Last night, The Hobbit actress literally reflected light on the red carpet at the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards held in Sydney, Australia. She wore a bold, body-hugging gown from Armani Privé's spring 2009 collection, covered in bright red sequins (shining brighter than the carpet itself) complete with structured cap-sleeve shoulders and black trim. She followed her gown's strict black-and-red color code, pairing her look with black heels and long black earrings. She pulled her blonde hair into a bun and swept her bangs to the side, as to keep it all sleek.
