The Brit Awards returned to our screens for 2014, with more glitz and glam than ever before. Although the focus was on the music, we couldn’t help but scrutinise all the looks on the red carpet!
See who really stole the show this time round with our best – and worst! – dressed of the night.
1) Ellie Goulding:
Changing from that Vivienne Westwood pastel-pink gown that got everyone talking (just me who thought it was equally stunning?), Ellie Goulding accepted her Best Female Solo Artist award in a shimmering gold dress encrusted with silver and bronze sequins reminiscent of the Gatsby era.
The dress was complete with a décolletage neckline and a beautifully sheer fishtail hemline trailing behind her. She finished the look with carefree blonde waves and gold heels.
2) Katy Perry:
If Katy Perry isn’t flaunting her hourglass figure or pulling off some seriously quirky costumes with envious ease then there’s something wrong… It seemed that the singer didn’t disappoint at the Brit Awards with another encrusted metallic dress complete with a plunging neckline and short, capped sleeves.
The dress was short, figure-hugging and daring… But it was nothing short of show-stopping.
3) Fearne Cotton:
Fearne looked like she’d stepped right out of the 1950s in a metallic silver prom dress complete with grey, sheer sleeves and neckline.
Perhaps she overdone it on this particular colour with a silver bag and silver peep-toe heels… But she definitely saved herself by keeping her make-up and hair to a bare minimum, letting her outfit do all the work.
Even the flashing lights on stage couldn’t beat the stunning shimmers of this mermaid-like dress. Beyoncé looked oh-so-glamorous in a floor-length sweeper of greens and blues that glittered like the night’s stars.
5) Rosie Huntington-Whiteley
The model came out looking radiant in a sexy, red mini-dress – once again, complete with sequins galore and a small, black zebra print for extra edge. Rosie completed her look with plain black heels and a dark statement bow cinched around her waist.
1) Nicole Scherzinger
Nicole’s silky black tuxedo separates would have been amazing teamed with something a little more… sophisticated? This reminded me of Angelina Jolie’s BAFTA ceremony suit, but did she pull this off like Jolie? I don’t think so.
The cape jacket looked out of place against the leathery look of bondage wear teamed underneath it… Although she did keep the rest of the outfit simple with her hair pulled back and glossy gold heels, it just wasn’t able to win me over with what could have been classic statement attire.
2) Kylie Minogue
At first, Kylie’s choice of a PVC black mini-dress seemed ideal… But it was soon realised that the singer clung to it and the length was far too short. Maybe the white trimmed bows that stuck out like a sore thumb were just too young for her.
3) Kate Moss:
Although a replica of one of David Bowie’s original performance suits, Kate should have stuck with simpler means for her Brit Awards ensemble. This look should have stayed in the 20th century along with Bowie’s countless other quirky outfits. It didn’t do the model any justice.
4) Lily Allen
House of Holland, fresh from the runway, was what Lily Allen wore to the Brit Awards.
A shimmering shift dress with three toned panels could have worked well together if it wasn’t for the cut-out shapes dotted across the dress… I’m a fan of dip-dye myself as well but Lily’s choice of a Lady Gaga yellow hair-dye clashed horrifically against her dark brown hair. The only thing she got right was wearing black courts.
