Best & Worst Dressed The Brit Awards
The Good: Like Nigella Lawson-meets-Bond Girl, Berenice Marlohe looked resplendent in a silver Donna Karan Atelier gown. It flatters her curves and looks just edgy enough.

The Wild Card: Paloma Faith wore her favourite designer Dolce & Gabbana, and while, yes, she looks crazy, we kind of love this look as it doesn't pretend to be anything other than barmy.

The Good (just): Corinne Bailey Rae kept with her quirky and not-overtly-sexy sense of style in this Miu-Miu blush pink metallic gown. A nice, bold necklace might have been nice though.

The Great: Taylor Swift looks elegant, sexy and not an ounce 'cutesy' in this Elie Saab gown. We tend to be bored by her looks on the red carpet, but this is a triumph. Take that Harry.
Best & Worst Dressed The Brit Awards
The Good (just): Supermodel Jourdan Dunn works Balmain like only someone who's paid to wear clothes for a living can. We're inclined to think this looks a bit short, though. Thoughts?

The Worst: This shapeless retro Stella McCartney does not work for us. The weird bunching at the back makes it look like she's stood in front of a fierce wind machine, and Katherine Jenkin's helmet hair is too stiff.

The Bad: Lana Del Rey (seen here with her boyfriend Barrie James O'Neill) really dressed up for the occasion. Not.

The Bad: We like that Rita Ora tried to go glam (as she looks amazing when she pulls it off) but this Ulyana Sergeenko gown is a fail. It's way too long and a bad colour on her. The Perspex Gucci clutch is cool, though.

The Bad: Gemma Arterton looks like a member of a Christmas carol troupe in this Jonathan Saunders twin-set. Shall we all agree that twin-sets and red carpets should probably never meet?

The Brit Awards is a brash, fun awards ceremony and it dubs itself 'UK music's biggest night of the year'. 

Let's rip ourselves away from the fact that Taylor Swift performed in front of Harry Styles in what looked like a wedding dress for just one second to survey the gorgeous looks and dramatic fails on the red carpet.
