Billed as "the wildest night in music," the NME Awards returned to London's O2 Academy Brixton last night.
Co-hosted by grime star Lady Leshurr and comedian Daisy May Cooper, the ceremony featured a star-studded red carpet and performances from Sam Fender, Griff, and Chvrches featuring The Cure legend Robert Smith.
This Way Up actress Aisling Bea was in attendance on the night to award Dublin post-punk band Fontaines D.C. with the 'Best Band in the World' award.
Bea, who is known for making a statement with her wardrobe whether it be with Irish labels or eco-conscious designs, chose a chic suit from Kyiv-based brand Nué.
The blazer featured oversized shoulders, double-breasted concealed buttons, notched lapels and some eye-catching, accented cups embellished with crystal rhinestone cords.
Paired with the coordinating low-waist skirt and a black bra from Dora Larsen, Bea is on bang on trend with this early 2000's aesthetics.
She accessorised the look with statement pearl drop earrings, a chunky gold chain bracelet and a smattering of gold and silver rings from Alighieri Jewellery.
Make-up artist Justine Jenkins gave Bea a beautifully bronzed smokey eye, using all cruelty free brands and products, while hair stylist Narad Kutowaroo gave the look a final touch with soft, beachy waves.
The Irish woman's choice to wear a Kyiv-based designer is a significant one, with the sovereignty of Ukraine coming under increasing threat from Russia in the past number of weeks.
Posting photos of the night to Instagram, Bea wrote: "Unfortunately I had no time to get ready or get any help with my look as I had just rolled out of bed, but HAD I, say, had a teeny bit of help or time…It would have been the amazing @hopelawrie styling me in this incredible suit by @nue_studio who are a Kyiv founded brand. 🇺🇦Each piece they make is crafted by Ukrainian tailors and jewelers and it was truly an honour to wear your clothes, thank you so much for letting me borrow them. Dyakuyu."
Bea is not the first celebrity to use a red carpet event to highlight the topic, with high-profile celebrities and athletes using their platforms to highlight the plight of those in Ukraine by wearing blue and yellow (the colours of the Ukrainian flag) to award ceremonies and discussing the invasion during their red carpet interviews.
