For the occasion, the Crazy Heart actress turned heads in her boldest look yet, flashing her cleavage and underboob in a gold sequin Rodarte Fall 2021 gown.

The dazzling short-sleeved dress is decked out in shimmering gold sequins and features a daring cutout at the chest and waist, held together by a thin black halter strap. It also has a fitted bodice flaring out to a flowy skirt.
