Bella Heathcote attended the 2012 AFI Fest premiere for ‘Life Of Pi’ held at the Grauman’s Chinese Theatre on Friday evening in Hollywood, California.

The Australian actress who has been wearing a lot of pretty frocks since becoming a red carpet favourite, opted for something different from the Balenciaga Fall 2012 collection.

Her black, white and grey pixelated snake-print dress has a futuristic feel which oozes effortless femininity.

Opting to wear her hair up again on this occasion, Bella added a black cuff, bi-coloured taupe-and-black chain accented sandals and a black patent clutch to her look.

I would’ve never figured Bella in a Balenciaga dress, immediately writing the brand off as too edgy for her delicate tastes, but she totally pulled off this look with ease.

You can buy Bella’s Balenciaga dress from Browns Fashion.
