She's not normally one to attend celebrity parties or flaunt her figure, but on Saturday night Gemma Arterton made an exception.
The former Bond girl showed off her charitable side as she attended the Peace Earth Foundation ball dressed in a stunning gown.
Gracing the red carpet in a lace floor length dress with a sequined bodice, the actress looked every inch the Hollywood starlet.

Gemma kept her eyes to the ground as she left Banqueting House, where the dinner was being held, making sure she didn't accidentally step on the seams of her pretty gown.
She was joined at the event by models Clara Paget and Suki Waterhouse, and fellow thespian Tamsin Egerton.
Clara looked ethereal in a pretty pastel dress, while Suki opted a white gown and Tamsin wore an eye-catching purple mini dress that showed off her enviable long legs.

But it was Gemma who stole the spotlight in the sophisticated lace red carpet look.
The 26-year-old actress shot to fame four years ago when she appeared alongside Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace, earning her the life-long title of Bond Girl.
And the star recently told Mandrake she doesn't have a problem being associated to her break-out role forever.

She said:'As long as I'm a girl when I'm 78 as well, I'll be very chuffed about that. I've always seen it as such an honour.'
'There's not many people in the world who can say they are, or have been, a Bond girl, so especially this year.'
Gemma added: 'With the 50th anniversary of the Bond films, you realise what an amazing thing it is, and worldwide. You don't think many countries know about Bond but they do. It's huge and it's great to part of something like that.'
