See all the best moments from The Brit Awards 2016...
The Brit Awards 2016 is set to be a memorable one with one of the most star-studded red carpets and shows in the event’s 34-year history – and we’ve rounded up all of the best moments from the evening.
As the biggest night of year on the British music scene, the great and the good of music, fashion and TV headed to the O2 to celebrate all the very best in Brit musical talent.
Boasting some of the biggest artists in the music industry, with Justin Bieber, Rihanna and Adele all in attendance, Drake even made an appearance to perform his and Rihanna’s new duet, Work.
But before it all gets underway, why not re-live some of the more riotous moments from the BRITs 34-year history in our round up of the best ever OMG moments from the BRIT Awards over the years.
As awards ceremonies go, the BRIT Awards is one that never disappoints fashion wise, either.
First to hit the red carpet was Tallia Storm who arrived in a Balmain X H&M number with its unmistakable signature detailing.
Geri Horner (nee Halliwell) arrived on the red carpet in a leopard print ensemble, telling Marie Claire that her daughter picked it out for her. Awww…
Meanwhile, Adele and Rihanna both stole the show in their gorgeous gowns. Rihanna opted for a tiered Giorgio Armani Privé gown, whilst Adele – who performed later in the evening – took to the red carpet in a burgundy dress with plenty of ruffles and the most divine matching lipstick (want!)
