Jessie J In Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier – 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Jessie J In Vintage Jean Paul Gaultier - 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

What with all the daring necklines, thigh-high slits and sheerness going on at the GQ Men of the Year Awards held at The Royal Opera House on Tuesday (September 2) in London, England, Jessie J fitted right in on this red carpet.

The British singer, who has been taking the US by storm, was oozing sex appeal wearing a vintage Jean Paul Gaultier emerald-green gown with a draped plunging neckline and slit to the hip bone.

I’m not always a fan of her looks, finding her frustratingly inconsistent at times, but I love the sultry, not-try-hard vibe; plus, the styling, which included black Saint Laurent sandals and Stephen Webster jewels, allowed the dress to shine.

Hair- and makeup-wise, pretty damn flawless.

Pippa Middleton joined the star-studded mix at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

Going for all-out classic elegance, she sported a lovely blush-coloured, paillette-embroidered silk top and matching chiffon skirt by BOSS.

Metallic sandals, a grey clutch and a classic low bun polished off the refined look, although her shoes had me wishing for a more delicate, less obtrusive pair.

Jourdan Dunn joined fellow model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

Like Rita Ora, the leggy lovely debuted a striking Zuhair Murad Fall 2014 Couture creation, hers another ode to the sheer trend of the evening.

The black, body-con gown was the very epitome of drama, delivering sexiness in spades. The fashion game here was one of peek-a-boo, what with its fishnet-inspired detailing and strategically placed sequin panels that lightly grazed over her statuesque silhouette.

Statement rings were the only accessory required, alongside a sleekly tousled bob and a smoky eye, to complete the sultry vixen statement. After all, the dress did most of the talking.

Kim Kardashian was also in attendance at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

The reality TV star also worked the sheer trend, wowing in a fully custom-designed ensemble to collect her Women of the Year award.

Accentuating her famous curves, she wore an Atsuko Kudo black latex bustier-style bodysuit with a dramatic showpiece of a skirt: a Ralph & Russo Fall 2014 Couture corseted look that featured intricate gunmetal crystal detailing.

She accessorized with embellished Tom Ford sandals and a selection of diamond bangles, further enhancing the look with relaxed, pretty waves and a nude lip.

Cara Delevingne In Burberry Prorsum – 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards

Cara Delevingne captured plenty of stares at the 2014 GQ Men of the Year Awards, hosted in association with Hugo Boss at The Royal Opera House in London, England on Tuesday (September 2).

In keeping with the sexy occasion, the model made sure to show that the sheer trend is in no danger of extinction with a Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 lacy plunge gown worn with a gold pendant chain necklace.

Yes, it’s a sexy, racy statement; and, yes, it possibly could pass for a lace negligee, even when toughened up with black booties. But if anyone can brandish this sort of bold statement, she can.

While the dress should be the attention-grabber here, I’m having a hard time getting past Cara’s distracting vampire-esque makeup and, ahem, mouth accessory. The dress was daring enough as it is.

Love or loathe?
