Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas stepped out together on Thursday night. The couple, who are approaching their 15-year wedding anniversary, showed they are as united as ever following their temporary split in 2013.

Welsh beauty Catherine, 45, looked the picture of elegance in a chic black jumpsuit, which she accessorised with deep red heels and a similarly hued snakeskin clutch bag. Michael, 70, opted for a dapper navy blue suit and a burgundy tie.

On 18 November, Catherine and Michael will celebrate 15 years since their wedding day. The couple, who first started dating in March 1999, tied the knot at the Plaza Hotel in New York City.

In August 2013, fans of the couple were surprised to hear that they had decided to take a break after 13 years together. While neither Michael or Catherine had filed for divorce, the pair were living and holidaying separately and going solo at events.

The split was only temporary, however, and in March 2014 Michael's mother Diana Dill confirmed that they were back together.

Catherine later put the country home she had lived in during the separation, up for sale.
