Hunks are upstaged by Kate and Rita’s frocky horror show
IT was supposed to be an evening when all eyes were on the men.
But the women ensured they hogged the limelight as they arrived for the GQ Men Of The Year Awards last night.
Actress Kate Beckinsale appeared to have forgotten half of her dress. The red and black printed gown featured a plunging neckline and cutout on the right side. It also had one long kimono-style sleeve and a train.
Miss Beckinsale presented Vanity Fair star Tom Bateman with the award for Breakthrough Actor.
Pop star Rita Ora – known for her unorthodox fashion choices – also chose a strange outfit for the event, held at the Tate Modern in London. The 27-year- old singer wore a one-sleeved see-through gown over a corset, suspenders holding up sheer black stockings, and stilettos. She had her platinum blonde hair in a centre parting and sported heavy silver and black make-up.
Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman showed off her new hairstyle. The 46-year-old broadcaster has had the ends of her famous black locks dip-dyed blonde.
Some of the men did get a look-in, though. Hunky Bodyguard star Richard Madden, 32, looked suave as he posed on the red carpet in a black dinner suit and bow tie.
Prince Charles, 69, received the Lifetime Achievement Award for his philanthropy. Accepting it, he said: ‘There is nothing more satisfying than seeing the difference you can make to so many young people’s lives.’
