It was a night of glitz and glamour at the BRIT Awards 2014 in London on Wednesday. The biggest stars from the U.K. and U.S. came together to celebrate the best in music, but first they strut their stuff on the red carpet.

Fresh off shooting her “Fancy” video in L.A., Iggy Azalea was red hot in a floor-length Elie Saab gown.

Fellow blonde Rita Ora beamed in yellow as she arrived with her boyfriend Calvin Harris, who she collaborated with on her new single “Never Let You Down.”

Before he hit the stage to perform, Pharrell Williams brought some sunshine to the O2 Arena. The Neptunes hitmaker traded his signature hat for a sparkly tuxedo, posing with his arm around his wife Helen Lasichanh.

British Female Solo Artist nominee Jessie J rocked long black hair and a cleavage-baring catsuit, and Nicole Scherzinger was fierce in a bondage-inspired getup.
