Annie's the saint of Maverick style

Alternative style icon St Vincent (aka Annie Clark) lived up to her reputation at this week's Q Awards.

The 32-year-old Oklahoma-born guitar queen arrived at Wednesday's ceremony at London's Grosvenor House with a look of two halves.

The Now Now and Cheerleader star, sporting cherry lipstick, wore amazing black tights with matching high heels, handbag and sleeveless dress.

This contrasted deliciously with her light 1960s-style throw-around coat, understated pale make-up and distinctive grey hair.

Little wonder, then, that St Vincent scooped the Maverick gong at the ceremony for breaking convention and taking music to new boundaries.

She told journalists that she would not compromise her distinctive style and would continue to explore fresh creative fields.

This year saw the release of her critically acclaimed fourth album backed by stunning live shows plus musical tie-ups with indie stars The National and Talking Heads singer David Byrne.

Industry experts say she is as last getting well-deserved plaudits from outside her cult following.
