3rd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup

3rd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet RoundupThere 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?

3rd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup2Grace 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.

3rd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup3Gracie 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.

3rd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Roundup4Jessica 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.

3rd Annual AACTA Awards - ArrivalsDanielle 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?

    Natalie Bassingthwaighte’s look would have been so good without the cleavage. Nevermind, I’m just pleased to see her wearing a local designer for once.

    FYI, the woman in the 8th pic is misidentified – it’s Michala Banas (not Rachel Hayes, whoever that is)

    The young lady in the first pic (Courtney Eaton) looks absolutely elegant and delightful. Can we propose her for BDOTW contender?

    • Francois Bresmal January 31, 2014 at 08:36 #

      YES, I VOTE FOR IT! She’s really gorgeous! I want to see her in the BDOTW poll too :D

    Courtney Eaton’s look is perfect! This dress is beautiful and her make up and her hair are working perfectly with the dress. BDOTW for sure.

    Courtney Eaton looks gorgeous, she is my favourite too. But I also like Grace Huang’s look. Her gown is beautiful.

  7. Christine January 31, 2014 at 11:58 #

    Courtney looks the best. Gorgeous look

    I agree that Courtney Eaton looks beautiful, but does anyone else think her breasts need to be higher?

    Natalie looks horrible but Courtney looks stunning!! All in all, I’m very impressed with this event…it’s one of the best dressed Aussie red carpet event we’ve had in a long time. It’s refreshing :)

    Courtney has pulled off a real stunner, wow! All the others more or less belong into the roundup post.

    The ladies in White (cream) look Wonderful!! Courtney’s updo gives romantic whimsy and I’m all about Danielle’s drama. But I can’t resist a little dirtiness, so I also like Natalie’s look.
