She wore a backless, gold lame slip dress and a pair of matching platform heels, with simple gold accessories including drop earrings and a delicate necklace.

The Hollywood star recently spoke out about the importance of female friendships at an event for cosmetic brand Soap & Glory in LA, and revealed who she'd choose as the ultimate celebrity best friend.

"In my girl squad, I guess it's girls but I would have loved to have Prince and I think that he would've worked with a girl squad.

"Beyoncé, obviously. Lemonade is amazing and I think she'd be a really awesome person to hangout with.

"And then Lena Dunham, I'm lucky to know her in real life and she actually just had her birthday yesterday, she's a lot of fun."

She also spoke out about her beauty icon, Victoria's Secret model, Lily Aldridge.

"I feel like I'm always referencing her pictures and whenever I'm getting my hair and makeup done I'm looking at things that she's done. Her and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley - I think they are amazing!"

The actress also championed confidence as the key ingredient to her beauty ritual.

"I think it's really about not comparing yourself to other people and realising especially with your physical body that's what you're given and learning to love that and accept that.

"Realise that everyone feels that way so you might be looking at someone and thinking, "oh they have everything I want" and they're thinking the same thing.

"So once you get past that you can start to really like yourself and everyone else around you responds to that as well."
