6th Annual AACTA International Awards

The 6th annual AACTA International Awards were hosted at Avalon Hollywood on January 6, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. The AACTAs recognise and honour outstanding achievement in the Australian film and television industry, so it is no surprise that a few Aussie beauties took to the red carpet for the event.

Nicole Kidman: The statuesque actress wore a Rochas Spring 2017 tea-length dress. I love how she breathed some life into the moodier dress, bringing out the pink waistband with her vibrant lip colour. The main issue I take with the look is in the bodice area, as it appears as if she has a ribbon of tulle wrapped around her waist in cummerbund form thus cutting off her chest.

Isla Fisher: Another auburn-haired Aussie beauty, Isla Fisher lit up the red carpet with an incredibly sunny Monique Lhuillier golden-yellow gown featuring Asian-influenced, lacy floral embroidery. I applaud her attempt to bring a ray of sunshine to the proceedings, however, I found the look to sadly be on the more dated side. Add to it the pair of rather unfortunate platform sandals that occasionally peeked through the too-long gown, and I wanted to shield my eyes from the glare.

Emma Stone: Managing to effectively toe the line between adorable and badass, the ‘La La Land’ actress wore a Gucci dress that took the idea of the LBD to another level. The silhouette of the tiered ruffle frock may have been sweet, but the cage shoulder detail and the embellished bow and collar had just the right amount of rebellious edge to ensure a dramatic and not-too-dainty finish.

Miranda Kerr In Monique Lhuillier & Osman – Samantha Thavasa & Swarovski Photocalls

Miranda Kerr In Monique Lhuillier & Osman - Samantha Thavasa & Swarovski Events

Miranda Kerr had a busy weekend, as the supermodel jet-setted to the lighting ceremony of the Swarovski Christmas tree at the Sony Ginza buiding on Sunday (December 13) in Tokyo, Japan after attending a photo call for Samantha Thavasa at the Lotte Department Store on Friday (December 11) in Seoul, South Korea.

Swarovski Lighting Ceremony: I love how her classically feminine Osman Fall 2015 strapless dress features a futuristic marbled, slightly mystical print. While it doesn’t scream typical “holiday” attire, the reflective silver and midnight swirls are plenty festive, especially with the addition of her fuchsia lip. Swarovski jewels, naturally, completed the sparkling picture.

Samantha Thavasa Photo Call: This Monique Lhuillier floral lace frock, paired with a dusting of Swarovski jewels, brought with it a rush of springtime in the midst of winter. The heavy bag handbag belonged nowhere near the delicate charm of the dress and its vivid blue and green accent embroidery. But, she was likely just showing off some of the Samantha Thavasa handbags.

Anna Paquin In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Good Dinosaur’ LA Premiere

Anna Paquin In Monique Lhuillier - 'The Good Dinosaur' LA Premiere

Anna Paquin attended the premiere of Disney-Pixar’s ‘The Good Dinosaur’ on Tuesday (November 17) in Hollywood, California.

The actress wore a Monique Lhuillier high-low gown embroidered with a bouquet of colourful flowers, which were made all the more vibrantly dimensional by virtue of being smattered onto a black background.

The dress was much like a mysterious secret garden with a dark side.

Rona Pfeiffer jewels completed the look alongside a pair of zesty lemon-yellow heels, which is always a refreshing change from black pumps even if I wish they had been sandals.

2015 Baby2Baby Gala Red Carpet Roundup

2015 Baby2Baby Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup from the 2015 Baby2Baby Gala on Saturday (November 14) in Culver City, California.

Jenna Dewan Tatum: As always, Jenna was head and shoulders above the rest looking elegant wearing a Monique Lhuillier Spring 2016 spring-green strapless embroidered tulip dress with white degradé flowers. The styling – yes even the white shoes – made me swoon.

Reese Witherspoon: Sadly this is all wrong for Reese. Words I thought I would never say in reference to a Giambattista Valli Spring 2015 Couture piece. I guess this explains why she usually sticks to tried and trusted.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley: From the sugary pink hue, to the poor construction of this Dior frock and the horrendous shoes, this was a no from head-to-toe from Rosie.

Elizabeth Banks In Monique Lhuillier – The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Elizabeth Banks In Monique Lhuillier - The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon

Elizabeth Banks made a guest appearance on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ on Thursday (November 12) in New York City to promote her latest movie, ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’.

Bold hues and dainty lace artfully collide in this Monique Lhuillier Spring 2016 fuchsia multi floral splatter print lace dress featuring a black micro-floral lace bandeau.

Admittedly I’m not a huge fan of the bandeau. But it sure does add a new dimension to the typical floral print dress we’ve seen a million times.

I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it either.

Christian Louboutin ‘Decoupadiva’ sandals with a sculpted heel rounded out her look.
