No One Played It Safe On This Year’s BRIT Awards Red Carpet
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.

Miguel Sanó hit a two-run homer in the 12th inning to lift Minnesota past Cincinnati 7-5 on Monday night — the fifth straight victory for the Twins and fifth loss in a row for the Reds. With a five-man infield and a runner on third, Sanó hammered a 3-1 slider from Heath Hembree (1-3) over the wall in left-center. It was Minnesota's fourth consecutive extra-innings win after eight straight losses in extras to start the season.
On Jeopardy! Monday, one medical clue in particular did not sit well with many fans. And they took to social media with their disgust. Coming from a category called Plain-Named Maladies, the clue that was read by host Savannah Guthrie said, “Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome is also known as Grinch Syndrome because this organ is too small.” The correct answer was, “what is the heart?” Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, also known as POTS, is defined by myheart.net as a condition that affects the flow of blood through the body, causing dizziness when standing. It occurs mostly in younger women, and also includes elevated heart rate, extreme fatigue and lightheadedness as other common symptoms. There has also been an uptick in POTS diagnosis in patients who also had Covid-19. But Jeopardy!’s use of the term “grinch syndrome,” and associating it with having a small heart - which is not currently linked to POTS - both rubbed people the wrong way. One viewer said, “Oh Jeopardy! this is shameful. I have POTs and am sad you would resort to this. How low. And I might add, incredibly incorrect.”
Foreign governments are “beautifying” acts that endanger national security in Hong Kong when they criticize the recent crackdown on a pro-democracy newspaper, the leader of the semiautonomous Chinese territory said Tuesday. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam's comments come as some countries including the U.S. condemn the arrest of editors and executives at Apple Daily and the freezing of its assets as the latest examples of eroding freedoms in the former British colony. “Don’t try to underplay the significance of breaching the National Security Law, and don’t try to beautify these acts of endangering national security, which the foreign governments have taken so much to their heart," Lam said.
Passengers on the London Underground will have mobile coverage throughout the network by 2024, the Mayor of London has said. Transport for London (TfL) said work on preparing some of the capital's busiest stations - including Oxford Circus, Tottenham Court Road, and Bank - would begin soon, and they would be among the first fully connected stations by the end of next year. TfL has awarded a 20-year concession to BAI Communications (BAI), a global provider of 4G and 5G connected infrastructure, to counter so-called not-spots in the network.

Andrew Eccles/ABCFrom the moment The Bachelorette began airing Katie Thurston’s group date with guest star Nick Viall, you could tell something was going to be different. The candles, rose petals, and jewel tones disappeared in favor of a stark circle of chairs inside what looked like a darkened studio space. But if the setup felt awkwardly self-serious at first, it soon became clear why.The Bachelorette began to lead a conversation about vulnerability, in which (most of) her suitors disclosed t
