Allan Border Medal 2018
As January rolls around each year our team starts to prepare for the annual Allan Border Medal. Celebrating the best of Australian cricket. The Allan Border medal is also an opportunity for the partners and wives of our cricket stars to grace the ‘blue carpet’ wearing an collection of talented Melbourne based designer.
This year the ONE DAY team dressed three beautiful ladies for the event.
Rianna Ponting, wife of Ricky Ponting, the two time World Cup winning captain for Australia, Anna Weatherlake, wife to Peter Siddle, and Sarah Ray girlfriend of Peter Handscomb.
This was a special year for the Ponting family as Ricky was inducted into the Cricket Hall of Fame. Stepping out onto the red carpet with their three beautiful children, Rianna wore a custom made blush pearlised gown.
The inspiration behind this gown was definitely the fabric. This structured, pearlised fabric needed to be used on a structured and elegant design. Finished with yellow diamonds and hair by Mikal Dun and make up by Danielle Gardiner.
A regular to a ONE DAY design is Anna Weatherlake. As a former ONE DAY bride and regularly wearing our gowns to red carpet events, this year Anna went for a bold look.
Wearing our new CHOSEN Murphy skirt in black with a custom bodysuit, this was Anna’s favourite red carpet look yet. We wanted to have a bit of fun whilst still making a statement and this skirt and bodysuit did the trick.
Lastly was the beautiful Sarah Ray. Wearing our York gown, Sarah’s look was fun and naturally beautiful. Sarah finished her look with a natural wave and dark eye, with the CHOSEN ‘Get Down’ earrings and hair and make up by Mae Taylor.
A big congratulations to all of the winners on the night!
