Bella Heathcote attended the ‘Killing Them Softly’ after party at Villa St George during Cannes Film Festival yesterday evening.

Despite being a newbie on the red carpet, the Australian actress has really earned her stripes.

On this occasion she donned her first couture, by Chanel no less.

The black Chanel Fall 2009 Couture dress with a layered skirt and a rise-and-fall hemline has light embellishments on the shoulder.

Bella completed her look with Nicholas Kirkwood black satin rose sandals, Chanel Fine Jewelry and wavy locks.
