On Thursday night, GQ held its annual Men of the Year Party in L.A. to celebrate the most special-est dudes of 2014. What an amazing year it was for men. Above, Terry Crews is not only incredibly acrobatic and dapper; he's also modeling H-to-T in this photo at an event where many of the looks were notably safe and streamlined.

EXCEPT for Charli XCX, who wore all gold everything and her trademark 10-foot platforms, accessorized with the requisite "whatEVER" glare. That lipstick color is everything. ::Shrug::

Here's the all black regalia squad, featuring Gina Rodriguez in a comfy jumpsuit (would wear) and Hailee Steinfeld in a simple but perfectly-fit LBD. Shailene Woodley does the pants suit justice, and Pretty Little Liars' Shay Mitchell has a slight Elvira flair that I'm digging.

Dave Chappelle is swimming in his suit and tie, but he gets a ~sartorial~ pass for paying tribute to Mike Brown with the hands-up protest.

Is Sam Smith headed to the opera? Is Wale going to a school where Weird Al Yankovic is his teacher?

Adam Pally does not care. He consulted with Wale on this outfit. Blake Griffin is one of the few dudes who boldly opted for color and I'm not mad at his olive selection. Bulky football players in suits make me wince, but Michael Sam tried.

Out of Ansel Elgort, Billy Eichner and Boyd Holbrook, the latter (a model, of course) is nailing the "unimpressed" look best.

Chadwick Boseman killed it in this unexpected, well-tailored light gray suit. Jesse Tyler Ferguson did not. The best thing on Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, is the warm smile.

A couple of daring lads, Nick Kroll wore a vest and Robbie Rogers went double breasted. Also pocket squares. Steve Carrell, well, you're a funny man.
