GQ Men of the Year 2010 Awards!!


On Monday November 22 The Westin Palace Hotel in Madrid was the set for the GQ men of the year 2010 awards. An evening full of intelligent, stylish, charismatic and talented men.

The most talked about appearance of the evening was actor Clive Owen, who received the award for Best International Actor.

The best male model of the year award went to Antonio Navas, wearing an amazing Tom Ford smoking. This Spanish top model is represented by Sight Management. In his speech Antonio was sure to thank GQ for their great effort and success in promoting the male fashion industry.

The only ‘man of the year’ award to be received by a woman was Clara Alonso for best female model.

A nice coincidence is that Antonio and Clara are currently starring in the Guess Underwear Campaign together.

After the photocall (see video here) and a pre-award cocktail, the ‘La Rotonda’ room of the Palace hotel opened up to the winners and guests of this event.

The award show started with some inspiring and entertaining words by GQ director Javier Fernandez de Angulo, ending his speech with something all GQ men have in common: they are men that dream and that always keep dreaming! Presenter of the show was Raquel Sánchez Silva, wearing an Óscar de la Renta dress.

And the winners are:

Best Filmmaker: Alex de la Iglesia

Best New Actor: Alberto Ammann

Prize for The Arts: Miguel Zugaza (Director of the renowned Prado Museum Madrid)

And last…. The award for best article goes to…(yeah..I wish). One thing I’d always like to do, here we go: Irene is wearing a Max&Co. dress, shoes of Jimmy Choo and a Givenchy bag that is not visible on the photo but was fabulous 😉
