We think the invite for the Brit Awards probably listed a dress code along the lines of “Must Sparkle” or “Sequins Required,” because allover bling was a major trend on the red carpet and on stage at the award show. (Even Lorde complied!) So we rounded up some of the most shiny style moments of the night.

From left, Lily Allen went for a midnight blue turtleneck gown covered in sequins, but we really want to talk about her black-and-blonde pony, her second unique hair choice of the week after these highlighter-pink feathers at the Baftas. Next, Katy Perry showed off her décolletage in a plunging metallic embellished mini that looked almost like a suit of armor. As for the all the engagement ring buzz the star has been generating, she didn’t seem to be flashing any major sparklers.

Next, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley selected a red-and-black zebra striped Saint Laurent mini with a bow at the waist, giving us a serious case of stem envy. And finally, Beyoncé did her whole Beyoncé thing, turning it out big time on stage (to perform her new hit “XO”) in a glittering teal gown with sheer paneling on the sleeves and a crazy amount of Lorraine Schwartz bling (no surprise there — remember these crazy rings from the Grammys?). And she traveled by private jet in the stunning design, switching her heels for high-top sneakers (more photos below).

Overall, sequins ruled the night. What do you think of all the high-shine: tasteful or tacky? Share your thoughts below!

For the most part beautiful. I love Beyoncé and Lorde’s dresses.

Katy Perry’s dress makes her look dumpy. Not flattering.

I think it would be hilarious if somebody ripped Beyonce’s wig off……. glue and all…. oh the horror.

How did an article about what people wore to the Brit Awards, turn into an article about Beyoncé? I’m SO sick of reading about her on here. Blah! I liked her better, before People mag started worshiping every little thing she did.
