LEAVE it to pop stars to bring the OTT fashion — from Rita Ora’s giant feathered ball gown to one star’s hilarious unintentional Bridesmaids tribute.

“You’re really doin’ it, Dua? You’re s**ttin’ on the BRIT Awards red carpet ...”

You can always count on pop stars to bring the OTT fashion — Rita Ora, who memorably rocked a bathrobe on the red carpet at the MTV EMAs last year, brought the glamour in a white feathered frock that rivalled Dua’s for drama:

And, like Dua, Rita needed her own dress helper on hand:

Oh, and those white roses everyone’s carrying? They’re a symbolic gesture in support of the Time’s Up and Me Too movements, much like the acting world’s gesture of wearing black.

Many female stars carried roses on the red carpet — but fewer men, something that nominee Paloma Faith wasn’t happy about.

“The only thing I’m upset about tonight is not more men carrying white roses. I think they should have,” she told BBC News, before pinning a rose to a member of rock group Royal Blood.
