Lisa Wilkinson and Julie Bishop were among a host of Australian celebrities and TV personalities to grace the red carpet on Saturday for the premiere of Hamilton, playing at the Sydney Lyric Theatre.

The Sunday Project host turned on the glamour in a dramatic, draped dress in a burnt orange tone, as she attended the Tony Award winning musical.

Former foreign minister Julie Bishop also stunned in a sequinned mini dress, as she attended the event alongside partner David Panton.


The 64-year-old turned heads in the bright orange frock that showed off her toned legs, clearly enjoying her time in the spotlight since leaving politics.

Just last week Julie announced a new television gig with comedian Joel Creasey. She is set to appear alongside a number of other celebrities on Channel 10 clip show What The Hell Just Happened? that will feature stars reacting to viral videos and news events from the past 12 months. The show is set to premiere on April 5.

Former Studio 10 host Kerri-Anne Kennerley showed off her ageless figure in a fitted blue, floor length gown.

She appears to have recovered well, after suffering a nasty fall while performing in her own musical at Sydney’s Lyric Theatre earlier this year.

The 67-year-old was hospitalised with a broken collarbone and a “chip to a bone in her ankle” in January, after she fell 4.5m from a trapeze during a scene in Pippin.

Delta Goodrem and Keith Urban were two of the biggest names in music to attend.

Delta beamed as she posed in a racy lace bustier and white blazer. The 36-year-old also wore black pants and heels.

Keith Urban, 53, went to the event solo, leaving wife Nicole Kidman at home with the children.

Jessica Rowe absolutely stunned in a mini dress with a long black sheer panel and bright pink heels.

The 50-year-old was beaming just days after a frightening incident saw her car burst into flames during the school run in Sydney.

The former Studio 10 star thanked a quick-thinking bus driver for alerting her to her burning car on Thursday afternoon outside Kambala Girls School in Sydney's Rose Bay.

Original US producer for Hamilton Jeffrey Seller was in Sydney for the premiere and praised the fact the show was able to go ahead as Australia continues to keep the coronavirus pandemic under control.

“I am lucky to be in Sydney to witness this beautiful production come alive – the only one currently playing in the world right now. This Australian cast really moves me – This production has so much life and soul," he said.

"And there is something truly special about being able to experience this live, together, in the theatre.”

NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian was also in attendance, expressing her excitement at being able to have the musical run in Sydney.

“I’m so excited for Sydney and Australia, this is an amazing night,” she told reporters.

Gladys almost stole the show looking very chic in a black ruffled top and burgundy velvet skirt teamed with a black Gucci bag.

Her hair was styled with Hollywood waves and she completed her red carpet look with bow-detail black heels.
