2020 ARIAs: The best and worst dresses Australian celebrities at Sydney’s Star Casino awards show

News Today || Headlines Today

Australian music royalty in fluorescent tutus and dresses embellished with insects have blazed a trail of fashion failure at the 2020 ARIA Awards – but a select few hit all the right notes.

Celebrities did their best to pose up a storm for a ceremony like no other broadcast live from Sydney’s Star Casino, with no red carpet or physical audience as COVID-19 restrictions continue to disrupt the normal structure of major events.

But vocal sensations fell flat, with Jessica Mauboy getting it wrong in a bizarre leopard print frock with drooping butterflies hanging from every inch, and Amy Shark looking edgy but inappropriate for the biggest night in the Australian music calendar in a velvet mini-dress and chunky biker boots.

Singer songwriter Montaigne – born Jessica Alyssa Cerro – lived up to her quirky sartorial reputation but almost took eyes out in hot pink opera gloves and a canary yellow two-piece with tiered tulle frills, reminiscent of a wedding cake.

What does ARIA stand for?

The Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (commonly known as the ARIA Music Awards or ARIA Awards) is an annual awards nights celebrating the Australian music industry, hosted by the Australian Recording Industry Association.

Even catwalk queens got it wrong at a soiree where guests can afford to experiment with fanciful fabrics and hair-raising hemlines, with Miss Universe Australia Tegan Martin suffering a rare wardrobe malfunction in a stunning strapless jumpsuit that struggled to contain her assets.

It was a pity for the 28-year-old model whose ensemble was picture perfect besides the tailoring of the bodice.

Comedian Joel Creasey seemed to have drawn inspiration from Joe Exotic, the star of Netflix smash hit Tiger King, in an emerald green suit slashed with black tiger stripes and glittering charcoal cowboy boots.

Elsewhere jazz singer Kate Ceberano opted for enormous platform heels and a plain black dress that shrouded her figure in a tent of fabric – but her gently waved hair and warm, smokey eye makeup were a winner.

Up and coming artist Mia Rodriguez looked appropriate for her 18 years in a simple skirt and top combination – but the chunky boots, garish diamond necklace and matching Chanel handbag and earrings were slight overkill.

But not everyone committed such flagrant sartorial sins.
