It’s no secret that Australia makes great television, and even less of a secret, we do amazing fashion. These worlds collided on the red carpet of the 2014 TV Week Logie Awards, with our biggest and brightest stars turning out in stunning fashion. With a heavy dose of Australian designers, we’ve shown that we’re on equal footing with the worlds best.
One of the biggest trends on the red carpet was sculptural cut gowns, and while it was worn by many, Natalie Bassingthwaite, Jennifer Hawkins, and Kat Stewart rose to the top. Opting for a newcomer designer, Natalie Bassingthwaite looked every part of old Hollywood glamour in a stunning lilac gown by Bei Na Wei. The soft colour palate and the structural aesthetic of the gown played against each other beautifully, and soft curls with a red lip completed the look to perfection.
The always stunning Jennifer Hawkins flew the Australian designer banner high, in an amazing two piece look by couture maestro, Toni Maticevski. The delicate gathering on the skirt interplayed with the structural bodice made for a striking look, one which was perfectly showcased against Jennifer’s tanned skin. As is her signature, hair and make up was kept simple and natural.
Underbelly actress Kat Stewart also chose a Toni Maticevski look; a bold asymmetric gown with a sculpted accent shoulder. The black colour palate looked amazing against her skin tone, and the side split added extra drama. Keeping the look contemporary, hair and make up was natural and soft.
What’s an award show without a little glitz? Luckily, many of the guests were more than happy to oblige. X Factor judge Dannii Minogue led the pack in a strapless, sweetheart neckline gown by Paolo Sebastian. While the gown was heavily embellished, the cut was simple, keeping the look from being over the top. Classic accessories and glamourous hair and make up completed the look.
Rebecca Judd embraced the illusion trend, with a showstopping lace and silk lilac princess gown by J’Aton Couture. The tiered colour palate lengthened her already stunning frame, and the embellishment looked dripped on. A sleek pony, and a smokey eye completed her look.
Also in J’Aton was Jessica Marais, opting for a sleek silver lamé off the shoulder gown. The dress looked perfectly fitted, almost painted on, and with the off the shoulder detail, was perfectly on trend. The added choker made the look contemporary and interesting, and sleek hair and make up completed the stunning look.
BLACK, WHITE, AND STUNNING ALL OVER
Black and white is always right, and this red carpet was no different. Iconic songbird Kylie Minogue made her return to the Logies in triumphant fashion, in a classic column gown by Roberto Cavalli. The off-white gown was overlaid with delicate lace with appliqués, keeping the look from reading plain, and signature side swept curls with smokey eyes completed the look.
Myer ambassador and MTV VJ, Kate Peck stayed true to her rock chic style in a monochromatic stripped gown by AG Arthur Galan. The asymmetric hemline against the stripes added extra drama, and a smokey eye against her platinum hair completed her look.
Also flying the flag for Myer was Lauren Phillips in Aurelio Costarella. The crisp white with a modern silhouette stunned on the carpet, and will be quick to be added to bridal inspo pintrest boards. A red lip and tousled up do completed the look.
Not all gowns were understated, there were three amazing showstopping gowns that kept everyone stunned. Jesinta Campbell was one of the few that opted for a sleeve on her gown, created by Steven Khalil. The crisp white kept it from looking heavy, and the cut fit her body like a second skin. A sleek up do and natural make up completed the look.
Easily the best dressed on the night, Gold Logie nominee Carrie Bickmore looked every bit of the princess in her Paolo Sebastian gown. The colour palate was perfect on her skin tone, and the full skirt was a pointed difference to everyone else on the carpet. Soft curls and a bronzed smokey eye completed the look.
Network Ten’s Sandra Sully also chose J’Aton for her gown, looking like a Grecian goddess in the white draped gown. The added capelet added interest to the gown, and the soft white played perfectly against the structured bodice. A side swept bun and bronzed make up completed the look.
BEST OF THE MEN
While we praise our favourite women for their fabulous fashion, we can’t overlook the best (dressed) men. Iconic designer Alex Perry looked classic in a perfectly fitted black suit, complete with power tie. Classic dress shoes and his signature sunglasses completed his look.
Bondi Vet Chris Brown opted for a clean cut tux for his look by Calibre. Switching the traditional tie for a bow tie separated him from the rest, and added a formal touch to his look.
Model/DJ and host, Didier Cohen also chose a bow tie, but switched a black tuxedo jacket for a grey double breasted dinner coat. Still honouring the formality of the night, his look was a more youthful take on event wear.
