Red Carpet

Nadia Bartel stuns in breathtaking gown at the Brownlow Awards, just weeks after split with husband

Jimmy who?

By Rebecca Sullivan
Nadia Bartel has just been through some of the toughest months of her life, following her high-profile split from husband Jimmy Bartel, but today the stunning 34-year-old put all of that aside and stepped out in a breathtaking gown at the 2019 Brownlow Awards.
The fashion influencer is hosting Channel Seven's live fashion broadcast tonight, on the same red carpet she has attended as a guest with the father of her two children, Henley, 10 months, and Aston, three, for several years now.
Jimmy is a Brownlow Medal winner himself - he was awarded the prestigious title in 2007. It's unclear if he will also be in attendance tonight, but former winners automatically receive an invitation to the event.
While the live TV coverage doesn't kick off for a few hours, as a red carpet host Nadia made sure she was all ready to go in preparation for the event this evening at Crown Casino in Melbourne.
The gorgeous mother-of-two took to Instagram to share a few photos of her stunning gown before hitting the red carpet herself - a custom creation from Australian fashion label J'Aton Couture.
The incredible ice blue strapless dress features corset boning and delicate beading, with a sexy thigh-high split down the side.
Nadia paired her look with classic nude pumps, Victoria's Secret waves and diamond jewels.
"When @jatoncouture creates magic ✨@channel7 @chantellebaker @marieuva @sprayaus bling by @cerronejewellers staying at @crownhotels," Nadia wrote on Instagram.

Speaking to the Herald Sun this week, Nadia revealed her split from Jimmy would not impact her career.
"I'm not going to stop working, I'm passionate about what I do," she said.
"It's such a big event in Melbourne across sport and fashion," she said of the Brownlow red carpet, "and I'm looking forward to getting back into it."
Last night, Nadia shared a sexy photo of herself on Instagram, which appeared to be taken during fittings with J'Aton.
She showed off her incredible figure in the mini gold dress with cutouts slashed over her chest.

Last month, the couple confirmed their split after rumours swirled for weeks that former Geelong star Jimmy had cheated on his wife with Melbourne socialite Lauren Brand.
It's believed Nadia found out about the new relationship via text message.
Just over a month ago, Nadia and Jimmy unfollowed each other on Instagram and have both been spotted out and about without their wedding rings.
"It's been a very difficult month for me and the boys," Nadia told The Herald Sun at the time.
"Although I'm heartbroken, I don't want to comment specifically on what's been reported about Jim's trip to the UK as I don't think that is in anyone's interests.
"My single focus now is to continue to protect, care and provide for my two beautiful boys as this is a personal matter. I am so thankful for my very supportive family and friends."

Jimmy also addressed the split last month and has not denied the cheating allegations.
"It's not great, but I am probably not going to provide any commentary on it," he told Melbourne radio station 3AW.
"I know I am in the public eye and people are interested, but it is a private matter and I ask for a bit of respect because obviously Nadia and the boys (are) involved.
"I still enjoy coming to work and I love working with everybody in football. I love the game so I can't see why I wouldn't keep showing up for work."
