Bella Hadid in custom Boss at the British GQ Awards: pretty or bland?


Here are some photos from last night’s British GQ Awards. This is not a comprehensive list by any means, these are just the photos/people I found the most interesting, and it says a lot about the event that Bella Hadid is my headliner (sorry not sorry). Bella won the Model of the Year Award at the event, and she actually looked really pretty in this custom Boss gown. Out of everyone, this was really one of my favorite looks.


Ashley Graham wore Tadashi Shoji. I love her but I don’t love this dress.


Kelly Rohrbach in a floral number… this doesn’t look like it fits her properly.


Ellie Goulding in Marchesa. The dress is fug and she needs to stop messing with her face.


Calvin Harris won Solo Artist of the year and he made an oblique reference to Taylor Swift when he said he’s been through “a lot this year.”

2016 GQ Awards

Here’s Amy Schumer and her boyfriend Ben. Her hair/makeup is awful.


And finally, here’s Chris Pine looking salt-and-peppery sexy.

    Bella needs to be more versatile. Models used to be chameleons (Coco Rocha, Daria)…nowadays it is only the dead stare.

    • doofus says:

      I was going to say…

      …does she do any “look” besides “dead” or “mannequin”?

      I mean, she’s pretty (kind of) but every pic I see of her is the same.

    • Michelina says:

      I find Bella Hadid to be very pretty, but boring as hell. It certainly doesn’t help anything that she looks like a carbon copy of Carla Bruni thanks to her nose job. I don’t see the point of having a model who looks EXACTLY like another model. Unfortunately her plastic surgery has taken away any originality she might’ve had.

  2. Zuzus Girl says:

    That woman is as dead-eyed as they come.

  3. Pants says:

    I love Bella’s look, but it wouldn’t kill her to smile. Chris Pine is my least favorite of the celebrity Chrises but he’s growing on me a little.

    • Ji-yun says:

      It probably would kill her, metaphorically, to smile. There are one or two pictures from the event where she’s smiling and it really distorts her face.

      I think it’s a side-effect of very extensive plastic surgery. A couple of procedures = no problem (see Susan sarandon for example). Lots of/too many procedures = a face that only looks “good” when at rest. Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are two others that also have this going on and it’s why you’ll only see them neutral or, at most, with a “smoulder”.

    I saw another story where they said she was excited to win. How could they tell? She’s a zombie.

  5. ninaG says:

    She’s a beautiful girl, she always looks overwhelmed though and it just reminds me that she’s very young.

  6. Marty says:

    Why does Bella Hadid always look like she’d at a party, and her boyfriend’s ex just walked through the door?

  7. Sigh... says:

    Ashley’s dress looks a tad bit too small (bunching at her waist, split looks like it’s not draping right) while Kelly’s dress looks a tad bit too big (waist looks boxy, like its not touching her body).

  8. spittair says:

    I love it! She’s hot, but that vacant look…

  9. KL says:

    I… just don’t get why Bella is a thing. Gigi I get; Bella I don’t get.

  10. INeedANap says:

    I would love it IN A COLOR. ANY COLOR.

    To borrow from T and Lo, that looks like old bras. Seriously, imagine how dramatic that would look in rich plum. Or change it up and try kelly green.

  11. Sarah says:

    I’m sorry i just can’t get past her nose.

    • doofus says:

      yeah, that’s the other thing about her that I don’t like.

      first is her dead expression, second is her nose.

      she is pretty but I wouldn’t pick her to model anything. except maybe sedatives.

  12. Margo S. says:

    I’m glad Chris pine has stopped dying his hair. Ellie Goulding didn’t look great before so the work she’s had done is I think a bit of an improvement.

  13. Marika says:

    Bella has a great figure, but I agree with people who say she should smile more.

    Calvin Harris actually talks about the Taylor Swift in the GQ interview. It seems he regrets the tweets after the break-up. I’m interested to read the whole thing.

  14. minx says:

    Dead eyed Bella.

  15. LaraK says:

    Both Ashley and Amy Schumer look pasty pale! What’s with the death mask look???

    I love Ashley, but this dress with that choker and the ghost makeup make her look like a corpse in a CSI: Las Vegas episode.

  16. serena says:

    Love Bella’s outfit, it really is gorgeous but I can’t look at her more than two seconds before I get annoyed at her dead-fish gaze. She’s so not interesting as a model, so bland, imo.

  17. Dani says:

    I love everything Ashley stands for but come one…does everything have to be low cut and revealing? She’s so beautiful and is so so so much more than just her boobs. I hate that we make women feel so close to nothing that the only valuable thing left about us is our body.

  18. Pandy says:

    We need to start ignoring Calvin Harris or whatever his name is. D lister. And petty. Not a good combo especially in a man!

  19. lizzie says:

    i’m going to catch hell but i can’t help but notice that amy “i’m not plus size – i wear a 6″ schumer makes an actual plus sized model look like she’s a size 2.

    • Denise says:

      I think she may have gained a bit. She should go for knee-length dresses instead of the minis she wears like a uniform. From the knee down her legs are good and it would make her look closer to that size 6.

    chris pine gets better every year. him embracing the grey hair is literally the best thing ever
