Music bigwigs from all corners of the globe don their classiest attire at the Brit Awards in the O2 Arena. And the best and the brightest of them all shone in black.
Taylor Swift led the pack in a jaw-dropping black Elie Saab number. The pop-country singer made sure to show she's all grown up in the sexy gown with a gold belt and sheer accents. Her attire surely caught the attention of the crowd-not to mention ex-boyfriend Harry Styles, who is also in attendance.
The One Direction heartthrob walked the red carpet with his bandmates, all looking dapper in complementing black and white attire. The Brit group took to the stage in a spirited performance of "One Way or Another", while Swift wowed the crowd with her song "I Knew You Were Trouble".
Jessie J looked to be the star of the night in a Versace black gown with a plunging neckline and sparkling gold belt. Oozing with confidence and charisma, the Price Tag singer worked the red carpet well even in a similar gown as Swift.
Another celebrity in a similar dress is former Pussycat Dolls member Ashley Roberts who showed off her impressive physique in a black leotard and long mesh skirt. She topped off her look with red lip and a messy up-do.
Lana Del Rey is as beautiful as ever, although the indie favorite kept it casual in a black Chanel shirt dress. The crooner wasn't shy about indulging in a little PDA in front of the photographers with her beau, Barrie-James O'Neill of the band Kassidy.
Emeli Sandé, Rebecca Ferguson and Jessie Ware kept the trend of the night alive in black clothing-from simple dresses to thigh-high slits and midriffs.
