The stars steal the Independent Spirit Awards in patterned pieces.

Taking fashion cues from the Film Independent Spirit Awards' beachside location in Santa Monica, stars opted for pieces that were playful and elegant in equal measure.

Patterns dominated the show's signature blue carpet, with best female lead nominee and Room star Brie Larson leading the pack in a graphic Chanel ensemble that grazed below her knee. Meanwhile, Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke nailed casual cool in a demure floral-printed Michael Kors blouse and skirt, paired with white pointed heel and a Mark Cross bag.

Jessica Biel brought a major pop of color into the mix with a paisley electric-blue-and-red, off-the-shoulder number by Roland Mouret that epitomized daytime elegance.
