Music stars are wearing white roses on the Brit Awards red carpet to support campaigns against sexual harassment and assault.
Celebrities including Ed Sheeran, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Caroline Flack all showed their support by either wearing white rose pins or holding the flowers as they arrived at the prestigious event.
Guests at Britain’s biggest music awards show were all given the pins to wear in solidarity with the ‘Time’s Up’ movement.
Calls for change have swept through the entertainment industry since women began coming forward to accuse Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein last year.

There was a similar gesture at Sunday’s British Academy Film Awards, where women wore black to oppose sexual misconduct and bullying.
The Time’s Up campaign was backed by more than 1,000 women who work in the entertainment business to campaign against gender inequality and sexual misconduct.
Rising star Dua Lipa, grime artist Stormzy and ubiquitous singer-songwriter Sheeran are among nominees for the awards at London’s O2 Arena, hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall.
All three are also set to perform, along with Justin Timberlake, Rita Ora and Foo Fighters.
Organisers said Ariana Grande was forced to pull out of performing at the awards because of illness.

Radio DJ Jo Whiley was also one of the first stars to grace the red carpet wearing a white rose pin
She had been due to make a surprise appearance in tribute to 22 people killed when a bomber blew himself up at a Grande concert in Manchester in May.
Brit Awards chief executive Geoff Taylor said Grande ‘was not able to travel on doctor’s orders.’
He said the show would still feature a ‘fitting remembrance and recognition’ of the Manchester attack.
