Brit Awards 2014

He Follows in the footsteps of Vivienne Westwood and Damien Hirst who have added their take to the famous statue in previous years. 


He said: "Music has always been my inspiration and I'm fortunate to have worked with some of the music industry's greatest artists."










"My inspiration for the trophy comes from a uniquely British genre of music, punk."


The design instantly takes me back to the 'Mohawk' headdress worn by Sarah Jessica Parker to this years Met Gala
