The BRIT Awards red carpet at London's O2 arena welcomed the biggest names in international and British music last night, as stars flocked to celebrate the British music industry. Celebrities from the world of entertainment and fashion joined this year's major hit makers. 

Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora set the glamour bar high, both in floor length gowns with plunging necklines. Ora dazzled in shimmering gold and Goulding opted for sheer white. Karlie Kloss, fresh from her fundraising success at the Worlds First Fabulous Fund Fair, also chose a full length white dress, in a close fitting column silhouette with bold black trimmed cut-out neck line that exposed her shoulders.

Paloma Faith, who is always one to watch in the style stakes, with her unique burlesque-esque flair, didn't disappoint in a black strapless, full-skirted gown intricately covered in mesh and red beading. Taylor Swift also opted for red embellishment in a sleek black fitted dress emblazoned with a sweeping dragon motif on the back, in a possible nod to the recent Chinese New Year.

Kloss's fashion colleague, who recently shared the London Fashion Week runway, Cara Delevingne, chose a more dressed down rock look in slim fitted black pants and a black and red shirt. Her look was topped with a hat, positioned just-so, that could have been borrowed from her ex-beau Harry Styles' wardrobe. Janelle Monae chose a similar look in a velvet pant-suit. FKA Twiggs took her usual fashion risk and it paid off, as she styled a one-of-a-kind ensemble that was barey there on top with a skirt trouser combo on the bottom. 

The gents looked dapper, with all eyes on Sam Smith, fresh from his Grammys triumph, opting for a very Britsh royal blue suit, and Ed Sheeran keept it classic in a classic black suit. Orlando Bloom took a fashion risk with a buttoned up denim shirt worn under a tailored black suit jacked and black trousers.
