What the stars will be wearing to the Logies

The West Australian

27 April 2005


Goddesses and housewives ruled America's Golden Globe Awards, but who will be Australian television's style queen - or king - at the Logie Awards?

The scramble for frocks is under way as the stars and major television networks vie for the best gowns. And with the Logies on Sunday, designers, stylists and the actors are busy doing deals over who will wear what.

Network Seven stars alone will walk down the red carpet wearing jewellery worth a total of more than $1 million.

Some of the frocks on show will be West Australian. Network Seven has revealed that Home and Away starlet Indiana Evans, who is nominated for most popular new female talent, will wear a gown by WA designer Roberto Pierucci.

But the Cinderella moment will go to her rival, Neighbours starlet Natalie Blair, who is also nominated for most popular new talent and who is having her crystal shoes flown in from Venice to complement a ming-blue satin and silk halter-neck dress by Brisbane designer Gina Kim.

Glynis Traill-Nash, fashion news editor at Australia's In-Style magazine, said she expected lots of ruffles, pleats and bows. Colours would be in, the traditional standby~ of black would be out and hair would be loose and natural.

"I think pretty is going to be a key word," Ms Traill-Nash said. "I think the fashion will be feminine and pretty with pastel colours such as peaches and silvery shades."

But Ms Traill-Nash warned that the Logies were as well known for their fashion misses as their fashion hits. "The Logies are known as much for their bad taste as for their good," she said. "Not many people have stylists here so they can only blame themselves when they get it wrong."

She said those who usually got the Logies look right included actresses Georgie Parker, Claudia Karvan and Tammy MacIntosh.

Candidates for the worst dressed list included repeat offenders Susie Elelman, Kerri-Ann Kennerley and Annaleise Braekensiek. "Gretel Killeen could go either way," Ms Traill-Nash said.

Network Seven stylist Kelly Smythe said the goddess look would carry over from the Golden Globes to the Australian red carpet.

"It will be complete elegance," Ms Smythe said. "There's a combination of a soft palette with a vintage feel."

Ms Smythe said Seven stars would wear jewellery valued at between $1.5 and $2 million with some individual pieces worth more than $200,000.

Melbourne menswear designer Dom Bagnato said yesterday he was dressing Rove Live host Rove McManus in a sophisticated but modern two-button black dinner suit. "The Logies is our Australian version of the Golden Globes," Bagnato said. "I think there will be lots of powerful looks this year. People are feeling more positive and that's usually reflected in the way they dress."

At Network Ten, two stars have been confirmed as wearing WA designs. Rove Live's Corinne Grant will wear Pierucci and Neighbours' Nell Feeney will be dressed by Dana Mathers.

Big Brother's Gretel Killeen will wear a purple satin gown with a vintage Indian ornament sewn into the neckline by Annebelle van Tongeren. Presenter Sandra Sully, who created a stir earlier this year for showing cleavage while delivering a news bulletin, has opted for an Escada gow~n.

At Network Seven, WA designs will also get an outing with Great Outdoors glamour girl Laura Csortan likely to wear a gown by WA designer Aurelio Costarella and Saturday Disney show host Sara Groen likely to wear a Ruth Tarvydas creation.

Home and Away's Isabelle Lucas will wear a Collette Dinnigan, Ian "Dicko" Dickson will be dressed by hot menswear label Brent Wilson, Blue Heelers' Samantha Tolj will wear a Toni Maticevski number and Georgie Parker will wear vintage.

At Network Nine, football front man and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire host Eddie McGuire has chosen a top-drawer Armani suit.

Travel show host Catriona Rowntree will wear a creation by designer Alex Perry, Celebrity Overhaul's Deborah Hutton will be dressed by Matthew Eager and 60 Minutes presenter Liz Hayes will wear Giorgio Armani.

The TV Week Logie Awards will be held at Melbourne's Crown Casino.

I really can't wait for the Logies and also to see what the stars wear in particular Laurie Foell. When I spoke to Laurie she described it as beautiful and other stuff. She gave me a description, colour, designer etc on the dress and it made me really want to see it!!!! I really can't wait!
