She wore her trademark blond hair in a bob and sported a dark crimson lip, giving her radiant complexion a pop of dramatic color.
Turner-Smith, 36, turned heads in her gorgeous suit of wavy black and white stripes, accentuating her statuesque frame to perfection.
Jodie’s lustrous hair flowed downward in an edgy style as she opted for dark purple lips and a designer black clutch.

Watts sparkled in jewelry from Anita Ko while Turner-Smith adorned each ear with elaborate diamond creations and flaunted a blinding ruby on her hand.
The GEM Awards is the Oscars of the jewelry industry, and honors designers and executives who have furthered ‘the visibility of fine jewelry and watches.’
The A-list soiree was held at Cipriani 42nd Street, bringing out the biggest names in fine jewelry.
Turner-Smith is set to star in the upcoming Star Wars series The Acolyte, which is slated for a 2024 release on Disney+.
According to the mysterious show’s official premise, The Acolyte takes place ‘approximately 100 years before the prequel film Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.’
The central story will reportedly revolve around ‘a former Padawan [who] reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister they ever anticipated.’
Watts will soon be seen playing one of the mid-century’s most glamorous women, as she is taking on the part of fashion icon Babe Paley in the second season of Feud.
Based on Laurence Leamer’s best-selling book, Capote’s Women: A True Story of Love, Betrayal, and a Swan Song for an Era, the second season will follow the famed implosion of New York high society when Truman Capote betrayed the Manhattan elite by including them in his fiction.

Watts will be joined by Chloe Sevigny, who is playing legendary socialite C.Z. Guest, while actresses Diane Lane and Calista Flockhart will also be featured prominently.
SAG Award winner Tom Hollander is playing Truman Capote and reportedly shaved his head in order to better portray the controversial writer.
