Lady Gaga has scooped a Brit Awards hat-trick, winning all three prizes she was up for including best international female and breakthrough act.

The singer, who arrived at the London ceremony wearing a three-tiered white dress and a tall white wig, also won best international album for The Fame, BBC reports.

X Factor runners-up JLS took home two awards for best British breakthrough act and best single for Beat Again.

Dizzee Rascal was named best British male, Lily Allen was voted Best British female, while Florence and the Machine won the best British album for her debut Lungs. Kasabian took the prize for best British band.

Two special categories were created to celebrate the 30th Brits ceremony - the best Brits performance and the best album since the ceremony began.

The Spice Girls' 1997 performance of their hits Wannabe and Who Do You Think You Are was named the best moment in Brits history, while Oasis' (What's the Story) Morning Glory was named best album.

Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher accepted the award, with no sign of brother Noel, and threw the statuette straight into the crowd.

Robbie Williams received the honorary award for outstanding contribution to music, ending the show with a live medley of his greatest hits.
