It's certainly not been your typical awards season, with the usual red carpets swapped out for Zoom appearances and shaky Wi-Fi connections.

However, just because the format has changed, it doesn't mean the glamour needs to be dialled down to zero.

Stars have been donning their evening best for a number of Hollywood ceremonies in recent months, from the Baftas to the Golden Globes. And, even though they might not be snapped on the red carpet, they've been taking to social media to inject a little sparkle into our feeds.

Thursday night's Independent Spirit Awards were no different, either.

Actresses including Renee Zellweger, Elle Fanning and Carey Mulligan were among the famous faces who dialled in for the event, as well as shared a behind-the-scenes look at their outfits for the occasion.

Labels including Prada, Dior and Miu Miu were the order of the night, with Julia Garner, Emerald Fennell and Kate Mara also offering a sneak peek of their gladrags.

The Independent Spirit Awards was the last industry event ahead of the season's crowning jewel, the Academy Awards, which will take place on Sunday, April 25.

While the occasion will be a scaled-down affair compared to usual years, a host of stars are expected to attend an in-person ceremony, held at Los Angeles's Union Station.
