For her latest outing, a private dinner with Chanel no less, the 40-year-old actress let her natural beauty come to the fore in a thigh-skimming play suit from the label, bedecked with pearls. She added towering Louboutin heels in a lovely champagne hue and an embroidered Chanel clutch to complete her outfit - a thoroughly modern ensemble from such a traditional luxury fashion house.

No wonder she looks so happy - she looks incredible.

Thandie and her playsuit joined famous faces like model Laura Bailey and Jasmine Guinness for the private view and dinner of Chanel's new flagship store on New Bond Street, due to open its doors to the public tomorrow. #scream
