BRITs 2019 red carpet: Stars arrive at awards show in London

The hottest stars in music headed to London‘s 02 arena in North Greenwich on Wednesday night in celebration of the 2019 BRIT Awards

The evening, hosted by Jack Whitehall for the second year in a row, sees P!nk, 39, being honoured for her career with the Outstanding Contribution To Music prize.   

Dua Lipa, 23, was leading the red carpet arrivals as the glittering ceremony kicked off in style, turning heads in a bright fuchsia frock as she joined the likes of Lily Allen and Maya Jama. 

The singer looked sensational in her eye-catching dress, which featured an entirely sheer, black lace bodice with an extreme plunging neckline.

Dua added some quirky accessories including emerald rings and a dazzling silver manicure to match her diamond necklace. 

The New Rules hitmaker has the most nods out of all the BRIT nominees for the second consecutive year after receiving five in 2018.

Last year saw the pop princess take home two prizes; British Female and British Breakthrough Artist.

This year, she’s been nominated four times; in the British Single category for her hits IDGAF and One Kiss and in the British Video section, also for the same songs. 

Lily Allen was also making a strong impression on the red carpet, showing off a new Gothic inspired hairstyle as she descended upon the O2.

She embraced a bohemian vibe in a floaty, floral print dress and completed her look with a smoky eye and some serious attitude.

Maya Jama was a vision in a beige dress with voluminous tulle detailing, exuding elegance as she made her way into the venue.

Also lighting up the red carpet was Jess Glynne, who ditched her usual street style in favour of old school glamour in a figure-hugging silk gown.

Hugh Jackman was also one of the first stars to walk the red carpet, flashing a big grin and wave as he prepared for his big opening number. 

The evening will kick off with a special performance from Hollywood star Hugh in celebration of The Greatest Showman.

Jack Whitehall said of hosting the ceremony once again, saying, ‘What am I looking forward to most about hosting the BRITs? 

‘I know what it is now, I know the game, you need to be able to think on your feet, throw a few punches, and embrace the chaos. 

‘That’s what you need to do – embrace the chaos, not fight it.’

The BRIT Awards is one of our favourite nights of the year, and kicking off the glamour this time around is BBC Radio 1 host Clara Amfo.

She rocked the red carpet in an all-over camo print embellished dress, which is of course by Ashish. Nobody does sequins quite like the designer, so it was never going to be anybody else!

It’s available to buy now at MATCHESFASHION.COM, so click (right) if you want to copy Clara. We’ve added her pretty Sophia Webster heels into the edit below as well in case you really feel like splashing the cash.

We love the statement flared sleeves and high neck on this design, but if you want to see some similar options, we’ve tracked down dresses ranging from the Topshop x Halpern collection right up to Dundas and Balmain.
