With such a vivid and wide brief the glittering assembly of celebrities and VIPs who attended delivered magnificent and awe-inspiring looks.

We adored this beauty look as seen on actress Lily Collins, so much so it deserved its own special mention. The dramatic wing, lashes and shadow are balanced perfectly by her nude lips and blushed cheeks.
