The GQ Men Of The Year Awards is one of the most glamorous events on the calendar, with an eclectic mix of icons, superstars & tastemakers celebrating the inspirational men and women of the last 12 months.
The GQ Men of the Year Awards 2018, now in its 21st year, took place at the Tate Modern in London and celebrates the men and women who shape the world’s cultural landscape over style, politics, entertainment and sport.
At this year’s awards guests enjoyed canapés and a three-course dinner by Michelin-star chef and GQ Food and Drink award winner, Paul Ainsworth, alongside a selection of whisky cocktails provided by Haig Club. Known for his bold flavours and taking advantage of the best produce Cornwall has to offer, Ainsworth’s dinner began with Cornish gin-cured salmon, followed by a main course of aged soy-glazed ox cheek and finished with a vanilla panna cotta with strawberries, hibiscus, honeycomb and hazelnuts.
To compliment the menu, Haig Club served stylish cocktails such as the Haig Clubman Boulevardier (Haig Clubman, Belsazar Rose Vermouth, Italian bitter aperitif, orange twist) and the Haig Club X GQ Cooler (Haig Club, elderflower, Fever-Tree Ginger ale, fresh cucumber).
These are the very worthy winners of 2018, including Prince Charles, Rose McGowan and many more.
Johnny Marr, John Legend, Dua Lipa, Olly Alexander, Paul Weller and Jorja Smith were among the music artists who won prizes. Legend and Marr also performed at the event.
The Smiths co-founder Johnny Marr received the Lifetime Achievement Award, John Legend was named Hugo Boss Most Stylish Man, Dua Lipa was given the Solo Artist Award, Olly Alexander was honored with the Live Act Award, Paul Weller received the Songwriter Award, and Jorja Smith was named Vero Solo Breakthrough Artist.
