Taraji appeared on the red carpet in her first David Koma London look for the night, which was centered around a navy blue dress from the fashion house’s Autumn/Winter 2017 collection.

The dress featured multiple embellishments across the bodice and a low neckline that showed off the Taraji’s curves. The skirt also cut off at one side to bare Taraji’s long legs.

The actress finished her look with jewelry from David Yurman and a pair of Jimmy Choo platform sandals.

Just prior to taking the stage, Taraji changed into her second look for the night. The actress kept the low neckline and bare leg theme going with yet another David Koma Autumn/Winter 2017 look: This time, a fully-embellished little black dress that flared out to a layer of ruffles at the hem.

The actress slipped out of her black Jimmy Choo sandals and into a similar silver pair.
