Christian Wilkins wears a satin suit to VRC Kennedy Oaks Club Lunch

Christian Wilkins was the beau of the ball on Wednesday as he attended the VRC Kennedy Oaks Club Lunch at Crown Palladium in Melbourne.

The new Victoria Racing Club ambassador, 27, looked as fabulous and fashion-forward as ever in a double-breasted grey satin suit.

He added a bronze satin shirt, which he left partially unbuttoned, and carried a $4,310 Gucci handbag over his shoulder.

A connoisseur of all things makeup and style, Christian gently curled his long golden locks and slicked on a subtle touch of blue eyeshadow.

The son of television presenter Richard Wilkins gave a twirl for the cameras upon his arrival, making sure he was the centre of attention. 

It comes after Christian hit back at a troll who called him an ‘attention-seeking r****d’ for wearing a feminine outfit to Penfolds Derby Day on Saturday.

The model and influencer told Daily Mail Australia at the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday he would rather be called a ‘f*g’ than have trolls make fun of people with disabilities.

‘My eldest brother has Down syndrome and I just don’t think that people should use [that word],’ Christian said.

‘If people want to attack me, I would honestly prefer to be called a f*g. At least that’s me and my community and I can defend it,’ he added.

He continued: ‘I know, speaking of behalf of my brother, he doesn’t necessarily have the ability to articulate.’

A keyboard warrior had called Christian ‘an attention-seeking r****d’ on Instagram over the weekend in response to his Derby Day outfit.

The meme listed several ‘features’ on the costume’s packaging, including ‘tucking tape’, ‘chicken fillets’ and ‘Richard Wilkins’ tick of approval’

Christian responded by reposting the cruel meme on his Instagram Stories, adding that he found the term ‘r****d’ – a slur aimed at disabled people – objectionable. 

‘Honestly think what you want,’ Christian wrote. ‘But as a sibling of someone with a disability, I find this term extremely offensive.’

Christian, who has four siblings, is the son of Richard Wilkins, one of Channel Nine’s longest-serving presenters. Richard’s eldest son, Adam 47, has Down syndrome.
