Teresa Palmer’s red carpet ride has had its ups and downs.

She was most definitely on a high at the Australians In Film’s 2011 Breakthrough Awards, which was held at the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills, California last night.

The young blonde actress looked radiant in a body-skimming Michael Kors Fall 2011 dress – the designer is having an amazing week on the red carpet.

Her plum cashmere racerback tank dress was worn without the patent leather runway belt. The look works either way, but Teresa made the right choice to go without the belt as it gives her look a more relaxed effortless vibe for a night out in Cali.

She looks super sexy in a sophisticated way. I’m really digging this look.

A sexy wavy updo, Jack Vartanian and a Raven Kauffman Couture gold glitter ‘Garbo’ clutch.

BDOTW worthy?
