What are the Molly Ringwalds of their generation wearing on the red carpet? Here are our favourite hair and makeup looks from today's stars

MTV red carpets have seen some odd looks. Think Lady Gaga's meat dress at the MTV Music Awards circa 2010. But the movie and television version — while it tends to be more restrained — also presents more wearable hair and makeup inspiration. With natural hair making a comeback, it was cool to see the voluminous Afro of actress Zazie Beetz (she was Domino in Deadpool 2) making an appearance, as it was seeing Tessa Thompson's Rapunzel-esque braids. While Kim Kardashian also wore cornrows, the jury is still divided on whether it was an 'appropriate' choice for Mrs West.

Television stars also made glamorous appearances, from 13 Reasons Why breakout star Katherine Langford's assured, old school glamour to the unerringly fresh prettiness of Riverdale's Lili Reinhart, whose smoky makeup and barely-there waves was summer evening beauty personified. The key words were: Modern, fresh-faced and glamorous. After all, these ladies are still celebrities. Click on our gallery above to see our choice picks.
