Socialite Christian Wilkins never misses a red carpet or a swanky party.

‘Telling my family I’m going to get really drunk on Xmas and be the “lit star” for the tree has not gone down as well as expected,’ he tweeted.
A lover of the limelight, Christian has stepped out of Richard’s shadow in recent years thanks to his growing catalogue of statement-making red carpet appearances.
Christian, who came out as gay in 2018, never shies away from bold colours, textures and patterns, pushing the envelope in terms of both style and gender stereotypes.

‘People used to call me a girl all the time because I was a gay guy who was very flamboyant, and did dance and singing,’ he said on his podcast, Radical Fashionism, last November.
‘People always used to call me a girl, and I always found that such a strange diss, because I feel like in order to be offended by something, what they’re calling you needs to be offensive.’
Christian has been busy promoting his new series, Eden, on on-demand streaming service Stan.

For his ‘very Nordic character’, the socialite, who has carved out a name for himself as a model and stylist, dyed his locks and eyebrows white.
‘It is my first proper acting role so to really commit to an aesthetic for it has been so much fun,’ he told Sydney Confidential recently.
‘Acting has always been my numero uno so to be able to live my dream to do it feels so validating.’
