Lara Bingle In Dion Lee – Victoria Derby Day

Lara Bingle In Dion Lee - Victoria Derby Day

Lara Bingle joined Naomi Campbell at the Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday.

The socialite opted for all black, donning an overtly sexy look from Dion Lee’s Spring 2014 collection.

I’m sure many of you will agree that this hybrid wire long sleeve crop top with an open back and plunging neckline, styled with an asymmetrical skirt and unique headpiece, doesn’t exactly scream ‘day at the races’.

Those of you more familiar with her style won’t be surprised by this look as the terms ‘dress code’ and ‘event appropriate’ are never really taken into consideration by Lara.

Event inappropriate aside, I have to admit that I kinda like the look. It’s sexy, and she has the body to pull it off. Maybe her intention was to shake things up on Ladies Day.

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic – ‘Blue Jasmine’ Sydney Premiere

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic - 'Blue Jasmine' Sydney Premiere

Cate Blanchett arrived at the Hayden Cremorne Orpheum in Sydney, Australia this evening for the ‘Blue Jasmine’ premiere.

Sticking to the summery colour palette that has served her so well during this promo tour, the actress delights wearing a Roksanda Illincic short-sleeved dress in a two-tone coral hue.

The dress features the designer’s signature folded neckline which Cate decided not to overbear with accessories, keeping it sweet and simple with gold Christian Louboutin ‘Sylvette’ sandals and a dark-pink lip colour to prevent the colour of her dress from washing her out.

I love the simplicity of this look. She carries it so effortlessly and gracefully, as one would expect.

With Oscar buzz surrounding her performance in this movie, we hopefully have a whole awards season full of breathtaking looks from Cate ahead of her.

Jennifer Hawkins In Toni Maticevski – Australia’s Next Top Model Season 8 Launch

Jennifer Hawkins In Toni Maticevski - Australia's Next Top Model Season 8 Launch

Jennifer Hawkins was back to work two day after her honeymoon yesterday evening to launch Season 8 of Australia’s Next Top Model, which was held at Doltone House in Sydney.

The newlywed showed off her fresh tan, wearing an orange-and-black Toni Maticevski cocktail dress with an asymmetrical neckline.

I’m not crazy about the styling. The cuff works; however, the shoes are tres boring and the clutch doesn’t complement any part of her look.

While I love the dress, I have a feeling some of you will be put off by the orange dress and orange glow.

Am I right? Should she have opted for a neutral-coloured dress to showcase her tan?

Mia Wasikowska In Miu Miu – ‘Stoker’ Sydney Premiere

Mia Wasikowska In Miu Miu - 'Stoker; Sydney Premiere

Mia Wasikowska was back home in Australia to attend the premiere of her latest movie, ‘Stoker’, during the 2013 Sydney Film Festival, held at the State Theatre in Sydney on Friday.

The actress opted for a simple look, wearing a black Miu Miu dress with an embellished collar and nipped in waist.

While I don’t find the dress particularly exciting, it is a very cute look for Mia; my main issue is the tights, which are then styled with black pumps.

The overall look is too moody and heavy. Just removing the tights would’ve lifted this look.

Elizabeth Debicki In Christian Dior – ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Elizabeth Debicki In Christian Dior - ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney Premiere

Elizabeth Debicki attended ‘The Great Gatsby’ Sydney premiere, held at Moore Park in Australia this evening, alongside co-star Carey Mulligan.

The up-and-coming Australian actress threw me without her raven bob, which she rocks in the movie.

She wore a Christian Dior Spring 2013 sleeveless cashmere top with a floral organza skirt, similar to a look which we’ve seen on Anna Wintour back in October.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for the celebs to move past this collection as I’m having a case of repetitive red carpet syndrome.

Cate Blanchett In Martin Grant – Qantas Uniform Unveiling

Cate Blanchett In Martin Grant - Qantas Uniform Unveiling

Our other favourite Aussie, Cate Blanchett, was seated in the front row at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney, Australia earlier today to see the unveiling of the new Qantas uniform, showcased by Miranda Kerr.

The actress, who is a long-time friend of Martin Grant, wore a black dress from his recent Fall 2013 collection.

Her short-sleeved fitted dress with fold details on the shoulders was simply styled with patent-leather accessories including Roger Vivier ‘Choc’ pumps.

She just oozes elegance no matter what she wears.

2013 Logie Awards

Logie Awards 1

A constellation of starlets came out to celebrate the small-screen at Aussie TV’s biggest night, the 2013 Logie Awards. The red carpet was on fire yesterday at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne, Australia, as gowns and glam took their starring roles.

Rebecca Judd: The model and TV presenter strutted out her svelte frame in a daring corseted creation by J’Aton Couture. The design duo behind J’Aton is a favourite of hers, as they also designed her wedding gown. But I wasn’t quite saying ‘I do’ to this number. With all the sheer chiffon paneling, glinting gold belt and the metallic netting, I could have done without the shoulder and sleeve detail—and that high ponytail ‘do.

Samara Weaving: ‘Red’ and ‘lace.’ When used together, they have the potential to commit the most serious of fashion sins. Not so on this Australian actress who was stunning in Steven Khalil, the designer darling of the Logies. With this sweeping gown and its tastefully see-through bodice, it’s not hard to see why.

Jesinta Campbell: The former Miss Universe Australia showed her pageant best in this glittery Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 midnight-blue gown. The criss-cross backside of the dress and the Lanvin chain reverse-necklace were far more intriguing than that ubiquitous plunge front. The clumsy black clutch didn’t fit in, and I would have liked to see Jesinta’s hair swept into a chic updo on this occasion.
