Australian celebs, I am appauled. One of my favourite nights of the year is Logies night- I sit in front of the TV glued to my seat…but only to look at the fashion walking down the red carpet. This year, and it pains me to say this, but…I was shocked.
No words can describe the pain I felt when ugly dress after ugly dress made an appearance on my screen. Man I feel horrible for saying this, but it’s true. There were, thankfully, some amazing moments that brought great sighs of relief, however I am yet to get over shocking dress after shocking dress that night.
Below are some highlights (and extreme lowlights) of the fashion on the night. I’m interested to hear what you guys think- maybe I’m being a harsh critic?
(and it was hard for me to choose just 5)
Claudia Karvan: I am lost for words. Was it hot or cold? The gloves are saying winter in New York, but the rolled up sleeves and hint of midriff are saying…I don’t even know what they’re saying, I’m that bewildered. She needs some serious re-growth touch ups, and the least she could do is add a bit of colour/bling/excitement with a necklace or two. Good actress, though.
Erin McNaught: For someone who works in the fashion industry, and someone so stunning, I’ve got to say she could have done a lot better. All she needed to do was lose the bat-wings from the bodice of the dress, and kept it nice and simple. Elegance is easier than it looks to pull off though, and even in this disaster of a dress, McNaught did hair, makeup and accesorising perfectly.
Gabriella Cilmi: There are just way too many trends going on at once here. The one shoulder/assymetrical design/deep purple-and-black/long sleeve/waist belted combo would look hideous on anyone trying to pull it off. Her hair should be off her face as it drags the dress down, and there’s way too much going on around her eyes.
Ruby Rose: What kills me the most here is that her face still looks absolutely stunning- even after being drowned out by everything going on on her body. The picture doesn’t really show it, but on the night the dress was gaping and lifting everywhere- it was way too big for her tiny frame. There was just too much going on- and teamed with the silver hair, she looked like she was trying too hard to be a rocker. If she had stuck to something simple, and let her amazing tatoos be her accesories, she would have been 100 times more stunning.
Brynne Gordon: I don’t even know who she is, but saying she stood out at this year’s Logies is an understatement. It’s like she’s channeling Nicole Kidman in Moulin Rouge, but with 100 timesÂ less class. There’s just way too much going on here- maybe for a fancy dress party, and even then she would look like one of the ‘trashier’ ones.
Natalie Bassingthwaight:She looked absolutely stunning- obviously helped along by a certain baby-glow! The dress hugged her pefectly- it wasn’t over the top in cut, design or colour. What I love about this look is she kept it very simple, with an elegant up-do and smokey eye to add a touch of glamour. I am in love with the sleeve and bodice of the dress- worst dressedm take note!
Esther Anderson: She looks stunning in this grecian draped dress. The pale peach is definately one of the bigger colours this season, and she accesorised perfectly with a silver bangle and beige clutch. Esther is proof that less really is more.
Jennifer Hawkins: Some fashion critics have said that Jen was too underdressed for the logies. I beg to differ. Dressing simply and being ‘under dressed’ are two very different things. Jen took a simple white dress and made it elegant with her wavy hair-do, heels and clutch. I prefer this look over any of the worst dressed girls who took risks and went over the top. Sometimes playing it safe and sticking to what you know looks good is a smart idea.
Jessica Marais: This look is my favourite look of the night. Like a lot of women on the night, she chose a black dress- but embraced an intricate bodice design for something different. This risk definately paid off- she stood out from the crowd in all the right ways, while still keeping simple and elegant. Her hair, makeup and accesories did not detract from the look of the dress. 10/10- she looks amazing.
Megan Gale: Yet another one who can take the black dress and make it their own. Gale looks sexy, yet sophisticated yet glamourous all at once. The plunging neckline made up for the floor-length style,Â and her hair, emphasized by drop chandeleir earrings, added a touch of Hollywood glamour to the look. I didn’t expect any less.
