GQ Awards: The Best Dressed Was…
Last week saw some of the worlds most fashionable personalities gather at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden for the annual GQ Men of the Year awards. This year the magazine teamed up with fashion giants Hugo Boss to put on the awards which act as a celebration of the very best in popular culture with awards ranging from those for the best radio personality to accolades for art.
The red carpet was absolutely jam packed with the planets most beautiful people and despite the awards being primarily about the men, it was the ladies that truly stole the show.
Rosie Huntington Whitely wowed in a strappy, knee length, white Versace gown, which showed off her enviable figure amazingly.
Fellow Brit, ‘It girl’ Alexa Chung opted for a silver long sleeved Carven number teamed with her trademark flicked eyeliner and a slick of red lipstick.
Emma Watson showed that she has truly put the days of geeky Hermione behind as she was seen in an opinion splitting Balenciaga crop top ensemble. Although a very different look for the fashion conscious actress, it can’t be denied that she oozed sophistication.
The fashion wasn’t reserved for the ladies however, with the men showing just as much style prowess on the red carpet. Actor and all round British heartthrob Eddie Redmayne ditched the trusty tux in favour of a grey Gucci suit in a very fine tartan. Fellow actor Douglas Booth opted for a midnight blue velvet tux from Burberry.
As for the winners, Radio 1 Breakfast Show presenter Nick Grimshaw bagged the Radio Personality award while Eddie Redmayne went home with the award for Remy Martin Breakthrough for his role in Les Miserables. Other winners included Tom Ford who took home the Designer award. It was a good night for British fashion also as Jonathon Saunders won Breakthrough Menswear Designer Brand. The ladies weren’t left out of the awards proceedings as artist Tracey Emin was awarded The Serpentine Gallery GQ Art Award and Emma Watson took home Woman of the Year.
