Aje Rantango Dress / Samantha Wills Earrings / Charlotte Olypmia Boots / Vintage Clutch

So here is what I wore to the Cosmopolitan FFF Awards last week. It’s crazy to think how long I had to prepare for this (let’s say about 6 weeks) yet I still manage to leave all the preparation extremely last minute. Luckily the beautiful girls at Desordre helped me out and went above and beyond to make sure I found the perfect dress for this special event. This dress is by Aje (you can pre-order it at Desordre here) and was absolutely perfect with its cut out back, cropped front and long flowing fishtail train, not to mention it was made completely out of rose gold sequins. If I was ever going to wear a full sequined dress it would be to something like this! I kept the rest of my outfit really simple with natural make up, nails and minimal accessories. I had to have a bit of vintage in there too so I took along my faux crocodile skin clutch which I accidentally left in the taxi on the way home. And I was sober! I’d had it for years so I hope our male taxi driver appreciates it as much as I did.Regardless of my missing clutch it was a beautiful night on the water at Rose Bay, where we enjoyed an intimate dinner of 125 guests and live performances from Jessica Mauboy and Stan Walker. Wish I took some photos but I got caught up in the experience again.I also wanted to thank everyone who took the time to vote for me. Unfortunately Sara and I missed out this year but it was an honor to make it to the finals and to be there in a room full of fun, fearless females that I have personally admired for so many years so thank you for getting me there. A few more thank yous go out to Aje, Shannon and Lucinda at Desordre, Brad Ngata, Maxted Thomas PR, Sophie at Ellery, Yeojin Bae and of course Zanita, who was nice enough to take time out of her busy schedule to come take a few photos of us. You all helped make this night extremely special to me and one I’ll remember for years to come. Now It’s back to reality!
