2021's Best Red Carpet Moments From British Celebrities
British celebrities really came with their best for the return of red carpet fashion in 2021. The reopening of the fashion, film, and music industries encouraged the most stylish of Brits to embrace sparkling gowns, voluminous tulle, corsets, feathers, and sumptuous black velvet. Fancy finding out which Brits had the most memorable red carpet moments? We hand-picked 36 breathtaking looks that will set the standard for 2022 celebrity style.
Of the best-dressed British celebs, Cynthia Erivo and Rina Sawayama really elevated our expectations. They both have fun with a statement outfit while also looking polished and glam on the red carpet. Sawayama's lilac ruffle Balmain gown at the 2021 BRIT Awards was one of the most impactful red carpet fashion moments of the year. As with Erivo, it was difficult not to include every single one of her looks this year because her balance of avant-garde and elegant is a truly unique skill.
Stars that sartorially evolved in 2021 were definitely Michaela Coel and Rochelle Humes. Coel mesmerised us in her open-back Maximilian dress at the 2021 BAFTA Awards. Rochelle Humes, we honestly didn't expect, but this year saw her try some deliciously daring outfits — particularly the Galia Lahav gown she wore to the 2021 Fashion Awards.
Emma Corrin and Nicola Coughlan represented for avant-garde style. Corrin's outfits this year were walking pieces of art, particularly the yellow Miu Miu dress she wore to the 2021 Emmys. Coughlan's gowns became increasingly hypnotising with each red carpet appearance. We love how she balances a playful girlishness with a touch of gothic styling. And our style crush for 2021? Iris Law, who excited us every time with her edgy and experimental outfits.
