FROM housewives to Big Ted, the 58th annual Logie Awards had something for everyone.

Television royalty rocked the red carpet wearing international and local designers including Vera Wang and Paolo Sebastian.

Perth was well represented with reality stars from The Block and The Bachelor in full force.

Rove McManus and wife Tasma Walton, Carrie Bickmore, Julia Morris, Waleed Aly and Dannii Minogue were crowd favourites.

McManus was happy to talk about anything but his beloved Fremantle Football Club, while Real Housewife Chyka Keebaugh was the talk of the night after announcing her departure from the hit television reality show.

Expectant mum-to-be Rebecca Judd shone beautifully in powder blue princess gown by J’aton, while The Bachelor‘s Snezana Markoski wore a stunning red gown by Pallas Couture.

Gold Logie nominee Aly said while he was thrilled to be nominated, he would be happy to see Bickmore take out back-to-back honours, and was excited to just to be there.

Deborah Mailman, who returned to filming the new season of Offspring three weeks ago, said all Gold Logie nominees were well deserved but backed Lee Lin Chin and Aly to take out the honours.

Not only did Mailman walk away from this year’s ceremony with the Most Outstanding Actress Logie for Redfern Now, but she was on the money with Aly winning the biggest award of the night.
