It was reported that bosses had done everything possible to keep Taylor Swift and Harry Styles apart at the Brit Awards, but as she arrived on the red carpet it was evident she was intent on making her ex jealous.

Dressed in a LBD, the singer looked stunning as she posed for pics outside The O2 Arena in London before the Brits got underway.

The sheer panelled dress, which gave us (and Mr Styles) a peek at her pins, was finished off with a waist-cinching gold belt and dramatic make-up.

According to The Sun, event organisers were worried about Harry and Taylor running in to each other following their break-up last month, with a source telling the paper: “No one wants anything awkward to happen. Taylor and Harry are definitely being kept well apart."

Taylor is due to perform at the ceremony, fresh from her stint on stage at the Grammys where she made a thinly veiled dig at the One Direction singer.
