Smith, 30, shot to stardom over a decade ago after collaborating with Disclosure on the track ‘Latch’.
They’ve since become one of the UK’s biggest pop stars and most recently, they dropped the hit ‘Unholy’ with Kim Petras.
But Smith is continuing to make headlines after appearing at the Brits in a bold red carpet look.
Watch the costume designer of Sam Smith’s red carpet look speak out…
The ‘Stay With Me’ singer wore a custom-made latex suit with puffed-up shoulders and legs.
The outfit has since gone viral on social media and has caused quite a stir.
The journalist reposted a photo of the star at the Brits and wrote: “Methinks ‘they’ is getting a teeny weeny bit over-thirsty for attention. #BRITs.”

However, Gervais, 61, has gone one step further in roasting the ‘I’m Not The Only One’ artist.
The After Life star has taken to Twitter and reposted the image of Smith’s outfit – except with Gervais’ head photoshopped above the star’s head.
“The worst thing about being famous is the lack of privacy. I can’t even walk down the street without people looking and pointing,” the post is captioned.

Gervais’ post has accumulated almost 10,000 retweets and more than 197,000 likes.
However, many of Smith’s fans have taken to the comments and said the criticism of the pop star is too harsh.
One person writes: “I must say, much as they aren’t my cup of tea, it doesn’t bother me what they are up to.
“In fact, I only see things about them from older men who seem increasingly upset about what younger generations are doing. This stuff happened in your generation too.
“You do know that, grandpa?”
While another adds: “Yeah, but they’re not wearing that walking down the street on a normal day.
“They are at an event where everyone dresses up. Not too many people wear tuxedos or evening gowns going to the shops either.”
Others are taking to the comments and pointing out that music legend David Bowie wore something very similar.

“David Bowie rocked this way back when and no matter what he wore, I still love him. He was the best there is!” one person comments.
In agreement, another writes: “He’s like Bowie 2.0.”
However, others are slamming the comparison, with one Twitter user commenting: “Bowie dressed for his talent and creativity he was a master, Sam Smith is just doing it for shock value at this point and it’s embarrassing.”
“Bowie was such a cool creature. I miss him so much. No one can be that good. I hate the comparisons,” somebody else says.
