It might be a night that recognises the most influential and debonair men of the year, but Kelly Brook and Emma Watson were determined to make sure the ladies were very much in the spotlight too.
And the two girls couldn’t have contrasted more as Kelly brought some old school Hollywood glamour to the red carpet while Emma kept it youthful and funky at the GQ Man of the Year Awards tonight.
Miss Brook, 31, looked absolutely sensational in a long flowing white dress that clung to her curves and complemented her beaming smile and wavy long locks.
The wide smile didn’t leave her face as she posed for the cameras alongside her rugby player boyfriend Thom Evans who looked proud as punch to be on her arm.
The couple were followed into the ceremony by Harry Potter star Emma Watson, 21, who flaunted some punk rock glamour in a tartan prom dress which she teamed with a black leather jacket.
Looking fresh-faced in barely-there make-up, her short hair was slicked back behind her ears as she posed on towering black studded Christian Louboutin heels for the cameras, her black polished fingertips posed on her hip.
The two girls weren’t the only females demanding the flashbulbs’ attention.
Like Emma, Sophie Dahl also opted for tartan and arrived in a black and red shorted checked dress and a long black coat, her long legs peeking out from beneath the buttons.
Of course, no red carpet event would be complete without an abundance of Little Black Dresses and the ladies didn’t disappoint.
Kylie Minogue gave her younger counterparts a run for their money in her short corset-style dress and rocked the outfit up with leopard print peep-toed heels, big wavy hair and dazzling jewellery which she showed off once she had shed her big emerald green fur coat.
The Saturdays also wowed on the carpet showing us their new ‘grown up’ look.
