When Katy Perry labeled this the era of “purposeful pop,” she meant it. Following her politically charged performance at the Grammys, the “Chained to the Rhythm” songstress flew across the pond to take the stage at the Brit Awards on Wednesday.
The 2017 Brit Awards are here. Featuring the best of the music business, the likes of Ellie Goulding and Little Mix took to the paparazzi-filled red carpet in insanely fierce looks. Here’s every single celebrity moment from the star-studded night. 17 of the most outrageous Brits outfits in history What will the stars be wearing to the Oscars 2017? We look into our style crystal ball
The Grammys may have come and gone Stateside, but across the pond, it’s all about the Brit Awards. Wednesday evening, the biggest stars in British music (plus a few Americans, for good measure) gathered together in London to celebrate the year in songs and wear fancy designer threads. From Adele in a low-cut red (!) gown to Rihanna’s springy pastel purple slip dress, see what the hottest celebs wore to the 2016 Brit Awards.
The Brit Awards always comes with a side serving of off-the-wall fashion. Unlike film and television awards ceremonies, celebrities who attend events such as the Brits have a habit of going all-out with their outfits and pushing the boundaries - let’s see if this year is the same.

Madonna wears a Giorgio Armani cape at the Brit Awards. Or you can dance, channeling Madonna’s Brit Awards performance, and fall flat. Following Madonna’s epic spill while wearing a Giorgio Armani cape over her matador costume, the singer blamed its weight: ”I was told to tie my cape and start much further back and I had to walk further, and everyone was worried my cape would slide off, so they tied it really tight around my neck,” she said on The Jonathan Ross Show (a late night British talk show). Mr. Armani fired back on Tuesday, telling the AP, “Madonna, as we know, is very difficult. This cape had a hook and she wanted a tie, and she wasn’t able to open it with her hands.
The BRIT Awards is the United Kingdom's version of the Grammys and just as the American red carpet features the best in style, the British ceremony similarly brought out stars clad in fashion-forward designer duds. There were those that went for more sexy outfits such as Karlie Kloss in a fresh Tom Ford gown, her BFF Taylor Swift in Roberto Cavalli Atelier, and Kim Kardashian in a J. Mendel jumpsuit and then others in more laidback looks like Cara Delevingne in '70s inspired Saint Laurent, Janelle Monae in a fabulous hat, and Grace Chatto in a chic Coach cape ensemble. Even if these stars didn't go home with an award, they're style winners in our book.
