Isabel Lucas In Christian Dior – Christian Dior Sydney Boutique Opening

Isabel Lucas In Christian Dior - Christian Dior Sydney Boutique Opening

Isabel Lucas attended the opening of the Christian Dior boutique in Sydney, Australia today.

The blonde-haired beauty wore one of the bolder pieces from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 collection, which was this beautiful multi-coloured metallic organza strapless dress with a waterfall skirt.

My first thought was thank God the red carpet is black, as I fear her shoe choice may have put me off the overall look.

A green pair of strappy sandals would’ve been my choice, but I guess Isabel did make the right choice by allowing the focus to fall solely on the dress.

How would you’ve styled this look?

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

There were plenty more divine ladies besides Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman who took to the red carpet on Wednesday evening for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards, held at The Star in Sydney, Australia.

Jessica Mauboy: The singer/actress picked up her first AACTA Award – Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Sapphires’ – wearing a breathtaking Steven Khalil red gown. This is not the first time I have been wowed by the Australian designer, who is also loved by actress Kate Ritchie.

Gracie Otto: This is the second run out for this Gucci Spring 2013 saffron-yellow gown, as Bipasha Basu wore this gown on Monday. Gracie had the good sense to kept this look minimal and not overwhelm it with unnecessary jewels, styling the look with a clear Gucci clutch from the same collection.

Essie Davis: The actress certainly knows how to make an entrance. She was simply captivating wearing a red Leah Da Gloria floor-sweeping gown with a slashed neckline and lace panels on the three-quarter-length sleeves. The three red gowns ruled this red carpet: Cate, Jessica and Essie.

Gemma Arterton In Vivienne Westwood – 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Gemma Arterton In Vivienne Westwood - 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Following the Australian premiere of their latest movie, ‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’, Gemma Arterton and Jeremy Renner stepped out for a second night in a row to attend the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney, Australia this evening.

Jeremy looked very handsome in a classic black Dior Homme tux, while Gemma wore another British designer, Vivienne Westwood.

Her off-the-shoulder lilac shimmering gown was styled with the same Christian Dior Spring 2013 shoes we saw her wear a few weeks ago with a different Westwood dress.

The dress does a wonderful job of showcasing Gemma’s gorgeous hourglass figure, but the shoes don’t work for me.

Considering her décolletage is on display, an open-toe shoe would’ve been preferred to create a better balance.

Opting for a pop of bright colour, Gemma’s lips looked luscious in a punchy pink shade, with silver jewels and a braided updo providing the finishing touches.

Nicole Kidman In Erdem – 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Nicole Kidman In Erdem - 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

After topping the best-dressed list for her SAG Awards gown on Sunday, Nicole Kidman was back home to celebrate the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney, Australia this evening where she joined Cate Blanchett.

Supporting another London-based designer, Nicole wore an Erdem Spring 2013 summery frock.

The yellow strapless dress with a double-layered skirt, featuring light-blue floral embroidery and lace appliqués, was styled with nude peep-toe Brian Atwood ‘Evie’ heels and gold drop earrings with an aqua-blue stone.

I’m not as excited about this look as I should be as I don’t think this shade of yellow is right for Nicole’s pale complexion.

What do you think?

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé – 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Cate Blanchett In Armani Privé - 2nd Annual AACTA Awards

Being a night owl, it can often take me a while to get up in the morning, so I peruse Getty Images from my iPad to give me inspiration to get up.

You can imagine that I jumped up like my butt was on fire when I saw Cate Blanchett on the red carpet for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held at The Star in Sydney, Australia this evening.

It has been a while since she graced the red carpet wearing Armani Privé, so I’m ecstatic to see her wearing a look from the Spring 2009 collection, which I have always noted was made for Cate.

Her fiery red Asian-inspired bold-shoulder gown, covered in shimmering red square lacquer sequins with a black trim, was styled with some pretty uninspiring footwear.

Considering this look slams every look from the SAG Awards, she gets a free pass.

Instead of the black tasselled detail at the waist, Cate opted for black drop earrings to spice up her hawt look.

Flawless makeup, which gave her a rosy glow, and a bun with side-swept bangs provided the finishing touches.

Needless to say, even with those shoes, this look will be added to my BDOTY list.

Rose Byrne In Jill Stuart – ‘I Give It A Year’ Sydney Premiere

Rose Byrne In Jill Stuart - ‘I Give It A Year’ Sydney Premiere

After attending the G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala over the weekend, Rose Byrne was back home in Australia to attend the premiere of her latest movie, ‘I Give It A Year’, held at the Event Cinema George Street in Sydney.

The pretty brunette wore a Jill Stuart Fall 2012 dress.

Her berry dress, with a sheer top and leather skirt, was styled with black Casadei pumps with a cream trim and the signature ‘Blade’ heel, a black Kotur clutch, an Adeler ring and Misaki earrings.

A simple updo and barely-there makeup completed her look.

The soft leather skirt adds an edge to her sleeveless shirt dress with an intense hue; I just wish her accessories had a bit more bite.

Kate Ritchie In Steven Khalil – ‘Les Miserables’ Sydney Premiere

As 2012 draws to a close Kate Ritchie wanted to see out the year with a bang at the ‘Les Miserables’ Sydney premiere this evening in Australia.

In the absence of Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway, Kate provided the eye candy wearing a custom Steven Khalil gown.

Her red strapless gown with a slit in the bodice and lace inserts in the skirt is quite spectacular.

I’m trying to picture the gown without the inserts and I have a feeling it wouldn’t have been as dramatic so kudos to the designer for thinking outside of the box.

Even though I have a soft spot for Katie, this gown deserves a place on the BDOTW poll as she looks chic and elegant.

Taylor Swift In Elie Saab – 2012 ARIA Awards

Taylor Swift attended the 2012 ARIA Awards held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre 2012 in Sydney, Australia earlier today.

The country singer looked absolutely breath-taking wearing an Elie Saab Spring 2013 gown.

Her ivory sleeveless chiffon gown with a banded bodice is a beautiful ethereal look, but sadly it was so wrong for the occasion.

With the majority of the stars on this red carpet wearing mini dresses with futuristic prints, Taylor looked a tad overdressed, clearly not judging the vibe of this event correctly.

I won’t deny she looks stunning, especially the way she styled her look with a chic updo and stunning jewels, but this is a classic case of right dress, wrong occasion but still a BDOTW contender.
