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.

21.12.12 Premiere

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.

Do you agree?

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.

Do you agree?

2012 ARIA Awards

The 2012 ARIA Awards held at the Sydney Entertainment Centre in Sydney, Australia earlier today:

Kimbra: There was no danger of missing the singer/songwriter on the red carpet at this event. She donned a printed and feather-skirted creation by Sydney-based designer, Anna Langdon. The aquamarine hue on the bodice of her dress was matched with silver toe-cap ankle-strap pumps and her coral glitter clutch matched her skirt. I like that a lot of thought went into this look, but I wish the lip colour was toned down a tad.

Ruby Rose: Sporting a part-cane-row ‘do, the TV presenter wore a fiery Romance is Born dress. There is a lot going on in such a small space, with the dress featuring fringed sleeves, a high neckline, a tri-colour in-yer-face print and a skater skirt. Add in the tattoos, the colour and the striking red heels and you have a rock chick look that Kat von D would be proud to rock.

Missy Higgins: There were more loud prints to be had on this red carpet, courtesy of the singer. She wore an Ode To None graphic print dress, which she styled with blue suede shoes and a gold Alexandra Blak cuff.Read More…

Yao Chen In Georges Hobeika Couture – ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ World Premiere

Yao Chen joined Cate Blanchett on the red carpet this evening in Wellington, New Zealand for the world premiere of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

The actress clearly didn’t want to go unnoticed on the red carpet, so she donned a beautiful Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture ball gown.

This stunning look fills the void left by Zhang Ziyi, who used to be our go-to gal for pretty ball gowns.

Yao’s powder-blue tulle strapless ball gown with velvet touches and intricate embroidery details on the skirt gave me chills.

I’m typing covered in goosebumps as you know I live for a princess moment.

A small Kotur clutch, a half-up, half-down hairstyle and Bulgari drop earrings completed her BDOTW-worthy look.

I’m at a loss for words as to how spectacular this gown is.

Take a look at the close up to see Yao is sporting cute Elf ears.
