The 2012 GQ Men of the Year Awards are an evening about honoring Hollywood’s outstanding men, but more than one leading lady managed to steal the spotlight from the boys with fierce fashions that night.
From form-fitting leather to sexy cutouts on stars like Diane Kruger in Cushnie et Ochs and Alessandra Ambrosio in Sally LaPointe, female guests stunned in looks showcasing their womanly assets. But even Rashida Jones, who nodded at the boys with a menswear inspired look, exuded a distinctly flirty flair by showing off her stems in shorts and spicing up a collar shirt with a touch of sequins.
Kruger, Ambrosio and Jones all went for bold black-and-white looks, but it was Brittany Snow in vintage YSL, Rihanna in Calvin Klein and newly single Jennie Garth who really stood out with red-hot dresses that showed off their curves.
Rihanna, who posed on the December cover of GQ nude, with a leather jacket and a strategically placed hand merely covering her modestly was slightly more covered up at the GQ Men Of The Year party at Chateau Marmont on Tuesday night.
However, the 24-year-old singer still raised temperatures by showing off plenty of leg in a red-hot red slip dress. The Diamonds star displayed acres of flesh in the scarlet number, which also featured a low-cut neckline.
Rihanna kept with the red-theme by wearing matching strappy stilettos.
Rihanna’s racy cover, which was released on Tuesday, reads ‘Men of the Year (And One Hot Woman’ and lists actors ‘Channing Tatum, Ben Affleck, Quentin Tarantino, Usain Bolt and the gang who put us on Mars.’
Alessandra Ambrosio, who walked in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion show last week, flashed a hint of her toned midriff in long-sleeve mini-dress with cut-outs at the side. It was a celebrity-studded events.
