OLIVIA PETTERNaomi Campbell and Kylie Minogue were among those in attendance GQ’s annual Men of the Year Awards is an undisputed highlight in the saturated sartorial calendar, bringing together some of the biggest names in music, film, fashion and beyond. Celebrating the achievements of those who have helped shape the cultural landscape in the past year, Wednesday evening’s proceedings saw the likes of Prince Charles, Rose McGowan and Harry Kane walk the red carpet, prior to taking home some of the most prestigious awards of the night. The guest list consisted of a suave roster of talents, who pulled no punches when it came to red carpet dressing. From Kate Beckinsale’s beguiling sass in Julien Macdonald to Chrissy Teigen’s disco-ready drapery, see who the real winners were at Wednesday’s GQ Awards
1. Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyVintage Versace never looked so good. The British model-turned-lingerie designer proved that a bondage-style neckline needn’t be anything other than classy when worn in the right way. Paired with a Bardot-style hairdo, Huntington-Whiteley looked like the ultimate Hollywood heroine.
2. Jeff Goldblum and Emilie LivingstonGoldblum’s effervescent charm is apparent even in his outfit choices, which are typically as buoyant as the man himself. This look is no different, which comes complete with a brassy golden blazer and zebra-print loafers, for good measure. Emilie Livingston’s multi-colored slip dress offsets the subtle quirks of her husband’s idiosyncratic ensemble.
3. Tom HiddlestonVelvet may be a frequently-worn fabric at fancy events, but Hiddleston elevates the material with his brooding stare and tousled hair, which channels a pleasing ‘I just returned from my gap year and wound up on a red carpet’ vibe.
4. Kate BeckinsaleThe Amazonian beauty of Beckinsale is undeniable, as this look proves. What this Julien Macdonald gown lacks in fabric, it makes up for in pure, unbridled sass. Who else could pull off the garish prints and daring cutaways without looking like a Coachella cliché gone awry? Few people spring to mind.
5. Naomi CampbellVersace, Versace, Versace. If anyone can pull off the space-age patterns on this dress with nothing but knee-high boots to lower the ‘look at me’ tone, it’s Campbell, who took home the award for fashion icon on the night, obviously.
6. Gemma ChanWhen it comes to red carpet dressing, few carry the infallible charm of Chan, whose elfin-like features and lithe frame are perfectly suited to this burgundy ensemble by Jason Wu.
7. Chrissy Teigen and John LegendHollywood’s dynamic duo radiated in tandem on the red carpet, with Teigen going full-blown sparkle in a silver tassel gown by Labourjoisie while her chart-topping musician husband opted for a blue velvet tuxedo by Hugo Boss.
8. Professor GreenOnce reserved for army pants and military garb, camouflage is back on trend for the impending autumn/winter season – and Professor Green knows what’s up. The British rapper donned an all-camo suit for the ceremony, worn over a classic black tee and a simple silver chain necklace.
9. Dua LipaThe British singer was the ultimate Saint Laurent muse in this leopard one-shouldered mini dress. Picking up the award for best solo artist, the 23-year-old is clearly making waves for both her musical and sartorial prowess.
10. Chris HemsworthThe Australian actor championed a James Bond-style aesthetic in this simple, but effective, black tuxedo, paired with a classic white collared shirt.
11. Kylie MinogueLooking like a water nymph born of Aphrodite, the iconic singer turned heads on the red carpet in a slick metallic gown by Versace that she quite rightly left undeterred with minimal accessories.
12. Chadwick BosemanThe ‘Black Panther’ actor was awarded the gong for international man, having stolen the hearts of fans and critics everywhere for his role in the highly-acclaimed superhero flick. On the night itself, the American actor donned a slick, off-white tuxedo, paired with some box-fresh white trainers for a casual vibe.
13. Olly AlexanderThe Years & Years lead singer might not have won any awards on the night, but he’s certainly deserving of an accolade for his sartorial verve as illustrated via this quirky ensemble, complete with low-rise trousers and a cropped feathered corset, naturally.
14. David GandyThe British model and fashion designer knows a thing or two about dressing himself and typically does so with aplomb. This outfit is no exception, in which the 38-year-old has embraced a 50 shades of blue aesthetic, pairing his navy tuxedo with a paler linen shirt that wouldn’t go amiss on a beach in the Caribbean.
15. Susanna ReidThe ‘Good Morning Britain’ host was a lady in red at last night’s ceremony, donning a scarlet satin gown that perfectly complemented her glowing – and enviably ageless – complexion.
16. Johnny MarrThe former Smiths frontman took home one of the most prestigious awards of the night for lifetime achievement. In true rock n’ roller style, the English musician opted for a stiff leather biker jacket, providing a splash of panache to his otherwise fairly monotonous ensemble.
17. Donatella VersaceNaturally, the inimitable Italian fashion designer donned a flamboyant gown from her eponymous label for the evening, which, in true Donatella fashion, was a cacophonous clash of gaudy colours and textures.
18. Laura WhitmoreThe Irish presenter is no stranger to a red carpet affair as she proved on Wednesday evening, donning a velvet off-the-shoulder cocktail dress by British designer Erdem – a firm favourite among the royal family.
19. Daniel KaluuyaThe ‘Get Out’ star fixed up and looked sharp on the red carpet in an Aegean blue suit before picking up the prestigious award for best actor.
20. Jorja SmithBefore taking home the award for breakthrough solo artist, the British singer sparkled in a deep violet mini dress by Versace paired with a simple pair of studded stilettos.
21. Rita OraDressed to the nines in a sheer off-the-shoulder gown by British couture house Ralph and Russo, Ora struck a sharp silhouette. The singer-turned-TV presenter added a splash of sartorial salaciousness to her look via visible stockings and suspenders: ooh la la, indeed.
22. Isla FisherIf you’re going to wear couture, you might as well wear it to the GQ Awards, where the dress code is as fluid as it is eclectic. Opting for an all-black Alberta Ferretti gown, the Australian actor’s vermilion locks took centre stage, providing a healthy splash of colour to her ensemble.
23. ZendayaPurple and yellow make for a perfect colour storm, as Zendaya demonstrates in this Ralph and Russo gown. The 22-year-old actor looked far beyond her years in this sophisticated silhouette.
24. Rose McGowanWho knew that head-to-toe tin foil could work in jacket form? Evidently, as the American actor shows, it can create quite the statement, particularly when paired with the stripped bare – and slightly 80s – aesthetic of McGowan’s platinum buzzcut.
25. Erin O’ConnorOnce a supermodel, always a supermodel. O’Connor is someone who really could wear a bin bag and make it look like couture. However, despite her unique sartorial capabilities, the British model decided not to be quite so subversive on this occasion, choosing to elevate a simple black trouser, white shirt look with a stunning floral overcoat by Erdem.
