Inside last night's GQ Men of the Year party, celebs let loose at LA's Chateau Marmont. Rihanna, who celebrated being named the magazine's Obsession of the Year, made the rounds saying hi to guys like James Marsden, Frank Ocean and Jamie Foxx. She even posed for some silly photos with Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet. Eric seemed to be pretty popular at the bash, and also said cheese alongside Ali Larter and Rashida Jones. Revenge gang Emily VanCamp, Ashley Madekwe, Christa B. Allen, Connor Paolo and Joshua Bowman hung out too. Real-life couple Emily and Josh were too cute posing with another of their small-screen co-stars, Gabriel Mann. There were other fun celeb friendships blossoming. Aziz Ansari had a drink with Darren Criss, as James Marsden, Julianne Hough and Kate Walsh made the rounds. Lone Ranger star Armie Hammer stuck by the side of his wife, Elizabeth Chambers. Much more went down, so click through to see the photos.
GQ hosted their Men of the Year party at LA's Chateau Marmont last night. Ben Affleck was on hand to celebrate his honor after a big year that's included the release of his hit movie Argo and the birth of his third child, a son named Samuel. Ben shared the honor with Channing Tatum, who today was also named People's Sexiest Man of the Year. Channing wasn't able to attend the bash, but he was represented by his wife, Jenna Dewan. Rihanna earned the magazine's title of Obsession of the Year, and she swung by the Chateau in a hot red dress from Calvin Klein. Also out to celebrate with GQ was a Cushnie et Ochs-clad Diane Kruger, and a whole group from Revenge that included a Reem Acra-wearing Emily VanCamp, Joshua Bowman, Christa B. Allen and Ashley Madekwe, who was in Australia last week to attend the Melbourne Cup.
The annual event brought out plenty of stars to toast Ben, Channing and Rihanna. Adam Brody, Chace Crawford, Max Greenfield — another of People's hottest men of 2012 — and Seth MacFarlane mingled together. Alessandra Ambrosio, in Sally LaPointe, celebrated a week after the Victoria's Secret show with her fellow Angel Erin Heatherton.

Last night’s GQ Men of the Year Awards attracted some of Australia’s brightest stars to the Ivy Ballroom in Sydney. Veterans and newcomers of the entertainment industry gathered for the black tie gala to celebrate men — and one woman! — in different fields, with the highest honour, Man of the Year, going to Hollywood star Chris Hemsworth. Chris, who also fronts GQ’s December issue (on sale now), wasn’t able to pick up his award, but expressed his gratitude via video, saying, “GQ has been so supportive of me right from the beginning of my career and it’s an honour and a privilege to be acknowledged within their pages.”
Rising star Bella Heathcote was named Woman of the Year, and Callan McAuliffe, at age 17, is the magazine’s youngest winner, taking home Breakthrough of the Year. Other winners included Guy Sebastian for Solo Artist of the Year, Matt Moran for Chef of the Year, and Sam Sparro for Man of Style. The guest list was filled with actors such as Phoebe Tonkin, Jodi Gordon, Samara Weaving, Todd Lasance and Asher Keddie, models Jessica Gomes and Samantha Harris, as well as TV personalities Ruby Rose and Molly Meldrum, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Taylor Armstrong.
Actors Joel Edgerton, Alex O’Loughlin and Rachael Taylor each take the cover of the latest issue of GQ Australia. All three stars were special guests at last night’s GQ Men of the Year Awards at the Sydney Opera House, where they were presented with the magazine’s top honours: Joel for Man of the Year, Alex for Actor of the Year, and Rachael for Woman of the Year. Joel and Alex look handsome in their suits as Rachael’s topless turn strikes the perfect balance between sexiness and class. And as some of Australia’s top acting exports, they’ve all had great years — Joel celebrated the release of The Warrior and is currently working on The Great Gatsby, while Alex continues to find success on the hit show Hawaii Five-0. Rachael’s series Charlie’s Angels may have been cancelled, but her film Red Dog is one of the best Aussie releases of the year, and in her personal life, she’s found love and happiness with fellow actor Josh Lawson.
It was cold and wet in Sydney last night, but that didn’t stop some of Australia’s most talented stars — and a Breaking Dawn hottie — from walking the black carpet at the Opera House for GQ Australia’s Men of the Year Awards. As they made their way down the press line on the soaked carpet, we chatted to The Great Gatsby stars Callan McAuliffe and Joel Edgerton, who was named Man of the Year for 2011. We quizzed GQ editor Nick Smith on what he sees as the criteria for determining who will be Man of the Year: “Obviously he has to be successful in the last 12 months. We like a guy that’s still grounded, though, so [someone who] remembers he’s Australian. If you look over the years, we’ve had Hugh Jackman, Sam Worthington, Ryan Kwanten, they’ve still pretty much kept it real, and they remember where they’re from. That’s a big point. Also, I think, a little bit of style. We love a little bit of style.”
The British GQ Men of the Year Awards took place in London last night at The Royal Opera House and some big names (including Emma Watson and Charlize Theron) came out to help the guys celebrate! There seemed to be a love for lilac on the eyes with Kylie Minogue, Sophie Dahl and Pixie Lott all sporting the hue and the other big beauty trend was red lips, which always rock on the red carpet.
As we predicted, Ryan Kwanten was awarded the GQ Man of the Year Award last night at the Sydney Opera House. Ryan flew in yesterday and is heading back to the set of True Blood today and admitted that he still may have been a bit hungover from his 34th birthday celebration over the weekend in Chicago. Underbelly star Firass Dirani took out the TV Actor of the Year wearing an eggplant-coloured Gucci blazer, while Curtis Stone was awarded the Chef of the Year by his mum. Other winners included Josh Thomas, who won in the comedian category, Ben Mendelsohn, who won best actor and Mark Webber who took out the sportsman of the year award. Aussie stars on the red carpet included Lara Bingle, Jessica Marais, James Stewart, Jess McNamee, Chris Brown, Radha Mitchell, Nicole Trunfio, Claudia Karvan and Matt Preston.
