Braless Charli XCX leaves little to the imagination in a VERY racy sheer gown and white thong as she makes a sexy appearance at the BRIT Awards
Charli XCX stole the show as she arrived at the BRIT Awards at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday.
The songstress, 30, went braless, leaving little to the imagination in a very racy sheer white gown.
The halterneck frock was embellished with silver sequins and flaunted every inch of her jaw dropping figure.
Charli wore a skimpy white thong beneath and completed the show-stopping look with towering platform heels.
The stunner styled her raven tresses poker straight and opted for a radiant pallet of make-up.
Saucy: Charli XCX stole the show as she arrived at the BRIT Awards at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday
Charli oozed confidence as she posed up a storm before heading into the star-studded ceremony.
The singer, who features among the pop/R&B nominees but missed out on best artist, said on the red carpet: ‘I heard that the reason that there aren’t any women nominated in the best artist category is that the Brits felt that there weren’t enough women in album cycle’.
‘But I was in album cycle and had a number one, critically acclaimed album, so yeah. That is really all I have to say.’
She later jokingly added: ‘I just know that I am iconic.’
Mo Gilligan returned as The BRIT Awards host for the second year running and for the first time in the ceremony’s history, it took place on a Saturday, broadcast live from London’s O2 Arena.
Harry Styles swept the ceremony as he took home four awards – winning in every category he was nominated in – including the coveted Artist of the Year.
The singer, 29, who said he is ‘aware of his privilege’, dedicated the award to several female artists who weren’t nominated after the BRITs received criticism for its all-male Artist of the Year lineup when the category went gender neutral.

He also took home awards for Album of the Year for Harry’s House, Song of the Year for As It Was and Pop/R&B Act during during the show, which was hit with technical difficulties during the live broadcast and also saw British act Wet Leg win big.
Harry kicked this year’s BRITs off with a bang as he opened the show with a performance of his song As It Was.
Host Mo Gilligan then took to the stage and welcomed attendes 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.
High hopes: She captioned the snaps ‘Real winner’
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 niminated 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 talks to bring back separate categories for best male and female artist next year, following the criticism.
