Aussie actress Aisha Dee was at the beach one minute and at the ARIA awards the next.
The Bold Type star told 9Honey Celebrity’s Lucia Hawley that she was literally chilling on the sand just hours before walking the red carpet at Sydney’s Hordern Pavillion.
“I’m here last minute,” the 29-year-old revealed to us. “I was at the beach earlier, but I got a bunch of mates here and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll come.'”

And with this being her first ARIAs, the Gold Coast-raised actress was all ears when her friends gave her some survival tips.
“I just keep hearing about fried chicken, which is somewhere and I’ve literally been looking for it,” she said. “I feel like that’s what’s going to help me survive.”
While Dee didn’t rock up to the ceremony in her beach gear, she did still keep it casual yet chic in a silk ensemble.
“This is a boss suit and I picked it because it feels like pyjamas,” she laughed. “No underwire in sight.”
Dee is best known for playing Kat Edison in Stan’s hit series The Bold Type, moving stateside for the role – and she’s missed the Australian way of life since the big move.
“There’s definitely a different vibe, in terms of a weird kind of hierarchy that exists sometimes,” she told 9Honey Celebrity back in 2019.
“And the weird celebrity stuff is definitely very different in America. So, I do kind of miss Australia at times, but… I mean in general, it’s the same stuff, in a different country, you know?”
