There was a blaze of publicity when the GQ Men of the Year awards were presented for the 15th time at Berlin’s Komische Oper, with prize winners the likes of Kylie Minogue, David Beckham or Jean Paul Gaultier in attendance. Kontrapunkt, acting for the third time as the lead agency, was in charge of staging this evening of style and glamour.

Joko Winterscheidt hosted the show with charm and wit. Musical highlights were the performances by Anastacia, Tom Odell and Robin Thicke, with the latter winning the Music International Award. Götz George, Germany’s actor legend, was honoured for his lifetime achievements. The after-show party saw more than 1,000 guests celebrating until the early hours of the morning.
