Hilary Barry has had fans in hysterics with her latest "Formal Friday" Instagram post ...

As Auckland reaches the end of another week in level 4 lockdown, the much-loved TV presenter captured the mood of the city.

While Barry usually encourages Kiwis to dress up in their most glamourous look, for this week's instalment of Formal Friday she posed barefoot with smudged makeup and messy hair.

But she still retained the tiara that features in every formal Friday post.

Alongside the picture, the 51-year-old cheekily wrote: "Are we there yet?"

Barry launched the "Formal Friday" trend last year, which went viral when she posted a photo of herself in a gown while working from home at the start of the first level 4 lockdown in March 2020.

From then on, thousands of other New Zealanders responded every week with photos of their formal outfits on Fridays.

Across social media, New Zealanders thanked Barry for getting them out of their track pants.

Keep up the amazing outfits, Hilary!
