Little Mix has a lot to celebrate! The British girl group formed in 2011 is marking its 10th anniversary this year.

On Tuesday, the X-Factor winners made history as the first all-female group to win Best British Group at the 2021 Brit Awards.

In their acceptance speech, Little Mix took the opportunity to call out male dominance in the awards show.

Leigh-Anne Pinnock said: “It’s not easy being a female in the UK pop industry. We’ve seen white male dominance, misogyny, sexism, and lack of diversity. We’re proud of how we’ve stuck together, stood our ground, surrounded ourselves with strong women, and are now using our voices more than ever.”

Little Mix dedicated their award to other female groups, including Spice Girls, Sugababes, All Saints, and Girls Aloud, who were overlooked by Brit Awards in the past years.

They also gave a shout-out to their former bandmate Jesy Nelson, who left the group in December 2020 to focus on her mental health.

After announcing their pregnancies earlier this month, Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Perrie Edwards debuted their baby bumps on the 2021 Brit Awards red carpet.

They looked positively radiant as they showed off their growing belly while posing for photographers with their bandmate Jade Thirlwall.

The three-piece group coordinated their looks in white gowns, with Perrie and Leigh-Anne cradling their baby bumps.

Perrie, 27, announced on Monday that she is expecting her first child with professional soccer player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

She shared the news via Instagram, posting a black-and-white photo of her belly along with the caption: “So happy to be on this wild journey with my soulmate. Me + Him = You. We can’t wait to meet you baby Ox!”

During Tuesday’s big event, Zayn Malik’s ex put emphasis on her stomach in a David Koma Spring 2021 dress.

Available for $2,900 at Net-A-Porter, this stretch-cady gown is spliced at the waist with a sheer tulle insert, creating an illusion of a two-piece outfit. It has a bralette top with cold-shoulder sleeves and a tiered voile skirt with a train.

Beauty-wise, the mom-to-be styled her long blonde tresses down in waves with braided tendrils framing her gorgeously made-up face. She wore shimmering eyeshadow with mascara, eyeliner, and peachy lip gloss.

For her accessories, she went with a dainty pendant necklace and a nose ring. A pair of Rene Caovilla Cleo crystal-embellished sandals with coil straps completed her stunning look.

Perrie’s pregnancy news came just a week after her bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock announced hers.

On May 4, the 29-year-old singer posted on her Instagram a few snaps from her maternity photoshoot with her professional footballer fiancé Andre Gray.

She captioned her post: “We’ve dreamed about this moment for so long and we can’t believe the dream is finally coming true… we can’t wait to meet you.”

For her red carpet look, Leigh-Anne highlighted her growing belly in a sleeveless semi-sheer gown with white strips from Maison Margiela.

She looked beautiful with her braided wrap-around high ponytail, false lashes, eyeliner, and matte lipstick.

The moms-to-be sandwiched Jade Thirlwall, 28, who wowed in a white Vivienne Westwood strapless gown. The cleavage-baring number features a cowl neck and a draped bodice with a floor-length hem.

Beauty-wise, she wore fiery bronzed makeup and styled her long raven tresses down in waves mixed with chic micro braids.
