Elsa Pataky In Naeem Khan - The Inaugural Oceana Ball

With mummy duties taking priority over the last few months, Elsa Pataky made a return to the red carpet for the Inaugural Oceana Ball hosted by Christie’s in New York City on Monday evening, where she gave her cropped hairstyle its red carpet debut.

The model/actress and mum of one dazzled wearing a Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2013 frock.

Not only did the pewter sequin dress have a risqué plunging front, but it also featured an open back; I’m sure hubby Chris Hemsworth wasn’t complaining.

While she set the blue carpet alight with her stunning dress, I’m not too fond of the champagne-coloured satin Christian Louboutin peep-toes.

This dress deserved better shoes. Since the shoe is so popular, I can picture the silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals elevating this look further.
