Best & worst: BRIT Awards
THE MEH: Daisy Lowe is such a babe, but the butt knit-work on this Sibling dress is bordering on something you'd see on the late great site Regretsy. Don't know what Regretsy was? Google it. RIP.

THE GREAT: Danni Minogue won the style sibling rivalry tonight - I adore the cut of her top and dang can girl can rock a red lip.

THE I'M-JUST-NOT-SURE: On the one hand, the five-year-old in me that once held Cinderella as my ultimate style icon is loving Ellie Goulding's Vivienne Westwood dress; but the other - probably more rational - part of me thinks this looks like an out-take from the montage in 27 Dresses when Katherine Heigl tries on all the horrend' bridesmaid dresses her evil bride friends have forced her to wear.

THE GREAT: It's dresses like these that remind us all that sometimes pure red is the best bet. Gorgeous Aussie rapper Iggy Azalea, 23, looks statuesque in this Elie Saab gown (I'm also loving seeing an Elie Saab dress that's totally free of bedazzling). PS: Did you know her real name is Amethyst? I'd have opted for the stage name too.

THE BAD: Oh wow. There are no words. This Julien Macdonald (my least favourite designer in the world) jumpsuit looks like it was raided from J-Lo's stage closet. And Jessie J's weave is one of the worst I've ever seen. And those lilac lips? It's like the girl from The Ring all grown up.

THE GOOD: Lily Allen has upped her style game recently and is taking risks that pay off. Sure, the yellow hair and this WilliamVintage sequin gown are not for everyone, but she's having fun and I love it. Jessie J take note: lilac belongs on your fingertips not your face.

THE BEST CONTENDER: Dear Rita Ora, Please wear yellow every day for the rest of your life. Kind Regards, A Person In NZ You've Never Heard Of. The singer looks full-on bombshell in this Prada gown and yet the unusual yellow and green tones and the fun chunky jewels mean the gown is still very 'her'. Oh, and I think this is the best her hair has ever looked. What. A. Babe.

THE MEH: Okay, okay, Rosie Huntington Whiteley looks ferociously stunning here, yes. But I think that boils down to a great hair and makeup artist and phenomenal genes - I don't think this Saint Laurent dress is working (I MISS YVES!). Yes, the way the waist nips in suits her shape perfectly, but those assymetrical shoulders look very Klingon, and I intensely dislike the marriage of twee (that little bow) and racy (the red zebra print).

THE MEH: I do love the cut of this William Wilde dress, yes even the giant bow (which would usually be my worst nightmare), but come on Kyles, it's latex. Latex is a material with some seriously creepy connotations - do you think Miss Minogue squeaks while she walks?

THE BAD: Nicole Scherzinger could basically wear jeans and a T-shirt and look stunning, but this bondage-inspired top is making me itchy just looking at it.

THE BAD: Oh lovely Myleene Klass, macrame, what's going on? Have you just popped back from the beach? This is like Missoni-meets-Coco-Austin. PS: I can see your pants.

THE GREAT: Pixie Lott, 23, looks stunning in a simple DKNY dress. Her hair and makeup is perfect, I love those yellow gold earrings and the black nails are a nice contrast.

THE BLING: Beyonce didn't walk down the red carpet, but did wear a very red-carpet ready Vrettos Vrettakos couture gown on stage (he's the man behind her royal blue on-stage catsuit). The dress is gorgeous, yes, but I am kind of missing her bob. Thoughts?

THE ARCHETYPAL: Well there's no denying Lorde has a very well-established sense of personal style, but as far as her long-sleeved black gowns go, this Tom Ford is my favourite. Why? Because it's basically a gothic-chic antique mirror ball, and what's not to love about that?

The British equivalent of the Grammy Awards is one of our favourite red carpets of the year. Why? Because the Brits at the Brits take risks.

Our girl Lorde's there, heaps of British music royalty have turned up as has Beyonce - follow the red carpet live in our gallery above.
