The 2017 GQ Men of the Year Awards in association with HUGO BOSS, took place at the Tate Modern, Turbine Hall, in London.
Celebrating its twentieth anniversary, guests were welcomed with Laurent-Perrier Champagne and Copper Dog whisky cocktails. Canapes were provided by Social Eating House and Pollen Street House, which included: Guinness braised beef arancini with piccalilli puree, Loch Duart smoked salmon & salmon caviar, dill & cucumber cupcakes with dill oil, salt-baked beetroot & celeriac tartlet, and salt cod burger with kimchi.
The twentieth annual GQ Men of the Year Awards is held in association with luxury lifestyle group HUGO BOSS for the fifth year running. In addition to the long-standing award categories presented by the magazine and category sponsors, the event sponsor has again bestowed its own awards – the HUGO BOSS Most Stylish Man Award and the HUGO BOSS Woman of the Year Award.
The dinner menu, designed by Jason Atherton, began with tartare of Buccleuch Black Angus, beetroot, egg yolk, and jam horseradish followed by Ribble Valley chicken breast, truffle & leek dressing, roasted chicken fat mash and finished with a custard tart & rhubarb sorbet. To accompany dinner there was Berry Bros & Rudd Good Ordinary White and Berry Bros & Rudd Good Ordinary Claret.
In addition to the Awards dinner and ceremony, there was a very special performance by Ukrainian ballet dancer, model and actor Sergei Polunin.
The award winning actor, who joked about how he was voted Worst Dressed Male by the mag in 2013, wore a flamboyant tweed suit as he accepted the prize – earlier he was later forced to apologise for accidentally ending the event’s live stream.
Leading the glamorous ladies style at the 2017 Awards was Poppy Delevingne, 31, Anna Friel, 41, and Jourdan Dunn, 27. Poppy – who made her acting debut in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword arrived in her sheer haute couture Reem Acra gown with a number of embroidered stars across the chiffon bodice.
Offsetting the sheer fabric, her skirt flared out to the ground in a mass of grey and black tulle with matching ruffle accents and star embroidery.
