Boy George, real name George Alan O'Dowd, was photographed showing up at the Whatsonstage.com Awards at Palace Theatre in London on Sunday night (February 17, 2013). Also attending the star-studded event were a host of celebrities including Melanie Chisholm, Jennifer Ellison, Danny Boyle, Will Young, Sheridan Smith and more. Dressed in all black, Boy George was almost unrecognisable as he revealed his dramatic weight loss on the red carpet at the 2013 WhatsOnStage.com Awards. Looking half the size and half the age he did a year ago, the former Culture Club frontman showed off his new slimline frame after shedding the pounds in a black suit and shirt. Boy George teamed his ensemble with a bright blue tie adorned with a cross, wearing a beige baker boy hat that was decorated with buttons and wool string. The Karma Chameleon star also covered his face in makeup and highlighted his chiseled cheekbones with the help of his stubbly beard.
