Philip Treacy designs new Brits statue

Philip Treacy has designed this year's Brit Awards statue, following in the footsteps of Damien Hirst who designed last year's multi-coloured polka dot style statue.

The milliner is well known for his work within the music industry and has created hats for artists such as Lady Gaga and Grace Jones, as well as designing headpieces for films such as Harry Potter.

Treacy said that the design of this year's trophy has been inspired by Punk, which is nearly completely black.

Both the Arctic Monkeys and Katy Perry have confirmed to play their first ever performances at the music awards show, which takes place on 19th February at The O2.
