NME Magazine's Shockwave Awards were held at 02 Brixton Academy in London, bringing out an interesting mix of characters. Among those in attendance were Elly Jackson from La Roux, Lily Allen, Courtney Love, Mark Ronson, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ke$ha and many, many more.
Jackson, won for single In for the Kill in the category of Best Dancefloor Filler and donned this Amish-meets-Run DMC look which totally worked for her. I challenge you to find any other pop star in this day and age who can pull off adrogyny like her. I have had the pleasure of meeting her on the Toronto leg of her tour last summmer. She was an absolute sweetheart - full of hugs and gratitude - despite appearing seemingly standoffish. Read all about it here.
Lady Gaga also won both Best and Worst Dressed Awards, effectively cancelling each other out, at the ceremony; she wasn't in attendance. Check out some MR.WILL-W.:POP MAVEN faves Lily Allen, Mark Ronson and Ke$ha arrive on the red carpet below:
