If Cinderella herself walked the red carpet, we wouldn’t notice because Bindi Irwin’s daughter Grace Warrior, 2 1/2, was more glamorous than any Disney princess at her red-carpet debut.
The toddler attended the “Wildlife and Wild Places” Steve Irwin Gala in Brisbane on Saturday night with her mom Bindi, her dad Chandler Powell, her grandma Terri Irwin, and her uncle Robert Irwin. She wore a beautiful dress with a sparkly pink bodice, a pink tulle skirt, and a belted sash across her waist. Her brown hair was curly and half pulled up in a ponytail, and she wore the cutest pink sparkly sandals to complete the look. She’s also holding a tiny little Bingo toy from Bluey, which is so darn cute. Grace absolutely stole the show, and we love that she got to attend this special family event!
The whole Irwin family looked great, with Powell in a gray tux, Bindi in a black-and-tan dress, Terri in a long-sleeve emerald-green gown, and Robert in a black tux with a khaki bowtie. Robert’s girlfriend Rorie Buckey attended the event as well, in a strapless gown covered in shimmery white scales. At one point, she even helped Robert and Terri hold a large snake for a photo, proving she’s already part of the family!
Robert shared several photos from the event on Instagram, including one with Bindi bringing Grace out on stage and the toddler smiling for the audience. He captioned it: “An incredible night at our Steve Irwin Gala dinner here in Brisbane raising funds and awareness for the charity that my mum and dad created. It was our biggest event yet, and I loved spending the night with my favourite people in the world! ❤️” (See the photos HERE.)
Bindi commented, “The most remarkable night. Love celebrating Dad’s life and legacy, as a family.”
One person commented, “Omg I am so proud of grace be able to join you guys for her first real Steve Irwin gala that was a beautiful night wish I could join you guys great job on the event.”
“Grace is the cutest ever ????,” another person wrote.
Bindi also shared a cute video recap of the event, featuring her family being silly on the red carpet and a cute photo of Powell holding Grace, who looks absolutely delighted by the lollipop in her hand. This girl is too cute!
“Tonight we celebrate the #SteveIrwinGala 2023 in Brisbane ????,” she captioned it. “Raising funds and awareness for @wildlifewarriorsworldwide. Thank you to the extraordinary 900 guests who have joined us on this remarkable night!”
The Irwins are so cute, and we know the late Steve Irwin would be proud!
In September, Robert shared a throwback video of his dad on his TikTok in honor of the 17th anniversary of Steve’s death (he was tragically killed by a stingray in 2006). The Crocodile Hunter was doing an interview and was asked if anything would make him “give away” what he’s doing now. “Yes. Yes, there is,” he answered. “When my children can take the football that I call wildlife conservation and run it off.”
“When they’re ready to run up our mission, I will gladly step aside,” he continued. “And, I guarantee you, it’ll be the proudest moment of my life.”
He added, “And my job will be done then, and only then will I know that I have achieved my ultimate goal: to stand aside and let them run up my mission.” And they are doing a fabulous job!
