Logie Awards 2022 red carpet: Christian Wilkins wears sheer backless dress

Christian Wilkins upstages everyone at the 2022 Logie Awards as he arrives on the red carpet looking sensational in a sheer backless dress

He’s not exactly known for his subtlety when it comes to style.

And Christian Wilkins put his best fashion foot forward on Sunday as he arrived for the Logie Awards at The Star casino on the Gold Coast.

The socialite and reality star, 26, ditched the traditional tuxedo in favour of a proudly feminine look by donning a sheer backless dress on the red carpet.

The dress’ design drew attention to Christian’s muscular back and lean shoulders.

He styled his long blond hair loosely, opted for a pair of quirky hoof-style heels, and accessorised with a dramatic necklace that draped down his back.

Christian made sure the cameras caught him at every angle as he showcased his modelesque features, including his impressively chiselled jawline.

He was joined at the Logies by his famous father Richard Wilkins, the long-serving entertainment editor for the Nine Network. 

The Logies are back for the first time since 2019, with seven TV personalities vying for the coveted Gold Logie, including comedian Tom Gleeson.

The Hard Quiz host famously won three years ago after launching a campaign ridiculing the award as well as his competition.

Gleeson has tried this strategy again in 2022, posting on Twitter that he would be embarrassed to win more than once.

“I’m not campaigning this year for the Gold Logie. Do not vote for me,” he said.

The ABC presenter is up against some big names from commercial television; Hamish Blake, Julia Morris, Karl Stefanovic, Melissa Leong, Ray Meagher and Sonia Kruger.

The awards are being held on the the Gold Coast on Sunday night after a two-year hiatus due to Covid-19.

While Gold Logie campaign antics are a feature again, there have been some changes since the last time the awards were staged.

The Silver Logie for most popular presenter will be renamed the Bert Newton Award in honour of the late presenter, who died in October.

Old Moonface, as he was affectionately known, hosted the Logies 19 times and won the coveted Gold Logie in 1979, 1981, 1982 and 1984.

A new Silver Logie will also be awarded for the most popular actor in an international program.

The night will also feature a tribute to the long-running soapie Neighbours, a week after the show filmed its final scenes.

First broadcast in 1985, it was cancelled in March after nearly 9000 episodes.

The Logies will be broadcast on Channel Nine with red carpet coverage from 7pm AEST and awards presented from 7.30pm.
