Michelle Williams in Miu Miu, Jessica Chastain in Prabal Gurung, and Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab

The awards season has officially kicked off!

From A-listers to chic newbies on the film scene—actresses stepped out in full glamour mode at the 2012 Palm Springs Film Festival.

Michelle Williams was glowing in a champagne silk duchesse Miu Miu dress with crystal and pearl embroidery, bronze Prada sandals, and Forevermark diamond jewelry.

Jessica Chastain also played with shine in a deep green patchwork jacquard molded seam dress from Prabal Gurung’s pre-fall 2012 collection. The Tree of Life star accessorized with black strappy heels and a black onyx-and-white gold diamond ring and earrings from Cartier.

Angelina Jolie kept it simple in a nude pleated jumpsuit by red carpet favorite Elie Saab, which she paired with natural hair and makeup.

Charlize Theron in Lanvin, Shailene Woodley in Stella McCartney, and Olivia Wilde in Monique Lhuillier

Charlize Theron kept it simple yet sexy in an LBD with a thigh-high slit from Lanvin's Spring 2012 collection. The Oscar winner opted for understated sandals and a sleek clutch, yet upped the wow factor with a panther bangle and yellow gold and diamond drop earrings from Cartier.

Olivia Wilde also gave her basic black dress—and Cartier baubles—a sultry twist: the crepe georgette racerback Monique Lhuillier gown featured back and side lace panels for a peekaboo effect.

And style star-to-watch Shailene Woodley (of George Clooney's The Descendants) took a red carpet risk in a mixed-print Stella McCartney blouse and skirt ensemble, which she topped off with Anita Ko earrings and the ultimate California accessory: long, tan legs.
