Cricket WAGs prep for Allan Border carpet

They may not be as well-known as their AFL counterparts, but cricket's WAGs are hoping their Allan Border Medal looks will smash it out of the park - or at least keep them off the dreaded worst-dressed list.

Monday night's ceremony to crown Australia's best cricketer is known as much for its fashion as sport, but many of the players' wives and girlfriends - known as WAGs - are unaccustomed to the spotlight.

"Your first red carpet event is daunting, you worry about what people are thinking of you and your outfit," wife of wicketkeeper Matthew Wade, Julia, told AAP.

"It definitely took me a while to get used to that aspect."

Ms Wade is among a host of WAGs who have called in stylists, choosing sister act Bianca and Bridgett Roccisano to curate a custom look.

"As a mum, walking the red carpet is the last thing I'm used to, so working with Bianca and Bridgett has made the last couple of years a lot easier," she said.

"They know me really well and they make the lead-up process a lot more fun (and) definitely not daunting."

While careful not to give anything away, Ms Wade said to expect her in something a bit "edgy, a bit of drama".

"It's a very European gown, not typically seen on an Australian red carpet," Bianca Roccisano said of the Oglia-Loro gown.

Meanwhile, celebrity stylist Lana Wilkinson will be working with David Warner's wife, Candice.

Wilkinson is also responsible for Steve Smith's fiancee Dani Willis and Adam Zampa's partner Harriet Palmer.

"These women are not celebrities, they're women with their own careers, they're mums, supporting their husbands on their big night," the stylist said.

"Cricketers can sometimes be away from home for six months at a time so it's really a night for them to get dressed up, have fun and go on a date with their partner.

"I can look after the rest."
