The Legally Blonde actress was sophisticated chic as she rocked a simple yet elegant black mini dress, which pulled into a simple round neck and fell to just above her knee.

Just in time for the holidays however, a cavalcade of gold sequins cascaded over her right shoulder - adding a subtle amount of bling to the simple ensemble.

Keeping co-ordinated from head to toe, she paired the dress with matching gold high heels and a pair of dangling metallic earrings that sparkled under the lights as she posed.

Throwing caution to the wind, the petite beauty went virtually makeup free, with just mascara and a dab of nude lip, to draw attention to her enviably radiant complexion.
