The Grammys are so last week.
Across the pond, some of music's biggest stars stormed the red carpet on Wednesday (February 20) for the 2019 BRIT Awards in London. Naturally, style icons like Dua Lipa and Little Mix pushed the envelope in trendy gowns, while fellow nominees Shawn Mendes and Khalid got all suited up in princely tuxes. See 14 of the best and boldest looks below.

The Canadian crooner sadly didn't recreate his ab-tastic Calvin Klein ad on the carpet — instead, Shawn opted for a muted gray suit for his first-ever BRITs appearance.

If Dua Lipa's voluminous gown was the showstopper of last year, then the Years & Years frontman may take that honor this year, thanks to his fun feathered cape that's simply too cool to top.
