The iconic gold BRIT award is getting a fashionable makeover for 2011, as Vivienne Westwood has designed this year's winner's statue.

Draped in a Union Jack, Westwood's white - not gold, as usual - trophy bears the phrase "Stop! Climate Change" at the bottom, flagging up the environmental campaign for which the designer is a tireless campaigner.

Westwood's take on the statue is the first in a new initative, which will see a different design by a leading British designer or creative every year. With the shortlist for this year's ceremony unveiled last night, potential recipient's of Dame Viv's award include Cheryl Cole, Ellie Goulding, Laura Marling, Paloma Faith and Rumer, all of which are up for Best Female Solo Artist.

The 2011 ceremony will take place in London’s O2 arena on Tuesday 15 February, and will broadcast on ITV at 8pm.
