The actress donned a lilac gown from the Elie Saab Resort 2017 collection for the event on Tuesday in Los Angeles, with the delicate colour ensuring she stood out from the crowd. With a plunging neckline, flowing skirt and thigh-high split, Lupita’s dress also featured a striped multi-coloured belt and a cross-over strap at the back in the same colour.

And the star topped her look with a colour coordinated headdress - continuing her seriously impressive streak of wearing gorgeous head wraps.
