Winning the prestigious prize for the second time, PJ Harvey won big at the Mercury Music Awards

PJ Harvey beat off stiff competition from fellow nominees including Adele, Elbow and Tinie Tempah to win one of music’s biggest accolades, the Mercury Music Prize, for the second time.

MUSIC STYLE ICONS

Delighted by her win, the ethereal singer/songwriter admitted of her album, Let England Shake, that she wanted to create: “Something of meaning, not just for myself but for other people.”

INSTYLE'S A-Z OF WHAT'S HOT IN SEPTEMBER

On collecting the award, in a floor-length white gown and a feather headdress, PJ Harvey suggested she would be able to enjoy this win more than that of 10 years ago, saying: "It's really good to be here as when I last won 10 years ago on September 11 I was in DC watching the Pentagon burn from my hotel room."

A worthy win!
