Lots of chic pants, power cocktail dresses and the inevitable jumpsuit were all on display at Thursday's event, where honorees included Hailee Steinfeld and the "Mad Men" actresses.

A diversity of looks was on display at the annual Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards, held Thursday at the Beverly Hilton.

The event marked the group's 40th anniversary and the 12th time that Italian luxury brand MaxMara has been a sponsor (along with Swarovski and Audi) and has given out the Face of the Future Award. This year, the recipient was young Hailee Steinfeld, who has a slew of movies coming out in the next year.

Steinfeld donned a deep royal blue MaxMara fit-n-flare suede dress, while presenter Holly Hunter (to the women of Mad Men) wore a lovely orange silk MaxMara ruffle dress.

But many ladies wore either jumpsuits or great pants and blouses to the event, really creating a new power look for Hollywood evenings. Mad Men's Jessica Pare was in a teal Luisa Beccaria high-necked jumpsuit. while Castle's Stana Katic was in a scarlet MaxMara one-shoulder jumpsuit, which was very festive.

Kathleen Kennedy, presenting George Lucas with a humanitarian award, wore a berry-colored MaxMara tunic and trousers, and host Jenna Elfman donned the brand's white cotton sleeveless top with its black jersey skinny silk pants. Debra Messing was another one wearing an MM jumpsuit; hers was black silk and cotton.

The only serious femme types at WIF were Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss, in a Pucci bustier seafoam mini dress (newly blonde, she has seriously altered her look to bombshell -- the anti-Peggy look) and January Jones in an ornate printed Mary Katrantzou full-skirted dress that updated Betty Draper to 2013 -- no, let's make that 2014.
