2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

There were plenty more divine ladies besides Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman who took to the red carpet on Wednesday evening for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards, held at The Star in Sydney, Australia.

Jessica Mauboy: The singer/actress picked up her first AACTA Award – Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Sapphires’ – wearing a breathtaking Steven Khalil red gown. This is not the first time I have been wowed by the Australian designer, who is also loved by actress Kate Ritchie.

Gracie Otto: This is the second run out for this Gucci Spring 2013 saffron-yellow gown, as Bipasha Basu wore this gown on Monday. Gracie had the good sense to kept this look minimal and not overwhelm it with unnecessary jewels, styling the look with a clear Gucci clutch from the same collection.

Essie Davis: The actress certainly knows how to make an entrance. She was simply captivating wearing a red Leah Da Gloria floor-sweeping gown with a slashed neckline and lace panels on the three-quarter-length sleeves. The three red gowns ruled this red carpet: Cate, Jessica and Essie.

Sarah Snook: The actress wore a heavenly Christian Dior Spring 2012 mint-green gown for the occasion. It’s such a shame that the dress looked so droopy around the bust because the colour is divine for her pale complexion and flame-red hair. It’s a crime she wore those cream pumps when black shoes would’ve complemented her accessories.

Jessica McNamee: Proving she’s not afraid of colour, Jessica styled her electric-blue strapless frock with a green tassel-accented clutch; a red manicure completed a trio of gorgeous colours. It’s a shame her tan shoes didn’t live up to the rest of the look.

Megan Gale: The TV presenter kept her look simple and sophisticated, wearing an understated black Alex Perry gown which she styled with a Valentino black clutch.

    Wow–that electric blue dress on Jessica McNamee is spectacular. I agree that her shoes are a let down, but everything else works so well.

    Gracie Otto is my favourite of the bunch. Essie Davis looks great too. And it’s such a shame about Jessica McNamee’s shoes, because I love the rest of her look and had she worn the right shoes, she would have been my favourite.

    Jessica Mauboy and Essie are gorgeous in red, the best of the bunch.
    I’m getting tired of seeing this Gucci gown but Gracie wears it well and got the styling right.
    Don’t like the gown on Sarah or her choice of accessories, Jessica’s tan shoes are way out of place, and Megan’s look is nice, simple and elegant, but bland and forgettable.

    I think Jessica looks great in red but I don’t like the bodice of her gown. The yellow gown is unflattering (in both color and style) on Gracie. Essie’s dress would be my favorite without the slashed neckline. I like the color of Sarah’s gown but the terribly low and uneven neckline looks ripped and unflattering (as well as overly revealing). She also should have worn black shoes.
    I love the color and fabric of Jessica’s blue gown, but the slit, the shoes, and the fit of it are all wrong. Nice clutch, though. Megan looks nice.

    Essie Davis looks amazing!!! Who’s the designer?

    Jessica and Essie are my favourites. They both look spectacular!

      +1 Especially Essie.

    Gracie Otto looks really good in that difficult to wear Gucci. Much, much better than the indian actress and Kate Beckhinsale. She styled it to perfection.

    Essie Davis looks good and age appropiate in that red gown.

  8. dee January 30, 2013 at 19:48 #

    I only like Essie’s look.

  9. TL January 30, 2013 at 20:53 #

    Love Jessica McNamee’s look

    Essie Davis looks fantastic. My second favorite of the event, behind Cate. Jessica McNamee looks great from the ankles up. Jessica Mauboy looks good, but the dress needs to be hiked up a bit. The rest… meh.

    Too bad the Christian Dior dress didn’t fit Sarah Snook because it was gorgeous when Michelle Williams wore it.

    Gracie Otto is my favourite here and 2nd of the night after Cate, thankfully the dress got a re-run and was styled right.
    A much better dressed Australian carpet after the disaster of the Aria awards.

    Essie Davis is my pick – she looks fab. Gracie Otto a close second – much better styling than we saw on others. It seems film actors know how to dress properly … unlike musicians and Tv stars.

    That shiny face & stringy hair Gracie Otto sported on he carpet are a crime. I can´t get over how unkempt she comes across
