British performer Jessie J has caused a bit of a storm with her latest outfit as she attended the nominations for the 2012 Brit Awards last night (January 12th).

The sultry singer sported a netted gaping dress to the event that revealed large undies and a bra underneath in a midnight-blue hue.

Her daring choice of outfit was paired with a range of gold jewellery items, including gold rings and a chunky gold necklace, which could inspire those in search of online jewellery.

It seems the controversy regarding her gown did not unnoticed as she took to Twitter to hit back at critics.

Jessie J tweeted: “’A girl is not what she wears but what she knows’.”

She also described herself as “on cloud nine” after discovering she was nominated in three categories.

The pop starlet is up for best British female solo artist, alongside Adele, Florence & the Machine, Kate Bush and Laura Marling, as well as best British single for Price Tag and best British breakthrough act.
