The Veronicas recreated their topless ARIAs outfits for Mardi Gras.

When The Veronicas took the ARIAs stage late last year wearing what looked like nothing but glitter on the top half of their bodies, viewers went into meltdown.


How did they make glitter into an actual outfit? And make it look so… good?

Clearly, it’s a trick they’re willing to capitalise on, because at last night’s Mardi Gras parade in Sydney, Jess and Lisa Origliasso wore two very similar outfits – albeit, in black.

Covered in body glitter and wearing tight latex black pants, they gave a performance that rivalled their show-stopping one at the 2016 ARIAs, as Jess’ girlfriend Ruby Rose watched on.

Heaven on earth at Mardi Gras. ❤❤❤❤ @jessicaveronica @lisa_veronica @theveronicasmusic

After the iconic ARIAs performance, the biggest question on viewers minds was: how did they put together such a unique look – and how did they get the glitter off for their appearance only moments later?

According to Jess at the time, “It took the world’s best makeup and special effects team to get us ready up for last nights awards and hosting.”

She then tagged the “incredible” people who put together their glitter look, and in the process, revealed the secret behind it: body paint AND latex.

Speaking exclusively to Yahoo Be, Jess Watson Miller — who was largely responsible for the outfits — explained latex prosthetics were instrumental in preserving the sisters', erm, modesty.

“We were actually using special prosthetics on their breasts which are made by a company in New Zealand, so they were custom made for them,” she told the website.

“They are prosthetics that can glued on and covered and because of the glitter we were able to blend them in seamlessly. They give a seamless finish and a bit better coverage.”

Miller also said the glitter removal was a relatively quick process. “It comes off with hot water and a lot of soap ... We did whatever we could to get them into their next look," she told Be.

Jess gave the team a shout out for this effort in her Instagram caption, writing: "This team had 20 mins to get all the glitter off our bodies. They were incredible."

So now they've done it again - and we hope it's not the last time.
