Taylor Swift In Roberto Cavalli Atelier – 2015 BRIT Awards

Taylor Swift In Roberto Cavalli Atelier - 2015 BRIT Awards

Taylor Swift attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England, following the Elle Style Awards.

The singer set the red carpet on fire with her black Roberto Cavalli Atelier gown, which is very much a love-to-see-you-leave kinda gown as the back is enriched with a red lacquered dragon made of baguette crystals, beads, sequins and silk threads to create an effect of reptile scales in 3D.

I love how this look has maximum impact while still possessing an elegant feminine appeal.

Taylor really loves to keep us on our toes with her red carpet looks these days.

While the hair style appeared to age her somewhat, it does complement the chic nature of the gown.

Kim Kardashian In Julien Macdonald – 2015 BRIT Awards

Kim Kardashian In Julien Macdonald - 2015 BRIT Awards

Kim Kardashian attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England, where she was on hand to introduce her husband Kanye West’s performance, telling the crowd to be upstanding as if God himself was entering the room.

The reality TV star opted to wear a Julien Macdonald Fall 2015 black jumpsuit with the designer’s signature cut-out detailing, which leaves me almost speechless.

The words ‘how?’, ‘why?’ and ‘do you possess a mirror?’ immediately spring to mind, as this is so very unflattering in every conceivable way.

Rita Ora In Zuhair Murad Couture – 2015 BRIT Awards

Rita Ora In Zuhair Murad Couture - 2015 BRIT Awards

Rita Ora was back in London after a busy Oscar weekend for the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25).

My issue with Rita is that I find her frustratingly inconsistent.

She stunned on the Oscars red carpet, made us question a lot of things upon sight of her butt cheek in Donna Karan Atelier, and here, at least for me, she wore her best look of the three, looking amazing in Zuhair Murad Couture.

Oozing sexy appeal in a very chic and elegant way, this Spring 2015 Couture bronze silk tulle jumpsuit with plunging neckline and cascading crystal and sequin embroidery doesn’t scream try-hard.

I’m singing hallelujah for the continual omission of the red lip – it would’ve been so brash here – and the simple styling.

This is yet another check off my red carpet wish list that I wanted to see on Jennifer Lopez.

Ironically, the dress I had picked for Rita Ora was the dress Jennifer Lopez wore to the Vanity Fair party.

Madonna In Armani Privé & Nicolas Jebran – 2015 BRIT Awards

BRIT Awards 2015 - Show

With BBC Radio refusing to play her music, Madonna used the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England, as a platform to showcase her latest single.

Going for a Spanish matador vibe, the singer wore an Armani Privé custom black silk cape with red lining and shaded embroidery, with ruby-red and jet-black Swarovski crystals.

The cape, which was removed early in the performance, was worn over a bedazzling Nicolas Jebran custom jacket with Armani Privé trousers and black leather suspenders completing the look.

Visually impactful and dramatic, it was refreshing to see Madonna not stoop to her butt-revealing antics of the Grammy Awards, letting this be all about what she’s really selling – the performance and the music.

FKA twigs In Alexander McQueen – 2015 BRIT Awards

FKA twigs In Alexander McQueen - 2015 BRIT Awards

FKA twigs attended the 2015 BRIT Awards held at the O2 Arena on Wednesday (February 25) in London, England.

After a succession of fairly uneventful looks at this event, the British musician wore an Alexander McQueen Spring 2015 embellished dress over flared trousers.
The look is captivating for its de rigueur avant-garde appeal.

We – or at least I – don’t want to see big ball gowns at music award shows. These are the nights when risks should be taken and for that I love this unique look from head to toe.
