Aussie celebrities who count themselves as fans of the Captiol attended the premiere of the hotly-anticipated movie adaption of The Hunger Games in Sydney last night. While Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth had press commitments Stateside keeping them from heading down under, Teresa Palmer and Sophie Lowe added some star power to the event, with Samantha Harris providing the glamour. They were joined by a plethora of Home & Away stars, both past and present, and their partners who all seemed to be favouring a red lip. See all the action up close now and tell us, are you just a wee bit excited for the release tomorrow?

Home & Away alumni Isabel Lucas is celebrating her 27th birthday on Sunday so we're rewinding over her time in the spotlight to see how her beauty look has evolved. From beachy waves to a turn as a brunette, one thing that has always remained a constant is Lucas' relaxed, boho vibe, with the actress weaving rope braids and beaded headwraps into her every day look.
It's the one before the race that stops a nation but that doesn't mean that Derby Day is any less glamorous than Melbourne Cup as several A-list racegoers proved at Flemington yesterday. Jennifer Hawkins, Rachael Taylor and many more stuck to the black and white dress code, finishing their look with a variety of hats and headpieces and a red lip here and there. We loved Rachael Taylor's entire look and also Jennifer Hawkins' retro 'do.
Home & Away star Rebecca Breeds walked the Logies red carpet with co-star and boyfriend Luke Mitchell. Rebecca wore her hair in a side-swept style with braiding up front that had gold threaded throughout. Her mauve shadow shimmered and sparkled, but she gave the soft and romantic makeup palette a tougher edge by rimming her eyes with kohl. Do you like the look?

Home & Away's Esther Anderson looks red hawt on the red carpet at tonight's Logies in Melbourne. Taking a twirl in her scarlet gown, she showed off her sleek ponytail to full effect. Her makeup look featured golden, glowing skin, a metallic eye that was water-lined with kohl, topped off with some faux lashes to add some extra volume and a frosted-finish lip. The sleek pony is very similar to the one Victoria Beckham wore to the royal wedding, no?

Hold. The. Phone. Ryan Kwanten is hot with a capital H. Currently based in LA, he's been jetting back and forth to his hometown of Sydney to promote new movie Red Hill and pick up his GQ Australia Man of The Year Award. Ca-ching! And as Ryan's been looking extremely dapper these days and we are checking out some of Australia's finest exports, we thought we'd take a trip down memory lane to see if he's always been so suave . . .
What a difference a year makes. Jodi Gordon had a bit of a bumpy ride in 2009—she went on a bender in Kings Cross with a bikie, broke-up with media heir Ryan Stokes and checked herself into rehab. Fast forward to 2010 and Jodi is the poster girl for clean living. She left Home & Away after a five year stint as Martha McKenzie and kept things on the DL, making only occasional red carpet appearances. She had roles in two movies, 25 and The Cup, and also started dating Sydney Roosters player Braith Anasta. The couple are regularly spotted working out near their home in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs looking all loved-up. Jodi could definitely teach some Hollywood celebrities a thing or two about getting back on track.
