I have loved Brit exactly for this reason – their red carpet is delightfully fun, fashionable and fabulous. Artists don’t mindlessly don stifling gowns just off the runway but create a character that complements their aesthetics and music. And the star for the was, of course, Dua Lipa in her “subtle” Giambattista Valli dress.
