The Brits - Critics' Choice Style

Wed 26 Jan 2011

The Brits - Critics' Choice Style

The nominations are in for this year's Brits, but one up-and-coming singer has already bagged her award.

Jessie J, who has written songs for the likes of Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake and Chris Brown, picked up the Critics' Choice accolade after making her mark with solo single 'Do It Like a Dude'.

Her debut album is out later this year, and if past Critics' Choice winners are anything to go by - all lovely ladies so far - she's going to be huge in both the sound and style stakes.

All hail the indie queens of British cool!

Jessie J

Jessie J

A former BRIT School student, Jessie has written for Christina and has collaborated with hot US rapper B.o.B on her second single 'Price Tag', so it's no surprise that her style is both feisty and urban.
With her blunt fringe, super straight black bob, which she wears with a slick of bold lip colour, her look is dramatic and daring, as are her clothes. Lace body stockings, printed jumpsuits, big pants, chain-detail bodices and plenty of bling and leather - her style makes a real statement!
Get the look with a bold printed catsuit or pair our chain print batwing top with hotpants and printed tights. And don't forget a leather jacket to add edge.

Ellie Goulding

Ellie Golding

Like Jessie J, last year Ellie Goulding picked up both the BBC's Sound of the Year and the Brit's Critics' Choice awards. Her debut album 'Lights' was packed full of lush electro hits including 'Under the Sheets', 'Starry Eyed' and 'The Writer' and sees her nominated in the British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act categories at this year's Brits.
Ellie's style is wild and playful, leopard print adorning go-to pieces from party dresses and short-shorts to floaty chiffon blouses.
Get the look with our leopard print bandeau dress, or pair the printed bell-sleeved blouse with those hotpants and printed tights- it's a must-have match this season.

Florence Welch

It seems that history repeats itself when it comes to recent winners of the Critics' Choice Award. Florence + The Machine took the title in 2009 and the fiery redhead was last year nominated for the British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act, walking away with the Best British Album award for the incredible 'Lungs'.
And the nominations didn't stop there: 'You've Got The Love' is up for Best British Single this year - loved that collab with Dizzee!
Dreamy and romantic, Florence's wardrobe is full of sheer floaty fabrics in nudes, whites and black, with lady-like lace and beading adding delicate detailing.
Get the look with our pearly pink one shoulder embellished dress and the chiffon sleeve pleat dress, or go dark and dramatic in the black one shoulder slinky dress.
