Phoebe Tonkin leads the celebrity red carpet arrivals at 2021 AACTA Awards in Sydney

A dazzling procession of celebrities arrived in style at the 2021 AACTA Awards in Sydney on Wednesday.

She wore her blonde locks down in sculpted waves and accessorised the look with drop earrings and black pointed-toe heels.

Rebel was primped to perfection, sporting a spray tan and dramatic makeup, including false lashes, pink blush and a peach-hued lipstick. 

Having flown halfway across the world from Los Angeles to appear at AACTAs, it was no wonder Rebel appeared thrilled to make her big red carpet entrance at the event. 

Rebel’s appearance at the awards show comes after she was granted permission by the New South Wales Government to skip mandatory 72-hour quarantine. 

Unlike the vast majority of international travellers, Rebel was able to visit a public park at 5pm on Monday – just hours after touching down in Sydney at 8.30am.
