Jaime King has long been known for her modeling career and by the moniker James, but she's also been building her acting resume. She's even about to star alongside Rachel Bilson on the TV series Hart of Dixie. In anticipation of the show's September premiere, Jaime has been making her presence felt on a lot of recent red carpets.

She naturally made an appearance at the CBS, The CW and Showtime TCA Party out in Beverly Hills earlier this month. Her Valentino Fall 2011 drop waist halter dress featured a lace bodice, which she combined with a pewter clutch and nude Lucifer bow pumps by Christian Louboutin. The actress also hit RadioShack's HTC EVO 3D Launch Party in West Hollywood in June where she opted to pair a Louis Vuitton printed top with a Vivienne Westwood skirt. Sergio Rossi peep-toe heels, M.C.L by Matthew Campbell Laurenza bangles and earrings completed the collaborative look.

June was a busy month for Jaime. She attended several events including the ELLE Spa Launch Party at Eden Roc Renaissance Miami Beach. This ivory Calvin Klein Spring 2011 number was teamed with Brian Atwood Rina sandals, Jimmy Choo's Lexie clutch as well as Calla earrings and Kiss ring both by Vhernier. Proenza Schouler's colorful coral embellished Spring 2011 frock made Jaime stand out at the Los Angeles premiere of Super 8. That sheer hemline drew attention to her black Maniac Brian Atwood pumps, while Vhernier gems and a metallic Jimmy Choo Claudia clutch also served as accessories.

That same day the CW star also went to the Lexington Social House Grand Opening. She definitely projected a more relaxed vibe in Paige Premium Denim’s Verdugo leggings in Super-McKinley in conjunction with a black buttoned blazer and flashy top. Back in November 2009, Jaime made her way to the GQ Men of the Year Party in Los Angeles. This Marc Jacobs Fall 2009 selection has a gathered front as well as an uneven hem and was partnered with gold heels.

At the Art of Elysium’s 3rd Annual Gala in Beverly Hills in January 2010, Jaime opted for a blue Burberry Prorsum Spring 2010 number. That silver clutch complemented the silk gown remarkably well. Another Burberry Prorsum dress, this time in grey, was her choice for the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival premiere of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse in June of that year.

When Disney ABC Family held its 2010 Summer TCA Tour at The Beverly Hilton Hotel last August, Jaime worked the event in an Elise Øverland dress. It was actually modified from the runway with the updated version missing the sleeves. Sequins and a cheetah print may seem like strange bedfellows, but as the actress demonstrated at the UK Style by French Connection Launch Party in Los Angeles this March, the combination can have surprising results. Unlike fellow guest Nicky Hilton who decided to belt the ferocious frock, Jaime relied on a pair of Yves Saint Laurent black pumps to finish off her wild look.
