While the British Isles continues to be stuck under grey skies, Hayden Panettiere's latest red-carpet appearance reminds us that further afield, people are enjoying sunnier climes and seasonally-appropriate clothing.
The Nashville star looked every inch the beach beauty last night as she lit up the Entertainment Weekly and ABC Upfront party in New York.
The 23-year-old actress chose a figure-flaunting strappy bodycon dress in a skin-enhancing shade of purple which she dressed down with suede shoe-boots and a just-back-from-the-beach messy fishtail braid.
With just a hint of eye makeup, Hayden's natural beauty really stood out. Proof that a Californian lifestyle is definitely good for you.
