The 24th annual GQ Men Of The Year Awards in association with BOSS took place in the Turbine Hall of the Tate Modern in London this week, with a plethora of stars and everyday heroes hitting the red carpet to celebrate some of the biggest and boldest figures in culture, media, fashion and sport who have helped shape, enrich and, in some cases, save our lives over the course of the past 12 months.
Guests in attendance included Idris Elba, Maya Jama, Raff Law, Emma Corrin, Regé-Jean Page and Arlo Parks, each of whom brought their own unique sense of style and swagger to the red carpet.
Big winners on the night were Harris Reed for Breakthrough Designer, Noelle star Kingsley Ben-Adir for Breakthrough Actor, Game Changer Dame Vivienne Westwood, and alternative rock sextet Wolf Alice who were named Best Band. Recipients of special awards included Sir Anthony Hopkins, who was named GQ Legend, and national heroes Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert and Dr Catherine Green who were acknowledged for their efforts in creating the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
