Debut are taking a trip down memory lane to reflect on some of the best dressed celebs in BRIT Award history. With less than 12 hours till BRITs 2021, let’s remind ourselves of the gloriously high fashion standards set by previous nominees and guests.
Lizzo, BRITs 2020
Lizzo never fails to make an impression, and at the 40th anniversary of the awards she did just that. Her cocoa-hued dress, designed by Moschino, was chocolate-inspired with a flared bottom and went deliciously well with her chocolate bar shaped purse. Lizzo certainly looked tasty on the red carpet.
Billie Eilish, BRITs 2020
Making her BRITs debut at only 18 years old, Eilish donned a camel co-ord by Burberry. She looked fierce and every bit a musician. As if the co-ord wasn’t enough to make people notice her, Eilish paid extra attention to accessories by wearing the Burberry pattern on her socks, jewellery and she even had her nails done with the tartan pattern.
Geri Horner, BRITs 1997
If you hear the words ‘BRIT Awards’ and ‘Geri Halliwell’ (now Geri Horner) in the same sentence, you instantly think of the infamous Union Jack dress she wore in 1997. When the Spice Girls performed their song Wannabe, Ginger Spice made a statement. She wore a black Gucci frock covered with the Union Jack on the front, made from tea towels, and a peace sign on the back. This iconic dress will always be one to remember from the BRITs.
Joy Crookes, BRITs 2020
Crookes was nominated for the Rising Star Award last year, and she blew minds when walking the red carpet. Crookes looked absolutely stunning wearing a yellow Indian lehenga and chunni (a top and skirt with a matching scarf). A year on, and people are still loving Crookes’ outfit, sharing their love on her recent socials post where she wrote: “this time last year I went to the Brits and dressed as the girl I always wish I saw on tv.”
Ellie Goulding, BRITs 2020
Goulding certainly stole looks whilst she graced the red carpet in one of the boldest looks of the night. Wearing a patchwork dress designed by Nathan Klein from the Koche SS20 catwalk, Goulding left little to imagination, showing off her toned physique with the cut-out details and statement black heels.
Anne-Marie, BRITs 2020
The Essex singer looked angelic in her Galvan Salar sequined chiffon mini dress that she paired with an extravagant Tomo Koizumi Fall 2019 RTW Coat. The coat had hues of pink and purple at the bottom blending into white ruffles, making Anne-Marie a pure beauty.
Millie Bobby Brown, BRITs 2018
The Stranger Things star made a very chic impression on the red carpet at the 2018 BRITs when she wore a flocked tulle ruffle dress by design house Rodarte. The 14 year old at the time, carried a white rose supporting the #TimesUp movement, which went perfectly with the white polka dot dress and baby pink heels she wore. The dress had a flower embellishment above the tiered skirt that made Brown look elegant and youthful.
Dua Lipa, BRITs 2018
One of this year’s three-time nominees stunned the red carpet in 2018 wearing a pink Giambattista Valli gown. Lipa showcased her long legs with a minidress style front to the generous train that complimented the ruffled gown. We are very excited to see what Dua Lipa wears to this year’s red carpet.
Taylor Swift, BRITs 2015
Taylor Swift is a music icon that has worn many designers from Stella McCartney to Julian McDonald to Oscar de la Renta; but one outfit Swift wore that screams glamour is her gown from the 2015 BRITs. Swift donned a black Roberto Cavalli Atelier gown with sheer panels and a red dragon down her back.
Kate Moss, BRITs 2014
The supermodel attended the BRITs in place of the late David Bowie, who won the best male solo artist, and whilst she was there, fans Loved her outfit. Moss wore the infamous ‘rabbit costume’ designed by Kansai Yamamoto – the actual Ziggy Stardust playsuit that Bowie wore in 1972!
