Consider it the very start of all the award show magic about to break out for us: tonight's Palm Springs International Film Festival brought out some of the glamorous ladies currently heading the biggest movies at your local theater. Think Sandra Bullock , Julia Roberts , our favorite newcomer Lupita Nyong'o , and more.
Amy Adams at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
Amy Adams  left her American Hustle wardrobe behind for the evening, skipping anything low-cut like the amazing numbers she sports for most of the movie. Instead, she picked a silk black-and-white number from Juan Carlos Obando that featured a wide band at the waist and a halter neck. Her shoes were simple: She's wearing nude patent leather Casadei  pumps underneath it all.
Lupita Nyong'o at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
We've named Lupita Nyong'o as one of our favorite new red carpet faces , and can you really blame us? The 12 Years a Slave beauty has consistently turned out sophisticated looks that speak of someone who's been hitting the award show circuit for years. For Palm Springs, she picked Elie Saab  Haute Couture, Christian Louboutin  sandals, and Cartier  jewels.
Julia Roberts at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
Some time off the red carpet doesn't mean Julia Roberts 's styling skills are rusty. Far from it! She went for all-out glamour in a one-of-a-kind Gucci  dress, mixing leopard print with heavy gold embellishments at the hem and sleeves. She carried the essentials in a Roger Vivier  clutch.
Sandra Bullock at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
After a year that saw Sandra Bullock in a whole lot of black , we're thrilled to see her back in brights ! The actress went for Day-Glo in this hot-pink and orange number that featured lace detailing at the neckline and sleeves.
Meryl Streep at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
Dress? What dress? Meryl Streep  skipped the red carpet regular in favor of slim trousers and a gold-studded top from the Michael Kors  Resort 2013 collection. The combo looks chic, but comfortable too.
Camila Alves at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
The sexiest look of the night belonged to Camila Alves, who positively sizzled in a Mikael D dress from the Spring 2014 collection. It got its double dose of steamy from a high slit on the leg and a lacy slash right across the torso. For shoes, she picked Casadei  heels.
Naomie Harris at the Palm Springs International Film Festival
Black and white was a winning pair for Naomie Harris, who picked a Chantilly lace dress from the Naeem Khan  Spring 2014 collection. The look was extra girlie, thanks to a black velvet belt worn right at the waist.
