Rachel looked much younger than her years as she sported her dark chocolate brown tresses slicked behind her ears, while her features were enhanced with rosy blusher and deep pink gloss.

As she collected the award for Best Supporting Actress, Rachel said: 'I played this opposite two of the most glorious women Olivia Colman and Emma Stone and didn't we have the most glorious time? Hats off to you ladies!'.

Speaking about their on-screen kiss, Rachel said they were very unprepared: 'My mouth met hers and our lips opened and there’s not really preparation involved in kissing someone I don’t think. I don’t know of any.
