Partying With Lana Del Rey, Michael Fassbender, Kylie Minogue And Damian Lewis: Our Night At The GQ Awards 2012!
GALLERY >> GQ Men of the Year Awards 2012
The stars really came out last night at the annual GQ Man of the Year Awards. And, naturally, Grazia had a front seat for the whole shebang.
Kylie Minogue, Victoria Pendleton, Bérénice Marlohe, James Corden, Robbie Williams and, er, Boris Johnson, were just some of the stars who took to the stage, at the swish event held at the Royal Opera House in London.
Azealia Banks kicked off the show performing her hit [a target="_blank" href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3Jv9fNPjgk">212[/a] in front of Tracey Emin, Stella McCartney, Jessie J and Lana del Rey - who won Woman of the Year.
Comedians David Walliams and Jimmy Carr presented the awards, joking that Prince Harry was due to come but “didn’t have anything to wear.”
Olympic champ Mo Farah had a standing ovation as he jumped on stage to present the Icon of the Year Award to Robbie Williams. Robbie joked that fellow guest Gary Barlow, “better not get a better award than me.” Incidentally, Gary was awarded Outstanding Achievement.
And we were so excited see our favourite design duo Dolce & Gabbana pick up the award for 'Designers of the Year', presented to them by their D&G campaign star Monica Bellucci.
Hollywood heavyweights Harvey Weinstein, Olivia Munn, Chris Hemsworth and [a target="_blank" href="http://www.hbo.com/the-newsroom/index.html">The Newsroom[/a] and The West Wing writer Aaron Sorkin were also at the awards, though snuck out before the after-party.
There were, however, still a bevvy of hot talent partying until the early hours, supping Tanqueray Gin cocktails and champagne. Michael Fassbender, Dominic West and Dermot O’Leary hung out all night together (who knew they were such pals?)
Hot men, tasty drinks and Gold medallists? Sign us up for next year.
