Sam Smith is not one for taking a backseat when it comes to red carpet dressing. The “Unholy” singer arrived for the 2023 Brits wearing a structured latex jumpsuit that seemed to inflate at the shoulders and thighs. They added platform boots to finish the quirky look and wowed as they posed for photographs. Some even noticed that the inflated legs formed a heart shape — how very apt for Valentine’s week!
Smith is performing during the night so we are expecting a change of outfit that might be a little more flexible for moving around the stage. They join Harry Styles, Lewis Capaldi, Cat Burns, Lizzo, Wet Leg, and Stormzy among the night’s entertainment.
Smith has been wowing in an array of show-stopping outfits lately. Fresh from their devilish performance at the 2023 Grammys as they performed their hit song with Kim Petras wearing devil horns, Smith continues to shake up red carpet style. They have recently spoken of their newfound confidence since turning 30, most notably with their style and relationship with their body.
“Within my industry there is definitely that question of, ‘What should a pop star look like?” they told The Sunday Times. “When I was 25 I came off tour exhausted. I looked to role models in the body world. Every time I went to the pool I felt self-conscious, but I forced myself to take my top off. It paid off because I now have the opposite of body dysmorphia. I look fabulous. I’m finally getting a tan. I’m burnt in places I’ve never been burnt.”
Since coming out as non-binary in 2019 and announcing their change of pronouns, the singer finally feels comfortable in their skin. They were subject to cruel, abhorrent comments online after wearing a silver sequin Valentino jumpsuit to Capital’s Jingle Bell Ball in December, but their journey of self-love means are leaving all negativity behind.
