Amanda Seyfried was obviously feeling a little nostalgic in New York last night.

The actress hit the red carpet for the premiere of her new film Ted 2 wearing a look that could have totally come straight from the 90s - in a good way.

When it came to choosing a dress for the occasion, Amanda found a design that really showed off her gym-honed frame and slender, toned legs.

Bringing a quirky twist to the asymmetric trend that we've seen so many A-listers rocking recently, the thigh-skimming LBD featured several straps pulled tightly across one shoulder.

And when it came to footwear, Amanda - who stands in at around a petite 5ft 3in - seemed to favour the approach that higher is better by teaming her tiny dress with towering strappy stilettos.

Although her frock and shoes had a definite throwback feel, it was Amanda's hairstyle that really stood her apart from the other VIPs at the screening.

The 29-year-old actress sectioned her tumbling golden tresses into cornrows - a 'do favoured by pop icons including Christina Aguilera and Justin Timblerlake (yes, really) back in the day.

But Amanda - who when it came to make-up, framed her eyes with a combination of sultry smoky tones and slicked on a nude lipstick - isn't the only celebrity to have fashioned braids like this in recent times.

Kendall Jenner and older sister Kim Kardashian are both fans of plaiting their locks all over, while top model Cara Delevingne sported an intricate twisted style at the Met Gala last May.

Leading lady Amanda was joined at yesterday's event by handsome co-star Mark Wahlberg, who she happily posed with before settling down to watch the movie.

Morgan Freeman and teenage star Bella Thorne were also in attendance.
