If anything can be said about the 34th Annual Brit Awards, the fashions audiences witnessed on the English red carpet were certainly interesting. The Brit Awards were held at the O2 Center in London, England on February 19th. The atmosphere appropriately emitted a pop-punk rock-grunge vibe as celebrities gathered together to celebrate the British industry's pop music awards, which are held annually. The Brit Awards are definitely noteworthy, since London is one of the major fashion powerhouses of the apparel, jewelry, handbag, and accessory industries.
This year, the Arctic Monkeys and One Direction cleaned house as far as trophies were concerned. American singer and actress, Beyonce, performed "XO" at the ceremony. Katy Perry lit up the stage during her Egyptian themed performance of "Dark Horse." International audiences enjoyed the high energy performances throughout the ceremony. The event was hosted by British film and television star, James Corden.
The British jewelry company, Duepunti, held the prestigious honor of being the official jewelry supplier to the 2014 Brit Awards "goodie bags" received by celebrities in attendance with their line of "Duepunti Unconventional Diamonds." The bracelets in the goodie bags were definitely unique- stars received red, white, and blue silicone bracelets embellished with a single white diamond. The bracelets fashioned from the unorthodox medium were advertised to the public at a price of 70 British pounds, or around $117.00 in US dollars, each.

Beyonce's Lorraine Schwartz Earrings
Beyonce was stunning as always in her sequined teal Vrettos Vrettakes gown, complimented by her Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings. We remember these gems from last month's Grammy Awards ceremony.
Rita Ora's Cocktail Rings and Cuff Bracelets
Fashionistas adored Rita Ora's choice of ensemble for the evening gala. Ora sported an eye popping banana yellow Prada gown. Emerald toned stones lined the straps of the gown, giving it a colorful appeal. Ora's chunky cocktail rings and gold cuff bracelets surely did the flamboyant gown justice.
Katy Perry's Bracelet and Ensemble
Not only was Katy Perry wow audiences with her Cleopatra style costume during her performance of "Dark Horse," but she enamored viewers with her off-stage wardrobe selection as well. Within hours of the conclusion of the ceremony, Perry's gown was the chatter of British social media. Perry's fashion forward gown debuted last week on the runways and was designed by Julien MacDonald. Most viewers didn't notice Perry's matching cuff bracelet, but we certainly did!
Kate Moss' Earrings and Bracelet
Many viewers were riled up over Kate Moss' decision to wear David Bowie's playsuit as she accepted an award on Bowie's behalf for "British Male Solo Artist." However, Bowie wasn't concerned, as he supported Moss' choice prior to the ceremony. Bowie originally wore the playsuit, which features playful rabbits, in 1972.
The most interesting thing about Moss' version of the "Rabbit Suit" was her selection of jewelry. Moss donned a pair of demure drop earrings and a colorful metallic cuff bracelet. The jewelry meshed well with the suit without overpowering the design.
Lily Allen's Earrings
Lily Allen's sequined black frock and macaroni yellow Chanel clutch received negative reviews from most fashion critics. The diamond chandelier earrings unsuccessfully attempted to pull the mismatched ensemble together.
Allen must not have been a fan, either, since she ditched the outfit altogether for a beautiful rainbow sequined House of Holland gown, chunky cocktail rings, and a lavender manicure. The House of Holland gown debuted on fashion runways last week.
Duepunti Unconventional Diamonds
"Duepunti Unconventional Diamonds" was the chosen jeweler for the 2014 Brit Awards. Celebrities in attendance received a goodie bag including the red, white, and blue silicone bracelets featuring a single diamond. The bracelets retailed individually online for about $117 USD each.
