Chicks at the flicks! Big Brother’s Lisa Clark, actress Danielle Cormack and more stars attend the launch of Sydney’s Moonlight cinema
Updated On: 12th December 2017
It’s usually seen as a romantic first date location for Australian couples.
But stars including Big Brother’s Lisa Clark and actress Danielle Cormack decided against bringing a date to the launch of Sydney’s Moonlight cinema on Thursday.
Lisa, who is now a freelance blogger, wore a stunningly simple black silk midi dress with spaghetti strap sleeves.
She kept her shoe choice in line with the girly ensemble she adorned and chose a pair of pale pink Vans.
A light tan made her pearly whites pop on the Thursday night opening, with a no-makeup look keeping the ensemble casual.
She paired the simplistic outfit with silver jewels, namely a collection of rings and thin-chained necklace.
According to her Instagram page, Lisa had spent the steamy summer day at Bronte Beach with Fox Sports presenter Matt Suleau.
And while Lisa had been a fan of the all-black look, Danielle Cormack went for the opposite tone with all-white cut out jeans and a linen business shirt.
She paired the look with a khaki-coloured hat and pair of matching Birkenstocks.
During the day Lisa celebrated parliament’s decision to change the marriage laws, posting an image of herself before the launch with the caption ‘love wins.’
Mike Goldman, who is most famous for his voiceovers on Big Brother, also joined the bevy of celebrities at the cinema evening.
He wore a grey striped dinner jacket and camel-coloured trousers, before later adding a pair of black sunglasses to the mix.
Home and Away actors Benedict Wall and Jessica Grace Smith arrived together in a decidedly casual get up of jeans and t-shirts.
Jessica opted for an embellished light-washed pair with rockstar David Lee Roth featuring on her tee.
The moonlight cinema runs from December 1 until April 1 at Belvedere Amphitheatre, Centennial Park.
