It was a wowser night on the red carpet at the 2009 BRIT Awards, with a barrage of local and international stars taking over. Hosted for the first time by Kylie Minogue, the awards were a great night for Duffy, who collected a total of three gongs. Meanwhile, a perfectly-styled Girls Aloud, dressed in a series of cream and pastel gowns, celebrated their first ever BRIT win for Best British Single. But it was once again Katy Perry, who was named Best International Female, that left us speechless in a pair of tight American Apparel PVC leggings, and Hello Kitty encrusted bodice by The Blonds - currently up for auction on eBay to raise money for charity. As usual, we have rounded up the best and the worst looks from the red carpet, click the image below to check them out.
