A cacophony of color kicks off the Independent Spirit Awards

March 5, 2010 |  7:53 pm

It's still fairly early in the blue carpet arrivals at the Film Independent Spirit Awards (which air live on IFC starting at 8 p.m. PST), and though the event has changed locations (moving to L.A. Live from Santa Monica) and timing (the Friday evening before the Academy Awards instead of the Saturday afternoon before), one thing that's carried over is the cacophony of color and over-the-top wardrobe pieces.

Exhibit A:  Dana Delaney in a a knee-length sleeveless pink and orange Prada confection, and "Which Way Home," director Rebecca Cammisa in a swirl of turquoise and teal patterns (we haven't nailed down the provenance of her dress yet).

They guys didn't disappoint either. Director John Waters, who will be presenting an award tonight, turned out in a Comme des Garcons jacket with necktie pieces appliqued up and down the front, and jokingly referred to his look as "disaster at the dry cleaners."

What Olympic skater and reality show star Johnny Weir lacked in color he made up for in glitter, channeling his inner (er, outer) sparkle-vampire in a glitter-lapel jacket and crinkle-collared dress shirt by Viktor & Rolf Monsieur, which he told the carpet crowd had been styled by Rachel Zoe.
