The BRIT Awards red carpet was awash with glamour as celebrities turned out in force for the biggest night in British music.
But not everyone hit the right note when it came to their fashion choices, as these seriously questionable outfits show.
Singer Tallia Storm and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts both stepped out in dramatically slashed ensembles that left nothing to the imagination as they joined stars for the ceremony at The O2 in London on Tuesday night. at The O2 in London on Tuesday night.
Fellow musician Raye also opted for an eye-popping gown and walked the red carpet in an orange number that was tied together down the side.
Meanwhile Griff showcased her unique sense of style in a black and white checkerboard gown that swamped her frame.
Men on the red carpet were just as guilty of crimes against fashion, with Leigh Francis and musicians Meekz and Nick Gale turning heads for the wrong reasons.
Pert posterior: Tallia Storm left very little to the imagination in her black outfit from Mugler which she teamed with black and silver heels and toted a white bag
Cut a fine figure like Ashley wearing Mônot
When the likes of Kate Hudson, Stella Maxwell, Justine Skye and Valentina Zenere all wear the same dress, you know it’s something special.
So it’s no wonder Ashley Roberts made it her statement look too when she attended the BRIT Awards 2022.
The dress in question is by Lebanese designer Eli Mizrahi for his label Monot. Hailing from the Autumn/Winter 2021 collection, the cutout maxi dress is designed with trendy cut out detailing and a sexy thigh split.
Mizrahi once said, “I feel like a lot of my pieces in the collection will give you that attitude”, and with this dress, it does just that.
Whilst we mere mortals can’t shop Ashley’s exact dress, you can recreate her jaw-dropping look in a dress from the carousel that includes Asos, Bec + Bridge and Nasty Gal.

Singer Griff opted for a very daring oversized checked dress in blush pink and black, which she paired with chnky boots, but the look did not pay off.
Becky Hill also failed to impress in a green micro dressed with puffy sleeves that was covered in sequin and left very little to the imagination.
Singer songwriter Joy Crookes flashed some mid-rift in a daring gown with a bedazzled cape and shiny stilettos for the glitzy event.
However, her golden cape and train, which were covered in gems and gold leaves were more ‘Riding Hood’ than red carpet.

Joining Adele and Ed with four nominations are Little Simz and Dave, who along with Sam Fender, will battle it out for the inaugural Artist of the Year award at the ceremony which airs at 8pm on ITV and will be hosted by Mo Gilligan for the first time.
The ceremony, in association with Mastercard, sees the most female artists nominated in over a decade, however, they are still outnumbered three to two by male nominees.
It comes after The Brit Awards sparked controversy after scrapping male and female categories and switching to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history, causing naysayers to brand the event ‘woke’.
Sam Fender, Central Cee, David Guetta are up for three awards on the night, while Doja Cat, Olivia Rodrigo, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X are each nominated for two prizes and will go up against Taylor Swift for International Artist of the Year award.

Elsewhere, there are plenty of artist who’ve been double nominated for the 2022 ceremony including Becky Hill, Coldplay, Dua Lipa, Glass Animals, Griff, Joel Corry, Joy Crookes and KSI.
Organisers divided opinion last year with some outraged by the decision to switch to gender-neutral gongs for the first time in its history.
Bosses claimed the move was in a bid ‘to be as inclusive and as relevant as possible’ and allowed people to enter who do not identify as a man or woman.
But fans blasted the change as ‘woke drivel’, with many calling for a boycott.
Meanwhile, the song of the year prize will recognise the featured artists, rather than just the lead artists or named collaborators.
The 2022 ceremony will also feature four new awards, alternative/rock act; hip hop/grime/rap act; dance act and pop/R’n’B act.
These four new genre awards were up for a public vote on the Tik Tok app, as for the first time in the ceremony’s 45-year history, fans got to decide the outcome. The vote closed at 6pm GMT Thursday February 3, with users able to cast up to ten votes per category, per day.
The changes come after singer Sam Smith – who identifies as non-binary – put organisers under pressure to scrap male and female categories earlier this year.
Wednesday’s ceremony will see Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Adele, Dave, Little Simz, and this year’s Rising Star award winner, Holly Humberstone, take to the stage for performances.
Doja Cat had also been on the lineup, but was forced to pull out after several members of her crew tested positive for Covid.
She tweeted last week: ‘Unfortunately, due to cases of COVID within my crew, I will no longer be performing at the Brits. ‘It’s simply not safe for us to continue to rehearse together and put each other in harm’s way. I can’t wait to perform for my UK fans as soon as I can. Take care of yourselves.’
The rap star – who received nods for International Artist Of The Year and Best International Song for her SZA collaboration Kiss Me More – herself tested positive for the virus in December.
