Mummy blogger Sophie Cachia rocks super sheer dress at Grand Prix

·2-min read

Melbourne is welcoming the Formula One Grand Prix back this week after it was cancelled last year due to the pandemic.

Among the reality TV stars, influencers and who’s who of the sporting world descending on the city in honour of the occasion, is Australian Survivor star and mummy blogger Sophie Cachia, who turned heads at the glitzy Glamour on the Grid Grand Prix party on Wednesday night.

The 31-year-old arrived in a custom gown of her own design realised by Melbourne designer Samantha Lentini.

The eye-popping number was almost completely sheer, made out of a ruched, black mesh that clung to her figure.

It featured a strapless neckline and long sleeves that were connected to the body of the dress with black feathers.


Designer Samantha managed to pull together the frock in just three days after receiving a request from Sophie.

In an Instagram Story, Sophie said, “About five days ago I texted @bysamanthalentini with this idea. She brought it to life within three days!! Love working with you!!”

Sophie paired the one of a kind dress with sparkly slingback heels and matching purse.

Also bringing some glitter to the glamorous party were fellow reality TV stars, Brooke Blurton from The Bachelorette, Love Island’s Tayla Damir and Big Brother’s Tully Smyth.

Brooke wore a boxy, midnight blue mini dress covered in tassels by Gold Couture Australia, while Tayla and Tully both opted for gold outfits.

Another pair who turned heads were model Tegan Woodford and her Supercar star fiance James Courtney who were matching in black suits.

While Tegan brought a whole lot of sex appeal by wearing nothing underneath her blazer, James opted for the more traditional shirt and tie combo under his.
