Watching last night’s Brit Awards, I was glued to the T.V. screen as the likes of Tinie Tempah and Plan B took to the stage and as I loved Adele’s performance of Someone Like You. The MasterCard British Album of the Year went to Mumford & Sons, Plan B was awarded Best Male Solo artist and Take That won best British group, making it their 20th Brit award!
The rules of red carpet style at the Brits are quite different from other award ceremonies. Taking fashion risks is key, and it’s more about rock and roll that elegance and demure. For me, on first impressions, none of the dresses had the ‘wow’ factor. There were some really nice looks and lots of designer labels but it has to be said that the sharply dressed gentlemen of the evening gave the ladies a run for their money on the red carpet.
Tinie Tempah looked stylish as ever and very sharp in black and white. He stole the show performing his medley of hits and he bagged himself Best breakthrough Act and the Best Single Award (yay!) He’s ‘got so many clothes he keeps some in his aunt’s house’ and he definitely chose the right outfit for his entrance.
Kimberly Wyatt looked cute as a button in her simple brocade lace dress and nude stilettos –and I, for one would love to have her hairdresser’s phone number! Other favourites of mine were Cheryl Cole and Tess Daly.
Critic’s Choice winner Jesse J looked great except for her Vivienne Westwood micro dress which looked like it was created by a project runway contestant who ran out of time before finishing it! Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of Jessie J and she may be number one in the charts but this pop star won’t be winning any awards for her taste in fashion!
