Camilla Belle became a regular on numerous best dressed lists last year. The actress probably gets more credit for her fashion sense than her acting roles, though. Camilla does have a few big projects in the works for 2012, including Paradise Lost with Bradley Cooper and Mary Mother of Christ alongside Al Pacino.

The rising star enjoys taking calculated risks when it comes to style. Her kelly green Max Azria ruffled mini was a relatively safe selection, however, for the 2009 Whitney Contemporaries Art Party and Auction back in June 2009. David Yurman gems polished off the look. She was a bit more daring at the presentation of the Rodeo Drive Walk of Style Award in October 2009. Camilla’s embroidered Marchesa Spring 2010 white dress featured feather details and was complemented by a pair of black heels.

This Alexander McQueen Spring 2010 number had Camilla standing out at the Los Angeles premiere of 2012 the following month. Her multi-color embellished dress had a bustle skirt and was combined with Cartier jewels, a clutch by Alexander McQueen, and nude Casadei pumps. At the 3rd Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Party in Los Angeles in March 2010, Camilla opted for a leaf print sheath from Jason Wu. The gold embellished dress is from the designer's Fall 2010 collection.

Yves Saint Laurent actually sponsored the Metropolitan Opera's premiere of Armida at Lincoln Center in New York City that April, so Camilla fittingly selected a creation from the fashion house's Edition Soir collection. Her strapless gown included ruffles, embroidery and an oversized black bow. Yves Saint Laurent was also behind her ivory gold-trim clutch and her shoes, while the jewelry was by Cartier. She went with Derek Lam for the 2010 Freedom Awards in Los Angeles in November of that year. Camilla's embellished Spring 2011 nude top and black skirt combo was styled with more Cartier gems, a Raven Kauffman Couture clutch, and black Katie Lee pumps by Brian Atwood.

When Gucci and Roc Nation hosted the Pre-Grammy Brunch in West Hollywood this past February, Camilla absolutely stunned in this colorful Gucci Spring 2011 look. Her vivid orange blazer was partnered with a purple top and green slacks. Even her suede heels and gold belt came straight from the runway. It was a bright coral-colored frock for Good Housekeeping's Shine On Awards in New York City last April. Camilla's embellished Alberta Ferretti Fall 2011 dress was teamed with Christian Louboutin Luxura pumps and a Salvatore Ferragamo red clutch.

Tom Ford's white suit was Camilla's unconventional choice for the 13th Annual Young Hollywood Awards in May of last year. Raven Kauffman Couture’s Luisa frost clutch and black Sergio Rossi Cachet pumps completed the tuxedo-inspired look. Her white floral print number from Miu Miu's Fall 2011 line was a more feminine option for the Miu Miu Presents Lucrecia Martel’s Muta event in July. Camilla's Cartier jewelry and Miu Miu glitter pumps picked up on the understated sequins in her dress.
