Safe to say, there was no risk of anyone wearing the same thing
Sam Smith caught the attention of many at the BRIT Awards on Saturday night with their choice of red carpet attire, wearing a black latex, balloon-like outfit.
The singer was nominated for two awards at this year’s awards, for Best Pop/R&B Act and a second for Song Of The Year for their hit Unholy featuring Kim Petras.
They’ve had plenty of attention in recent weeks following the release of ‘Unholy’ and in particular the music video, which some have taken issue with for apparently being overly sexual.
Meanwhile, last month Smith – who identifies as non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them – said they have learned to love their body and now has the “opposite of body dysmorphia.”
The star was full of confidence on the red carpet ahead of the Brits, wearing an eye-catching latex outfit that featured a rather high neck, sleeves, and legs which appeared to be overinflated, and a zip going up the front of their all-in-one look.
Along with this, Smith wore a pair of heeled boots and a pair of tiny earrings as they posed for photographs on the red carpet before making their way into the main arena area.

Later in the night, they took to the stage to perform ‘Unholy’ along with Petras.
Smith was praised for wearing the unusual outfit after weeks of being trolled. Fans said their confidence in style speaks volumes.
One fan wrote, “So much love to Sam Smith for being unapologetically fat and femme with the eyes of a million miserable protein-based muscle-poofs on them. They look good and the haters can keep hating!”
“I may not always like the outfits Sam Smith chooses, but I love his confidence while wearing them.”
“Love how Sam Smith is responding to bigotry by just not giving a f*** and just being unapologetically themself.”
I love seeing the elderly being wound up by Sam Smith’s choice of clothing.
I can’t believe they’re the first person to ever wear something whacky! pic.twitter.com/k4BwAPntmu
