This year's Brit Awards were a wealth of entertainment: from Katy Perry's return to the U.K. stage with an unabashedly political performance of Chained to the Rhythm (see: giant skeleton puppets of Donald Trump and Theresa May) and heart-felt dedications to David Bowie and George Michael, plus no short supply of stellar performances and deserving winners. Girl group Little Mix took home the prize for Best British Single, while The 1975 were awarded the coveted Best British Group award. But we all know the real winners were the clothes.
Though the music awards are geared towards honoring the best in British talent, Katy Perry stole the show, not just for her epic performance, but also for her stand-out red carpet style: she rocked a matching blazer and mini dress in blush pink beading that faded into gray-blue around the hem. But she wasn’t the only one who got the memo last night, the red carpet was dominated by a solid selection of pink, metallic, black and red pieces.
Aside from the strict color palette, there seemed to be another rule: go mini, go maxi or go home. Of the dresses we saw, they really were one extreme or the other. Mollie King rocked what we can only assume was an homage to Kendall Jenner’s Paris Hilton-inspired 21st birthday look (a strappy, silver mini dress), while Best British Female Solo Artist-nominee Liane La Havas opted for a full-length, sheer, embroidered maxi dress.
And once we could tear our eyes away from the stunning looks, we noticed that everyone from Héloïse Letissier (AKA Christine and the Queens) to Natalia Vodianova and Billie JD Porter was rocking a pair of stacked platforms that would make Marc Jacob proud.
