Amy Smart In Holmes & Yang – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Amy Smart - Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Amy Smart joined actresses such as Anna Kendrick, Camilla Belle, and Kate Bosworth at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress looked lovely in a shimmering, belted half-sleeved Holmes & Yang dress paired with Christian Louboutin shoes and an Edie Parker clutch.

Amy looks stunning, and the would-be demure look has just enough visual appeal with the peek-a-boo detailing and shimmery fabric.

I also love Amy’s choice of earrings–which seem inspired by the current ear cuff trend, but remain elegantly in the traditional lobe position.

A sleek updo, glowing skin and red lips complete this striking look.

Nina Dobrev In Emilio Pucci – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

The one thing you can rely on is Nina Dobrev making an impact on the red carpet, and that she did at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California, joining Anna Kendrick, Camilla Belle, Jennifer Morrison, Ashley Madekwe and Kate Bosworth.

Nina wore a sexy Emilio Pucci orange silk strapless gown with a fitted bodice and pewter starburst embellishments from the Spring 2014 collection.

She styled the look with the starburst embellishments in mind, wearing gunmetal-grey Rupert Sanderson ‘Rosanna’ ankle-strap sandals and a Rodo metallic-gunmetal perforated rectangular clutch accented with Swarovski-crystal embellishments.

With embellishments adorning her dress and metallic accessories, she didn’t wear too many jewels – just a ring and stud earrings – rounding out the look with an updo and glossy lips.

This was my favourite of the night.

Odette Annable In Pamella Roland – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

It has been a while since we saw Odette Annable on the red carpet but she was back with a bang at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California, joining Anna Kendrick, Camilla Belle, Jennifer Morrison, Ashley Madekwe and Kate Bosworth.

The actress wore a dazzling Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2014 embellished gold short-sleeved frock with a faux-wrap front and open back styled with gold accessories.

What I love most about this look is that deep-rouge lip colour and the slicked-back ponytail, which adds a sexy edge to her look.

Ashley Madekwe attended the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California alongside Camilla Belle, Jennifer Morrison and Kate Bosworth.

Looking as stunning as ever, the actress wore a Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 black-and-white abstract-print strapless gown, keeping the styling simple with a grey clutch and dazzling earrings.

Considering its dramatic nature I love how effortless this look is.

Kate Bosworth In Christian Dior – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Kate Bosworth made her first red carpet appearance of 2014 at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California.

The actress wore a Christian Dior Spring 2014 frock for the occasion which I loved on the runway, but I’m not quite feeling that same love on Kate.

Maybe it’s the length of this pale-blue embellished and pleated frock on Kate, or maybe the accessories are a tad bland, but this is just OK for me when I expected it to be great.

A simple ponytail and a hot-red lip rounded out her look.

Camilla Belle looked breathtaking at the Art of Elysium ‘Heaven’ Gala held at Skirball Cultural Center on Saturday (January 11) in Los Angeles, California.

While I’m not usually a fan of these kinds of shapeless gowns, it’s both the electric-blue hue of her Ralph Lauren Spring 2014 frock and the way she carried herself which essentially won me over – plus the elegant collection of Van Cleef and Arpels jewels also played its part.

A pretty pink lip colour and sexy cat eyes completed her look.

Anna Kendrick In J. Mendel – Art of Elysium Heaven Gala

Anna Kendrick added some vampish glamour to the Art of Elysium’s 7th annual Heaven Gala in Los Angeles, held at the Skirball Cultural Centre on Saturday night (January 11).

In a black J.Mendel Spring 2014 pleated dress with lace bolero- style shoulders and an on-trend cut-out detail, it’s great to see Anna move away from her tried and tested nude and blush looks, but this feels a little too structured.

The embellished clutch is a nice touch, but the Christian Loubotuin ‘Love me’ bow-front heels are a little too prim, I would have preferred to see this look styled with a high sandal.

While it’s refreshing for Anna wear something more daring, I’m just not convinced it works. I can’t help but feel it’s a little too structured especially with such formal hair. Some waves like was saw at the Z100’s Jingle Ball last year would have been so much better. Do you agree?
