Hollywood stars are starting off 2017 with a bang.

At the opening night of the Palm Springs International Film Festival on Monday, Ryan Gosling, Amy Adams, Nicole Kidman, Natalie Portman and others hit the red carpet for the first time in the new year.

In a nod to the warm Palm Springs desert weather, Adams and Ruth Negga wore flowing floral dresses. Adams donned one by Altuzarra that hid her Jimmy Choo heels, and Negga wore a sheer style by Valentino.

During the opening night event, Gosling gave a nod to the late Debbie Reynolds, who passed away last week. Gosling said she was a major inspiration for the cast of “La La Land.”

“I wish I could have said this in person, but I’d like to thank Debbie Reynolds for her wonderful career of work,” he said. “She was an inspiration to us every day. We watched Singin’ in the Rain every day for inspiration, a truly unparalleled talent, so thank you to her for all that inspiration.”
