Vault Exclusive: Down at The Beach with Alexander Skarsgård & the Independent Spirit Awards

Yesterday, I went down to the beach and saw Alexander Skarsgård.  Well, actually it wasn’t quite as easy as that sounds. I went to the beach in Santa Monica where the 2012 Independent Spirit Awards took place and after much effort, managed to get a few photos of the tall vampire. It had been announced that Alexander Skarsgård would attend and I wanted to try and get some photos and/or video of him.  His film “Melancholia” was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award as best foreign film. Unfortunately, the film didn’t win the category.

The awards took place in a large tent erected in a parking lot next to the Casa Del Mar Hotel, a very exclusive beach front hotel. I arrived late because I had other appointments in the morning. When I got there, it was already well after the red carpet had taken place, and many fans were already lined up in front of the barricades that had been erected to keep them from entering the area.  It essentially was fence that ran parallel to the bike path.

Since the red carpet had already ended, all the stars were already in the tent and the show was going on so, if I was going to get any photos, I had to wait about three hours until it was time for them to leave.

Because of my late arrival, I didn’t get a very good spot in which to wait and autographs and photos with the stars was pretty much impossible. I did see quite a few stars though.  In addition to seeing Alex, I saw Colin Farrell, Ben Kingsley, Anne Heche, Jonah Hill, Kirstin Dunst and Carson Kressley. My camera was able to grab a few photos of Alexander as he left.  He was waiting for his car and all the fans were screaming to him to come over, so he did and signed a few autographs for the fans, but alas he didn’t come close to me.

The dress code for the day was California casual, which I think, means pretty much, “anything goes.”  I saw stars with evening gowns and those dressed in just jeans and t-shirts. However, Alex dressed it up a bit and he looked mighty fine, I’d say.

Below are the photos I was able to catch from my less than perfect viewpoint, three of Alex and some of the other stars I was able to get:

    Lynn – you did a great job getting good photos of those celebrities!
    I absolutely love Kirsten Dunst’s outfit – great shoes, and Carson’s whole look – totally California!
    I can’t figure out if Alex’s suit is leather, or just has a very high sheen to the fabric – could you tell? Love the color. He looks great.

    I watched the show , but never saw Alex. I thought Seth Rogan was pretty good – his first time hosting.

      It was definitely blue fabric and not leather. It was a very sharp suit, if you ask me, and fitted him perfectly. His stylist did a good job.

    Lynn, thanks for your efforts on behalf of the fans. Considering your vantage point I think you did great with your photos. That first one of Alex is a stunner, and the others are very good. Sorry that Melancholia did not win.
