Irish stars of fashion and music make a dramatic entrance to tonight's awards
Red carpet regular Laura Whitmore looks polished and preened as she was one of the first celebrities to walk arrive at the prestigious music ceremony.
The Bray native (29) is wearing a red leather and metallic dress by London based designer Hasan Hejazi.
And she was in good company with Kate Middleton's favourite milliner and Galway native Philip Treacy also appearing at the event in a rare red carpet appearance.
Northern Irish tv presenter Zoe Hardman also happily posed for photographers alongside some of the most famous music acts in the world.
Pixie Lott, Ellie Goulding, Nile Rodgers, Foxes, Marvin Humes and Boy George were also among the early arrivals.
But the name on everyone's lips for the night is Beyonce.
The superstar singer is said to have jetted into London especially for the Brit Awards stage as confirmed by host James Corden.
