There were lots of celebrations and commiserations at the Mercury Prize awards last night, but what really disappointed us was Tinie Tempah’s shockingly bad outfit. After looking so tasty at the GQ Man of the Year Awards, we had high hopes. Let’s take a closer look shall we.

All smiles: Rapper Tinie Tempah looks rather pleased with his nomination as he arrives at Grosvenor House for the Mercury Music Prize event

We don’t know why Tinie Tempah is looking so pleased with himself, it looks like he partied too hard at the GQ Man of the Year Awards, kept his trousers on from the suit he wore and picked up the first blazer he saw in the local charity shop. Red velvet, really? And the only way we can excuse sunglasses inside is because of a severe hangover.

We’re not sure if the converse-on-the-red-carpet thing works, no matter how clean, fresh and well-laced they are and since when is the plain grey tee the new plain white tee?

Maybe you guys think his outfit works well? Let us know what you think.
