The music A-list at the ceremony included a sizzling Miley Cyrus who showed off her new bobbed 'do against a white tux mini-dress by Jean Paul Gaultier. She was joined on the red carpet by Taylor Swift who smouldered in a scarlet Elie Saab gown.
And in true Katy Perry style, the singer went colour-coordinated with her shimmering lilac hued Blumarine gown, matched to the purple of her hair and berry glossed lips.
But it was the Brits who cleaned up at the event, with Adele scooping the most awards - including Top Female Artist and Top Pop Artist - while Coldplay won Top Alternative Artist and Top Rock Artist.
