Sundance Film Festival is in full swing, with big-name celebrities attending red-carpet premieres and portrait sessions galore.

The 2023 event started on Thursday and will run until January 29 in Utah’s mountainous Park City, with plenty more cinematic spectacles on the agenda.

Over the past few days, stars have been spotted attending screenings for films such as Punjabi-language Joyland, science-fiction horror film Infinity Pool and headline-grabbing psychological thriller Cat Person.

In terms of fashion, it's been quietly understated, with plenty of black outfits punctuated by pops of orange and red.

American actress Anne Hathaway wore an LBD with black sheer tights and chunky boots, paired with a thick puffer jacket, to the premiere of her film Eileen, a coming drama thriller, in which Hathaway stars, based on the Man Booker Prize-shortlisted 2015 novel of the same name. The story is of a woman's friendship with a new co-worker that takes a sinister turn at the prison facility where she works.

US actress Brooke Shields was also there to promote Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields, a two-part documentary that sheds light on the period Shields came of age in public, after she starred aged 12 in the controversial 1978 film Pretty Baby.

Women sporting blazers and suits has been a common sight at the festival.

He was there to discuss his new documentary Deep Rising, which he narrates and executive produces, about the controversial proposal to mine the ocean floor.
