She was the American Beauty who crippled Kevin Spacey with lust and who captured the imagination of a generation, and Mena Suvari hasn't lost her touch.

On Sunday night the beautiful 33-year-old looked effortlessly stunning to attend an event at the legendary House of Blues in West Hollywood.

She kept it simple in a elegant
structured black shift dress with an A line skirt, paired it chunky
patent Louboutin heels and cute jewelled earrings.

Her only slight misjudgement was layering bracelets on her dainty arms but given the rock 'n' roll setting, Mena pulled it off.

The beauty, who was joined at the
event by Scottish actor Ewan McGregor, recently admitted she's
developing a more sophisticated look.

'I think I was all over the place,' she told People.

She added: 'I love classic pieces, timeless pieces. I see myself thinking about my age … and now I just want to keep it classy.”

'I think inherently, I’ve always been the kind of person that loves anything that’s different,' she explained.

She added: 'I feel like I’m on the endless hunt for an amazing, really chunky black knit cardigan,' she said.

'I’m always in a store looking for it, and I can’t find it anywhere!'
