The GQ Men of the Year Awards took place last night, with a list of winners as long as your arm, but who got it right and who got it wrong on the red carpet?

When it's black tie or a formal event, it can be hard to inject a bit of personality into your outfit, but at the same time you want to make sure that you don't just end up mixed in as one of the drones on the floor, dressed in a penguin suit with no imagination. 

That balance is a hard one to strike, but there were plenty of options on show last night on the red carpet as the great and the good gathered for the GQ Men of the Year awards. Jamie Dornan showed that you don't have to stick to the 'black' in black tie, while Peter Capaldi decided he didn't need the tie part either.

When it comes to pulling off a traditional look in style, Colin Firth gets full marks (as always), while Stanley Tucci's suit was one of our favourites of the night. Gerard Butler was also dressed incredibly well, while both Oliver Chesire and David Gandy managed to put together some modern takes on the classic tux, and it would be difficult to beat them when it comes to 'Best Dressed'.

As for those who could have done with taking one, last look in the mirror before walking out the door? Well, Lewis Hamilton's camo tux jacket and high tops just didn't work, while Pharrell chose to let his hat do the talking with a very casual outfit that might not have been his finest moment. He so often gets it right, but we have a feeling he might look back on this one and think that he could have thrown something a bit better together.
