GQ Awards

There are a lot of red carpet events happening this month. Ahead of the Emmys, we had the 2016 GQ Men of the Year Awards. If you think that the event is only good for dapper men’s fashion, you’re wrong. The ladies represented on the red carpet. Black and off-white were popular colors, but there were lots of interesting variations from plunging gowns to short, fluffy ones. There was even a red dress that we couldn’t get enough of.

Take a look at the best-dressed celebrities at the 2016 GQ Men of the Year Awards:

1. Ashley Graham

Ashley Graham slayed it on the red carpet. It can be tricky to get  a plunging neckline and a thigh-high slit right, but she did. The cut of this dress is fantastic. The way Ashley styled it with a black choker also gives it more edge.

2. Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding went for an ethereal look at the GQ Awards with this short feathered dress. Her simple hair and makeup ground the fluffy dress, while the shoes add a bit more shine.

3. Sai Bennett

If you’re not familiar with Sai Bennett, this red dress is enough for her to be your new fashion crush. It’s glamorous and a bit Old Hollywood. She also makes a strong case for matching your makeup to your outfit.

4. Bella Hadid

Bella Hadid went for pure glamour at the event. The cut off the dress is fairly minimal, but it looks anything but boring thanks to the off-the-shoulder neckline and all of jewelry. Her long, straight hair is also as shiny as her jewels.

5. Amy Schumer

You can never go wrong with a LBD. Just see Amy Schumer’s look for proof. The asymmetrical neckline is different from your usual one-strap style. She gave her frock a slight retro edge with her sleek hair, and black and white eye makeup.

6. Gwendoline Christie

This colors in this printed dress do amazing things for Gwendoline Christie’s hair and complexion. The ruffle detail up the front is also very flattering.

7. Winnie Harlow

Model Winnie Harlow looks ready for the party in this blue dress. It’s a more casual look for a red carpet, but a great option for something like the GQ Awards. The mix of bandage elements and military is also very cool.
