Lights, camera, glam-squads. As the A-list descended on the Royal Albert Hall for the 2024 Olivier Awards, it wasn’t just the theatrical performances that captured our attention—it was the parade of beauty looks that left us in awe. 

Standouts like Hannah Waddingham, Sophie Okonedo, and Sheridan Smith dazzled on the red carpet, each embodying their unique brand of allure. 

From timeless elegance to edgy modernity, the evening was an eclectic showcase of hairstyling artistry and makeup magic. Coiffed manes speaking to classic sophistication and sleek braids which exuded contemporary chic. Waddingham's voluminous updo gave us old Hollywood grace, while Cara Delevingne's playful braid added a splash of carefree charm.
