Kim Kardashian West heaped praise on her husband Kanye West as she picked up the GQ Woman of the Year award last night (02.09.14).
The reality TV star took to the stage at the GQ Men of the Year Awards in London to insist the rapper was the reason she had won the accolade because he makes her feel so special every day of her life, but she was less than impressed with magazine Editor Dylan Jones forgetting the “West” in her name.
Upon accepting her prize, she told the star-studded audience: “It’s Kim Kardashian West.”
She continued: “I want to thank GQ for making me Woman of the Year, and my husband for making me feel like woman of the year every day.”
Kim and Kanye flew into the UK yesterday ahead of the ceremony at the Royal Opera House in London’s Covent Garden, and they certainly made the most of their time together without 14-month-old daughter North West as they couldn’t keep their hands off each other at the event.
While Kim was the only female winner on the night, there was plenty for the male stars to celebrate including Benedict Cumberbatch, who took home the Actor of the Year award.
The star was presented with his prize by his ‘The Fifth Estate’ co-star Dan Stevens, who described him as a “b**ch ****” on stage.
Dan’s comments were part of an expletive-filled ceremony, which also saw Cara Delevingne, who presented Pharrell Williams with Solo Artist of the Year award, turn the air blue when she joked: “Someone told me you’re not meant to swear in lace, that’s a f***ing lie”.
Lewis Hamilton was awarded with the Sportsman of the Year accolade and Van Morrison won the Legend gong.
Bradley Cooper was on hand to present Jonah Hill with the International Man of the Year prize, while Colin Firth, Iggy Pop and Liam Neeson took home respective Leading Man of the Year, Icon and Editor’s Special awards.
New ‘Doctor Who’ star Peter Capaldi won TV Personality of the Year and 1980s British rockers New Order took home the Inspiration accolade.
Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair made a rare public appearance at a celeb bash to pick up his Philanthropist of the Year prize.
