Award season is in full swing, and celebrities are using award ceremonies to make a statement in 2018.

With the BRIT awards taking place tonight at London’s O2 arena,  celebrities are preparing to show their support for the Time’s Up movement on the red carpet.

At the BRITs 2018, famous faces have decided to wear a white rose pin or carry the flowers themselves to show respect to and stand in solidarity with victims of sexual abuse.

Celebs such as Ed Sheeran and Paloma Faith have already donned the floral accessory.

Ed, who fans think may have already wed Cherry Seaborn, wore a real white rose in his jacket pocket.

Meanwhile Maya Jama opted for a more subtle pin.

And we’re sure as many more famous faces will follow suit as they arrive for the star-studded event, which kicks off tonight at 8PM on ITV.

Of course this isn’t the first time this year celebrities have got together to show support on the red carpet.

Celebrities wore black to the Golden Globes and BAFTAS earlier this year to  so support after the Hollywood sex abuse scandals that surfaced in 2017.

However not everyone obliged, as Kate Middleton shunned the all-black look for a very important royal reason.
