Ever since I hit the frigid age of teen rebellion and discovered the world that is decent music, I religiously watch and tweet the shit out of The Brit Awards every single year. A week since the event, this is the one night a year where british music is celebrated is the best way possible; a massive sesh in the O2 where try hard bands smoke Mary J Whana under the table, a forgotten 2000's indie bloke presents an award smashed out his face, someone falls off the stage and Coldplay still don't realise that they're not relevant anymore. That being said, one of my favourite aspects of TBA definitely has to be the red carpet outfits. Of course any red carpet event is going to feature some of the best that designers have to offer at the moment, however this isn't just any old red carpet event.
With three nominations and one win for Best British Single between the girls, they slayed the whole night of The Brits. While some critics have condemned their red carpet looks as extreme fashion faux pas I literally love how each of the girls have their own take as opposed to typical girl band coordinating outfits.
Jade went for a stunning silver side-slit dress and wore it with a pair of long black leather gloves and black strappy stilettos. The silver satin suits her skin tone beautifully and is definitely channeling old hollywood mode; especially with the gloves. They make such a dramatic statement while still keeping it refined and coherent with the overall look.
This gorgeous dress is screaming Black Swan aesthetic and I am L I V I N G for Perrie's look. I love the contrast of textures from the patent leather bodice that would do Madonna proud with the feathered train which gives it the ultimate red-carpet look. With a piece this show stopping, she kept it simple with a pair of black stilettos and a sleek hair style.
Trying to find this dress online was almost impossible until I stumbled across the NAMILIA instagram page and there it was in all its distressed glory. Surprisingly, this dress is possibly one of the tamest designs out of the whole SS17 collection. Leigh-Anne paired it with a pair of perspex strap stilettos and a sleek updo.

This look is very typical Jesy as she tends to go for more edgier cuts and textures in her outfits. I love the zip-up slit detailing at the front as it elongates the look and shows the perfect amount of her tanned pins. Unlike the other girls, she went for a pointed patent black platform.

Even though her Satur-days are no longer at their peak, Mollie King is still killing the red carpet game. I love how fun her Brit look was and it's definitely because of the unconventionally HUGE faux fur throw that she carried with her. Think old Hollywood glamour meets cyber gal. With this she wore a silver sequin mini dress with hoop detailing on the straps and a pair of silver mules.

Lianne La Havas
Nominated for best female solo artist, Lianne looked stunningly beautiful in this Jenny Packham sheer embroidered gown, making it rather risque by layering it over a black two piece set. She opted for some black platforms with embroidery butterflies and a statement black and gold choker.
