Nicola Peltz likes to keep things interesting when it comes to her beauty looks, that's for sure. According to the actress' latest brow moment, razor-thin arches are making a comeback, and while we can't say for sure that we will be whipping out the tweezers anytime soon, we seriously rate Nicola's commitment to making a statement.

On Saturday night the 27-year-old attended the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Gala in Los Angeles alongside her husband Brooklyn Beckham, looking elegant in a black strapless Givenchy gown. Leaning into a certain 'winter evening glamour', Nicola kept things not only stylish, but cosy with her accessory choices. "Bury me in tights and gloves," the actress playfully captioned a series of behind-the-scenes images shared on Instagram with her 2.7m followers, which showed off her sheer tights and full-length gloves.

Radiating sophistication in her figure-skimming Givenchy piece with its ruched bodice and finely pleated maxi skirt, Nicola switched up her brow look for the prestigious occasion.

Only recently, in the height of an experimental phase, Nicola was rocking a bleached platinum brow. The controversial beauty trend felt more avant-garde and standout than the current feathered looks that are dominating the beauty sphere, and yet, we couldn't help but admire the actress' audaciousness – bleached brows are not for the fainthearted.

She has been eschewing the 2020's favoured fluffy brow trend in lieu of avant garde arches, proving that she is not afraid to be a style and beauty maverick in her own right.

But at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures Gala, Nicola decided to rock 1990s skinny brows, channelling the supermodels of the day, like Kate Moss, for instance.

Nicola is always ahead of the curve when it comes to her arches, according to brow expert and The Brow Studio founder Shavata Singh. "Instead of following the current feathered trend, she looks set to lead with the original 1990s brow which was at that time thin, arched and precisely pencilled," explains Shavata.

"Nicola is able to carry off this look beautifully, but I would be wary of creating it for anyone else. Over-tweezing can have long-term consequences, as many of us now realise and it is of course much easier to shape a fuller brow than it is to try and grow it in without the aid of microblading. However, the 1990s look can be temporarily achieved by disguising natural brows - bleaching them first and then pencilling over the top to create the look."

"One of the best and most well-known examples of this trend has been sported by Vivienne Westwood since the 1970s.  Although dramatic brows such as this are eye-catching, they are in fact extremely high maintenance and so shouldn’t be attempted by a non-professional brow artist.  I would always recommend that this look be created with makeup rather than removing most of the brow."

Sporting a look created by makeup artist Yumi Mori, it indeed appeared that rather than going hell for leather on the tweezer action, the actress' slim arches were pencilled in on top of her current brow look – as evidenced by the light blonde hairs visible in some close-up shots.

And what better way to temporarily shake things up? After all, if that decade has taught us anything, it is that overplucking can't always be reversed…
