Australia's favourite actors walked the red carpet ahead of the industry's night of nights on Wednesday They sported some of the most popular emerging trends including sheer fabric, sequins and trains But some proved it takes more than being on trend to have style - while others nailed their fresh looks

Australia’s favourite movie and television stars turned out in fine form for the industry night of nights with many jumping on board emerging style trends including the three-piece white power suit and ultra sheer fabrics.

But as the stars hit the red carpet it became obvious some were able to pull off the trending looks much better than others.

Here FEMAIL takes a look at each trend, highlighting the stars who nailed the assignment and those whose ‘cool ‘fits’ didn’t quite make the grade.

Trains

Elsa Pataky absolutely nailed the train trend on Wednesday, when she graced the red carpet alongside husband Chris Hemsworth.

The blonde beauty was the best dressed woman in the room and cemented her status as an iconic beauty.

Olivia De Jonge on the other hand failed to impress, despite the epic proportions of the train, which did flow well from her shoulders.

The Elvis actress wore snake skin platform heels, a chunky choker and rose eyeshadow to match her gown and while it was obvious a lot of work went into putting the look together it was quickly judged among the worst of the night.
