Celebrities illuminated the red carpet in a variety of styles as the BRIT Awards 2023 ceremony got going. While several of them received compliments for tastefully rocking their outfits, some fell flat with the spectators.
The Grammy-winning artist Sam Smith, who was up for an award for the song Unholy, made headlines online when they appeared at the ceremony on Saturday at London’s O2 Arena wearing a black latex outfit.

The 30-year-old entered the annual music festival wearing a Hari Krishnan couture outfit. Blown-up pants and shoulder pads were part of the outfit, and Smith finished it off with a pair of heeled boots and a pair of black latex gloves.
Here are some of the reactions from the Twitter memefest:
“Someone is desperate for attention…wow 😂😂😂🤣😂 #samsmith,” tweeted one critic, while another added, “The humiliation continues for Sam Smith – WTF is THAT?”

Another said, “Honestly, Sam Smith is the most attention-seeking person I’ve ever seen in my life. Genuinely, it’s getting boring now”.
My theory is that UFOs are invading because of Sam Smith. They’ve finally had enough and frankly so have I. Hopefully we can all come together in an intergalactic alliance to help each other send this foul creature back to the pits of hell from which he came. pic.twitter.com/7O6UuQAQvS

Smith’s latest eye-catching ensemble came a few days after they arrived at the 2023 Grammys‘ red carpet with Kim Petras wearing a vivid red Valentino gown, matching gloves, a veiled top hat, and a sparkling cane. The same night, the two celebrities even gave a performance of their hit song Unholy but received criticism for their “satanic” performance.

Smith is non-binary and uses they/them pronouns. They’re known for their edgy looks. Before the Brits adopted genderless categories, they were among those who advocated for them. They were, however, equally critical of the situation this year since there were no female artists nominated for the best artist award.
