After announcing her split from husband Robin Thicke, and her son Julian being involved in a car crash, it’s been a tough week for Paula Patton. Yesterday afternoon, she attended The 2014 Independent Spirits Awards pre-Oscar event at Santa Monica Beach.

She brightened up the red carpet in a beautiful yellow lace mini dress. She bravely walked the red carpet in nude heels and smiled for photogs.

Though she revealed that she is heartbroken over her split, she put on a happy face and looked sensational in her dress. Check the gallery.
