Bella Thorne

22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 11 Dec 2016

Wild child Bella smoothed her intense rouge locks into a low, centre-parted pony. The style perfectly showcased the star’s brand new ombre ends. Peachy lips, contoured cheeks and the highest beam highlighter finished her luxe red carpet look.

Mandy Moore

22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 11 Dec 2016

This Is Us star Mandy chose a more natural route, waving her sunkissed hair into a soft ‘do. Make up-wise Mandy kept things neutral with earthy tones and nude lips.

Lily Collins

22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 11 Dec 2016

Brit cutie Lily rocked up in major goth make up, fully embracing her porcelain skin. The star matched her burgundy smokey eyes to her matte pout and twisted her hair into an elegant ‘do. The look was the perfect match for Collins’ Victoriana-inspired gown.

Kate Beckinsale

22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 11 Dec 2016

We don’t think that 43-year-old Kate actually *really* ages. Look at her! With glowing skin, bronzed eyes and a glossy pony, Beckinsale easily nailed red carpet glamour.

Kerry Washington

22nd Annual Critics' Choice Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 11 Dec 2016

Gorgeous Kerry transformed her curls into a half-undone side plait then swept silvery metallic shadow across her lids. Graphic black kohl added edge to her feminine look.
