It’s no Oscars, but the TV Week Logie Awards sure do get Australia excited. Sunday night saw the small screen’s brightest stars take to the red carpet and then the awards stage for Australian television’s ‘night of nights’.
Red carpets are arguably the most popular event of any award show and the Logies are no exception. Various shades of red and pink seemed to be the popular choice of dress with Carrie Bickmore and Delta Goodrem among those to don red gowns.

Gold Logie nominee Jessica Marais went for a sheer, glittering dress reminiscent of Beyoncè. Elegant, chic black gowns also made appearances on Asher Keddie, Rebecca Gibney and Tina Arena.
