GQ Men of the Year Awards 2011

Posted on September 07, 2011

Darlings, it was the GQ Men Of The Year Awards at The Royal Opera House in London, England. The men all looked fine and the women… well, some of them clearly dressed for a roomful of men. Let’s assess.

 

Abigail Clancy

Abigail’s taking no chances. She wants the Men of the Year to know her intimately without ever speaking a word to her. Very classy. Audrey Hepburn lives.

 

Alexandra Burke

When will fashion designers learn that you really can’t do upscale tie-dye? It’s a kindasorta interesting gown but it’s mostly an eyesore. Too much draping and extra fabric up top.

Benedict Cumberbatch

It’s so weird to see him with red hair. If you haven’t seen his Sherlock Holmes, we urge you to do so. Last we checked it was on Netflix streaming. He looks good but – are you ready for this? Sitting down? HIS PANTS ARE TOO SHORT. Can you believe we just typed that after years of telling male stars their hems are too long? You can’t do the high-water hem with a loose-cut pant like that. Technically, you can, but you look inelegant. People think we advocate too much for the shorter hem and assume we think every man should wear the English cut of pant with the high hem. That’s not the case. We believe that a man’s pants should have a break over the shoe. We just don’t believe that a man’s pants should have multiple breaks running halfway up to the knees, which is how a lot of American men wear their pants.

Bradley Cooper

Those are some mighty big lapels and that is some mighty orange skin. Not a fan of double-breasted tuxedos but he looks good.

Charlize Theron in Roland Mouret

Ladies, every man wants a gal who looks like an elephant from the waist down. Little tip from us.

Dizzee Rascal

Shiny tuxedo, leather lapels (!!!!) and too-long pants. This is bad, kittens.

Emma Watson in McQ

We’ve been urging her to break out of her twee shell and this looks like an attempt to do so. It’s the Emma Watson version of “hardcore.” Meaning, it’s a typically adorable party dress, but the punk-inspired plaid and the motorcycle jacket are supposed to make her look edgy. Well, she doesn’t. But she does look cute.

John Legend

You have wounded us, John Legend. You have a reputation for being a finely turned-out man and yet here you are stuffing your shirt and your junk into a pair of pants that are clearly too tight in the waist. Worse, you paired said pants – said plaid pants – with a tuxedo jacket. A tuxedo jacket is not a sports coat. It’s meant to be worn with tuxedo pants. To be honest, it doesn’t look like that jacket fits all that well either. And gentlemen, when you are wearing a tuxedo and standing, your jacket should be buttoned at all times. Again: a tuxedo is not a sports coat.

Kylie Minogue in Dolce & Gabbana

Kylie, we love ya, but you definitely look like you’re working this side of the street.

Leona Lewis

We’re not sure about the fringe skirt, but the lady certainly knows how to work her looks. White dress, red accents, big hair, no jewelry (because she doesn’t need it).

Sophie Ellis Bextor

The dress is cute, but everything that’s happening below that hem is painful. The tights and shoes don’t go with the dress and they take it straight into juvenile territory.

      I’ll say something based on what I have learned from TLo:
      The break on his pants appears to be good.
      He should have buttoned his jacket before posing for pictures.

    I COMPLETELY AGREE on the Sherlock Holmes comment for Benedict Cumberbatch — wonderful, wonderful series and we are looking forward to season 2 in the next few months hopefully. Season 1 is basically 3 little mini series at hour and a half each and we were so hooked we watched all 3 in a row!

    And he does look a bit odd without his dark hair…

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Breda Smith

      Same here! I’m sort of insanely picky when it comes to film adaptations of books I love, but Sherlock is kind of amazing. Their Holmes – and Watson and Lestrade, wonder of wonders – is pitch-perfect in a way that I’ve actually never seen done.

        Ahem, Jeremy Brett??

        • Anonymous

          I love Benedict’s Sherlock as well, but Brett is definitive.

    • Anonymous

      I love me some Gingerbatch! Also I cannot praise the BBC version of Sherlock enough – Benedict is amazing, Martin Freeman is brilliant, Rupert Graves could have his own entire show as Lestrade and let’s not forget Mark Gatiss as a fantastic and slim Mycroft Holmes.

      On topic – The Men: I think Benedict would look perfect if his pants were a skoosh longer. Bradley as well if his skin was the color of a person instead of a muppet and John Legend is making me sad.

      The Ladies: Emma Watson looks adorbs and the rest of them look horrible.

      This is his natural hair color, though!  He is a ginger by design.

    Inexplicably I’m in love with the concept of plaid tuxedo pants.

  • scottyf

    The Anna Wintours of the blogging world T&Lo said…
    “We believe that a man’s pants should have a break over the shoe. We just don’t believe that a man’s pants should have multiple breaks running halfway up to the knees, which is how a lot of American men wear their pants.”

    I was always taught that a pant hem should basically start at the tongue and taper at an angle to the heel. Does anyone have an idea of whether that is  de rigueur, or if not, what is?

    And John Legend is just happy to see me. In the wrong outfit, but still…happy…to…see…me.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      That was the paradigm I was raised with as well.  Slight decline to the hem towards the back of the foot, creating a smooth transition from the shoe to the leg with a minimal break.  I’ll let you keep John if I can keep Bradley, also not in those clothes.

    • http://www.GiftedCollector.com Nancy Abrams

      Not only are Bradley’s pants the correct length with a perfect break, his shirt cuffs are showing just the right amount! This shouldn’t be so exciting, but most of the suit-wearers on the red carpet have jacket sleeves that are too long so that no shirt cuff is exposed. It looks somehow borrowed and/or unfinished that way.

      David Arquette, of all people, was on Letterman and was dressed the way grown men used to dress. Perfectly tailored. Dave kinda made fun of him for having his initials embroidered on his shirt cuff. Were those monograms the reason part of the cuff was supposed to appear below the jacket sleeve?IAMSOBZ

        A fashion historian would be much better able to accurately address the cuff issue, but I believe you are correct. I think it might have begun somewhere around the 16th century in Europe?

    Wow, some serious slut here. 
    Emma can’t do edgy. She just can’t. If the day ever comes when she does look edgy I’ll be worried. Her outfit is cute as hell.
     I don’t mind the tie-dye gown at all. I like the idea, at least, that some of the blue zaps are supposed to peek out from the folds. 
    Your elephant comment provoked a snort loud enough to startle my sleepy dog. 
    And I don’t know how so many good looking guys manage to look so blah. 
    But as RC parades go, this one wasn’t as painful as some.
    But where’s Fergie?

    Does anyone else watch “How I Met Your Mother”? There is an episode where they talk about sex acts, like Old King Clancy- “It’s like a Sacramento Turtleneck but with maple syrup.”
    So when I saw the lovely miss Amanda Clancy (whoever she is), naturally, I thought of that episode. Hehe.

  • Sobaika Mirza

    Emma Watson looks seriously pissed off.

        Pissed AND tired? Not a good combination. However, I do love the look. I suppose it just wasn’t her day.

    • Barbara Woodruff

      I don’t think she’s pissed off. The way she’s standing looks like she needs to pee. That scowl is her wondering how long this is all going to take and where the bathroom is.

  • http://twitter.com/bredalot Breda Smith

    Can we also talk about the fact that Emma Watson appears to have darkened her hair? I think it looks awesome. I hated the pixie cut because it sort of erased her face, but I think the dark brown provides just enough contrast that it works. But while I love that dress, it also kind of looks like she ought to be going to a “Scotsmen of the Year” party instead.

    I’m looking forward to seeing Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, for more Cumberbatch as well as Firth, Oldman etc.

    Abbey Clancy is a pain, typical WAG. Just because you model lingerie doesn’t mean you have to all the time!
    I quite like Alexandra Burke’s, it’s a bit different, and I like Emma Watson’s outfit as well.
    Charlize Theron, it’s not working but again, it’s something different.
    Kylie – can do better! Its time Dolce & Gabbana stopped trying to do what Gaultier does much better.
    Leona Lewis – best of this lot. 
    Sophie Ellis Bextor – disappointing, she can also do much better.

    More to come? You’re going to hate Daisy Lowe’s frock on every level :) but I liked it. And the Saturdays looked like girls out on a hen night whom you’d move pubs to avoid!

    “Very classy. Audrey Hepburn lives.”  [Major coffee snort] Thanks for that one, TLo!

    I love Sophie’s dress–but that’s because I wore a lot of dresses just like it in the 1960s. And I had the good sense not to wear them with violently clashing tights and silly shoes.  Change those to opaque tights and a cute kitten heel and she looks darling–although not appropriate for a black tie event.

    The Boys.  The red hair on Benedict Cumberbatch (what a great name!) threw me too, since I’m a big fan of the NEW Sherlock Holmes, but he looks good…until you get to the flood situation. All the rest: Not so much. John Legend could have carried those plaid pants off if everything he wore had been a size larger and he had kept his tuxedo jacket buttoned.

    Emma looks cute (although washed out), but the clear winner here is Leona Lewis, who looks amazing.  I hate any fringe that isn’t attached to a suede Western jacket, but I hardly even notice it here. Mesmerized by the red and the good fit.

    Dear Tom and Lorenzo,

    When you say, “When will fashion designers learn that you really can’t do upscale tie-dye?”, much as it pains me, I must disagree.

    Tie-dye is a subset of shibori, and there are some fabulous, high fashion examples of the technique out there that would rock a red carpet.  Some examples for your consideration:

    Not all shibori fashion looks like a flower child fertility robe.  Although I do agree that the piece Alexandra Burke is wearing has a “Ladies who Lunch” vibe.

    I think Charlize looks fabulous. Nice to see someone who *wasn’t* blatantly dressing for the leering men (and interesting that you critique her for not dressing for the men, while calling others out for dressing like hoochiemamas).

    Kylie can take slutwear and make it look classy, because she’s Kylie. Aaliyah could do that too, god rest her soul.

    Benedict Cumberbatch is the name of the dreamy Lord in my fancies….with cute glasses. That he also played Sherlock Holmes (my favourite literary character) is just icing on the geeky cake.

    Benedict Cumberbatch is so hot, but the hair color is freaking me out. Can’t wait until Sherlock starts again. I think Charlize Theron looks great. Her legs are so thin, the extra-flowy fabric doesn’t make her look big to me, just, um, flowy. Leona Lewis looks great. All the men were out but Cumberbatch. I don’t care if his pants were too short.

  • http://twitter.com/vintagegoddess just julie

    Poor Benedict.
    Finally here and his trousers are too short.
    I thought he looked quite dapper in his new McQueen suit.
    For him this is really good, his fashion choices (epecially his footwear) have been very questionable in the past.
    He is normally ginger, but even that hair is a bit light for him, it is for Parade’s End which begins filming now.
    (yes I know way too much about Cumberbatch)

    • Anonymous

      He’s been looking better since Sherlock. (Hey, perhaps TLo could devote some of their “spare time” to a review of the costuming in that all-too-mini series.  Still streaming on Netflix; PBS will run the next 3 shows in May. The Suits! The Coat! The Scarf! The Purple Shirt! And that’s just Sherlock.)  

      The previous day, he was in Venice for the festival showing of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Accompanied by the rest of the stellar cast–looking sharp on the red carpet after a slightly alarming showing for the photo call.

      (Heh.  I read the Parade’s End tetralogy after the series was announced.  Cumberbatch is playing Christopher Tietjens, described as fair haired with some premature white hair–26 years old as the story begins.  Heredity or the effect of his hose-beast of a wife?)

          I think they were “boating” shoes, with rubber soles.  In Venice, the stars do not arrive in limos….

          At least he tried. Some others in the group looked rather seedy, although they all cleaned up for the Red Carpet.  I’m fairly sure we’ll be seeing a lot of these guys during this Awards Season.

            Benedict is a very “safety” first kind of guy.
            Which makes me happy. That way I don’t have to worry about him having a horrible motorcycle accident (I worry…. constantly) and we get to enjoy him in bike leathers.

    Wow–I would not have recognized Benedict Cumberbatch if you hadn’t identified him. Is his real hair color red? He looks far better as Sherlock Holmes (and I second TLo’s recommendation–if you haven’t see his Sherlock, you are in for a treat).

      He is naturally a red head, though he was a blond baby (obsessed? who me?)

      I like the name Benedict Cumberbatch.  It sortof rolls off the tongue.  It’s fun to say over and over really fast.  But I hate his high water pants.   Maybe he spilled something on his pants in the limo and he exchanged pants with his shorter driver.   Love this Sherlock though.

    Sophie’s blue nails are hiddy.  What’s up with the first chick in black panties and a swimsuit cover-up?  Just because they are men, doesn’t mean that they necessarily like you to look like a skanky tart.   I disagree with the Charlize assessment.  I love that shirt and the pants look like a long skirt.  I like the pants.  But I also like elephants a lot.

    Sophie Ellis Baxter…whoa where did they dig her up from…I can’t focus on an outfit at a time when an actual blast from the past surfaces. This somewhat goes for Charlize. The fact theat an actual celebrity is at this function, I can’t musch speak on what they are wearing. Bradley Cooper is over doing his stand. He looks like he has to take a piss or a dump and its stuck in his chest. At least he is pretty, I guess.

      So just what makes Charlize Theron an ‘actual celebrity’ over and above others there?

        For me, it’s the last 15 years of the “IT” Factor in Hollywood. I failed to mention Kylie, but that actually kinda goes with one of my complaints in the new “IT” crowd. Things are, in my eyes, a homogenized glamour. When I scroll down these photos there is a wash that is so overwhelming. The two figures that stood out were the images of Charlize and Sophie Ellis Baxter. Everything is more of the same. Those two, to me, are “actual celebrities” by default of image based on something iconic in character, not in branding.

    There is too much to say…I’m overwhelmed…I don’t know where to start…Benedict Cumberbatch sounds like an alias in a Steve Martin movie,
    And the girl in the white dress does too need jewelry.
    And the girl in the tie dye dress looks classier than any of the others.
    And Kylie M. should only go out in costume going forward. It’s why Madge has been wearing those sunglasses. You can’t look at her or Kylie or Gaga (etc.) without thinking ‘showtime!’

    There’s a lot of really offensive red lipstick on the red carpet and Leona Lewis is sporting some. I hate those “you can see them from space” lips. I’m very sad that the usually gloriously glowing goddess Charlize Theron looks like a droopy little elephant. Aw, Char.
