FKA twigs socks it to 'em at awards

Mercury Music Prize nominee FKA twigs is causing waves across the entertainment industry - not only for her skills as a singer-songwriter, but for her reported relationship with Twilight star Robert Pattinson.

Although she lost out to hip-hop trio Young Fathers for the big prize, her nomination has seen a huge boost to her record sales.

She rocked a pair of over-the-knee socks on the red carpet at the awards ceremony, held at Central London's Roundhouse venue in Camden.

The 26-year-old star, whose real name is Tahliah Barnett, had been among the favourites for the prize, on a list which included Damon Albarn, Bombay Bicycle Club, Jungle and Kate Tempest.

Her debut album, LP1, is available now and has been described as an exciting blend of hip-hop and electro.

Past winners of the Mercury Music Prize, given for best album by artists from the UK or Ireland, include Pulp, Franz Ferdinand and Arctic Monkeys.
