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.
