Britain’s GQ Men of the Year Awards took place Tuesday night in London. Like any ceremony put on by a glossy fashion magazine and attended by hordes of carefully coiffed celebrities, it yielded several red carpet photos of famous people making Fierce Face.
You know what Fierce Face is. No, it’s not the way Christian Siriano used to look when he dubbed virtually everything fierce on “Project Runway.” I mean fierce in the slightly more traditional sense: giving off a vibe that says “Do not mess with me because I’m super-sexy.” It’s basically the expression that celebs learn to make when they go to Red Carpet Orientation Class, which for the record, is a pre-requisite for awards season.
Here are a few of the quality Fierce Faces that appeared at the GQ event, held at London’s Royal Opera House.
Displaying her new platinum ‘do and a Fierce Face that says “Don Draper, I can totally quit you. Wait ... already did.”
Showing some leg (as she is wont to do) and the classic version of Fierce Face, aka Lips Slightly Parted Fierce Face.
Does this one know Fierce Face or what? Um ... excuse me ... I’m talking about her face. Eyes up here.
He has perfected his own signature look, called McNulty Fierce Face.
Fierce ... and possibly a little bored?
The “Homeland” star, working his “I Am a Mysterious, Handsome Ginger” Fierce Face. Conan O’Brien, you’re taking notes, right?
A little fierce but definitely oozing draaaa-maaaaa.
There’s a twinkle of the Fierce in her eyes, but Brie is really doing Saucy Closed-Mouth Grin here, which is what most people learn in their second semester of Advanced Red Carpet. Nevertheless, I included the ”Community” and “Mad Men” star because a. she looks great and b. I like the idea that she and Moss sat together inside the awards ceremony and whispered all kinds of devilish secrets about Pete Campbell.
Okay, there is nothing fierce at all about the Olympic track star’s pose here. It is, however, both perplexing and delightful.
And finally, we wrap up this post with the King of Making Fierce Face While Wearing Tinted Glasses...
