Music stars were out in full force at London’s O2 Arena for the Brit awards on Tuesday. From Adele in Armani (swoon) to the trend for flesh-flashing cut-out dresses and Doctor Who’s baby bump reveal, we bring you the best fashion moments from the ceremony.
The Easy On Me singer stunned on the red carpet in a custom Armani gown which featured her signature sweetheart neckline, although the rock she wore on her ring finger stole the show. The blinding pear-shaped diamond she flashed has sparked speculation that she is engaged to her millionaire boyfriend Rich Paul. The London-born singer scooped the coveted titles of Artist of the Year, Album of the Year for 30 and Song of the Year for comeback single Easy On Me.
Anne-Marie and Ed Sheeran
Before she took a tumble while performing at the ceremony, Anne Marie looked chic in black on the red carpet. The British singer opted for an edgy cut-out crop top, which showed-off her tattoo, with a leather jacket and trousers. She wore her hair in a high ponytail. Ed Sheeran bagged the producer of the year award after losing out to Adele in the big categories. On the night, he wore an eye-catching blue velvet suit.
The Bangladeshi-Irish songstress was inspired by Bollywood for this year’s awards ceremony. Crookes wowed in a gold beaded lehnga, with a bra-like top and asymmetrical skirt. She completed the outfit with a floor-length hooded cape, pearl-detailed chains and gold finger cuffs which accentuated the henna on her hands.
The British stand-up hosted the awards ceremony for the first time. The 33-year-old was a hit with viewers, choosing to make digs at Boris Johnson over his partygate scandal rather than the artists. Gilligan brought a fresh atmosphere to the Brits, but, for his red carpet look, he opted for an old-school tuxedo and a big smile.
Jodie Whittaker and Vicky McClure
Doctor Who star Whittaker revealed that she is expecting a baby while walking the red carpet. The actress, who is pregnant with her second child, wore a classy cream and orange gown by British brand Cimone, completing the look with orange lipstick. Line Of Duty’s McClure smiled in a structural lilac corset top and trousers by Azzi & Osta.
AJ Odudu and Oti Mabuse
Strictly star Odudu brought the glitz and glitter from the ballroom to the Brits. She opted for a corset-style minidress with draped neon tassels. After injuring her leg ahead of the BBC One live final in December, she walked the red carpet in heels – not a cast or crutch in sight. Meanwhile dancer and judge Mabuse beamed in a lacy gold dress which featured a lingerie-inspired top half. She completed the look with simple gold hoops and a scraped-back hairdo.
American teen sensation Olivia Rodrigo chose a mirrored gown by designer Alexandre Vauthier for the ceremony. She looked ethereal, wearing her brunette locks loose and accessorising with delicate silver jewellery. The 18-year-old won international song of the year.
Maya Jama and Ashley Roberts
Jama and Roberts both stunned in cut-out gowns by designer Monot. Jama sizzled on the red carpet in her black, barely-there outfit which she accessorised with a furry stole, silver pointed shoes and dangly earrings. Meanwhile Heart radio presenter Roberts completed her racy look with a pair of leather gloves and flashed her leg through a thigh-high split in her dress.
Simz exuded cool on the carpet, wearing a matrix-style leather coat and sunglasses over a neon-green shirt. The British rapper, who won the Best New Artist award and collected the gong with her mum, performed a track from her latest album. The Crown’s Emma Corrin made a guest appearance during the song.
Mo Farah and Tom Daley
Olympic medallist Farah pulled his signature move as he posed on the Brits red carpet in a brown checked suit. His choice of footwear nodded to his running background. Diver Daley left his knitwear at home, swapping sweaters for a fashion-forward Louis Vuitton look which featured a boldly patterned shirt with a waistcoat.
