2012 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Lets take a look at who took home a GQ award & who wore what at this uber stylish event.


Last night I had the incredible honour to attend the 2012 GQ Men of the Year Awards. The GQ Men of the Year Awards celebrates the country’s finest actors, comedians, sportsmen, artists, rock stars, fashion designers and creative forces in the Australian cultural landscape. It truly was a very special night with such an amazing vibe in the air. Ronan Keating, Guy Sebastian, Molly Meldrum, Jodi Gordan, Matt Moran…. just some of the many VIP guests that attended.

The Ivy Ballroom was the epicentre of style and glamour. As I arrived at the Ballroom I felt like I had arrived at Heaven, greeted by a sea of smartly dressed men in tuxedos and beautiful women in exquisite gowns. Chivas even set up an opulent bar serving delicious concoctions of yummyness. Pictured below is a glass of 25 year old aged Chivas – talk about aged to perfection.


Aussie actor Chris Hemsworth took home the main award “GQ Man of the Year”. Aussie actress Bella Heathcote, took home 2012 Woman of the Year and looked stunning in a blue lace knee length dress (see pic below). I was so thrilled to meet the amazing Molly Meldrum.
