There was no end in sight to the chic set who hit the red carpet for the 3rd annual Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, hosted at The Star on Thursday (January 30) in Sydney, Australia. Here, a look at the rest of the lovelies who were holding court at the AACTA ceremony.
Courtney Eaton: The young starlet was stunning in a J’Aton Couture ensemble featuring a dazzling, sheer embellished bodice and dramatic cream skirt with a significant train. What really elevated this look to perfection were the slightly messy updo and that impossibly cool fuchsia lippie.
Natalie Bassingthwaighte: The Aussie entertainer was dripping in emerald glamour, wearing a sparkling Leah Da Gloria gown with gold sandals. With a plunge neckline and slit to the hip, this look oozed a certain brand of sultry appeal. But did it go too far?
Grace Huang: Playing the lady in red, the Australian actress sizzled in a Yeojin Bae crimson-hued gown that punched up the sexiness with strategically placed cutouts at the bodice and another thigh-scraping slit. The gold cuffs were likely one accessory to many.
Brenna Harding: The young actress wore a Sara Phillips abstractly printed frock, of which I loved the saturated cobalt blue tones. I just couldn’t get past those clunky black platform sandals nor the unnecessary necklace.
Gracie Otto: Looking equal parts vampy and bohemian, the Aussie star showed off a little black Dolce & Gabbana sheer number. Laser-cut lace is beautiful in appropriate quantities, and she works it well here—especially given her effortless styling that skipped the jewels in favour of a sleek low updo and piercing red lip.
Jacki Weaver: Also working the lace angle, Jacki wore a red Tadashi Shoji Fall 2013 dress to accept The Raymond Longford Award, which is the lifetime achievement award. The watch and glitzy silver handbag were distractions I wanted to remove from this gown.
Jessica Tovey: The starlet certainly made sure everyone was fully awake on the red carpet, bringing an amazing jolt of bright bubble-gum pink to the proceedings in her Yeojin Bae frock. Aside from the hot colour, which I loved, the bow was a fun detail. The uninspired nude pumps, on the other hand, I will have to ignore in order to still have any appreciation for this look.
Michala Banas: Donning a languid one-shoulder, Grecian-inspired gown, Rachel topped off the look with a bit of structure via a tightly wound topknot.
Danielle Cormack: With perhaps one of the most dramatic looks at the event, the New Zealand actress wore a creamy Leah da Gloria mermaid confection, set off by a mock bow and ruffle detail at the bodice along with a theatrically long train. Too much frou-frou or just enough?
