Wednesday 05 September 2012
GQ’s prestigious Men Of The Year awards took place last night, with Bradley Wiggins, Dermot O’Leary and Gary Barlow all winning awards.
Katherine Jenkins makes her first red carpet appearance since David Beckham scandal
A host of famous faces graced the red carpet for the annual award ceremony, including Katherine Jenkins – who made her first appearance since she took to Twitter to deny rumours of an affair with David Beckham.
The singer opted for a floor-sweeping Stella McCartney dress with revealing side panels along with a messy up-do and minimal jewellery for the event.
Katherine came under scrutiny when she publicly denied rumours of an affair with the married father-of-four at the end of August.
Taking to her Twitter page, she wrote: 'Dear Twitter friends, I've read some horrible rumours on here &want u 2 know I absolutely deny I’ve had an affair with David Beckham.
'The rumours are very hurtful, untrue & my lawyers tell me actionable.
This resulted in David’s spokespeople having to action a statement also denying the rumours.
Gary Barlow walks the red carpet for the first time since his family tragedy
The ceremony also saw Gary Barlow make his first public appearance since the loss of his new-born daughter Poppy. Fellow guests cheered the X Factor judge on as he took home the ‘Outstanding Achievement’ gong, after being thanked for masterminding the Jubilee celebrations as well as his brave performance at the Olympics closing ceremony.
Friends of the 41-year-old, who shared a table with Take That bandmate Robbie Williams and pal James Corden, said: ‘Gary just wanted a really fun night out. It’s the first time he’s been out since everything happened.
‘He didn’t want the night to be about work and just wanted to have a real laugh with Rob and James Corden at his table.’
The Take That star kept his fans updated, uploading photos to his twitter page throughout the evening.
Who else was there?
Team GB at the GQ awards
Making the most out of their newly acquired celebrity status were a host of faces from Team GB, including gold medallists Bradley Wiggins, Greg Rutherford and Mo Farrah. Bradley Wiggins looked dapper in a double-breasted grey suit as he took home the Lifetime Achievement award while his wife went for a very apt Union Jack Vivienne Westwood dress.
But it wasn’t just the men that were celebrated, Lana Del Rey took home the Woman of the Year award. Representing the US, Lana debuted her new dark hair in a floor-length silk gown.

She told Closer: "I'm still so young so I'm not going to settle down any time soon. I'm just enjoying everything life has to offer."
And LA-based Lana told us she'd love to move to the UK in the future.
She said: "I've always loved the UK. When I wasn't famous, I used to come here to work on my music and everyone was so welcoming to me. It's a great place and now I have so many friends here, it feels like home."
Jessie J continued to show off her new girlie look as she wore a daring tuxedo-style dress, showing off her long legs and cleavage. The Voice judge kept her hair simple, steering away from the blunt fringe look we’re used to seeing on her, and her make-up minimal.
