‘It’s good, but with a week’s notice and doing it in stage 4 restrictions, it’s been a logistical nightmare,’ he told the publication. 

‘It’s very different to previous years, but I think they’re all going to look amazing.’ 

The Melbourne-based stylist will be dressing, Geelong star wives Emma Hawkins and Britt Selwood along with Collingwood star partner Mikayla Crisp.

And despite, the lack of red carpet this year, he admits that the women are looking forward to dressing up. 

‘No one has been able to dress up so this is going to be the first proper event to wear a gown. Everyone is craving something other than tracksuits,’ he added. 

However, fans shouldn’t expect the lavish gowns of previous years as the dress code is lounge suit.
