GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021: Football Focus host Alex Scott goes braless in a plunging sheer embroidered dress as she makes a glamorous red carpet appearance
She recently became FIFA’s first female commentator while making her debut as the new host of Football Focus.
And Alex Scott was worlds away from the football pitch on Wednesday night as she took to the red carpet at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards at the Tate Modern gallery in London.
The sports presenter, 36, put on a leggy display in a very racy sheer black embroidered dress and fearlessly went braless in the see-through ensemble.
Wow: Alex Scott was worlds away from the football pitch on Wednesday night as she took to the red carpet at the GQ Men Of The Year Awards at the Tate Modern in London in a racy sheer black dress
Alex looked stunning as she strode along the red carpet in the plunging wrap dress that featured a sequin goldfish pattern.
The presenter paired the sultry LBD with a pair of unusual black heels with gold bulbous platforms rather than traditional stilettos.
She completed the red carpet look with a pair of hook earrings and toted a mini rectangle tassle bag that she clutched by a long gold chain.
Alex wore her raven tresses in a sleek middle parting and accentuated her natural beauty with a copper-toned smokey eye makeup look and plenty of lip liner.

The 24th GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2021 in association with BOSS saw a slew of stars scooping top prizes on Wednesday night as the ceremony saw the return of in-person attendees following the Covid pandemic.

As well as receiving one of GQ’s coveted trophies, winners were treated to a £12,000 goodie bag, with treats such as dinner and a night’s stay in the swanky Nobu Hotel, a £200 Boss watch, a bottle of £80 Porte Noire Champagne and a flight on a semi-private plane.
Other prizes also include membership to the prestigious Ivy Club, a luxury facial with Fatma Shaheen, founder of Skin Design London, and an array of skincare delights.

Achievement: Sir Anthony Hopkins, 83, is set to win The Legend Award at Wednesday’s GQ Men Of The Year Awards and has urged actors ‘not to waste their money’ on acting school
During the interview he urged budding actors ‘not to waste their money’ on acting school.
He insisted: ‘Don’t waste your money. They’re failed actors that set themselves up as gurus.’
He added when speaking to the magazine ahead of its ceremony: ‘There’s one very well-known actor with an acting class here in Los Angeles and he’s the star of the show!
‘And all these other students sitting around paying their fees and he’s the star! He’s on stage with them, interrupting them, being rude to them. No, you don’t do that.’
Anthony also candidly discussed his decision to leave the National Theatre, explaining: ‘That’s one of the reasons I left the National Theatre – we had a particular director who was very picky.
‘And that’s one of the reasons that I would be angry. This was in my days of raging paranoia and I warned one director, ”You ever speak to me like that again I’ll punch your face in”.’
He then quipped: ‘Obviously, I don’t do that any more.’

It was announced in July that Idris and his wife Sabrina would present the ceremony, with the actor saying: ‘In their various ways, the GQ Men Of The Year award winners have kept all of our spirits up throughout one of the most difficult years and we are very much looking forward to celebrating with them – and hosting a great party!’
Ahead of this year’s awards, Nick Sargent, chief business officer of culture at Condé Nast Britain and publishing director of British GQ, said: ‘After the unprecedented year we’ve had, I’m thrilled to announce the return of the Men Of The Year Awards for 2021 as a live event.
‘Even though our virtual event last year was a huge success, it’s exciting to be able to come together again in person to celebrate the incredible talent who best represent GQ and continue to push the boundaries on the world’s cultural stage. It will be a night to remember.’
Last year’s GQ Men Of The Year was presented by Jack Whitehall and took place virtually due to the Covid pandemic, with many stars accepting their prizes in pre-recorded clips that formed the ceremony, which was streamed live on YouTube.
