Looking breathtaking in a form-fitting strapless yellow corset and skirt, Hawkins neither opened or closed the show as rumoured, but instead casually appeared alongside models including Nicole Harrison, Caris Tiivel and Evelyn Leckie.
Hawkins told media before the show that she was excited to be back on the catwalk for RAFW, saying she didn't have to think twice about the offer.
"I attended shows last year and had such a great time, so when Myer and Kym Ellery asked me to walk I jumped at the chance," said Hawkins.
Based on David Hockney's contemporary artwork, Ellery's latest collection, The Second Marriage, placed heavily embellished skirts alongside printed dresses, with an exaggerated silhouette the focus of the show. Waists were nipped in, but shoulders accentuated and trousers flared.
As seen at many of the RAFW shows this week, Ellery's colour palette included a striking gold juxtaposed alongside muted peaches, corals and grey.
