BRITs 2022: Red Carpet Fashion Affair That Turned Heads

The BRITs 2022 were one of the most memorable, astonishing, and extravagant events held this year so far that lauded talent and fashion. The glamorous red carpet fashion affair had all eyes drawn to the stunning looks donned by the stars of the night. It was great to see so many well-deserved wins, and these accolades are impressive, but what makes an awards ceremony even more exciting? Yes, you are right- the alluring fashion looks adorning the evening like a golden star.

The biggest names in music from around the world — including Adele, KSI, Ed Sheeran, Olivia Rodrigo, Joy Crookes, Anne-Marie, and many more — arrived at O2 Arena London to attend BRITs 2022 ceremony.

The stylish attendees finally stepped out on the red carpet, bringing the glitz and glamour with their top-tier fashion looks for the night, leaving behind all the virtual celebrations, awkward TikTok dances, and Zoom dressing sessions from the past year. Since the BRITs are renowned for their glitzy gowns and dramatic looks, the stars have indeed donned the finest evening attires the fashion world has to offer.

This year was no exception, as BRITs 2022 promised to be dramatic, custom-tailored, a little vintage, and styled with slight ’90s flair. This award night certainly provided a glimpse into the 2022 fashion trends- whether it’s sequins, cut-outs, dramatic silhouettes, or black remains the color of elegance, all coupled with dramatic makeup and bold accessories to accentuate the looks.

We bring you the most elegant, sophisticated looks to the hottest and boldest styles from the red carpet and the Brit award ceremony.

Joy Crookes

As Joy Crookes strode the BRITs 2022 red carpet, it was as if a golden goddess just descended from the skies, glistening and bursting with golden splendor and looking magnificent. She put a lot of effort and worked tirelessly on this outfit, and she collaborated with stylist Natalie Roar and custom designer Kate Walker Studio, resulting in an exquisite, breathtaking, and elegant ornate golden delicate ensemble that set her apart from the rest of the BRITs 2022 attendees on the red carpet.

Drawing strong inspiration from South Asian culture and Bollywood fashion, Joy donned a beaded top with a bejewelled bralette top coupled with an asymmetrical skirt and an embellished hooded long cape sweeping the floor. Her stylish golden heels coordinated with shimmery makeup, and she completed her look with chains with gold details and gold finger cuffs adorning her hands.

Adele

Adele swept the night with her outstanding performance, consecutive wins, and breathtaking fashion affair. The star started the night in a classic black, old-school glamour look with nude nails and her hair swept off her shoulders. She donned a gorgeous long-sleeved long-length Armani Privé gown at BRITs 2022, made of black velvet and featured a delicate plunging sweetheart neckline, which wrapped around her shoulders and then fell down her back into a train that swept along behind her. 

For the award ceremony (and as the finale ensemble for the evening), Adele opted for a black tuxedo jacket-inspired and off-the-shoulder mini dress by Marianna Senchina and paired it with double hoop danging earrings and nude makeup.
