Harry Styles wore a black ribbon in honour of Caroline Flack

Former One Direction star Harry Styles took to the BRITs carpet in a purple jumper and shirt which he wore beneath a smart brown blazer. Known for his quirky style, the Watermelon Sugar singer accessorised with a pearl necklace, but perhaps most importantly, a single black ribbon that he wore out of respect for his former flame, Caroline Flack, who tragically passed away on Saturday.

Penny Lancaster and Sally Humphries posed for a photo

The rockstar wives were out in force on the BRITs' red carpet, and at one point Penny Lancaster, who is married to rocker Rod Stewart, posed for a photo with Sally Humphries, who is married to Rolling Stones star Ronnie Wood. It's safe to say the two beauties gave their husbands a run for their money…

Lizzo, Jack Whitehall and Harry Styles had the most hilarious exchange

At one point in the evening, Jack Whitehall pulled up a chair next to Lizzo and had what might be the most hilarious exchange of the night. Firstly, Jack asked Lizzo how Britain as a nation can be less grumpy, and the superstar hilariously replied: "Just listen to Lizzo. Just buy my album." Next, the comedian asked Lizzo what she thought about Glastonbury – or more specifically, Somerset – prompting laughter from the musician, who didn't seem to know what Jack was talking about, and asked: "Wait, what'd you say?" Most hilariously of all, though, was when Lizzo tapped Harry Styles on the back and struck up a conversation with him. Harry, who was conveniently sat directly behind her, had performed with the Good As Hell singer recently, so the pair are clearly close, which prompted Jack to tell the former One Direction star: "Harold, back off."
