And while there was glitter, sequins, feathers and tulle galore, Jesinta Franklin won the night in a simple and sleek white gown by Dion Lee.
Franklin, there with her Sydney Swans star husband Buddy Franklin, who was wearing Ermenegildo Zegna, was a last-minute addition to the red carpet line-up, and managed to pull this look together in just two days.
“My darling Dion. 2 days notice and you manage this. Thank you to you and your team 🙏🏽 What whirlwind, thank you team,” Jesinta wrote on Instagram.
“It’s about Buddy and celebrating his year so I am keeping it nice and simple,” Jesinta told the Daily Telegraph of her look.
Jesinta accessoried the look with simple accessories, with diamond earrings by Cerrone Jewellers, black Stuart Weitzman ankle-strap heels and her platinum blonde hair parted to one side.
