The Wedding Crashers star, 45. appeared to be wearing an elegant low-cut black gown, which she accessorised with a stunning diamond choker necklace. 

Her signature red hair was coiffed in loose waves and she added a pop of colour with some bright red lipstick. 

Meanwhile, Borat star Sasha, 49, looked dapper in a black tuxedo.
