Chastain paired her bejewelled Louis Vuitton dress with side-swept, volumised curls, a matte, cherry red lipstick and minimal eye makeup, while Alba channeled old Hollywood glamour with her longer version of the style, finished with a subtle, smoky eye.

As for our favourite beauty look of the night, Claire Danes and her beehive won us over. A flick of eyeliner and a nude lip colour completed her 60s style perfectly.
