See what went on backstage at the GQ Men of the Year Awards

Some of Australia's most successful stars flocked to Sydney's The Star (fitting) last Wednesday to celebrate the 11th annual GQ Men of the Year Awards presented by Audi. International stars including Amber Heard, Ansel Elgort, Travis Fimmel, RJ Mitte and Dacre Montgomery were joined by an Aussie guest list including Asher Keddie, Hugh Sheridan, Ian Thorpe Client Liaison and Flight Facilities. The men's fashion world was represented by Virgil Abloh of Off White and Lukas Vincent of EX Infinitas.

The awards were presented to 18 outstanding men as well as one successful woman (Amber Heard, holding it down for the females) who are standout influencers in their fields. Over 300 guests dined on a 3 course meal and sipped Patrón cocktails before an exclusive Flight Facilities DJ set rang in the official GQ After Party presented by Emporio Armani.

As with any big show, we know there is just as much action (if not, more) happening behind the stage than on. Click through the gallery above for all of the exclusive backstage and after party shenanigans from the GQ Men of the Year Awards.
