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.
I wish I could say, “The visible underwear trend stops here!” but we both know that would be a terrible lie. This is just the tip of the iceberg.
When life hands you a skintight, sheer, Toxic-era bodysuit and suggests that you pair it with frosted lavender lipstick, YOU SAY NO.
PVC on the red carpet? Heavens to Queen Elizabeth.
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.
OKAY, LORDE, WE GET IT, UR GOTH.
Here we have Rapunzel after a few dirty vodka martinis.
There are high-low hemlines, then there are way-too-high-way-too-low hemlines.
Clearly a dropout of the Helena Bonham Carter school of witchy fashion.
This look is just so… bad prom decisions.
What is happening with this neckline? Actually, what isn’t happening with this neckline?
This wrinkly little romper just wants to go home.
For the record, she’s “Katy-Patra” in this shot.
…and everything’s okay again.
