The WAGS were out in glamorous force last night, with the frocks and beauty stealing (some) of the show on NRL’s Night of Night’s.

Here, some of the fashionable highlights from the Red Carpet.

Mel McLaughlin

 Footy’s first lady, Channel 7 Reporter, Mel McLaughlin, embraced two trends of the season; khaki and chokers, in a silky gown with thigh high split and uber bouncy blow wave.


Tegan Martin

A knockout in plunging pastel pink gown, with dramatic tasselled sleeves, the bombshell was wearing Jason Grech and Oscar de la Renta, and styled by our favourite Donny Galella.


Elyse Knowles

The Insta-model of the moment was flawless in a dusty, one-shoulder gown by Cappellazzo Couture, with sheer splices to spice things up. Hair was slick and centred with va-va-voom makeup by Normie.


Terry Biviano

The long-time WAG was sartorially kicking goals, in an on-trend khaki dress with power shoulders and plunging neckline and statement earrings by local doyenne Christie Nicolaides. Hair and makeup was sexy and slicked, however the overbearing tan proved to be a little distracting from the winning ensemble.


Tara Rushton

The girlfriend of Melbourne Storm halfback Cooper Cronk and Fox Sports presenter, wore an intricate white mesh gown offset with a moody lip and straight locks.


Phoebe Burgess

One half of NRL’s power couple, the pregnant (can you believe it?) Phoebe shone in black Alex Perry frock, which exposed a small bump through sheer panelling.


Kara Ryan

The wife of former Sharks star Beau Ryan, was a class act in an interesting black gown, again featuring the detail of the night – sheer panelling. Her high ponytail and gleaming beauty was the perfect addition.
