GQ Magazine in association with Tommy Hilfiger hosted the Men of New York Event 2012, on Thursday, the 29th of November at the 5th Avenue Flagship. A glittering number of stars graced the event to celebrate some of the finest men in New York. The GQ Men of New York event was held with the purpose of raising money to provide relief to the victims of Hurricane Sandy.
The stars seemed to be in quite a charitable mood for the event and donated profusely for the cause. With fundraising as the key aspect of this event, the crème de la crème of New York didn’t leave fashion behind. They arrived in their fashionable best and their pictures stand testimony to that fact.
Twilight star Peter Facinelli set the atmosphere for the evening with his tweet about helping New Yorkers pull through the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. He arrived dressed in a light grey trench coat, looking all dashing, which he later took off to reveal a darker grey fitted suit with a blue tie, making him look like the sexiest man in New York that evening.
Accompanying this hottie was another hottie, Jaimie Alexander, of “Thor” fame, Peter’s new arm candy. This budding romance seemed to be blooming gradually as the couple was all smiles enjoying the evening with each other. Jaimie Alexander looked splendid as she arrived dressed in a beige cocktail dress with a beige trench coat over it.
Also gracing the event was Victoria Secret Model Lily Aldridge. Lily decided to shed her sexy lingerie model avatar and opt for a more androgynous conservative look with a navy blue buttoned down shirt, black trouser, nude makeup with slicked back hair tied into the bun. Inspired by the theme of the event “Men of New York”, Lily chose a “masculine” look, so different from what we are used to seeing this lass in.
Lily Aldridge also seemed to have caught up with fellow model Jacquelyn Jablonski who went with a rugged winter evening look with a burgundy leather jacket donned over a white shirt and form fitting black trousers paired with a color coordinated clutch.
Lily seemed to be enjoying her evening with a highly social attitude. Besides catching up with many known faces, she also got herself acquainted with comedian and actor Aziz Ansari at the event and the two seemed to get along really well, laughing and sharing jokes through the evening.
The evening sure looked pretty splendid at the Men of New York event with the who’s who of New York gracing the Red Carpet. Trust our celebrities to really be there for civilians when it comes to charity fundraisers.
