Kim Kardashian’s Red Carpet Arrival:
Kim Kardashian made a stunning entrance at GQ’s Men of the Year celebration in Los Angeles, leading the star-studded arrivals on Thursday night.
Despite the controversy surrounding her cover on the men’s magazine’s special issue, Kim confidently walked the red carpet in a racy suede Chrome Hearts dress, showcasing her curves.
Controversy Over GQ Cover:
Kim faced backlash for covering GQ’s Men of the Year issue, with some branding it ‘dumb and super insensitive.’ Despite the criticism, she brushed it off, choosing a dress with a sexy low back, a halter neckline, and gothic cross-shaped embroidery.
Kim’s distinctive raven hair was replaced with a long, dirty blonde wig, complementing her sultry brown smokey eye and glossy nude lip.
GQ Men of the Year Awards:
The awards, held on Thursday night, honored individuals who have significantly influenced culture, fashion, entertainment, and sport in 2023.
Kim was recognized as Tycoon of the Year for her Skims menswear launch, sporting an androgynous suit and tie for the cover spread. The controversy sparked discussions online about GQ featuring a woman as one of the ‘Men of the Year.’
Fashion Highlights of the Evening:
Apart from Kim, fellow cover star Jacob Elordi and rapper Travis Scott also landed US covers this year. Jacob Elordi, unfazed by online chatter, arrived at the celebration in a boxy black pinstripe jacket, pants, and a pastel yellow shirt.
Other celebrities, including Olivia Jade, Paris Hilton, Olivia Rodrigo, Alessandra Ambrosio, Lorde, Megan Thee Stallion, Chloe Bailey, Rachel Sennott, and more, showcased their style at the event.
Red Carpet Fashion Statements:
The red carpet witnessed a display of glamorous fashion, with Olivia Jade donning a sequin jacket and maxi skirt, Paris Hilton in a sparkly gray sequin gown, Olivia Rodrigo in a flirty LBD, Alessandra Ambrosio in an angelic white dress with gothic flair, and more.
Each celebrity made unique fashion statements, adding to the elegance of the event.
A Night of Recognition and Controversy:
While the GQ Men of the Year celebration honored achievements across various fields, the controversy surrounding Kim Kardashian’s cover persisted.
Critics questioned the decision to feature a woman, despite previous female cover stars like Rihanna, Megan Thee Stallion, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, and Scarlett Johansson.
The red carpet also saw the presence of other notable figures, including Seth Rogen with his wife Lauren Miller, Henry Golding with his wife Liv Lo, Babyface with his new girlfriend Rika Tischendorf, YouTube star Emma Chamberlain, and more, creating a night filled with glamour, recognition, and discussions on inclusivity in the ‘Men of the Year’ title.
