    Viola Davis stole the spotlight in a bright violet gown at the Time 100 gala.

    The Fences actress walked the red carpet alongside her husband Julius Tennon at the Lincoln Center in New York on Tuesday night (25Apr17) for the annual bash, which celebrates those who made Time's 100 Most Influential People list.

    Making a serious sartorial statement, Viola sported a figure-hugging purple Giorgio Armani dress which featured a one shouldered neckline and a flowing train. The 51-year-old star completed the ensemble with Stuart Weitzman shoes and a Tyler Ellis clutch handbag.

    Margot Robbie pulled out all the stops for the party too, and looked stunning in a white Prada dress embellished with pastel-coloured sequins, as well as Prada high heels and jewellery from Delfina Dellettrez.

    While Blake Lively turned heads as she walked on the arm of her husband Ryan Reynolds, who was being honoured at the event. The Café Society actress, who gave birth to her second daughter in September (16), rocked a pretty lace dress from Marchesa, complete with tassel trim and floral embroidery.

    Another influential lady at the gala was Sarah Paulson, who wore a black gown with sheer draped sleeves from Rodarte. The American Horror Story star completed the ensemble with Pedro Garcia shoes and sparkly jewellery from Monique Pean.

    Veteran supermodel Naomi Campbell also commanded attention, sporting a dramatic black cape over a black and red dress that was made for her by Azzedine Alaia. Naomi didn't hold back on the bling either, opting to wear several wide diamond bracelets as well as pretty diamond drop earrings.

    Other notable names to be feted at the Time 100 gala included John Legend, Demi Lovato, Ashley Graham, as well as gymnast Simone Biles and TV talk show host James Corden.Read more at:cocktail dress australia
