While the focus of the BRIT Awards last night (11 May) may have been on musical excellence, we can’t help but have noticed it was also a night for queer fashion excellence as well. 

Here are some of the strongest looks from LGBTQ icons in attendance, including Olly Alexander, Billy Porter, Adam Lambert and Rina Sawayama:

Never one to shy away, Billy Porter has become known for delivering every single time he graces a red carpet. Last night was no exception as he wowed in yet another stunning look.

Prior to taking to the stage with Sir Elton John, Olly Alexander added to the star-studded runway with this star-emblazoned outfit, all of which complimented his new Years & Years single ‘Starstuck’ perfectly. Where can we get that harness?

Cat got your tongue? Adam Lambert looks fierce in this leopard print ensemble. Shania Twain, eat your heart out.
