Last night in Sydney, GQ magazine played host to some of the world's most famous models at the GQ Men of the Year Awards. Aussie beauty Jess Hart (who took out Woman of the Year) kept it typically relaxed, while The Face host Naomi Campbell opted for a soft, smooth blow-dry. Nicole Trunfio rocked a cool side-braid — see all the up-close pictures now.
Matthew McConaughey, Michael B. Jordan, James Van Der Beek, and more handsome hunks stepped out for the GQ Men of the Year Party in LA on Wednesday. Matthew was joined by his wife, Camila Alves, at the gala, which celebrated the actor and his fellow featured men — including Will Ferrell and rapper Kendrick Lamar — as they were honoured for defining the past 12 months with their irresistible charm, talent, and style. Fruitvale Station star Michael B. Jordan cut a dapper figure in a bright blue jacket and showed off his sexy smile while hitting the red carpet. Though his That Awkward Moment co-star Zac Efron was expected to attend as well, news broke earlier in the day that the actor suffered a fall at his home and had to get his jaw wired shut. Instead, Michael linked up with Pharrell Williams, Andy Samberg, and Glee stars Matthew Morrison, Darren Criss, and Chord Overstreet.
While the party was rife with good-looking guys, there was no shortage of sexy ladies; Chelsea Handler, Amy Poehler, and Lupita Nyong'o all walked the carpet alongside their male counterparts. And though one of GQ's cover stars, Justin Timberlake, was absent from the event, he and wife Jessica Biel were on hand for the private dinner that preceded the awards in NYC on Monday night. The couple posed for photos together while Justin was toasted as the guest of honor by GQ editor Jim Nelson. The singer specifically earned the title "#Hashtag of the Year" due to his being a nonstop trending topic in 2013 and graces the cover of the annual issue as well. In the accompanying interview, Justin opened up about his idea of being cool, saying, "I'm not cool. Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad."
Some of the most handsome men in the world gathered up in London yesterday for the annual British GQ Men of the Year Awards. Top honorees included designer Tom Ford, who was given his spiffy trophy by none other than pal Justin Timberlake; Emma Watson, who showed off her midriff while chatting with Tom Hiddleston; and Dan Stevens, who had a mini Downton Abbey reunion with former co-star Laura Carmichael (aka Lady Edith) while chatting with friend Eddie Redmayne and his girlfriend, Hannah Bagshawe. Meanwhile, Justin's buddy Pharrell Williams played the social butterfly while mingling between Russell Brand, Samuel L. Jackson, Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley and Elton John. The bash wasn't a good night for plus ones as Justin's wife, Jessica Biel, stayed home and Suki Waterhouse took a solo trip down the red carpet without her handsome man, Bradley Cooper.
Emma Watson made a bold fashion statement in a belly-baring Balenciaga ensemble at the British GQ Men of the Year Awards in London today. The popular actress received the GQ Woman of the Year honour, and she was joined at the Royal Opera House by a host of other stars who also walked away with awards. Her good friend Eddie Redmayne received the Breakthrough Award, while other honours went to Pharrell Williams for Performer of the Year, Tom Ford for Designer of the Year, and Michael Douglas for Legend of the Year. Justin Timberlake, who was the main man at last week’s MTV VMAs, was on hand for presenting duties, saying, “I don’t pop Molly, but I rock Tom Ford,” in reference to Jay Z’s track “Tom Ford” when he took to the stage to bestow the award to the designer. Even though the event was mostly about the guys, there were plenty of beautiful women at the proceedings, including Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Rita Ora, Alexa Chung and Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.
Last night’s GQ Men of the Year Awards attracted some of Australia’s brightest stars to the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney. Veterans and newcomers of the entertainment industry gathered for the black tie gala to celebrate men — and one woman! — in different fields, with the highest honour, Man of the Year, going to Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth. Chris, who also fronts GQ’s December issue (on sale now), wasn’t able to pick up his award, but expressed his gratitude via video, saying, “GQ has been so supportive of me right from the beginning of my career and it’s an honour and a privilege to be acknowledged within their pages.”
Rising star Bella Heathcote was named Woman of the Year, and Callan McAuliffe, at age 17, is the magazine’s youngest winner, taking home Breakthrough of the Year. Other winners included Guy Sebastian for Solo Artist of the Year, Matt Moran for Chef of the Year, and Sam Sparro for Man of Style. The guest list was filled with actors such as Phoebe Tonkin, Jodi Gordon, Samara Weaving, Todd Lasance and Asher Keddie, models Jessica Gomes and Samantha Harris, as well as TV personalities Ruby Rose and Molly Meldrum, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong.
We saw more than one stand-out beauty look at the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night, but new bride Jodi Gordon looked particularly amazing in aqua. We'll be dreaming about her beachy waves for weeks to come, but it was her deep bronze tan against the crisp blue of her frock that really brought her look together. We love pairing out favourite aqua and turquoise nail polish with self tan — it's a dream combo and you'll get comments, lots of them.
The cream of Australia's celebrity and modelling scene hit the carpet for the GQ Men of the Year Awards last night in Sydney. Newly married Jodi Gordon was a vision in turquoise with beachy waves, while our resident vampire and ultimate girl crush Phoebe Tonkin sizzled with a bronzed body and minimal makeup. Australia darling Bella Heathcote (who was named Woman of the Year) showed off her incredibly shiny hair, and Ruby Rose brought the wet-look back.

Whilst the GQ Men of the Year Awards are usually focused on the gentlemen, we have to admit we're slightly more interested in what the ladies wore to last night's chic soirée at the Opera House in Sydney. By the looks of the red carpet, stars stuck to an elegant dress code, donning ladylike frocks — like the Alex Perry worn by Sharni Vinson, the sexy-but-still-chic Dolce & Gabbana number worn by Megan Gale and Rachael Taylor's flawless Dion Lee LBD. The guys looked good too — with the Edgerton brothers, Kellun Lutz and Nick Smith (both suave in Burberry) and Jodhi Meares' better half Alex O'Loughlin opting for smart cocktail suits on the red rug.
