There were plenty of headline-grabbing dresses at the 2017 Logies (Gorgi Coghlan’s tulle extravaganza, anyone?). But perhaps the most talked-about frock of the night belonged to Channel 9’s Sylvia Jeffreys.

Karl Stefanovic buried his face in his hands as he dissolved into giggles. Lisa Wilkinson tried to hide her smirk behind hers. And Tim Gilbert sheepishly bit his knuckle.
