Olivia Rodrigo arrives; he will later make his UK live debut on the show itself. I can’t help but feel that if she wants to remain known beyond High School Musical, she might have chosen something less thunderously prom-worthy, but the color stands out.

Read Laura’s great profile with her here if you want to catch up on her amazing rise so far.

We also hit Young T & Bugsey, who are set to be a groundbreaking artist, a British group, and a British single, making them top of the nominees (with many others in this field fairly even).

In the ever-upside-down awards craze for men, it’s gotten to the point where wearing a tux is starting to seem like a radical wardrobe choice and dressing in neon tartan is the height of normcore. Bugsey looks great on yours.

Nice from Celeste to come as an exquisite corpse drawing: upper and lower thirds beautiful ballerina, youthful raven of the middle third.

I don’t know anything at all about fashion and I’ve been wearing the same stretch pants and the same sweater with rollers for 15 months. The first time I went out after the lockdown, I quickly tried on and discarded three outfits before leaving the house in a terrible combination that I regretted all day. Seeing the red carpet photos arrive tonight, well I’m glad it’s not just me doing giant stabs in the dark about how to dress in 2021. So far, the look is pretty Quality Street-core. Congratulations to Griff for designing some glaring umbrella problems.
