Pretty pastels and frou-frou frocks rule as stars hold Time’s Up roses at Brits

Summer appeared to be the main inspiration for stars on the red carpet at the Brit Awards, with plenty of pastel colours and ruffled gowns in play.

In addition to the apparent fashion theme, each star was seen carrying a white rose as they arrived at London’s O2 Arena in support of victims of sexual harassment and assault.

Nominees and guests at the ceremony followed the lead set at the Grammys by wearing white rose pins and holding up the flowers to show support for Time’s Up, the movement launched in the wake of the entertainment industry’s sexual assault scandal.

The move comes days after attendees at the Baftas swapped their usual colourful gowns for black dresses to acknowledge the initiative.

But at the Brits, there was plenty of colour on the red carpet.

Rita Ora dazzled in an ostentatious feathered gown with a layered skirt in a pale blue hue that darkened at the bottom of the skirt, while TV presenter Holly Willoughby nodded at the trend with a short white tuxedo-style dress with a feathered hemline.

American singer Camila Cabello went for a pale blue sheer gown with a ruffled detail over her chest and down the sides of the garment.

In a similar style to Ora was five-time nominee Dua Lipa, who rocked a candy floss-inspired full pink dress with an asymmetric hemline.

Singer Pixie Lott chose a more streamlined look with a slinky lilac gown with spaghetti straps complete with a thigh-high split up the skirt, a style mimicked by model Abbey Clancy, whose nightgown-inspired cream dress no doubt turned heads.
