All eyes were on Madonna as she took a tumble at the BRIT Awards last night but she wasn’t the only person that people were talking about.
Because Michelle Keegan, Rita Ora and Taylor Swift all turned heads on the BRITs red carpet with their stunning beauty looks.
Former Corrie actress Michelle, 27, made a glamorous red carpet appearance sporting voluminous, wavy locks with just a hint of balayage.

Another star to work the nude lips trend was 24-year-old singer Rita Ora who showcased chocolate-brown smokey eyes and chiseled cheekbones (the work of her make-up artist, Emma Osborne).

Taylor Swift, Ellie Goulding and Rita Ora sexed up their outfits, wearing skimpy, cut-out mini-dresses and sky-high heels to party into the early hours.
Making a stylish appearance at the BRITs Universal after-party at the Soho House pop-up in New Oxford Street, 25-year-old Tay Tay was pictured in a plunging, zip-up Emilio Pucci mini-dress featuring sheer, waist cut-outs.

Also joining Taylor at the Universal party was Dougie Poynter’s love-interest Ellie Goulding, who looked incredible in a sequinned red Versace mini-dress with strappy black heels.

Karlie Kloss has retired from Victoria’s Secret in order to study at university and learn more about computer coding!
The 22-year-old US model has worked with the lingerie brand for four years and has walked in the annual runway fashion show twice, but she’s hanging up her wings in order to ‘focus on other business opportunities’ and study at New York University.
Taylor Swift’s BFF revealed in a recent Vogue interview that going to NYU is something she’s wanted to do for a while (she will enrol in the university’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study in autumn 2015).
"I was waiting for the mail to arrive every single day," she told Vogue about her acceptance.
"It’s something that I’ve wanted to do for a very long time."
But it doesn’t mean she’ll be hanging up her stilettos any time time soon as she insists she’s still focused on her career as a full-time model.
"I’ll still be working full-time. I’m incredibly

So it’s no wonder a number of actresses used the Oscars 2015 as an opportunity to debut their new, on-trend hairstyles.
Margot Robbie, Suki Waterhouse and Lily Collins were all pictured with new haircuts and we reckon they all look blimmin’ amazing with their edgy new ‘dos.
‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ star Margot had perhaps the biggest change as she chopped off her long, blonde locks into a chic, shoulder-length bob.
The 24-year-old Aussie actress, who presented the Technical Achievements award at the Academy Awards, teamed her glamorous hairstyle with matte red lips and stunning jewels.
The ‘Focus’ star is actually something of a hair chameleon – she’s had everything from auburn locks to peroxide blonde and deep, rich chocolate brown, seen here on Instagram.
But we reckon her side-swept blonde bob (teamed with a plunging Saint Laurent gown) is one of her best yet.

Wrong. Julianne Moore and a host of Oscar-nominated A-Listers walked the red carpet for the Independent Spirit Awards 2015 in Santa Monica yesterday, 24 hours before the biggest night of their careers – the Academy Awards!
The 54-year-old flame-haired actress not only took home the award for Best Female Lead at the awards celebrating independent films but she nabbed the Best Dressed gong from us too.
The ‘Still Alice’ star looked ready for spring in her Christian Dior Spring 2015 Couture halter-neck dress, which featured 3D embellishment and sheer panels.
Julianne’s strappy platform heels, poker-straight locks and fresh, flawless make-up gave the couture gown a youthful twist that she pulled off perfectly.
But she wasn’t the only attendee to go bold and colourful on the red carpet as Aubrey Plaza,

Celebrity make-up artist Francesca Neill led the team #bts - and she used the cult favourite Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer, of courseBy Sophia Moir | Barefaced Beauty Blog – Fri, Feb 13, 2015 18:15 GMT
Beauty is back in a big, bold way for next season, let me tell you.Read More »from Behind-The-Scenes With Collection Cosmetics For Its Summer 2015 Campaign Shoot!
Going behind-the-scenes with Collection Cosmetics for its Summer 2015 campaign shoot, I learnt that it’s ALL about bright, in-your-face colour for SS15.
The models sported in-your-face fuschia pink lips, bright two-tone manis and bold, Cara Delevingne-esque brows.
I spoke to celebrity make-up artist Francesca Neill (@FrancescaNeill on Twitter) to find out how she created the looks for the upcoming campaign…
The first shot of the day was focused around the new Collection Lasting Colour Lipsticks (out in May 2015), which I found to be super moisturising and highly-pigmented when swatched.
Francesca and the Collection team opted for a matte lipstick (one of six mattes in the new range) in the shade ‘Pink Diva’, which was an almost-neon, fuchsia pink.
She told me that the shade in question added ‘power and impact’ to the ‘fresh, spring’ look, which I totally agree with – it would have looked quite plain otherwise.

Because the 33-year-old looked the picture of health as she made a public appearance in Portsmouth today, Feb 12.
Catherine sported a subtle golden glow and naturally lighter locks as she visited the new home of Ben Ainslie Racing and the 1851 Trust, of which she is a patron, in the historic naval city.
The 1851 Trust aims to get more young people into sailing and also bring the America’s Trust back to Britain.
Prince William’s expectant wife donned a fit-and-flare Max Mara coat-dress for the visit which flattered her six-month baby bump.
However we’re not sure how sensible her sartorial choice was considering she spent the morning painting a mural with young children.
Luckily it didn’t get in the way of her enjoying some creative fun with the youngsters as she was pictured trying her hand painting a mural (let’s just hope some of the younger children didn’t splatter paint on her
