Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts lead rock chicks at NME Awards

26 FEBRUARY 2009
It's one of the most rock'n'roll nights of the British music calendar, and Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts from Girls Aloud were clearly influenced by that fact when making their fashion choices for the NME Awards.

The pop music beauties, who are often seen working a more girly look at red carpet dos, were in rock chick mode at the London bash. Nicola opted for a thigh-skimming black dress with lacing and studs around the neckline, while Sarah - her hair teased up into a quiff - eschewed her usual clingy numbers for an edgy slouched dress with horizontal stripes.

And the pair weren't the only two inspired by the spirit of the night. Bob Geldof's daughter Pixie and model Alice Dellal were brimming with attitude. The former in a studded leather and black LBD, the latter in PVC and towering silver platforms.

Winners at the ceremony included Pete Doherty, who took home the best solo artist gong, and Oasis, who won best British band. The group's Noel Gallagher triumphed in the best blog category, but was pipped in the hero of the year section by US President Barack Obama.
