GQ Men Of The Year Awards: Who Wore What

Last night marked the annual GQ Men of the Year Awards, which means another red carpet report on what socialites wear on a weekday night. But before that, here is a selection of the men, and woman, the classy lads magazine decided to honour.

This year the winners included James Corden for best TV personality. Deserved considering his US show is bringing everyone such regular joy. Blur won best band for some reason. Yes, we know they're an acclaimed act, but it'd be nice to see something other than what is now dad rock get a high profile honour. George Osborne, who is a Tory, won best politician. This is England. Lionel Richie got best icon and if you dispute that we'll challenge you to a duel. Sam Smith was honoured for best solo artist. That's nice for him and his ballads. Christoph Waltz got best actor. We'll allow that. For some reason Nic Pizzolatto, the writer of True Detective, won best writer. Let's just declare this the decade of reading women.

Oh, and Game of Thrones Emilia Clarke got a plaque for best woman.

There's Ronnie Wood with his third wife, theatre producer Sally Humphreys. Have to say, dark blue suits usually make me want to leave overpriced Irish bars and find a Londis on the cusp of off-licence closing, but this is a nice subtle shade.
