The fashion industry has been a hive of industrious fervour preparing for last night’s Logies. As always, the red carpet was aflutter with glamazons arriving for the 59th annual Logie Awards. Known to be an indulgent industry occasion, with excitement, slurs, fashion rights and wrongs, (often bewildering our international guests un-attuned to our particular Aussie quirks), last night did not disappoint. Some more so than others, starting with the display of sartorial affluence on the magic red carpet.
Carrie Bickmore effortlessly sashayed down the red carpet in a gown that appeared simple, but actually underwent ten incarnations on the designer Paolo Sebastian’s desk. The result was a mix of simplicity and old Hollywood glamour and Carrie rocked it. It was definitely Oscars-worthy with drama and an impressive train.
Love Child darling Jessica Marais definitely raised a few admiring eyebrows and caused a stir in a sheer beige, embroidered gown that was described in the Sydney Morning Herald as more embellishment than gown. Again, body hugging, smouldering perfection and it was a definite winner.
Many of the women seem to have gotten the memo to wear red and embraced various hues of the sensual colour. Some worked the hue better than others, but those deserving of an honourable mention are Delta Goodrem in stunning full length, body con siren red, with Karl Stefanovic gushing over her hotness factor. He went on to joke about their rumoured but unsubstantiated “tabloid relationship”.
Offspring heroine and multiple gold Logie winner Asher Keddie rarely disappoints and was pure class in an asymmetrical off the shoulder black, slimline gown with her hair swept up in a simple do that highlighted her features. Let’s face it: the girl nailed it and always does.
Shelley Craft pulled together a totally elegant look with a sleek updo and an elegant, silhouette navy gown. Sophisticated elegance and class. Killed it. Go girl.
But the winner of the night was arguably Anna Heinrich. The former Bachelor star shared the down low of her ensemble on her Instagram account just before she arrived and she definitely made a statement. Elegant and simultaneously sexy, she rocked a gold, bead-embellished Steven Khalil figure hugging gown that screamed Hollywood. Letting her dress be the statement piece, she accessorised with a rose-gold Mimco clutch and Stuart Weitzman heels. The hair and makeup brief was simple, with a nude lip and loose wavy hair. Perfection.
That wraps up another year of sartorial hits at the annual beacon of Australia’s film and television night of nights. Bring on more fabulousness and flair in 2018.
