Rebecca Judd (nee Twigley) (born 25th January 1983) is an Australian model, and wife of Australian Football League-(AFL)-star Chris Judd. Twigley is most notable for a dress she wore to the 2004 Brownlow Medal presentation, which made headlines in newspapers the following day. In 2007, Twigley also presented the weekend weather segment of Seven News Perth.
In September 2004, Twigley appeared at the Brownlow Medal presentation with boyfriend Chris Judd wearing a very revealing red dress. The dress was custom-made by Perth designer Ruth Tarvydas, and was valued at AU$2000. Although it was Chris Judd who won the medal, media attention the following day was focused on Twigley and the dress she wore. Overnight, Rebecca Twigley became a "household name". Twigley received more hits on Australian news website news.com.au than Miss Universe 2004, Jennifer Hawkins, did when she was crowned, and surpassed all previous records for a single news day. AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou described Rebecca Twigley as one of the 20 highlights of the 2004 AFL season. Speaking about the dress, Twigley said: "I really didn't think it would grab that much attention, but I got hounded on the red carpet. Everyone wanted an interview and pictures." Over two years on, the media still refers to the dress she wore as "that dress". Radio presenter Jon Faine criticised Twigley's choice of fashion, saying that: "A lot of effort has gone in this season by football codes... to try to stop footballers looking at women as objects as nothing other than sexual desire or bits of meat and flesh... It's kind of like they are undoing all the work that was done earlier in the season." Colleague Virginia Trioli disagreed, saying that "They are powerful, individual, attractive, strong women who want to look nice." Twigley donated the dress to national children's charity TLC for Kids. The dress was auctioned off in October 2004, going for AU$23,000. TLC later rejected the winning bid when it discovered the buyer had links to a dating agency. The charity then offered the underbidders the dress, but later changed their mind because they could not guarantee media coverage for the purchaser. The dress was returned to Twigley, who donated it to Judd's football club, the West Coast Eagles.
Following the Brownlow presentation, Twigley received a number of offers from Australian television networks. Her first television role was as a guest presenter on Nine Perth program Just Add Water. Twigley also presented a news report about Melbourne Cup fashion for Seven News in October 2006. The following year, Twigley started presenting the weekend weather for the Perth bulletin of Seven News. Her presenting role drew criticism from some public, who complained that Twigley looked anorexic. Twigley spoke out against the claims, saying that she had never suffered from an eating disorder, and she believes the fuss is due to her relationship with Chris Judd. Seven News director Shaun Menegola said it was a shame Twigley had been attacked by some viewers, and explained that Twigley's tall stature meant she looked thinner on camera. In September 2007, Twigley announced she would be moving to Melbourne with Chris Judd. She has denied she will immediately get a role with a Melbourne television station. Twigley completed her studies in Speech and language pathology at La Trobe University in 2008, and is currently working in adult rehabilitation at the Alfred Hospital. Twigley is also a fashion ambassador for Myer, attending events such as the Melbourne Cup and The Australian Open Golf. On the 31st December 2010 Twigley married Chris Judd at Melbourne's Carsouel at Albert Park Lake.
