The BRIT Awards is always one of the most glamorous nights of the year with the biggest stars in music descending on London's 02 Arena for one huge party.

Standing out from the pack is the name of the game at the celeb-packed bash - and the 2020 ceremony was no different.

From near naked displays to outrageous accessories,  a whole host of famous faces have been battling it out to steal headlines and attention from their rivals.

Leading the pack, was US star Lizzo who opted for a bizarre tribute to Hershey's chocolate.

The Truth Hurts singer, known for her inspiring mantra of self love, looked incredible with her hair in an elaborate up do, her dress covered in white text saying 'milk chocolate' and even including a barcode.

The gown was designed by Jeremy Scott for Moschino and also came with a personal tribute to Lizo.

Her custom bag was emblazoned with the phrase "100%" in homage to her biggest track.

As well as performing at the 02, Lizzo will be hoping to come away with one of the biggest awards on offer - best International female.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish, who is also nominated for International Female, arrived clad in head to toe Burberry in her signature oversized style.

The singer was joined on the red carpet by her older brother Finneas O’Connell, who she co-wrote the James Bond theme song No Time To Die with. It's expected Billie will give the first live performance of the track at the ceremony later.

Finneas is a five-time Grammy winner just like his sister and helped her pen her award-winning album When We Sleep, Where Do We Go?

Ashley Roberts

Ashley Roberts left little to the imagination

Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts left little to the imagination as she showed off her incredibly toned abs in a daring two piece ensemble.

It seems as though all her rehearsals for the Pussycat Dolls reunion tour have been paying off as Ashley showed off her dancer's bod.

Stunning Ashley showed her ex Giovanni Pernice what he was missing just weeks after the Strictly Come Dancing hunk announced their break up on Twitter .


Anne Marie attends Brit Awards 2020

Pop starlet Anne-Marie stepped out in a pink and blue silk mini dress - featuring at massive bow on the back - with white gloves and lots of bling.

She teamed the number with a pair of glitzy gold heels and a new pastel pink bob.

The 28-year-old singer’s dress boasted an oversized bow-shaped train as she graced the red carpet at London's O2 Arena.

Last year, the star was nominated for four BRIT Awards after catapulting into the music scene.

However, this year there are no female performers included in the shortlist for best group or album awards, although English singer Mabel, 23, has been nominated for three awards.


Ashnikko commanded attention in her outfit

Singer Ashnikko got plenty of attention on the red carpet after she turned up with her blue hair so long that she needed assistants to carry them.

The American star wore a quirky one-shouldered blue outfit and chunky platform trainers, and two long bunches that swept the floor.

She was accompanied by two bald men in unzipped white jumpsuits, who helped to carry her hair.

Paloma Faith

Paloma Faith stepped out in a floral number and dramatic pink hat

Paloma Faith stepped out in a cream floral dress and huge hat that had definite 'mother-of-the-bride' feels.

The singer paired her frock with a white Miu Miu bag, gleaming necklace under a lace collar and pearl and diamond drop earrings.

She completed the head-turning look with a pink hat as she sported her usual kooky style.

Paloma is enjoying her second night out in a row after she was spotted at the Love Magazine’s London Fashion Week party last night.

Lewis Capaldi

Lewis Capaldi is expected to take home several awards tonight

Lewis arrived looking typically understated in a denim jacket, jeans and trainers.

The Scottish star had fun larking about on the red carpet giving photographers the thumbs, showing off his footwear and pulling a string of hilarious faces.

He is up for four awards tonight - Best Male, Best Single, Best Album and Best New Artist.

His main competition comes from rapper Dave, whose album Psychodrama won the Mercury Prize last year - he's also up for four awards. Also nominated for Best Male are Stormzy, Michael Kiwanuka, Sam Fender and Harry Styles.

Best Female nominations include Mabel, Freya Ridings, FKA Twigs, Charli XCX, and Mahalia.

Harry Styles, Lizzo, Stormzy, Mabel and Rod Stewart will be performing tonight - with Harry fresh from a tough weekend after he was robbed at knifepoint and the death of his ex girlfriend Caroline Flack.

The awards have been criticised for lack of diversity, after every single artist nominated for Best Album and Best New Artist was male.

Seven of the ten Best Song nominations were by men, with the remaining three songs from mixed gender collaborations.

Rising Star will be awarded to Strange singer Celeste - with previous winners of this award including Adele, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding and Jessie J.
