Abbie Cornish looked so very elegant as she walked the red carpet at the 2011 G’Day USA Los Angeles black tie gala at The Hollywood Palladium this weekend.

Abbie is not one to play it safe on the red carpet – remember her dramatic Toni Maticevski gown which she wore to 2009 Cannes Film Festival?

She loves big gowns and they don’t come much bigger or bolder than Elie Saab.

The Australian actress looked absolutely gorgeous wearing an Elie Saab Fall 2010 gown with a flowing train.

Her black and beige print gown with a lace and ribbon bodice also has subtle sequins and delicate buttons for added detail.

The elegance continued via her chic updo, flawless make-up, a simple black clutch and silver Vram by Grey jewels.
