The 46-year-old looked phenomenal in her yellow Christian Siriano frock, which featured oversized tulle sleeves and an elaborate ruffled, tiered skirt. Drew accessorized with black gold earrings and a diamond ring, both by Lorraine Schwartz, and kept her hair and makeup simple and elegant so as not to overshadow her showstopping gown.

Drew looked stunning in her yellow ball gown

Drew knows what she likes when it comes to dressing for red carpet events, and previously told InStyle that she prefers "fluid" fashion.

"I have a body type that I tend to cover up," she said. "So it's nothing tight, not big and boxy, more of a fluid drape that feels like the '20s, '40s, and '70s. Not utterly casual but efforted in its effortlessness."

Other guests included Cara Delevingne, The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy, Katy Perry, Ciara, and Emily Blunt, amongst others.
