After the Brit Awards, labels Universal Music and Warner Music put on lavish parties to celebrate their biggest talents.

Universal Music’s after-party at The Ned with Patron saw winners Billie Eilish , Mabel, Lewis Capaldi and more attend as their friends including Niall Horan and Mel C showed up to toast to them.

Other party people included Harry Styles , who turned out in a bright yellow suit and purple shirt, and models Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. Kendall and Harry were among stars to hit an after-after-party at the The Box in Soho.


Lewis Capaldi was on typical form as the Brits’ Best New Artist dropped to one knee for the cameras at the Universal Party, grinning as he held a hand up to his face.


Later on, he and his close friend Niall Horan (who presented his award) posed with his silver trophy. Horan was dressed in a sharp double breasted blue suit, along with a pale blue button up underneath.

The night may have proved potentially awkward for the former One Direction star, as his ex-flame Hailee Steinfeld was also at the party.

Steinfeld dropped a new song on New Year’s Eve called 'Wrong Direction', which many believe is about her 2017-2018 relationship with Horan.

The song includes lyrics such as “on my tiptoes but I still couldn’t reach your ego” and hinted at the person mentioned in the song’s infidelity, with the lyric, “Lookin’ back, I probably should have known / But I just wanted to believed that you were out sleepin’ alone.”

Eilish, who won the award for Best International Female Artist over the likes of Lizzo, was also seen sitting at a table with her award.

He was joined by Clara Amfo.
