Mariska's dress was a total showstopper and she let it do all the talking by keeping her accessories to a minimum, teaming the frock with a pair of crystal-embellished, royal blue, pointed-toe heels and a clutch adorned with a geometric design.

For the arrival photos, the actress wore her hair pulled back into a low chignon, with looser pieces pulled out to frame her face.
