Every single performer had a unique outfit that fit perfectly with their musical presentation. Here are just a few of the stunning and creative outfits that were showcased at the ceremony.
Jessie J was all about the jumpsuits for her two performances. Her first outfit consisted of a nude jumpsuit decorated in black sequins which she wore for her solo demonstration of ‘Price Tag’ as well as for her group performance with Tinie Tempah and Taio Cruz. Jessie J’s wardrobe change brought forth a one-shoulder, one-legged silver sparkling jumpsuit that accentuated her slim figure yet again while she sang along with Brian May and Roger Taylor of Queen.
One Direction sang their hit song ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ in conservative outfits. The boy band is known for always looking trendy and very put together. Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Stiles and Louis Tomlinson were all dressed in white or blue button-up dress shirts, dress pants and Harry along with Zayn were sporting blazers.
Nine British models arrived in farm tractors and were revealed to be wearing couture designed by British designers. London-born supermodel Kate Moss as well as Naomi Campbell were draped in gorgeous golden Alexander McQueen gowns. Other designers who were represented in the runway walk were; Erdem, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, Victoria Beckham, Jonathan Saunders and Christopher Kane.
Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chrisholm, Emma Bunton and Melanie Brown of the Spice Girls performed a spectacular medley of two of their most loved songs; ‘WannaBe’ and ‘Spice Up Your Life’. They looked fabulous as they dressed in character, each representing their 1990’s image.
Having been very ill just last year, George Michael brought his A-game as he performed his song, ‘Faith’. He looked very edgy and dark in black jeans, a black leather jacket, a cross necklace and large bejewelled skull belt.
