Logies 2022: Maria Thattil makes a statement in ‘naked dress’

Former Miss Universe Maria Thattil stuns in a raunchy ‘naked’ dress at the Logie Awards – as she reveals the daring dress was inspired by her coming out as bisexual

Former Miss Universe Australia Maria Thattil certainly didn’t hold back in the wardrobe department during Sunday night’s Logie Awards.

The 29-year-old turned heads in a sheer dress that made her appear nearly naked as she posed a storm on the red carpet.

Rather than gossip, the model revealed she was wearing the dress to make a statement about her sexuality.

“It took vulnerability to stand in my naked truth when I got on national TV on my first show — so I wanted a look that represents that,” she explained on Instagram.

“This tailored dress is an ode to the power that lies in not hiding who you are,” she continued.

The nakedness of the dress represents freedom, and unfettered by attempts to protect the body, it represents strength in celebrating oneself. Logies – here we come.’

Maria’s custom “naked dress” featured thousands of crystal beads to mimic dripping water, much like the Thierry Mugler dress Kim Kardashian wore to the 2019 Met Gala.

Crafted with 3027 crystals to mimic water, custom nude mesh designed by Conilio to match my skin, and a corset molded to the shape of my body to accentuate my proportions. Why would you change yourself to fit the world?’ Mary wrote.

“The nudity of the dress represents freedom, and not limited by attempts to protect the body, it represents the power to celebrate yourself,” she announced on Instagram

She said at the time that she kept her sexuality hidden because “there is a lot of homophobic sentiment in her school around being lesbian.”

“I didn’t tell anyone, but I’ll tell you,” she told co-star David Subritzky.

“It’s actually nerve-wracking to talk about it. Growing up, I always thought maybe I was a little bi-curious. I only dated straight people, but growing up I was in love with girls,” she explains.

Maria said she had never been with a woman until a few weeks before filming I’m a Celeb.

“We finally got together and it just felt natural. It just feels damn good to say it,” she gushed.

“I don’t want to carry any shame or stigma about it and… I just want to break out of that.”
