cleavage but also her enviably taut midriff, was accented with heavy eye makeup that sharpened her penetrating gaze.

Meanwhile Cate and Michelle, who were nominated against each other for Best Lead Performance, shared a warm embrace on the red carpet in a flourish of good sportsmanship.

Cate, 53, was agelessly glamorous in a dark trouser suit that featured raised shoulders and a cape, as well as a futuristic bit of electric blue embroidery over its black background.

The sleek ensemble was perfectly fitted to emphasize the Lord Of The Rings superstar’s sensationally svelte figure as she treated the photographers to her ethereal stare.

Michelle on other hand was the picture of sprightly good cheer, bringing back memories of the 1980s in a dress with an extravagant set of mesh flowers twirling around her petite frame.

Mia, another acting nominee for the new slasher picture Pearl, slid into a see-through black lace gown that offered a clear view of her black bra as the cameras snapped away at her.

With a swirling hem that emphasized her statuesque figure, the dress strikingly featured a small cowl and was accessorized with a thick, matching headband.

As she swanned about during the red carpet portion of the event, Rooney got to enjoy a reunion with her Women Talking co-stars Jessie Buckley and Claire Foy. 

Meanwhile Michelle also got to hobnob with her Everything Everywhere All At Once co-stars Ke Huy Quan and Stephanie Hsu, as well as the film’s writing and directing team of Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan.

Celebs galore were on hand, including Jamie Lee Curtis in an eye-popping metallic trouser suit, Regina King who looked radiant as ever in white and Ayo Edebiri who showed off her vertiginous legs in a glittery party dress.

Quinta Brunson – who went onto win Best Lead Performance In A New Scripted Series for Abbott Elementary, which she also created – was a golden girl in a sumptuously feathery gown.
