Best and worst-dressed at the ARIAs
The ARIA Awards are upon us for another year, and what could possibly dampen the spirits of Australian music's brightest stars? Erm, how about the worst November Sydney storms in three decades?
Thankfully (or disappointingly, depending on your desire to watch celebs trudge along a wet red carpet like drowned rats) the once-in-a-generation torrential downpours have eased since this morning, and stars are starting to arrive on the red carpet at Sydney's The Star ahead of tonight's ceremony.
Homegrown country star Keith Urban's set to host the event, and he's bringing some serious star power to proceedings in the form of his wife, Nicole Kidman.
We'll see performances from the likes of homegrown boy band 5 Seconds Of Summer, visiting pop star Rita Ora and Hall of Fame inductee Kasey Chambers.
Also set to perform: Amy Shark, who tops the leaderboard with an incredible nine nominations. Expect her to go home with at least a few trophies tonight.
In the meantime, let's check out the red carpet:
Singer Montaigne turned up 2 years ago with "PEOPLE OVER PROFIT" written on her chest - this year it's "STOP ADANI" on her cheeks.
"For the rest of my life I will probably eject at least three loads out of my butt every week," Montaigne said during her bizarre Best Breakthrough Artist speech two ARIAs ago. I'm still thinking about it.
Is Samantha Jade's hair deliberately wet-look or did she just get caught in the rain? Answers on the back of a postcard please.
Sarah Ellen's smizing so hard she's giving me a migraine:
You might think Barry Southgate's suit blending in with the media wall is an unfortunate sartorial faux-pas, but jokes on you because he's perfectly camouflaged against any lurking apex predators:
Vera Blue's tux situation is very much business on top, party on the bottom:
Havana Brown knows how to work a red carpet:
Alex the Astronaut (note: not an actual astronaut) is a vision in velvet:
I can never remember whether Jess and Matt Price are a married couple or siblings. Or both.
Son of Richard, Christian (Prince) Wilkins and his partner Andrew Kelly. No, he doesn't have some sort of skin virus, those are actually Hello Kitty tatts all over his arms and face:
That skirt... suddenly I'm craving a Licorice Allsort:
The Loop host (and rumoured new girlfriend of Dr Chris Brown) went for disco glam:
Dj Helena Ellis is serving a real J-Lo turn of the century vibe:
You might be asking why Beau Ryan's at the ARIAs, which means you forgot he once released a single with Justice Crew. I wish I'd forgotten.
