There Was A Very Special Meaning Behind Jessica Marais’ Logies Outfit

She may not have won the coveted Gold Logie Award, but last night Jessica Marais still came up trumps, taking out the Best Actress Award for her role in Love Child.

Not only that, but the actress won in the fashion stakes, too. She dazzled in a gorgeous J’Aton dress (which our publisher, Jackie Frank, nominated as her favourite of the evening, describing it as “elegant and on trend”).

But it was Marais’ accessories that really caught our attention. Specifically? A simple black ring she wore on her left hand.

The ring – called the Acceptance Ring – was designed by Marc Newson as part of a campaign for marriage equality called ‘Until We All Belong’ by Airbnb. Made of black resin, the ring is “incomplete”, with a small gap, which symbolises the gap in marriage equality in Australia. The ring costs just $3.50 – and so far more than 35,000 have been sold in Australia. You can buy your Acceptance Ring here.
