Madonna, who turned 60 this month, proved that she can still light up a red carpet, with a bold beauty approach that featured multiple braids, a perfectly-executed winged eyeliner look and an elaborate headdress.

Rita Ora

Singer Rita Ora got creative with face stickers and transfers for the big night, decorating her eyes with squiggly-shaped black and silver motifs that echoed the structure of her outfit. A wet-look, scraped-back hairstyle showed off the look to perfection.
