Ed Sheeran And Emeli Sande Among First To Arrive For BRIT Awards 2013

The 'A Team' singer and 'Clown' star have taken their turn on the red carpet for today's event.

Ed Sheeran and Emeli Sande are among the first stars to walk the red carpet at the BRIT Awards 2013 today (20th February) at London's O2 Arena.

The 'Lego House' singer opted for a shiny navy blue suit over a plain white shirt and black tie, but kept his trademark style by dressing down the outfit with a pair of black Nike trainers while making his entrance.

Critics' Choice winner Tom Odell has also made his arrival, walking the red carpet in a rich tan pea coat, black t-shirt and jeans and a pair of tan leather boots, fresh from accepting his award at the nominations party late last year.

Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sande, who is nominated for a total of four awards at tonight's event, opted for a simple short black dress and heels while posing on the red carpet.

Earlier in the week Emeli's duet partner Labrinth said he is hoping the 'Beneath Your Beautiful' singer walks away with all four gongs she has been put up for.
