Hide your eyes, fashion-watchers! We've picked the worst Brit Awards red-carpet outfits from the past decade - and there's some real shockers present.
Worst Dressed Brit Awards of all time
'Pleather' and 'bubblegum blue': three words that should NEVER appear in the same sentence. Yes Denise, this corseted monstrosity might suck you in in all the right places, but the spray-on Star Trek-circa-1973 look is SO wrong. (1998)
"I'll tell you what I want, what I really really want..."
For the Spice Girls to stop polluting my eyes with these outfits, thanks. If Victoria Beckham had a grave, she'd be spinning in it looking at this picture. And is it just us or does Mel C seem to be wearing a radioactivity warning? (1998)
Times were hard in 1998 and it was typical of those tight-fisted Brits organisers to avoid shelling out for repairs to the venue's roof. Luckily though, Natalie and Shaznay of All Saints came well prepared for sudden downpours and freak blizzards in their hiking gear. (1998)
At the Brits in 1999, Billie Piper finally revealed her superhero secret identity: Spabba - spiderwoman with the vocal talents of Abba. (1999)
Once upon a time dear readers, in the far distant past, people used to wear trousers under knee-length dresses. I know! It's so silly isn't it? This trend went so far that high street stores even made trousers with skirts attached! Here, Caprice demonstrates why most of the nation is praying that this long-forgotten look stays at the back of the wardrobe in the future. (1999)
Kelly Brook doesn't realise that less is only more when it applies to make-up and not when it applies to hemlines or necklines. (1999)
'Let's all meet up in the year 2000!'
Or maybe NOT, if we'd known that Denise van Outen was planning to pull this Flintstones-inspired number out of her closet. (2000)
Dip-dye hair? Check. Hot pink tiger print trousers? Check. White leather crop top? Check. Staple gun? Check. Caprice gets ready to wow the audience at the Brits. (2000)
Can you imagine how many bottles of talc it took to get Vorders into and out of this leather contraption? Us neither. (2000)
Sara Cox made her dress out of a packet of Refreshers. Sadly, when she tried to eat it later in the night, it didn't taste as good as it looked. (2000)
Caprice failed to fill out the hypothermia risk assessment form once again. Maybe it was the heat of embarrassment keeping her warm. (2001)
We can't quite put our finger on what's gone wrong with this outfit. It's not so much the coat, which, although it's very 'of its time', isn't dreadful. We think it might be the fishnets. Fishnets should only be seen on starlets under the age of 20, or Madonna. (2001)
Unfortunately, one of the risks of wearing yellow sunglasses is that it distorts your view of certain colours. At least, we think that must have been the reason for Kelis's mismatched get-up. (2001)
It's good to invest in a bikini wax before you take to the red carpet: a lesson Sonique would have been wise to learn back in 2001.
Poor Anastacia. When you're so hairy that your stylist decides it's better to embrace the fur and try to disguise it as a jacket, you know it's time to put down the microphone and head for the laser treatment. (2002)
It's good to get ahead of the fashion pack but sometimes it can go too far. Eight years too far for Anna Friel who was rocking the 'boyfriend jean' and 'underwear as outerwear' trends way before she should have been. (2002)
Words have failed us. The outfits on Heidi, Keisha and Mutya actually offend our eyes. Sack the stylist. (2002)
At the best of times, white lace is a hard look to pull off. There was a chance, what with Heidi Klum being a supermodel and all, that it might work. Sadly it was not to be. We blame the boots. (2002)
Back in 2002, Dannii 'arctic fox' Minogue turned up wearing her mum's net curtains and a strange one-sided daisy-chain earring. (2002)
Dido wins the unenviable accolade of 'Outfit Most Likely To Induce Utter Boredom' for her sky-blue leather suit with string hanging off it. (2002)
Who gave Daryl Hannah an invite to music awards? She's an actress. A very good actress for sure, as proved by a genuine-looking smile on her face whilst wearing this disgusting transparent top and skirt combo with a brown leather belt. (2002)
Davina normally wears black. Here she shows us why that is. (2002)
Misteeq hadn't had time to change out of their bikinis after a swimming lesson at the local pool. (2002)
Poor Pink. She came to London for an award ceremony and got attacked on her way in by a pesky teenager with a spray can. (2003)
It's those Sugababes again, and this time Mutya forgot she was only supposed to dress up as Flash Gordon in private, Heidi forgot her bra and Keisha forgot she was in Britain in February. (2003)
Straitjackets don't belong on the red carpet, Mel C! (2003)
Dear God, Beverley Knight commits fashion suicide by literally tying a belt around her neck. (2003)
Satin cargo pants, long swishing fringe hanging from the underboob region, stray strap - what is there to like about Trisha's outfit? (2003)
Myleene, when you woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and got dressed, did you not spot that you were missing something? A shirt perhaps? (2004)
Another victim of the 'less is more' misunderstanding. (2004)
Is it a bomber jacket? Ski-wear? Or perhaps a shortened smoking jacket à la Hugh Hefner. Whatever it is that Shania Twain is wearing, it's fugly. (2004)
It's February, and Christmas is long over but Cat Deeley is obviously determined to keep the yuletide spirit alive in this bizarre embellished number which places her firmly at the top of the (crimbo) tree. (2004)
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No. It's MTV presenter Emma Griffiths who seems to have sprouted big pink wings. (2004)
Deary me, some of you may not remember squeaky clean Blue Peter presenter Katy Hill. But she SHOULD be remembered, if only for her fashion faux pas at the Brits in 2004. That scraggy, lacy dress makes her look as if she's being haunted by Caspar the friendly ghost.
What to say about this effort from Kerry Katona? 'Urgh', 'meh', bleh' and 'ick', don't quite cover it... No. We're stuck. (2004)
We were wondering when Katie Price would turn up. She did quite well to stay off the list until 2005, but here she finally makes an appearance wearing a figure-enhancing dress. And in case you're wondering, by 'figure-enhancing' we mean breast-enlarging, and by 'dress' we mean T-shirt. (2005)
Nicki Chapman tells the world she's happy to be at the Brit Awards through the medium of 'sleeve semaphore'. (2005)
Saccharine-sweet to the point of feeling a bit sick when we look at it, Katherine Jenkins' pink gown clashes with the red carpet. (2005)
From a distance, this outfit Minnie's wearing doesn't look too bad, right? Get up close however, and it's a whole different fashion story. She's wearing a turquoise bra - it's sticking out of the neck of her top - and there's a white lace trim on the shoulders which just looks plain wrong. (2005)
Least she wasn't wearing a fake dead swan draped around her neck, eh? (1998)
Soon to be relegated to the bargain bins at motorway service stations, B*Witched weren't just the unfortunate victims of poor song choice, their stylist was having a right old laugh at their expense. (1999)
Joss Stone's mum was her manager until 2004 and something tells us once she was out from under that watchful eye, Joss might have embarked upon an 'experimental' fashion phase. We've all been there. Difference is, 99 per cent of people's bad choices only appear at the school disco, and not on the red carpet.
The Eastenders actress had obviously raided her character's wardrobe to find this skimpy little négligée ... (2006)
Satin trousers should be banned from the red carpet. Even if you are the Bionic Woman. (2006)
After a glass or two of champagne, Carol could be found on Hampstead Heath scaring all the dog walkers in her bright red mac.
Perhaps Debbie was trying to recapture the glory days of her misspent youth as a punk popstrel in this get up. (2006)
Oh, dear. Joss gets it really wrong in this bum-skimming dress that looks as if her cat threw up all over it... after eating multicoloured lollipops. (2007)
Was Katy Perry sponsored by Whiskers last year? (2009)
"Get out of my way, non-believers! I am to no longer be known by my given name of Pixie. Henceforth you will now address me as 'Merlin'... Now where did I put my wand?" (2009)
Singing is something that Katie Melua excels at. Dressing herself for a red carpet situation is not. (2010)
We always thought that Abbey Clancy was the kind of girl that could wear a too-tight, sparkling, camouflage, vest top and get away with it. Turns out she can't. (2010)
Now, we know the unfortunate splatters of rain can't be helped but we would have thought Edith Bowman would have done everything within her power to prevent herself being seen on the red carpet, amongst A-listers, in this blue sack and clashing lace tights. (2010)
Looking at this picture, you could be forgiven for thinking it was taken back in the nineties. Alas, it's not and even in 2011 Caprice is yet to learn the importance of taste, class and style. There's always this year - invite-depending, of course. (2011)
Ill-fitting, gold, velvet jackets are the sort of thing dreams are made of. And by dreams, we mean nightmares. We expected more from the lovely Alan Carr. (2011)
While Sara Cox's asymmetrical dress is actually rather pretty, the awkward, baggy fit lets the radio DJ down on the red carpet. (2012)
Dame Kelly Holmes battled injuries and clinical depression to become the first British Olympian to win a double gold medal. Since retiring from athletics, Holmes has set up 'On Camp with Kelly' athletics camps which help train junior athletes and the DKH Legacy Trust, to inspire disadvantaged young people.
Eek! Lloyd's glitz-tastic jumpsuit and clashing heels look like they're from a galaxy we don't want to visit anytime soon. Oh dear. (2012)
We're afraid to say Emma Bunton's sheer red lacy number looks cheap, not chic. Sorry Emma! (2012)
X Factor 2011 winners Little Mix are still getting their red carpet footing, and haven't yet learned the power of subtlety. Clearly. (2012)
