Sam Smith turns heads in a VERY eccentric inflatable latex jumpsuit and platform heels as they hit the red carpet at the Brit Awards
Sam Smith isn’t afraid to push the boundaries when it comes to fashion and it was no different for the singer when they arrived at the Brit Awards in London on Saturday.
The hitmaker, 30, hit the red carpet in a quirky balloon-like latex outfit by the designer Harri.
Sam took a fashion risk on the night but oozed confidence as they hit the media wall.
The outfit featured a high neck, balloon-like sleeves and inflatable-looking legs and a zip-up design over the chest.
Sam teamed the look with a pair of high-heeled boots, looking every inch the popstar.

Sam, who is non-binary and uses the pronouns they/them, accessorised with a drop earring and appeared to have freshly dyed their locks bleach blond.
They joined the likes of Maya Jama, Jessie J and Ashley Roberts at the event.
Sam is celebrating the release of hit Unholy with Kim Petras.
Kim recently made history as the first transgender woman to win the Grammy for Best Pop Duo/Group performance at the Grammys alongside non-binary artist Sam.
However the pair came under-fire after their ‘satanic’ performance of Unholy during the 65th annual Grammys.
Host Mo Gilligan took to the stage at the BRITS and welcomed attendees to the show, saying: ‘For the first time ever, we’re on a Saturday night. The tables are back in full effect.’
Aitch took home the first award of the night, winning the Hip-Hop/Grime Act gong.
Beyonce won International Artist of the Year, beating out the likes of Kendrik Lamar, Lizzo and Taylor Swift.
Becky Hill won the Dance Act award for the second year in a row and paid tribute to some of her fellow artists in her speech.
Harry also took home the Best Pop/R&B Award, which was presented to him by actress Salma Hayek.

Host Mo Gilligan then appeared to fluff his introduction to a performance by Lewis Capaldi by calling him Sam Capaldi, however he apologised afterward, joking it was proof how strong the drinks at the BRITs are.
The next award, Best New Act, was won by Wet Leg with lead singer Rhian Teasdale admitting her nerves as she got on stage.
After Harry’s Artist of the Year award, Fontaines DC won International Group of the Year with member Carlos O’Connell accepting.
Wet Leg were honoured with their second award of the night next, taking home the gong for Group of the Year.
Beyonce’s Break My Soul was honoured with International Song of the Year with the performer recording another message for her UK fans.
The 1975 won the award for British Group with lead singer Matty Heay taking the microphone to thank the band’s fans for their support.
Harry picked up his third award next, winning Song of the Year for As It Was, presented to him by country music legend Shania Twain.
Fat Boy Slim took to the stage next to present the award for Producer of the Year to veteran DJ David Guetta.
Sam Smith and Kim Petras took to the stage next for a raunchy rendition of their hit single Unholy, which came hot on the heels of their Grammys performance.

Lizzo, Harry, Lewis Capaldi, David Guetta, Becky Hill, Ella Henderson and Wet Leg also performed on the night.
Shortly after, Mo Gilligan told the audience the show was experiencing technical difficulties and so a clip of Adele performing her song I Drink Wine at last year’s show was played while the production crew sorted out the glitch.
Harry won his fourth and final of the world next when he received the Album of the Year award, presented to him by actor Stanley Tucci.

During Harry’s final acceptance speech, a member of his team briefly took the mic to offer his thanks but Harry snatched it back when he made a joke that he promised his wife they would be like Maya Jama and Stormzy later that night.
The show concluded with David Guetta performing a selection of his hits with the help of Becky Hill, Ella Henderson and Sam Ryder.
Music bosses came under fire when the shortlist for the BRITs was announced last month.
In a surprise snub, female artists were shut out of the Artist Of The Year, which last year introduced a gender-neutral overhaul by scrapping its male and female-centric categories.
The first gender-neutral award was handed to Adele last year, but in her acceptance speech she pointedly told the audience: ‘I love being a woman.’
Harry, Stormzy and Fred Again – real name Fred Gibson – were nominated for album of the year, alongside The 1975 and indie duo Wet Leg, who were the only female act in the category.
Charli XCX, whose fifth studio album Crash topped the charts, and Florence and the Machine, whose album Dance Fever earned the singer her fourth UK number one, were notably absent.
BRIT Award bosses are said to be in talks to bring back separate categories for best male and female artist next year, following the criticism.
