The Australian beauty teamed this with a smart pair of black trousers and pointed black heels.

Cate’s appearance comes after it was recently announced she will receive the Chaplin Award in New York in April.

At 52, Cate is the second youngest recipient of the prize, which is the highest honour presented by the prestigious Film at Lincoln Center, one of the major arts organisations in the US. 

The award, which was founded in 1972 and is named after Charlie Chaplin, is given to recognise the career and contribution of artists who left their mark on the medium.

The prize has been awarded 47 times. Previous winners include Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep, Robert de Niro and Tom Hanks, the youngest to accept it.
