Leila McKinnon almost suffers a wardrobe malfunction at the Logie Awards in a plunging gown

She’s known for her bold, daring and incredibly risque red carpet looks. 


And on Sunday, Leila McKinnon took another risk at the 2019 Logie Awards by wearing an over-the-top frock with plunging neckline and oversized puffy sleeves.  

With a super thigh-high split, reminiscent of Jessica Rabbit’s iconic frock, all eyes were on Leila – but almost for the wrong reasons.

The full-length gown, which featured a plunging neckline nearly revealed more than she bargained for. 

The dress featured a very low-cut V-neck neckline that flapped open, almost flashing the beauty’s bust and narrowly avoiding a wardrobe malfunction. 

Taking inspiration from the spring 2019 runway, which saw ridiculously puffy sleeves rule supreme, Leila cut a striking figure in a Constantina and Louise creation.    

Leila paired her look with a more conservative pair of black strappy Alexander McQueen heels and a stylish black and gold Bally clutch.

She opted for a sun-kissed makeup palette, consisting of copper and bronze tones, with a metallic eye shadow and chestnut lip stain.

She also wore her signature blonde tresses sleek and straight with a part in the middle. 

The 46-year-old also added a hint of sparkle to her daring ensemble by donning a pair of understated earrings and Chaumet ring. 

While Leila’s choice may have missed the mark – sartorially speaking, it’s not the first time the newsreader has been singled out for her unusual choice of frock.

Glowing for last year’s Logies, the then 45-year-old made sure all eyes were on her in a tinsel-inspired frock,

The Logies are set to air on Sunday, June 30 on Channel 9.
