Lily Allen scooped the award for Best Solo Artist during the 2014 NME Awards in London tonight.

The star was pictured earlier in the night grappling with the Godlike Genius Award with Blondie's Debbie Harry.

Lily looked resplendent at the awards and once again proved that a little quirkiness never goes astray in fashion.

Sir Paul McCartney is being celebrated by fellow songwriters with a special one-off prize at the NME Awards recognising his contribution to music over the past half century.
