Meanwhile, George was suitably suave in a two-piece black suit which was comparably low-key to his wife’s dazzling sartorial display.
He followed her lead, opting for an all-black colour theme with a pair of freshly-shone leather brogue shoes offering a contrasting edge.

George had clearly cheered up following his awkward interaction with a Mexican journalist at the film’s press conference earlier in the day.
He lost his temper with a reporter as he was quizzed about what he was personally doing to help the European refugee crisis during the conversation with the media and his fellow Hail, Caesar! stars.
The Hollywood heavy-weight shot down the journalist with a defiant response when asked what else he was doing, aside from making multi-million pound movies, to ease the ongoing emergency.

The 55-year-old British looked magnificent in a cream cropped jacket which featured poofed up sleeves – making her lithe arms appear larger.
She teamed the statement collared coat with a midi-length skirt which was an exact match to her top-half.
Her experimental vibe didn’t stop there as her platinum blonde crop was coiffed into large bouncing curls while she chose to keep her make-up characteristically low-key.

Kathryn, meanwhile, was the centre of attention as she braved baring glimpses of her supermodel figure in a semi-sheer number which meant her strapless bra was fully visible.

Toni appeared thrilled to be back in the limelight – albeit temporarily – as she put on a seriously sassy display in her shimmering green gown.
Set during 1950s Golden Age of Hollywood, Hail, Caesar! also stars Ralph Fiennes and Jonah Hill and focuses on Hollywood fixer Eddie Mannix (Brolin), who has the difficult task of keeping the film studio’s stars in line and covering up scandals.
Mannix is forced to come up with a $100,000 ransom in order to retrieve the studio’s biggest star Baird Whitlock (Clooney).
