Trunfio s Grammy pride
Supermodel Nicole Trunfio and boyfriend Gary Clark Jr.

Supermodel Nicole Trunfio says she's on cloud nine and "so proud of my baby" after her boyfriend, musician Gary Clark Jr, won his first Grammy yesterday.

Trunfio, who grew up in Merredin, wore a stunning silver dress as she accompanied Clark Jr on the red carpet and later posted pictures of the pair on Instagram, with the caption "Congrats @garyclarkjr on your first Grammy. Here's to many more". Clark Jr won for best traditional R&B performance.

Teenage sensation Ella Yelich O'Connor, aka Lorde, claimed two of the main trophies: Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.

Left in her wake were some of the titans of the industry, including Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, Pink, Sara Bareilles and rapper Macklemore, who sat in their seats and applauded the teenager when her name, not theirs, was called out as the winner.

Mars did halt a potential clean sweep when he won Best Pop Vocal Album for Unorthodox Jukebox, ahead of Lorde's album Pure Heroine, and in the big award of the night, Record of the Year, Daft Punk, featuring Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers, trumped the Kiwi with their hit Get Lucky.
