It's the day after the night before and we're diving into the best of the red-carpet looks from The BRIT Awards 2022.
In a ceremony that took place in a sold-out O2 arena, the 42nd BRIT Awards were graced by performances from the likes of Ed Sheeran, Adele and Dave (read Notion’s highlights here). Before the partying had begun, this year’s red-carpet did not disappoint. Themes from the evening: cut-out dresses, graphic eyeliner and a general refusal to dress in accordance with British winter. We round-up our favourite fashion choices from 2022’s awards.
A stand-out of this year’s red-carpet, it seems fitting to start this list with Maya Jama’s Mônot look. Styled by Kyle De’Volle, according to Maya’s Instagram “Cher was the inspo” and the reference to the singer’s iconic Oscar’s dress struck a perfect chord. The look is accessorised with Mach & Mach mules, Bvlgari jewels, and of course her new engagement ring.
Notion’s fave and recent feature star Amelia Dimoldenberg stunned in this neon-strobe effect minidress. Chloe Griffin styled the Chicken Shop Date creator in a dress by The Attico and Kurt Geiger shoes. Sleek hair and silver accessories tie the look together as Amelia continues her 90s style references. We love.
Tik-Tok makeup artist Abby Roberts showed us that two trends really are better than one: going for a graphic liner alongside a cut-out black dress. The chunky cross chain is reminiscent of Madonna’s “Like a Virgin” styling, and Abby’s pink hair lightens an otherwise gothic look. She could be a cast member of 90s film The Craft and we’re here for it.
Although the Glass Animals boys may have missed out on a couple of BRIT wins this year, wearing these Gucci knitwear fits must’ve softened the blow. The tonal coordination is understated but works, and the band demonstrate that red-carpet style doesn’t always have to entail a suit.
Double nominee Griff stood out on the red-carpet styled by Kamran Rajput in this oversized checkerboard dress. The details made this styling one of our favourites: the pearl straps and mirrored checkered hairstyle showing that sometimes, more is more. Griff’s dress was designed by recent CSM-graduate Anthon Raimund – someone I’m sure we’ll be seeing more of on red-carpets in the future.
International Song of the Year winner Olivia Rodrigo embraced the BRIT Award statue itself with a full-length mermaid style silver dress.
For our personal favourite outfit from the evening, Notion 90 cover star Joy Crookes, in her words, “came dressed like an award in case I don’t take any home tonight”. The look, complete with gorgeous henna, is red-carpet styling done right. Joy’s clothing was designed by Natalie Roar and Kate Walker.
Last but by no means least: the artist who swept the 2022 BRIT’s new genderless categories. Adele won three awards, including the prestigious Mastercard Album of the Year for the third time: and her classic Hollywood glamour exudes grace. She looks like royalty, and indeed she was queen of the evening.
