Ellie Goulding dazzled the crowds as she arrived at the Brit Awards in a princess-style gown.

The Burn singer, who won the British female solo artist prize, wore a Vivienne Westwood dress, featuring a sculpted pink bodice with frothing white layers of netting from the waist down and pockets.

She was one of the early arrivals at the ceremony, staged at London's O2 Arena, who also included Ella Eyre - who scooped the best British single for her collaboration with Rudimental, Waiting All Night - in an animal-print netted Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Katy B, who is topping the album chart with her second album Little Red, fittingly wore a long crimson dress with gauze panels by Torn by Ronny Kobo.

"This last few years has been such a whirlwind. It's just mental. You can't even keep track of things. I've been in the studio for two years writing songs constantly, so it's such a lovely feeling to know that my songs have connected with people, and people would want to buy my album. It's a wonderful feeling," Katy said.

The Lights On singer revealed her songwriting process is never-ending, saying: "I've started thinking of the next seven albums, let alone the next one!"

Other eye-catching outfits included Rita Ora's bright yellow floor-length gown with a plunging neckline, Kylie Minogue's black rubber dress with giant bow detail and Lily Allen's dramatic new look with yellow tinted hair as they trod the red carpet at the most glamorous night of the year for the UK music world.

A slimline Boy George also attracted attention with his new towering quiff and what appeared to be a graze around the left side of his face, although he is well known for his elaborate experiments with make-up.

Rudimental's DJ Locksmith (Leon Rolle) and Amir Amor stole the style stakes for the men, as they turned up in co-ordinated printed suits.
