“We’re going to focus on the fun and a little giggle on the red carpet instead of asking that question,” she added.

The move could be considered political correctness gone mad after Brownlow’s red carpet turned glamorous WAGs into huge stars.

For example, Rebecca Judd rose to fame in 2004 for her revealing red dress at the Brownlow Medal Count.

Sarita Holland also gained public attention when she donned a red leather dress in 2002, which resembled an AFL football.

Asking celebrities who they wear has long been a fixture in red carpet coverage around the world, with reporters often using the question to quickly get female celebrities into conversation.

Demand also ensures that the designers who donated their carefully crafted garments to celebrities for the event are duly recognized.

In recent years, however, the question has been viewed by some as “sexist” and “objectifying” to women.

This belief led to the #AskHerMore movement, which encouraged journalists to involve female stars in discussions about issues deeper than their red carpet outfits.

“This is a movement to say that we are more than just our dresses,” Reece Witherspoon said on Instagram of the #AskHerMore movement in 2015.
