Hilary Barry is wowing fans once again with her latest "Formal Friday" outfit.

This week the much-loved TV presenter donned a bright red gown, which she revealed was the dress she wore to her own high school ball in 1987.

Alongside the picture, the 50-year-old wrote: "This is the dress I wore to my school ball in 1987.

"Today I'm wearing it as a tribute to all the students who will miss their balls because of the lockdown. We feel for you. Remember your sacrifice right now is saving people's lives."

"If you'd still like to get dressed up I'd love to see your pictures," she added.

As well as her red dress - which features a big bow on one shoulder - Hilary also wore a pair of gumboots, so she could still work outside in the garden.

This outfit comes after Hilary dressed in an elegant black sequined dress with a low plunging mesh neckline and a tiara last week.

Alongside the picture, the 50-year-old wrote: "In case you missed it it's #formalfriday - tiaras optional."

Last year Barry won The New Zealand Television Award for Best News and Current Affairs Presenter for her coverage of the Christchurch mosque attacks.

We love it! Keep up the amazing outfits, Hilary!
