The 2015 GQ Men of the Year Awards was a huge success last night at Ivy. Thanks to Chivas Regal, the principal sponsor, I was lucky enough to score an invite.
The night celebrates men of outstanding character, style and talent across the sectors of film, music, sport, fashion, art and entertainment. (see the full list below)
Chivas Regal, honoured Australian rugby union star player, and proud equal rights campaigner, David Pocock, with the esteemed ‘Man of Chivalry’ Award. The ‘Man of Chivalry’ Award recognises those individuals who embody the strength, elegance and sheer humility to be true gentlemen in today’s rapid-fire world, whereby being a modern man of chivalry means standing tall on your beliefs and using your voice to influence at the highest level despite potential barriers or obstacles.
Pocock came to national attention earlier in the year when he took a stand in support of equality, and particularly marriage equality, by stating that until all Australians could marry and be recognised equally under Australian law, he and his fiancé would refrain from ‘tying the (proverbial) knot’.
