The awards season is finally heating up and while the Oscar nominees were released earlier in the day, the Brits took the spotlight on Tuesday night at London’s O2 Arena, as they returned in full force from their pandemic-induced hiatus.
While the awards were obviously a major part of the show, there were also some remarkable performances, and with everyone from Adele to Little Simz up for awards, this year’s red carpet looks were also set to be a highlight. And that they were.
An Armani Privé-clad Adele returned to the Brit Awards stage after a six-year long absence, bringing the sort of glitz and glamour you’d expect from the most-celebrated singer in Brits history.
Little Simz, who won the award for Best New Artist, wowed us not only by looking incredibly cool on the red carpet, but also by giving an inspiring winner’s speech, encouraging kids from all walks of life to “keep dreaming.”
Glass Animals (Edmund Irwin-Singer, Joe Seaward, Dave Bayley, and Drew MacFarlane) went all-out twee, delivering up a technicolour take on the kind of fits seen in Brideshead Revisited. And it worked.
Joy Crookes decided to commission a beautiful bespoke outfit influenced by her South Asian roots for the awards this year.
