THE British music scene's brightest stars are out in force today for the 2018 BRIT Awards, and those parading on the red carpet brought some daring fashion hits - and a few misses.
New Rules singer Dua Lipa was an early winner on the night, taking home the award for Best British Female. And she rocked the red carpet in a giant froufrou frock she sarcastically described as "subtle":
One of Dua's red carpet poses - taking a knee on the red carpet, and letting her voluminous dress spill out around her - seemed like an (intentional?) tribute to 2011 comedy Bridesmaids' most infamous scene:
"You're really doin' it, Dua? You're s**ttin' on the BRIT Awards red carpet ..."
You can always count on pop stars to bring the OTT fashion - Rita Ora, who memorably rocked a bathrobe on the red carpet at the MTV EMAs last year, brought the glamour in a white feathered frock that rivalled Dua's for drama:
British super-couple Cheryl Cole and ex-1D member Liam Payne put recent rumours of a split behind them with this united front:
Model Hailey Baldwin proved that matching your lipstick to your dress can really pay off:
Our Kylie showed you can dress for the London cold and still look super-glam in this Little Red Riding Hood ensemble:
Actress Noomi Rapace's ensemble was ... a lot:
Ex-Fifth Harmony black sheep gone solo, Camila Cabello was ethereal in baby blue:
Little Mix member Jesy Nelson somehow made a high-waisted leather avocado jumpsuit work:
Oh, and those white roses everyone's carrying? They're a symbolic gesture in support of the Time's Up and Me Too movements, much like the acting world's gesture of wearing black.
Many female stars carried roses on the red carpet - but fewer men, something that nominee Paloma Faith wasn't happy about.
"The only thing I'm upset about tonight is not more men carrying white roses. I think they should have," she told BBC News, before pinning a rose to a member of rock group Royal Blood.
