The best looks from the GQ Men of the Year red carpet


Paul Mescal, Stormzy, Louis Theroux and Andrew Garfield were among the famous faces at the 2022 GQ Men of the Year (MOTY) event this week.

Held at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London on Wednesday (16 November), this year’s event replaced the traditional awards format instead with toasts to British GQ’s lead covers and other honourees.

During a candlelit dinner by Heston Blumenthal, toasts were raised by rapper Aitch and Little Simz, as well as actors Will Poulter and Mescal, and broadcaster Alex Scott.

Guests then moved over to The Pavilion for an exclusive House of MOTY party with curated DJ sets by Stormzy and a live performance from US rapper Jack Harlow.
