Tonight (February 24), before the United Kingdom celebrates the best in pop music, some of the nation's biggest stars are determined to steal the BRIT Awards' spotlight through daring red carpet looks.

The 2016 BRITs, the ceremony's 36th annual installment, have got clear appeal this year: Adele, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Little Mix, The Weeknd and Jess Glynne are performing and Ant & Dec are sure to bring the laughs as the show's hosts. But with Jess Glynne's wild mane, Little Mix's coordinating warrior princess getups and James Bay's signature hat considered, the real show might come from outside of London's O2 Arena.

Yes, between sparkly silver dresses and sharp, custom suits that are typical of most red carpet affairs, the show's guests have really kicked their respective style games up a notch as they stopped to show off their looks for shutterbugs. Kylie Minogue in a top hat? Adele adorned in flowy burgundy draping? Evidently, the night might also double as London's own Fashion Night Out.

Above, we've collected some of the night's most memorable looks — some left us completely gobsmacked and others had us scratching our heads, but we can say with certainty that few garments left us bored. Check out the 2016 BRIT Awards red carpet in a nutshell, and be look at the show's full winners list to see who came out on top!
