Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie
Palm Springs was awash with stars this weekend as the 23rd annual film fest, which pays tribute to the best in the world of cinema, got underway.
Angelina wore a simple but uber-elegant Elie Saab gown to accompany Brad as he accepted the Desert Palm Achievement Actor Award for his role in Moneyball. Accessorising his tux with a black cane, he told reporters that he had fallen on a ski slope while carrying the couple’s three-year-old daughter, Vivienne.
Other recipients included Charlize Theron, who was honoured with a brunch given in her name, where she received the Variety magazine Indie Impact award. The Monster star wore an emerald and black Reed Krakoff dress, with black accessories and a low ponytail to accept the award, which celebrates outstanding contribution to independent cinema.
The festival continues in Palm Springs until 16 January, showcasing 78 films from around the world.
