The 2013 Brit Awards just went down at the O2 Arena in London, and behind the scenes organizers worked hard to keep Taylor Swift and Harry Styles away from each other.
According The Sun, the performers’ rehearsing schedule was reworked to avoid any chance of Taylor and Harry crossing paths. The band Mumford & Sons traded places with One Direction on the list, which was drawn up when “Haylor” was still a hot commodity. “It could have caused a bit of a headache if the Mumfords kicked off,” says a production insider. “But fortunately they played ball.”
Meanwhile, Swift, who took a jab at Styles on the Grammys stage hit the Brits red carpet in a black slinky number, slit from the floor all the way to her hips on both sides. Joke about her love life all you want, but single looks good on this girl.
Harry looked pretty dapper himself, posing in a suit jacket with his band mates before taking home a Global Success Award. Both 1D and Taylor performed at the awards show, and Harry took the high road once again. Cameras caught a reaction shot of Harry awkwardly clapping when Taylor took the stage to present the Best British Female award. Now this is a guy who keeps it classy.
In case you were wondering, Swifty lost out to Lana Del Rey for the International Female Solo Artist award. (Really.)
