Delta Goodrem In Steven Khalil – 2014 ARIA Awards

Delta Goodrem In Steven Khalil - 2014 ARIA Awards

Delta Goodrem made a welcome return to the red carpet for the 28th Annual ARIA Awards held at the Star earlier today (November 26) in Sydney, Australia.

The Australian singer wore a Steven Khalil black look with a twist which may please those over the sheer trend.

From what I can make out the look is in three parts: bodysuit, leggings/tights and a sheer leather appliqué skirt.

Well, someone had to take this trend up a notch, and this is the most interesting interpretation yet.

A silver bodychain really wasn’t needed; the dress sold itself.

Sexy bed hair and silvery eye makeup completed the look.

Did she overcook it with the jewelry?

Logie Awards 2014

2014 Logie Awards - Arrivals

There were plenty more local celebs aside from Kylie and Dannii Minogue who attended the 2014 Logie Awards held at Crown Palladium on Sunday (April 27) in Melbourne, Australia.

Kate Ritchie: The former child actress is now with child, showcasing her baby bump on the red carpet wearing a deep-plum off-the-shoulder gown by her favourite designer: Steven Khalil. Featuring a thigh-high slit and dramatic train, the actress styled her maternity red carpet look with a gold clutch and maroon pumps.

Logie Awards 2

Jennifer Hawkins: Working a sexier look, the starlet wore a white Toni Maticevski two-piece featuring an off-the-shoulder crop top and a high-waist maxi skirt which was cut, twisted and embellished, creating a directional look. Beach waves and a gold cuff completed her look.

Asher Keddie: Usually my favourite at this event, I’m not sure Asher is pulling off this edgier piece by J’Aton Couture. The leather and sheer dress embroidered with a beautiful pattern isn’t the issue; it’s more the lacklustre hair and makeup. Such a bold look deserved more effort.

2013 Logie Awards

Logie Awards 1

A constellation of starlets came out to celebrate the small-screen at Aussie TV’s biggest night, the 2013 Logie Awards. The red carpet was on fire yesterday at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne, Australia, as gowns and glam took their starring roles.

Rebecca Judd: The model and TV presenter strutted out her svelte frame in a daring corseted creation by J’Aton Couture. The design duo behind J’Aton is a favourite of hers, as they also designed her wedding gown. But I wasn’t quite saying ‘I do’ to this number. With all the sheer chiffon paneling, glinting gold belt and the metallic netting, I could have done without the shoulder and sleeve detail—and that high ponytail ‘do.

Samara Weaving: ‘Red’ and ‘lace.’ When used together, they have the potential to commit the most serious of fashion sins. Not so on this Australian actress who was stunning in Steven Khalil, the designer darling of the Logies. With this sweeping gown and its tastefully see-through bodice, it’s not hard to see why.

Jesinta Campbell: The former Miss Universe Australia showed her pageant best in this glittery Salvatore Ferragamo Resort 2012 midnight-blue gown. The criss-cross backside of the dress and the Lanvin chain reverse-necklace were far more intriguing than that ubiquitous plunge front. The clumsy black clutch didn’t fit in, and I would have liked to see Jesinta’s hair swept into a chic updo on this occasion.

Who Wore Steven Khalil Better…Kate Richie or Jessica Mauboy?

Who Wore Steven Khalil Better Kate Richie or Jessica Mauboy

Back in April last year, Kate Richie wore a stunning midnight-blue sequined Steven Khalil gown which was made for such a glamorous occasion as the 2012 Logie Awards held in Melbourne, Australia.
She styled her gorgeous gown with an equally bedazzling clutch and stand-out jewels which didn’t upstage her frock.

Jessica Mauboy wore a beautiful red Steven Khalil gown on the red carpet for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards in Sydney yesterday, but in the press room – where she showed off her Best Supporting Actress award – she had changed into the same gown we saw on Kate.

Both styled their hair into chic updos and carried some serious bling, but Jessica wins for me as the gown is more flattering around her chest.

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

2nd Annual AACTA Awards Red Carpet Round Up

There were plenty more divine ladies besides Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman who took to the red carpet on Wednesday evening for the 2nd Annual AACTA Awards, held at The Star in Sydney, Australia.

Jessica Mauboy: The singer/actress picked up her first AACTA Award – Best Supporting Actress for her role in ‘Sapphires’ – wearing a breathtaking Steven Khalil red gown. This is not the first time I have been wowed by the Australian designer, who is also loved by actress Kate Ritchie.

Gracie Otto: This is the second run out for this Gucci Spring 2013 saffron-yellow gown, as Bipasha Basu wore this gown on Monday. Gracie had the good sense to kept this look minimal and not overwhelm it with unnecessary jewels, styling the look with a clear Gucci clutch from the same collection.

Essie Davis: The actress certainly knows how to make an entrance. She was simply captivating wearing a red Leah Da Gloria floor-sweeping gown with a slashed neckline and lace panels on the three-quarter-length sleeves. The three red gowns ruled this red carpet: Cate, Jessica and Essie.

Kate Ritchie In Steven Khalil – ‘Les Miserables’ Sydney Premiere

As 2012 draws to a close Kate Ritchie wanted to see out the year with a bang at the ‘Les Miserables’ Sydney premiere this evening in Australia.

In the absence of Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway, Kate provided the eye candy wearing a custom Steven Khalil gown.

Her red strapless gown with a slit in the bodice and lace inserts in the skirt is quite spectacular.

I’m trying to picture the gown without the inserts and I have a feeling it wouldn’t have been as dramatic so kudos to the designer for thinking outside of the box.

Even though I have a soft spot for Katie, this gown deserves a place on the BDOTW poll as she looks chic and elegant.

Do you agree?
