London Last Night
Celebrity Party | GQ Man of the year awards
We do love attending a good old awards show and the one we look forward to the most is the GQ Man of the Year show. It’s packed with fabulous dresses, fit men and plenty of champagne – what more could you ask for? This years show was the best we have attended for a very long time. You had opera singers, fashion designers, Take That, models and best of all, the Olympic athletes. Everyone looked super duper cool and groomed to perfection and our love of men in suits has just hit an all time high – we think the obsession is getting a bit out of hand now.
Opera singer Katherine Jenkins looked stunning in a Stella McCartney gown which showed off her new svelte figure. The Dancing with the Stars contestant has been hit with scandal recently after being accused of having an affair with David Beckham on Twitter. Both stars deny the claims, but Katherine said it has had an impact on her emotionally and said she has lost more weight because of the claims.
Fashion designer Stella McCartney looked fabulous in a black strapless jumpsuit and skyscraper heels. The British designer who arrived with husband Alasdhair Willis said she was very proud to be part of TeamGB fashion and that she would love to do it again for Rio. Stella’s hair looked super glossy, although she said she hardly washes it as it doesn’t get greasy and she just spritzes on some Percy and Reed dry shampoo. If it’s good enough for Stella and all that.
Olympic champion Victoria Pendleton also wore a Stella McCartney creation and showed off her enviable pins. The cyclist said she is taking some time out after years of training for the 2012 games and plans on spending more time with her partner and family. After seeing Victoria we think we may get back on that spinning bike – her legs looked amazing!
GQ favourite Kylie Minogue wore a thigh split strapless dress and showed off her fabulous legs and shoulders. Kylie, who said she has been in the studio may be bringing out some new material very soon. We heard a rumour that she may be doing another duet with Jason Donavan – we have our fingers and toes crossed. Especially For You part 2 – we can only dream.
Woman of the Year Lana Del Rey wore a vintage silk 50s dress and dyed her hair a darker brown for the awards. The American singer, who has had phenomenal success this year said she loves coming to the UK and is even thinking of buying a house here. The Video Games crooner had her trademark red talons on show and said the best red nail polish is YSL – we think they may have to start paying her to endorse their products soon.
The Voice judge Jessie J showed off a whole lot of leg in a tuxedo style dress. The Domino singer, who has signed up to do a second series of the talent show, said she is looking forward to the challenge but said there is still a lot of work to do before the show is perfect. Hmmm, we wonder if you and Will.i.am will play nice next time?
Team GB celebrated their award for Team of the year and although the guys had more clothes on than at the games, they scrubbed up pretty nicely – we think we may be developing a crush on Greg Rutherford. Sorry Louis!
Robbie and Mo couldn’t stop doing the ‘Mo-Bot.’ Awww, you guys look so cute.
Gary Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber celebrated Gaz’s Outstanding Achievement award. We heart the Barlow.
