While fans are accustomed to seeing her in shimmering, slinky Versace dresses and metallic, spotlight-stealing gowns, the 2021 BRIT Awards offered her a chance to do a full 180 from her usual fashion M.O. and opt for drama. She arrived wearing a sky-high bouffant hairdo and a theatrical gown from Vivienne Westwood Couture that featured vertigo-inducing platforms and a sexy touch that's a rarity on the red carpet: garters. The yellow mini dress also featured a purple mesh overlay and included a show-stopping draped asymmetric train. Fans of the designer will recognize the dress's corseted bodice and draped neckline, both details being trademark Westwood. A statement from the brand explained that Lipa finished the look with faux-croc purple platforms and a three-row pearl choker that featured the iconic British designer's galactic logo.

"Being back on the BRITS stage, I wanted to do something different, something special, so there's pressure that comes with that, but I'm very excited," she told the BBC. "It's different and it's fun and I just decided to go a little bit out there with the performance but make it very London."

Back in 2019, she wore garters with a full Dion Lee outfit to the MTV EMAs in Seville, Spain. The look was less bordello babe and leaned into kink territory, pairing satin ankle boots with the garters and a leather body harness.
