All the best fashion from the Brownlow 2018 red carpet

What football final?

By Susannah Guthrie

Another AFL football season has been and gone without many of us attending and/or watching a single match. Of course, that could be just us, so to all our football-focused readers (and there are a few of you), we see you. To the rest of you, we relate to you.

Regardless of whether or not you watch the damn sport, you'll agree the real event is the Brownlow Medal red carpet, where we get to see all the powerhouse ladies behind the players step out in their finery and get some well-deserved attention for all those weekends they sacrificed to sit in a cold stadium and watch their husbands run around like madmen.
