ARIA Awards 2018: The worst and weirdest outfits

Forget the music, it's the wild clothes that have caught our attention.

By Alex Lilly

When it comes to fashion, the guests at this year's ARIA Awards certainly brought it. But when it comes to some of the guests, we're wondering if they took a look in the mirror before they left the house.

So far we've seen frilly pink ensembles and matching suits and while we love a statement outfit as much as the next person, some of these have left us speechless. And not in the good way!

Take a look at some of the most daring looks.

Pretty(?) in pink

It's like the Australian version of Legally Blonde down at the ARIA Awards 2018 red carpet as it seems pink is the colour of the day.

Christian Wilkins, the son of Today's Richard Wilkins and his partner Andrew Kelly were the ultimate colour coordinated team while musician George Maple was literally covered in pink silk with most of her face hidden.

Montaigne entered dressed in voluminous pink feathers, but it's her political statement of "STOP ADANI" on her cheeks that has people talking. It's not the first time she's showed her activism, according to news.com.au, two years ago the musician had "PEOPLE OVER PROFIT" written on her chest.

Christian Wilkins and Andrew Kelly worked the pink from head to toe. Literally.

Matchy matchy

The colour-coordination wasn't just limited to pink.

Children's band Lah Lah came dressed for the occasion in red, black and white stripes, so at least if one gets lost they'll be able to find them. Dance duo Peking Duk also got the red memo and turned up in matching suits.

Bold prints

When you're making an entrance on the red carpet, you want all eyes to be on you (of course). One top way to get everyone's attention is through some eye-catching patterns.

Whether you opt for a floral suit like Barry Southgate or a bold and bright leopard print dress a la Sylvia Jeffreys, it will make heads turn.

In fact, Sylvia's dress wasn't the only leopard print we saw, Four-time ARIA award winner Joseph Tawadros managed to find a pair of shoes in the same pattern!

Barry Southgate may be jumping for joy, but we're not so sure.

And we're officially lost for words

We thought we'd seen everything and then Imogen Anthony rocked up.

The model and girlfriend of radio shock jock Kyle Sandilands wore what appeared to be a series of ribbons, but when you look closer, there's actually a political message in there.

Emblazoned on the ribbons were phrases including, 'Not for sale,' 'Promiscuous', 'B-tch,' 'Hysterical' and 'Wh-re' among others.
