Australian TV's night of nights is fast approaching and in celebration we're taking a look back at the most glamorous beauty moments of 2012. Take a closer look at the hair and makeup styles of Jennifer Hawkins, Megan Gale, Natalie Bassingthwaighte, Delta Goodrem, Asher Keddie, Lisa Wilkinson and many, many more and tell us who sported your favourite red carpet look of the night.
If you didn’t stay up until 12:15 a.m. this morning, you may have missed One Direction’s second Logies performance. The UK boy band kicked off proceedings with a red carpet performance of “What Makes You Beautiful,” and popped up again during the show to present the most popular new female talent award to Winners and Losers’ Melissa Bergland. (When Liam Payne said they didn’t know anyone in Australia, Harry Styles cheekily said, “We thought, what better way for us to meet people we would get on with than by presenting the most popular female talent award.”) Liam, Harry, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson also closed the show with an energetic performance of “One Thing,” but the delayed telecast meant people watching at home only saw it after midnight. One of the highlights was seeing lots of Aussie stars on their feet, singing and dancing to the boys, whether it was for real or for fun. Watch the video to see people like Josh Thomas, Amanda Keller, Lisa Wilkinson and heaps of Home and Away stars bopping to One Direction.
Move over guyliner and Bro-tox, MAN-icures are what's hot in grooming right now. A slew of male stars, from Johnny Depp to Simon Pegg, have been seen sporting nail polish and Seal is joining them. The Voice mentor is actually turning out to be a repeat offender, trading in the sunshine yellow that he wore when he jetted into Australia for a gold foil at last night's Logies. The "Kiss From a Rose" singer gave everyone a close up of his metallic mani when he was seen greeting Delta Goodrem, his co-star on The Voice, with a kiss. But is it just us or should Seal have stepped aside and let Hamish go for gold?! What do you think of men getting manicures?
Hamish Blake is the winner of the 2012 Gold Logie! The comedian and star of Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year, who told us he thought his chances of winning were extremely low, beat last year’s winner Karl Stefanovic, Carrie Bickmore, Adam Hills, Asher Keddie and Esther Anderson to be crowned this year’s most popular personality on TV. (An error saw the Herald Sun posting about Hamish’s win before the telecast had aired.) During his acceptance speech he thanked the other nominees, his fiancée Zoë Foster (he called her his “best friend” and “rock”), the people he works with, and of course, partner-in-crime Andy Lee, who he said he loves more “off-screen.” Hamish said he was humbled by the win and praised the Australian TV industry, saying it was filled with “good people.” He finished off his speech by saying his “first act as president” was to introduce his “man slaves” One Direction, who performed their hit “One Thing” to close the 2012 Logies show.
The 2012 Logies ceremony has kicked off and lots of the awards have already been handed out. We’re going to update this list of winners as the night goes on so be sure to check back!

Channel Nine’s Logies coverage kicked off with a performance from One Direction tonight. The super popular British/Irish boy band sang their hit single “What Makes You Beautiful” in front of a very excited crowd — some fans had waited for hours to see the band perform. Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik are set to perform again in front of the Aussie TV stars inside the Crown Palladium in Melbourne. For now, watch them sing “What Makes You Beautiful” — and try not to get blinded by all the flashing lights!
Lots of our favourite Aussie TV stars stepped out onto the Logies red carpet tonight in stunning designer dresses and suits. The Crown Palladium in Melbourne was filled with glamorous people as they gathered to celebrate Australian TV’s night of nights. Who stood out as they made their arrival? Asher Keddie, who’s already a Logie winner, wowed in neon and lace J’Aton, while Jennifer Hawkins turned heads in her turquoise Toni Maticevski number with thigh-high split. The men also made an impression in their tuxes, though special mention goes to One Direction, who showed up perfectly styled in matching blue hues.

Jesinta Campbell is proving to be quite the chameleon. Instead of always rocking a signature beauty look she's been mixing things up recently going form poker straight strands one minute to retro styles the next. For tonight's Logie Awards Miss Universe Australia 2010 opted for a looped side ponytail that blurred the lines between vintage and modern styles. She made her makeup all about the eyes, joining the many smoky-eyed looks we've seen tonight and finished things off with a red mani, which surprisingly complemented her gown perfectly. Do you like JC's look?

Esther Anderson looked gorgeous at the Logies this evening. She walked the red carpet in a white Alex Perry gown. It’s a big night for the former Home and Away actress, who is nominated for the Gold Logie and most popular actress. Her character, Charlie Buckton, may have been killed off earlier this year but there’s still a lot of love for the actress, who brought her mum to the event. What do you think of Esther’s look?
