Keeping low-key, Cooper covered up with a baseball hat and aviator sunglasses while wearing a gray tee, red pants, Nike sneakers, and a backpack. Meanwhile, the Big Little Lies star Laura Dern went for a more boho-inspired look with a tiered paisley-print Zimmermann frock, hoop earrings, sunglasses, dark sneakers, and a cross-body bag.
