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.
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.
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.
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?
The 2012 Women Of Style Awards hosted by InStyle Australia was held at the Carriage Works earlier today in Sydney, Australia.
Miranda Kerr: The ‘Readers’ Choice’ winner stole everyone’s thunder by looking sensational wearing a Carla Zampatti gown. The pale-blue gown cut low at the back and front was styled with gold sandals and spectacular gold jewels. A red pout and simple ponytail completed her look. The day Miranda or Rosie look bad is the day the world is coming to an end.
Kate Ritchie: The former ‘Home and Away’ actress stunned once again wearing a Steven Khalil dress. The designer took a simple strapless dress and turned it on its head by adding dramatic pleats on the bodice, a half peplum and a gold metal waistband. A gold clutch and nude pumps completed her look. The only downside is her foundation which is too light for her complexion.
Lara Bingle: Sporting the same 50s French roll hairstyle Charlize Theron wore to her premiere last night, Lara wore a Romance Was Born printed polka-dot dress. Whilst Lara has great fashion connections, she never really takes ownership of what she’s wearing. She’s like a mannequin.
Erika Heynatz: The TV presenter/model wore a Ferragamo Spring 2012 colour-block red-and-raspberry look which consisted of a plunging blouse with a wrap skirt. I’m not crazy about the bow-front peep-toes, but I do love her complementary woven Ferragamo clutch. The look would’ve been perfect for me had she worn Solange Knowles two-tone Ferragamo sandals.
Delta Goodrem was joined by many more stars on the red carpet at the 2012 Logie Awards held at Melbourne’s Crown Palladium to celebrate Australia’s finest talents on television.
Megan Gale: It’s no surprise to see Megan wearing an Alex Perry gown as she’s worn the designer on several occasions. Her sultry black dress with sheer panels including a deep-v cut-out was teamed with a black-and-white Bulgari clutch. Had the clutch been nude and black, this look would’ve been a perfect 10. As presented, it’s a 9.5.
Kate Richie: My, hasn’t Sally Fletcher grown. Those who grew up watching ‘Home & Away’ after school won’t recognise Kate Ritchie. I can’t believe she’s now 33 years old and looking absolutely stunning wearing a Steven Khalil midnight-blue gown. She really brought the glamour to this event with her sequined dress and with an equally bedazzling clutch and jewels. Ladylike sexy chic red-carpet dressing at its best.
Asher Keddie: You can’t have a high-profile event in Australia without a look from the Australian Couture kings from J’Aton Couture. It would be like an Oscars without Elie Saab. This might be the Marmite dress of the group; you’ll either love it or hate it. I love it. It’s tantalizing sheer without being tacky, as it’s worn with much grace and sophistication. The attention to detail on the embroidery is magnificent and Asher let the dress do all the talking by not adding any accessories.
