The look made Ali Wentworth jealous, who joked: "Can I borrow that dress? Oh, and the face?"

The star later took to Instagram to show off the glam process, including getting her hair and nails perfect for the event.

One eye-catching photo saw the star flaunting her legs in the beautiful dress as her nails dried, and fans were amazed by her look.

Brooke certainly had an incredible glam squad for the event, as she joked: "It takes a village," a reference to the African proverb about raising children.

One fan loved the entire get-up, as they wrote: "Gorgeous times a zillion," and a second said: "Beautiful from top to toe."

Back in February, the Suddenly Susan star suffered a freak accident and badly fractured her leg, requiring her to need to learn to walk again.

She showed off her physiotherapy, as she walked slowly up a set of three stairs with the aid of a crutch and her consultant staying close behind her.
