The outfit was cinched around her hourglass figure and complemented the royal purple sneakers she wore to the event.

Sharpening her screen siren features with makeup, she added a splash of glitz with gold earrings and accessorized with a silver clutch.

Meanwhile Jared, 50, was as agelessly handsome as ever, wrapping himself in a black leather jacket over a simple shallow v-neck.

Post Malone was on hand to rouse the crowd at the Spotify fete with a performance, accompanying himself on acoustic guitar.

Lupita and Jared became close in early 2014 when they were both doing the awards show circuit in aid of the performances that won them Oscars.

Jared played an HIV-positive trans woman addicted to drugs in the drama Dallas Buyers Club, which was led by Matthew McConaughey.

Meanwhile Lupita played a slave in the 19th century American South in the harrowing historical film 12 Years A Slave, led by Chiwetel Ejiofor.

Jared and Lupita picked up the respective Oscars for supporting performances and forged a friendship with one another along the way.

Years later Lupita told Net-A-Porter that Jared was ‘still on speed dial, because we were on that [Oscar campaign] journey together and he’s so embracing of me.’

She remarked: ‘There was an intimacy that grew from that, that goes beyond the dating rumors, beyond all that.’
