The 2013 Brit Awards happened yesterday and attracted a bunch of big stars–Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake… uh… Lana Del Rey? She’s famous for the internet.
Well, here are the attendees we recognized, along with a few we didn’t (in strikingly hideous dresses).
Also, when will the clodhopper platform go away?
Corinne Bailey Rae would look really nice if this were an awards luncheon–we like her thin belt and subtle makeup, we’re not opposed to the wrinkled material–but she looks way underdressed in context.
This one pains us. Gemma Arterton is such a babe (and her hair is beautiful!) but this dress is really unflattering. That wide horizontal line hits at exactly the wrong place, the cardigan fit is rumpled and… who chose green ankle straps for this?
Also, maybe we’re just opposed to red sequins.
This is Stooshe. They did a real bummer of a “Waterfalls” cover.
Models always show up at awards shows being like, “I’m ten feet tall and seven of them is legs.” So they just wear a micro-mini and high heels and think they don’t have to try (see every Victoria’s Secret event red carpet ever). Jordan Dunn, despite her impressive good looks, disappoints.
This is what people are calling Taylor Swift’s “revenge dress,” we guess because this awards show is on ex-boyfriend Harry Styles‘ home turf and Taylor Swift can turn fucking anything into a sales angle. We like her makeup, but the hair is cheesy and the dress is dumb.
And oh god, those shoes. Those shoes are the worst.
But we do not like her tinfoil dress.
Let’s have this stuck in our heads for hours now:
