If beautiful men in beautiful suits are your thing, then hold on tight.

So, what’s all the lowdown you need to catch up on we hear you cry? No worries, we’ve got you covered!

The whole event was hosted by the world’s coolest man, Samuel L Jackson, and thankfully, there were no snakes on the stage.

Everyone who was anybody was on the red carpet. From Strictly’s Claudia Winkleman and, to Radio 1 and X Factor’s Nick Grimshaw with a swish – if a bit servere – new hairdo, to the always-gorgeous Jourdan Dunn – THAT DRESS!

All the newlyweds were in attendance too, with Ronan Keating and wife Storm Uechtritz there and GQ fave Jim Chapman all loved up with yummy YouTuber wife Tanya Burr.

Sam Smith was all smart in a tux and his specs, fresh from the announcement that he had the honour of doing the James Bond theme for the upcoming theme, Spectre. The 23-year-old singer was snapped with fellow Brit buddies, musical duo Disclosure.

As Sam picked up the Ciroc Solo Artist award, owner of luscious locks and hat-wearing James Bay received the Breakthrough Musician award, while rock legend Keith Richards went on stage to get his aptly named Legend award.

From music to movies, American cutie Paul Rudd earned the title of the Leading Man award, and the Comedian award went to Will Ferrell. Well, he is KINDA a big deal…

And our very own British funnyman James Corden got the TV Personality award for cracking America with the Late Late Show and creating all the viral videos we could need to watch. If we could have him back in the UK soon though, that’d be grand thanks.

The Vertu Breakthrough Actor award went to Jack O’Connell, who was reunited with his former Skins co-star, Nicholas Hoult.

But what about the girls?! Well, Game of Thrones Emilia Clark won Woman of the Year.

Adonis David Gandy was Hugo Boss’ Most Stylish Man, J. J. Abrams was the Cultural Icon, the Politician award went to George Osborne, and speedster Lewis Hamilton won the Sportsman award (while sporting quite the new Strictly-worthy look).

Other winners from the night include Giorgio Moroder for the Inspiration title, Stuart Broad for Outstanding Achievement, Marc Newson for Creative Icon and the Editor’s Special award going to José Mourinho. Kim Jones picked up the Designer award with the Breakthrough Designer title going to Christopher Raeburn.

Phew! What a night!
