The former Destiny’s Child singer is huge in the UK at the moment. Thus, it was no surprise that she turned up at the biggest event in British music. Her dress – a subtle, Sub-Saharan take on the Bjork swan dress – was a bit of a surprise, however. Get PETA on the horn!
Kevin Wicks founded BBCAmerica.com's Anglophenia blog back in 2005 and has been translating British culture for an American audience ever since. While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
