There were few stars in attendance at the beginning of the Sundance Film Festival here, but Sienna Miller, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mandy Moore and Zooey Deschanel were all expected in the coming days.
But industry types took up the fashion slack, parading up and down Main Street in chic cold-weather ensembles. The uniform consisted of shearling-lined moccasin boots, jeans, aviators and black quilted parkas, though some branched out into colorful coats and casual layers with a bohemian feel.
Still, Sundance folk are city girls at heart — they couldn’t step out without their “It” bags. Chloé Paddingtons and Balenciaga motorcycle bags could be seen sliding off the arms of many a visitor’s down jacket.
