As a guest, the word can either send shivers down your spine or a thrill of excitement. It’s fun catching up with people that I don’t get to see often….or people that I think I know. One year, I had a great chat with Alf from Home and Away until I remembered that we’d never actually met before. I’d seen him in my living room for so many years that I felt like I knew him. I’m sure he and his wife had a great giggle about that nut bag he met at the Logies.
Nut bag or not, it’s crucial to look the goods on the night. Fifteen years ago, I’d find a dress a few days before the event and then iron my hair on my ironing board before hitting the red carpet! These days, a dress has to be cross-checked with other attendees, approved by different departments and get the fashion nod by the critics. Basically, the planets have to align.
My style lends itself towards classic Hollywood glamour. I’m not fashion-forward, retro is jarring to me and its hard to criticise old world glamour. I’ve hosted the red carpet special for Nine many times and the stand out dresses are always classic with a dash of sex appeal.
Below are some of the creations I’ve worn over the past 17 years of attending the Logies. Most of them are there, but I couldn’t track them all down as social media wasn’t around in the late ’90’s! Some good, some questionable…but this time, you be the judge!
