With awards season upon us, we can all prepare to see a lot of Brie Larson red carpet fashions. The 26-year-old actress has been gathering Oscar buzz for her leading role in "Room," a book-turned-film about a mother (Larson) and son (tiny newcomer Jacob Tremblay) held captive in a backyard shed for years. And it's well-deserved — if you enjoy weeping in the dark as much as I do, you'll love this movie.

On Saturday night, Larson and Tremblay turned out at the 27th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards looking every bit the Academy Award nominees they very well might be, she in a '90s-ish emerald dress and he in a wee tuxedo. The pair's grooming was equally on point: Larson matched her sleek outfit with a stick straight look tucked behind her ears. Tremblay clearly combed his hair.

With its low-key glamour, Larson's look is also a very solid starting point for all the gowns still to come this awards season — it's stylish, classic, not overdone. There's plenty of time to build the sartorial drama. Here we go.
