Australian TV's night of nights is fast approaching and in celebration we're taking a look back at the most glamorous beauty moments of 2012. Take a closer look at the hair and makeup styles of Jennifer Hawkins, Megan Gale, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Delta Goodrem, Asher Keddie, Lisa Wilkinson and many, many more and tell us who sported your favourite red carpet look of the night.
Television's night of nights is taking place this Sunday, but before we see the latest lineup of stars hit the red carpet, we're focusing on what's arguably the most important part of the Logies: the hair and makeup. More specifically, the best beauty looks from some of our all-Australian golden girls. This year, gorgeous blonde TV presenter Carrie Bickmore is in the running for the biggest award of the night — The Gold Logie — but no matter the outcome, she's always a winner on the red carpet. From her shiny, voluminous hair, to Kate Ritchie's navy smoky eye and Rebecca Gibney's ageless beauty, the best looks are lined up here for you to peruse. Click through to check them all out, and stayed tuned for when we bring you all the action as it happens on Sunday night!
The Logies have wrapped up for another year. We’ve pored over all the red carpet fashion and shared some fun, candid snaps from the night at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne. We’ve zoomed in on the best accessories and makeup and hair looks. Now it’s time to talk about the night. Here are some of the most memorable moments:
Adam Hills does Angelina Jolie’s right leg: Adam Hills was the first presenter of the night and kicked things off with a reference to Angelina Jolie’s infamous right leg at the Oscars. (Adam stuck out his left leg through a split in his trousers.) His opening jokes were also reminiscent of Ricky Gervais’ hosting style at the Golden Globes. One of Adam’s quips: “No one wants to host the Logies. It’s like being one of Gina Rinehart’s children — it sounds good but you don’t get anything out of it.”
Prue and Trude make a cameo: Jane Turner and Gina Riley, aka Kath and Kim, hit the Logies stage as their other alter egos Prue and Trude. With their matching aprons and signature drawls they had a great time saying certain words before presenting the “Silver Lurrrgie” for most popular presenter.
More highlights when you keep reading.
Hamish Blake is the man of the moment after winning the 2012 Gold Logie last night, which makes him the most popular personality on Australian TV. We’ve been fans of Hamish’s for a long time — as we’re sure many of you have been, too — but there’s more to the comedian than just his hilarious antics with Andy Lee. We’re celebrating Hamish’s Logies success (Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year also won most popular light entertainment program) with some fun facts about him.
If you didn’t stay up until 12:15 a.m. this morning, you may have missed One Direction’s second Logies performance. The UK boy band kicked off proceedings with a red carpet performance of “What Makes You Beautiful,” and popped up again during the show to present the most popular new female talent award to Winners and Losers’ Melissa Bergland. (When Liam Payne said they didn’t know anyone in Australia, Harry Styles cheekily said, “We thought, what better way for us to meet people we would get on with than by presenting the most popular female talent award.”) Liam, Harry, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson also closed the show with an energetic performance of “One Thing,” but the delayed telecast meant people watching at home only saw it after midnight. One of the highlights was seeing lots of Aussie stars on their feet, singing and dancing to the boys, whether it was for real or for fun. Watch the video to see people like Josh Thomas, Amanda Keller, Lisa Wilkinson and heaps of Home and Away stars bopping to One Direction.
You've voted on all the dresses from last night's Logie Awards, but now it's time to zone in on all the details. Rose gold, classic diamonds and high-octane colour reigned supreme, while belts in every shape and form were a key feature in keeping looks streamlined and modern. Step inside our gallery to take a closer look at why less is definitely more when it comes to Logies fashion done right.
Move over guyliner and Bro-tox, MAN-icures are what's hot in grooming right now. A slew of male stars, from Johnny Depp to Simon Pegg, have been seen sporting nail polish and Seal is joining them. The Voice mentor is actually turning out to be a repeat offender, trading in the sunshine yellow that he wore when he jetted into Australia for a gold foil at last night's Logies. The "Kiss From a Rose" singer gave everyone a close up of his metallic mani when he was seen greeting Delta Goodrem, his co-star on The Voice, with a kiss. But is it just us or should Seal have stepped aside and let Hamish go for gold?! What do you think of men getting manicures?
Hamish Blake may have taken home gold at last night's Logie Awards, but that didn't stop the other attendees from celebrating the 54th annual awards show with a little candid photo action. We've already zoomed in on all the red carpet frocks, but now feast your eyes on what went on behind the scenes, from unexpected smooches to post-celebration beers, there's nothing like a no holds barred look into Australian TV's night of nights!
Hamish Blake is the winner of the 2012 Gold Logie! The comedian and star of Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year, who told us he thought his chances of winning were extremely low, beat last year’s winner Karl Stefanovic, Carrie Bickmore, Adam Hills, Asher Keddie and Esther Anderson to be crowned this year’s most popular personality on TV. (An error saw the Herald Sun posting about Hamish’s win before the telecast had aired.) During his acceptance speech he thanked the other nominees, his fiancée Zoë Foster (he called her his “best friend” and “rock”), the people he works with, and of course, partner-in-crime Andy Lee, who he said he loves more “off-screen.” Hamish said he was humbled by the win and praised the Australian TV industry, saying it was filled with “good people.” He finished off his speech by saying his “first act as president” was to introduce his “man slaves” One Direction, who performed their hit “One Thing” to close the 2012 Logies show.
