Oscar-winning actress Patricia Arquette paid tribute to vintage glamor on the blue carpet at the 2023 Film Independent Spirit Awards Saturday in Santa Monica, California.
The versatile star, who is directing Camila Morrone and Willem Dafoe in Gonzo Girl, arrived to the red carpet in a 1970s-inspired pink and gold patterned gown with long sleeves, a high collar and keyhole neckline.
The actress, best known for her performances in Boyhood and Lost Highway, styled her platinum blonde locks in long, loose layers which framed her face.
The mother-of-two opted for a natural looking makeup with a shimmery rose gold lip, black eyeliner, which drew attention to her bright blue eyes and a touch of blush on the apple of her cheeks.
She accessorized the look with large gold hoop earrings.

The Otherhood star carried a gold sequined purse for the star-studded event.
Patricia was there to support her castmates and the creators of Severance.
The Apple TV+ drama was nominated for Best New Scripted Series.
The Sci-fi drama focuses on a mysterious corporation called Lumon Industries, which has developed a chip that can split its employees’ minds in two.
Once they leave the office, the workers share no memories with the people they are at home.
Patricia received an Emmy nomination for her performance as Harmony Cobel, an icy corporate manager who also acts as a lactation specialist away from the office.
‘Even though Harmony’s not ‘severed,’ everybody is multiple people in this’ she told The New Yorker in July.
‘She’s severed from her own feelings, her own experiences of bonding with people outside of this corporate world.
The single mom, who shares daughter Harlow, 20, with her ex-husband Thomas Jane, is planning on opening a cannabis lounge with her son, Enzo, 34, whom she shares with former boyfriend Paul Rossi.

‘It’s called Fantom Flower. It just started construction,’ she said.
During Covid, edibles really helped me deal with anxiety. So I’m super excited about [the lounge]. I’m going to interview people. So, fusing great music, great cannabis, activism. It’s going to be really fun. A very vital, alive place.’
The 38th Annual Film Independent Spirit Awards were held at the Santa Monica Pier on Saturday, March 4, with comedian Hasan Minhaj hosting.
The nominations were officially announced late last year in November, and the awards ceremony is notably known for bringing ‘together top talent from throughout the world of film and television,’ according to the official website.
This year, the awards show will only be available to view via streaming, and will not air live on IFC, a first since 1997, reported Variety.
Instead, fans and audiences can easily tune in to watch the beachside festivities on IMDB’s YouTube Channel, as well as the Film Independent’s YouTube and Twitter pages.
Some of the top categories include Best Feature, Best Director, and also Best New Scripted Series.
The Spirit Awards have also installed new gender-neutral categories, combining both male and female actors for Best Lead and Supporting Performances in film and television.
Josh Welsh, who is the current Film Independent President, told Variety that, ‘It’s something we’ve been talking about for probably three years.’
Another honor given out during the annual ceremony is the John Cassavetes Award, which is presented to a creative team for a film that was budgeted at less than $1,000,000. The nominees include The African Desperate, The Cathedral, Holy Emy, A Love Song and Something In The Dirt.
