Leigh-Anne Pinnock & Munya Chawawa

This year’s MOBO hosts came armed with more than one standout outfit for hosting duties, but it was Leigh-Anne’s show-stopping leather dress and Munya’s suave suit that really set the tone for the fashion-forward event.

Kaz Kamwi

Life after Love Island appears to be serving 2021 finalist Kaz Kamwi well, as the reality star appeared at the ceremony in a dress that can only be described as “luxury.” Between the high-leg slit and regal gloved sleeves, Kaz’s MOBO debut was a knock-out.

Stefflon Don

Stefflon Don seized her red carpet moment with a ‘simple-at-the-top-all-drama-at-the-bottom’ gown, which also served as a reminder that you should never be afraid to literally take up space.

Little Simz

One of many deserved winners on the evening, Little Simz looked chic in a relaxed tailored suit and lace bodice underneath, proving that not only is the rapper a lyrical genius but has mastered androgynous styling, too. Excuse me while I take notes...

Tiana Major9

I adore this look for many reasons, but specifically the emerald green colour-blocking, beautifully beat face, and the expert-level hair braiding. I will always appreciate a ponytail braid as long as the person wearing it...

Tems’ outfit game has been unmatched as of late, and the singer didn’t disappoint on stage at this year’s MOBO awards. The sparkling two-piece, complete with 90s style shades, made the rising star even more of a talking point.

Amelia Dimoldenberg

A classic black dress never fails on the red carpet, and the Chicken Shop star’s chic contribution to the variety of fashions of the night was much appreciated.

Pa Salieu

Rapper Pa Salieu’s truly brilliant outerwear combination — complete with copper-coloured durag — will now serve as inspiration for the rest of my A/W winter wardrobe. As someone who is never seen without a coat at any winter function, I applaud the commitment to fashion and function.

Bree Runway

Ever the taste-maker, Bree Runway graced the red carpet in a fur coat so grand and opulent that I don’t think even P-Diddy could compete with it. I said what I said...

Ahead of her standout performance of “Peng Black Girls”, Enny appeared on the red carpet in an elegant beaded cover that was a beautiful testimony to the star’s style and grace.

Lost Girl

Rising star Lost Girl wasn’t hard to notice in her bright and bold MOBO outfit, and I’m here for the eccentric print, hip-high lace-up heels, and fun fluffy hat, which I’m sure provided mostly style rather than warmth.

Ms Banks & Stefflon Don

Reppin’ for the UK’s Black British female rappers and all the “baddies”, Ms Banks & Stefflon Don wore statement fitted, leopard print latex outfits to perform joint single “Dip” and, to be honest, I’ve watched it five times already.

Midas The Jagaban

Afrobeats star Midas The Jagaban remained incognito in her trademark balaclava, yet still managed to standout amongst the ball gowns and classic suits, with the unique knitted mask and horns. Superhero or musician? Still undecided.
