The Brownlow Medal 2020 ceremony usually takes place in Melbourne, but this year’s event was spread out across Australia.
The bulk of the players in the Queensland bubble were at an event at Carrara Stadium on the Gold Coast.
And there were events in Perth and Adelaide, as well as in Sydney and Melbourne.
Things may be all over the place due to coronavirus, but the footy stars and their partners still delivered looks — even though attendees were reportedly told they didn’t need to follow a strict black tie dress code this year.
Here’s who dressed up and who didn’t (spoiler alert: everyone did).
The Brisbane Lions’ Lachie Neale and partner Julie didn’t hold back, with the new first lady of footy donning a sheer floor-length gown and tousled waves.
And Hawthorn’s Jack Gunston rocked a suit and a face mask, captioning his Instagram outfit post: “Brownlow Medal Victorian Style.”
Meanwhile, Melbourne’s Christian Petracca and his partner Bella were #Brownlow ready in Brisbane.
The Brisbane Lions’ Charlie Cameron went for a suave dark velvet ensemble, with his partner Caitlin Seeto in an equally elegant black number.
West Coast Eagles player Luke Shuey and his partner Dani were dressed to the nines.
Shuey said he was disappointed not to be playing this weekend.
Melbourne’s Jack Viney and his wife Charlotte posed for pictures with their baby daughter Mila Grace.
And the Sydney Swans’ Luke Parker cut a dapper figure next to partner Kate Lawrence, who stood out in a red number.
Equally sharp were the Melbourne Demons’ Steven May and partner Briana.
The Western Bulldogs’ Marcus Bontempelli and Tom Libatore brought their fashion A game, both rocking up to the Gold Coast event in style.
Libatore’s suit even covered up his, “My god you’re greasy” tattoo.
