NME Awards 2020: Laura Whitmore is joined on the red carpet by Charli XCX

She’s a red carpet regular who never fails to turn heads with her sensational sense of style.  

And Laura Whitmore looked radiant as ever as she joined Charli XCX at this year’s NME Awards at the 02 Academy Brixton in London on Wednesday.

Laura, 34, was a sight to behold on the red carpet, donning a black long-sleeved mini-dress with an eye-catching cut-out neckline.

The garment featured flared sleeves and structured shoulders while the Love Island presenter added height to her frame with a pair of black ankle boots.

Displaying her lithe physique, Laura styled her platinum blonde locks into loose waves for the evening.

Charli, 27, cut an edgy figure for the event, wearing a black top which she paired with matching leather trousers.

Also sporting black heels with an ankle strap, the singer styled her tresses into a ponytail as she posed up a storm on the red carpet.

Taylor Swift was another famous face at the event. Skipping the red carpet, the singer took to the stage to accept her award for Best Solo Act in the World.

The pop star made a style statement in a deconstructed co-ord as she took to the stage to collect her gong, and to present the Godlike Genius Award to Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis, 41.

Taylor perfectly matched her edgy ensemble to the event’s colour scheme, with the black and white shorts and shirt set showcasing her flair for fashion.

The You Need to Calm Down hitmaker’s asymmetric wrap-over shirt featured an unusual one bardot style white sleeve.

Taylor showcased her lithe pins in the matching pin-striped shorts, boosting her height with a pair of pointed white lace-up ankle boots.

Sinitta was another familiar face at this year’s awards bash, arriving on the red carpet in a bright orange jumpsuit.

Wearing her hood up, Sinitta, 51, posed up a storm for the cameras while adding height to her frame with chunky black boots.

Wearing black leather gloves, The X Factor star completed her look for the bash with a beige handbag.

Meanwhile, Molly Moorish was a sight to behold in a multi-coloured blazer with an intricate pattern along with a matching miniskirt.

Courtney Love received the Icon Award at this year’s NME Awards, following in the footsteps of previous recipient Shirley Manson. 

The singer skipped the red carpet but said as she accepted her award that she was celebrating 18 months of sobriety on Wednesday and so didn’t have time to prepare a speech.  

However, she said in a statement to NME before the awards: ‘Thank you so much for this award, it means a lot.

‘You were there at the beginning and whilst we’ve sparred like siblings over the years I’ve always had a huge respect for what you do, and been very grateful for the support. It’s going to be a great night.’

Billy Bragg called the music industry ‘sexist’ and ‘racist’ as he praised The 1975’s Matthew Healy for saying he will no longer play at music festivals with a lack of female acts on the bill.

Healy made his pledge while responding to the backlash over the recently announced Reading and Leeds line-up, which is dominated by male artists.

Speaking at the NME Awards, Bragg said: ‘Power to Matt for talking out.

‘You have to be allies. If you want these things to change then men have to speak out as well. It’s not just an issue for women, it’s an issue for all of us.’

Asked why change has been slow in the music world, the singer-songwriter said: ‘The industry itself is a sexist, racist industry, unfortunately, I’m sorry to say. I’m ashamed to say.

‘It was back in the day when I first started and it still is. You have to keep on pushing. These struggles never end.’

Founded by the music magazine New Musical Express (NME), the NME Awards are an annual UK music awards show, the first of which was held in 1953.

The awards were first referred to as the NME Poll Winners Concerts and have always been known to be fun and playful ceremonies, especially with the trophies being in the shape of an extended middle finger.

In 1972, the awards were first broadcast on ITV with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones being featured during the ceremonies that were held in London’s Royal Albert Hall or the Empire Pool in Wembley.

Elvis Presley and John Peel both have the most NME Award wins with 26 awards, Oasis boasts 17, has 11 and even Margaret Thatcher has 10.
