The small screen starlet has opted for a sophisticated beauty look for television's night of nights, keeping her blonde locks pulled back in a stylish up-do with a bold side swept fringe to add some texture. The actress has proved to be quite a fan of the local fashion house established by Jacob Luppino and Anthony Pittorino, having strutted the Logies red carpet in 2012 in a neon and lace J'Aton design. Joining Asher on the red carpet was her artist husband Vincent Fantauzzo, looking very sharp in a crisp black suit. Write caption here

Here comes the bride: Asher Keddie and her new husband Vincent Fantauzzo arriving at the Logie Awards on Sunday night This is the first time that the 39-year-old actress has stepped out after tying the knot with the Melbourne based artist in a romantic secret ceremony on Turtle Island, Fiji on April 9. And the actress looked happier than ever, radiant on the red carpet with a newlywed glow. The small screen darling has double the reason to celebrate, being nominated for the coveted Gold Logie award for her performance as Nina Proudman on Channel Ten drama Offspring. Lady in black: The fitted frock featured embroidered detail throughout and a satin finish across the waist The Gold Logie is handed to the person considered to be the most popular personality on Australian TV, and Asher managed to pick up the top gong last year. 'I'm absolutely thrilled and feel so grateful and it is such a pleasure to be working on such wonderful Australian drama,' Asher said last year after taking out the big award.

The stunner has already taken out the award for the Most Popular actress this year - voted for by the public and the Most Oustanding Actor category, which is decided by the industry.

Vincent also accompanied Asher to last year's prestigious event, where she graced the red carpet in a sleek black Dion Lee gown.

Chris Rock's 33-year-old girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke flashed a diamond ring on her wedding finger on Saturday evening while at the Apollo in the Hamptons 2016 party in New York City. The timing is interesting as the next day the comedian finalized his divorce from wife of 20 years, Malaak Compton-Rock. The ring - a yellow gold double band with a small diamond - could be an engagement ring. As PageSix revealed on Thursday, a friend shared a clear image of the ring and added it was time to celebrate 'new beginnings,' strongly suggesting the standup could be on his way to another marriage. Bling it on! Chris Rock's girlfriend Megalyn Echikunwoke flashed diamond ring on wedding finger on Sunday the night before his divorce was finalized from wife of 10 years Malaak 'Last night we celebrated new beginnings . . . #lovewins,' the unidentified friend wrote in the caption. The site pointed out Echikunwoke seemed to take a dig at Malaak when she replied 'Bye, Felicia,' which is a catchphrase that pretty much translates to 'don't let the door hit you on the way out,' only not as polite. A friend added crying-laughter emojis.perruques cheveux naturels They look good together: The standup and Echikunwoke at the Governor's Ball at the 88th Academy Awards back in February; she does not appear to have the ring on here The post was then taken down. The beauty glowed as she held onto Rock, who was also in great spirits. She had on a lovely floral-print dress with spaghetti straps and her hair was worn down over her bare shoulders.

A source told PageSix, 'she always wears that ring,' which appears to be true as she has had it on several times in the past six months. They have been dating for one year and she lives at his New Jersey home. The last one: Rock and Malaak back in 2014; they have two daughters together and have raised an adopted daughter as well His rep then said Chris was '100 percent' not engaged. On Monday Chris and Malaak both appeared in a New Jersey courtroom to finalise the split, reported TMZ. The 51-year-old comic actor and his wife - who have been separated since 2014 -have two daughters Lola Simone, 14 and  Zahra Savanna, 12. Chris and Malaak Compton-Rock also appear to have been raising eight-year-old Ntombi, who first came to live with them from South Africa when she was six months old, according to the website, although details are unclear. In divorce papers, Malaak listed Ntombi-futhi Samantha as a dependent along with the Rocks’ two biological daughters. The kids: Chris with Malaak and children Lola, Zahra Savanna and Ntombi at the Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted premiere in NYC in 2012 She stated that in addition to their two children, there is a child 'who has resided with the parties since before her first birthday.' But rather mysteriously, a spokesman for Chris told TMZ he does not have an adopted child. TMZ previously reported that back in 2008, the family took in Ntombi who remained in their house and was subsequently enrolled in a local school. She mingles with the big guns: Chris and Megalyn with Harvey Weinstein at the Apollo partyperruques cheveux The site added that the girl's parents were thought to be unemployed and from South Africa, although it is not known why she was living with the Rock family. They add that when Chris and Malaak began divorce proceedings, Chris maintained contact with his two biological daughters. However their divorce case is sealed so it is not known what settlement was reached. Meanwhile, Chris began dating actress Megalyn earlier this year. Megalyn, who has had recurring roles in 24, ER, CSI Miami, The 4400, 90210 and Damien, was most recently featured as the animal-powered Vixen in the TV series Arrow.
