2014 BRIT Awards Fashion: the Bad, the Bad, and the Beyoncé

Something is rotten in England. Hot on the heels of the always-amazing London Fashion Week, the BRIT Awards happened, wherein hundreds of songsters turned out to accept Britain's equivalent of a Grammy. Maybe it was something in the water, but the fashion was particularly painful this year. Even the pure light of Beyoncé shining down upon us, refracted by the sequins of her mermaid-green dress, could barely save us from the sight of Boy George's bloody eye and way too much visible underwear.

Gross. Boy George also took to Twitter afterward to announce that everyone at the BRIT Awards was in the bathroom snorting coke.

This look is a claustrophobe’s nightmare: a sequined turtleneck dress, heavy bangs, and too much spray tan make it hard to breathe.
