Dua Lipa hailed the power of women as she picked up the best British Female Solo Artist gong at the Brit Awards.
The New Rules chart-topper, who became the first female in the history of the Brits to be nominated for five awards and won two on the night, paid tribute to the women who have come before her as she took to the stage to accept the award.
The 22-year-old singer-songwriter thanked "every single female that has been on this stage before me, that has given girls like me - not just girls in the music industry - but girls in society, a place to be inspired by, to look up and have allowed us to dream this big."
She added: "Here's to more women on these stages, more women winning awards and more women taking over the world."
The star also won the British Breakthrough Artist accolade during Wednesday's ceremony.
Meanwhile, grime artist Stormzy was the other big winner on the night. He triumphed over fellow nominees Ed Sheeran, Liam Gallagher, Rag'n'Bone Man and Loyle Carner to be named British Male Solo Artist.
The Croydon-born star appeared to be overwhelmed as he accepted his first ever Brit award. He rubbed his face in shock and said: "I'm going to try ... firstly, thank God, that's the reason I'm here, that's the reason why I'm able to do what I do.
"My mum is somewhere here, I love you mum, thank you", before adding: "I don't even know how I have managed to achieve this, this is the grace of God!"
The 24-year-old music star later in the evening won British Album of the Year for his debut release Gang Signs And Prayer.
In a competitive category, British Single of the Year went to Rag 'n' Bone Man for Human, beating off stiff competition from mega hits such as Ed Sheeran's Shape of You and Dua Lipa's New Rules.
The Damon Albarn-fronted group Gorillaz won the British Group Award.
American rapper Kendrick Lamar, who recently kicked off the European leg of his Damn tour in Dublin's 3Arena, won the International Male Solo Artist gong, while New Zealand singer-songwriter Lorde was crowned International Female Solo Artist.
International group went to the Foo Fighters, which marks the fourth time they have won the prize.
Ed Sheeran was presented with the Global Success award by Rolling Stones rocker Ronnie Wood, who had some high praise for the singer-songwriter.
"A few years ago, Ed performed with us in the States and he was really great, we saw in him a prolific songwriter, a lovely young guy", Wood said.
"He really is one of the top talents we have, and I tell you what, it's made him so famous and so loveable, he's kept his feet on the ground, he's won our hearts and sold millions of records."
Harry Styles won the British artist video of the year award for Sign Of The Times, fending off competition from fellow One Direction star Liam Payne, who was nominated for Strip That Down, and ex-member Zayn whose collaboration with Taylor Swift, I Don't Wanna Live Forever, was also in the running.
During the ceremony at London's O2 Arena, Liam Gallagher paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing after Ariana Grande was forced to pull out due to illness.
A host of stars including Rita Ora, Ellie Goulding, Paloma Faith and Cheryl, showed support for the Time's Up movement at the Brit Awards by carrying white roses on the red carpet while Ed Sheeran wore the flower pinned to his jacket.
