How wonderful it is to see our favorite stars receive the awards that we know they deserve. Avid fans of their sought-through artists surely never missed the 24th Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala where several artists got recognized for their hard work. Famous artists known worldwide are given tribute and tokens for their outstanding performance, for their works of charity, for their unique ideas and most of all, for their talent in directing, acting and anything that is show business. The event took place in California, last January 5, Hollywood stars were able to show their fabulous styles while walking the red carpet. The event was hosted by Mary Hart who presented ten of the awards that the Festival gave out.
Here are the list of the recipients of the PSIFF Awards Gala given that day: Ensemble Performance Award given to Ben Affleck and casts from Argo, Bradley Cooper received the Desert Palm Achievement Award Actor, Helen Hunt was given the Spotlight Award, Helen Mirren received the International Star Award, Mychael Danna bagged the Frederick Loewe Award for her film composition, Naomi Watts received the Desert Palm Achievement Award Actress, Richard Gere received the Chairman's Award Robert Zemeckis received the Director of the Year Award, Sally Field (Lincoln) got the Career Achievement Award and Tom Hooper received the Sonny Bono Visionary Award for Les Misérables.
Aside from these awards, what caught the attention of the crowd was how these stars presented themselves in their amazing style. Ben Affleck came in a Gucci suit and a bowtie, Bradley Cooper was a glance catcher with his smile and Tom Ford Tuxedo, Noami Watts looked vibrant in her dazzling blue gown by Roland Mouret matched with gold drop earrings and Louie Vuitton Florida sandals, Hellen Mirren looked perfectly sophisticated in her red long Escada gown, partnered with David Webb accessories and Diane Lane was astounding as well, with her Dolce and Gabbana lace dress that was obviously shorter than the long gowns that the rest of the crowd chose to wear.
The 24th Palm Spring Festival is surely one of the most awaited events for our stars to show off their style and glamour and to finally get rewards for their internationally shared talents. We sure are happy for all the awardees and for those who were able to receive their awards. Congratulations!
