Though she may not grace our screens all too often, actress Camilla Belle rarely puts a fashion foot out of line. A frequent feature on the best dressed lists, Belle knows how to make simplicity stand out.

Most of us probably remember Camilla best as the adorable Molly in the made for TV Annie movie of 1995. But orphan chic aside, Belle is becoming far better known for her status as a style icon who always appears polished and classic yet edgy and original.

Belle was one of the first stars to brave the colour blocking trend last season, pulling it off in jewel-toned Gucci three piece outfit. It would appear that the actress likes to take a risk, often opting for YSL inspired tuxedos and pant suits on the red carpet. Though Camilla routinely chooses demure and elegant dresses in monochrome colours, there is an underlying sense of sultry sexiness and a powerful attitude that saves her from getting lost in the bland and boring category.
