Billie Eilish looked incredibly gorgeous with her hair styled in side-swept bangs.

5. Zendaya

Soft glam eyes, amped-up lashes, and glossy lips – are we all the way back in the 90s? We’re feeling it, aren’t you? 

6. Jessica Chastain

She had all of us in awe with her monochromatic look. A definite yes from us!

7. Lily James

What’s more fail-proof than smokey eyes? Lily understood the assignment!

8. Zoë Kravitz

We weren’t ready for this! What a striking look to wear; clean, sleak, side swept hair with structured bangs, this one gets our vote.
