The 2022 BRIT Awards are here and after announcing gender-neutral nominations, tonight’s awards show is historic, so naturally we’re looking forward to some truly statement-making red carpet looks. With Adele’s long-awaited return following the release of her fourth studio album, 30and throttling Gen Z popstar Olivia Rodrigo on our AirPods, this year’s music awards are certainly one to watch, but we’re in it for the fashion.
The standout looks of the evening were British singer and songwriter Joy Crookes’ breathtaking tailored outfit, honoring her South Asian roots. The elegantly opulent ensemble included a beaded bra top, an asymmetrical mini skirt and a luxurious embellished cape. Elsewhere, fellow singer Griff wore a voluminous and elegant dress in patent black and beige stripes, while the “Good 4 U” singer stunned in a shimmering cowl-neck gown by Alexandre Vauthier Couture. Meanwhile, Adele opted for an old-school glam aesthetic, wearing a floor-length black Armani Privé dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline.
Ed Sheeran donned a striking cobalt blue suit by Etro while rapper Little Simz was inspired by The matrix, wearing a leather trench coat, adding lime green pants for a pop of color. The Prize Presenter Maya Jama channeled Cher with her all-black two-piece.
