The Martian star, 40, rocked a patent red skirt and business-chic shirt as she posed for pictures at the star-studded event.

The statement frock featured a pretty A-line cut, revealing a glimpse of her bow-embellished black sandals, coordinated with a red pedicure. 

Tucking her crisp white shirt into the statement ensemble, she left her trademark fiery tresses loose, letting her natural shine through under minimal make-up. 

And the award-winning actress was joined by an influx of stars, posing alongside the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Scream Queens star Niecy Nash and The Help star Cicely Tyson.
