Old school sixties glamour is having a moment thanks to voluminous blow-outs and full-fringes as seen on the likes of Anne Hathaway and Phoebe Dynevor. Now, Lily Collins is fully embracing the retro trend while giving it her own modern twist.

Collins' beauty looks often pay homage to '50s and '60s style, but on the recent Time100 red carpet, her crimson Ralph Lauren column gown – with its sleek, clean silhouette – served as a decidedly modern backdrop to her vintage inspired hair and make-up.

The Emily In Paris star traded her signature polished waves for a choppy fringe, complete with plenty of volume on the crown and gently-tonged lengths created by hairstylist DJ Quintero. A good fringe is part of Lily's signature look, having sported almost every iteration under the sun – from Hepburn-esque baby bangs to a lighter, straight-cut fringe. This heavier version could risk overwhelming Lily's delicate features but the half-updo cleverly pulls the rest of hair away from her face while the bump along the crown creates a flattering lift.

While most celebrities tend to focus on either statement hair or make-up, we love Lily's commitment to the sixties vibe. Make-up artist Vincent Oquendo accentuated Lily's almond eyes with a cut-crease technique using a muted grey eyeshadow and a bold eyeliner swoop along both the top and lower lids. The finishing touch on this Twiggy-esque look is the inky, spidery top and bottom lashes for an almost-babydoll effect. Softly contoured cheeks and neutral lips allow the eyes to take centre stage.

The swinging sixties had a moment on the SS23 catwalks too, with make-up artist Georgina Graham describing the pastel-powered eyes at Paul & Joe as "Sharon Tate in Valley of the Dolls but set in the French Riviera". It's a decade that undeniably brought joy and drama to the forefront of beauty, and we expect to see even more of it come the festive season.
