The who’s who of the Aussie music world — and outside of it, for that matter — glammed up for the industry’s night of nights, the ARIA Awards, on Wednesday evening.

And it appears that several stars all got the dress code memo for white-hot looks. Host of the event, Delta Goodrem, turned heads in a deconstructed white suit that featured a plunging neckline and exposed shoulders.

When the “Innocent Eyes” singer turned to congratulate the band Tame Impala for their Album of the Year win via video link, viewers at home were treated to a rear view of her outfit, which was almost entire backless.

Earlier in the night, which was broadcast on Channel Nine, the 36-year-old slipped into a sparkling silver column dress that was split right up to her thigh.

A simple necklace and sleek silver heels completed her dazzling red carpet ensemble.

Sophie Monk in Daniel Avakian

Delta wasn’t the glamazon to walk the ARIAs pared-back red carpet. Sophie Monk brought the heat in a white one-shouldered mini-dress by Daniel Avakian that made her pins look even longer.

Over on her Instagram, the Love Island host revealed her frock’s hidden secret: it glows in the dark! Thanks to its fancy triacetate fabric, the dress lights up with neon green stripes under UV or black lights.

Tegan Martin in Sant Elia

Tegan Martin also went with white, for the top part of her outfit at least. The 28-year-old threw caution to the wind in a bustier jumpsuit by Sant Elia which featured a unique fringing design and a perilously low neckline.

Though the risk of a wardrobe malfunction appeared to be high, the former Miss Universe Australia posed up a storm with aplomb.

Christian Wilkins, Richard Wilkins and Nicola Dale

Father-son duo Richard and Christian Wilkins were like chalk and cheese on the red carpet, with the junior Wilkins sporting a vintage band t-shirt and a pair of flamboyant animal print pants.

Wilkins senior, however, kept it simple and classic in all-black, while his new girlfriend, Nicola Dale, teamed with Christian’s theme in a leopard print midi dress.
