The 2008 Brit Awards was held last night at Earls Court in London and for once a red carpet event was not full of dull coloured long gowns! For the Brit Award crowd it was all about showing off the legs in thigh high or mini length dresses. Well if you've got it, flaunt it.

Kylie Minogue wore a sparkly black strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline by Vicky Tiel which she contrasted with very cool heels and bright tangerine nails. Meanwhile, Girls Aloud provided support for bandmate, Cheryl Cole (nee Tweedy) as all four girls wore dresses that were cinched at the waist and showed off their pins. I wonder if it was a conscious thing to have the girls in black and white not standing next to each other? I love Nicola Roberts' red leopard print dress, but I don't understand why a bright pink clutch is the accessory de jour for the girls. Perhaps it's just a match-y match-y thing?

Check out the winner's list below.
