No One Played It Safe On This Year’s BRIT Awards Red Carpet
·3 min read
On Tuesday, the hottest names in music arrived on the 2021 BRIT Awards red carpet to celebrate each other’s accomplishments — and boy, did they do so in style.
Dua Lipa, who took home prizes for British Album for Future Nostalgia and British Female Solo Artist, arrived in a Bridgerton-esque yellow-and-purple corset mini dress with a cowl neckline. The Vivienne Westwood look — which also included black, thigh-high stockings and sky-high croc-print heels — was inspired by a yellow Preen dress worn by the late Amy Winehouse at the 2007 BRIT Awards. (Her performance look, featuring a mini dress printed with the Union Jack, was a nod to Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.)
Of course, Lipa wasn’t the only stunner on the carpet Tuesday night. The HAIM sisters showed up in more casual, though nonetheless chic, tailored ensembles from The Row’s spring ‘21 collection. Taylor Swift, who was given the Global Icon award at the show, brought back the two-piece red-carpet trend in a beaded set by Miu Miu. And Harry Styles stole the show in a brown, patterned Gucci suit that appeared straight out of the '70s… with sneakers.
Ahead, find out what Celeste, Griff, Olivia Rodrigo, and more chose for the BRIT Awards red carpet.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave the president greater power to fire the head of the agency that oversees mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, ruling that the agency's structure violates separation of powers principles in the Constitution.

Yellen, testifying at a Senate subcommittee on the Biden administration's budget proposal, said the economy has been on a "bumpy path" during its reopening after months of restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19. Asked by Republican Senator John Kennedy if she thought inflation would keep increasing at the 5% year-over-year rate seen last month, Yellen said she thought it would be closer to 2% by late this year or early 2022. She also said most measures of inflation expectations beyond the next year show it returning closer to that 2% level, which is the level targeted by the Federal Reserve.
Salvage crews who have spent seven months dismantling an overturned cargo ship along the Georgia coast may turn to using explosives to cut through some of the thickest steel on the remaining half of the hulking vessel. The multiagency command overseeing demolition of the South Korean freighter Golden Ray said Wednesday it has approved the use of shaped explosive charges inside the ship. It's not certain whether workers will need to use the charges, which are designed to focus explosions along a straight line to cut through tough materials like steel, said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Himes, a spokesman for the command team.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday warned Congress that the United States risks a debt default and a new financial crisis as soon as August if lawmakers fail to act quickly to suspend or raise the federal borrowing limit. In testimony to a Senate Appropriations subcommittee, Yellen said defaulting on U.S. debt obligations would be "unthinkable" and "would have absolutely catastrophic economic consequences." Yellen said that to avoid uncertainty for financial markets, Congress should pass new debt limit legislation - allowing the Treasury to continue borrowing - before the latest suspension expires on July 31.
