The 53-year-old actress flaunted her age-defying figure in the elegant look as she walked back to her apartment in the Big Apple.
Catherine showed off her long, toned legs in the royal blue dress, which reached to her knees.

Host Robin Roberts got the ball rolling when she asked Catherine if she or her 78-year-old husband was the better gift giver.
In a response that sent Roberts and her fellow GMA hosts, Michael Strahan and George Stephanopoulos, into hysterics, she admitted it was Michael, joking that she peaked relatively early.
“I think it must be Michael. I peaked… around year eight,” she joked. “I did, had I known I was going to be married that long I would have held back. I hadn’t imagined a 22-year-old. This is Hollywood, man.’
Zeta-Jones, who was there to promote her new Disney+ show National Treasure: Edge of History, went on to reveal the gift she had peaked at.
“I bought him a hot rod… a 1930s coupe – Michael, I’ll misunderstand, I’m sorry – it looks like a Bugsy Malone car, it’s really awesome and then I peaked. It’s been socks ever since,’ she said.
The Welsh actress added that Douglas was good at giving jewelery which was “something I really loved and cherished and of course the sentimental value of it.”

In a recent interview with the UKs The TelegraphZeta-Jones, who briefly split from Douglas in 2013 before reconciling, said it’s “impossible that there aren’t ups and downs when you live with the same person and wake up with them every day.”
“I’ve been waking up to Mike for almost 25 years. I love being married, but it’s crazy when you really think about it,” she said.
Earlier this week, Zeta-Jones gushed that her family life with Douglas and their two children is getting “better and better” every year.
She said People at the premiere of National Treasure: Edge of History in Hollywood on Monday night, it was “just wonderful” to spend time with her family.
Accompanied by her son, Dylan, Zeta-Jones said, “I love every minute with this man. Well, he’s a good son. It’s simply the best.
“I mean, every year gets better and better and with such good friends, I think, in our family, which is great.”

She also told People that her family would be spending the holidays together.
“It’s always best to have our little core back together,” said the 53-year-old.
The couple, who had the same birthday but were 25 years apart, got engaged in 1999 when he proposed on a New Year’s Eve trip in Aspen and welcomed their first child, Dylan, together the following year before marrying three months later.
In 2003, they welcomed a baby girl, Carys.
But things haven’t always been smooth sailing for the Hollywood power couple with Douglas being diagnosed with cancer and the brief divorce.

Speaking of the couple’s 2013 divorce, Douglas told The Ellen DeGeneres Show in 2015, “It can’t be a one-way street.
‘But I’m crazy about her. And yes, I think every couple has their rough times. The only problem, as you well know, is that we’re all in the public eye, and it tends to be a bit more exposed than most others.
“But we’re back stronger than ever.”
Douglas also has another son, Cameron, from a previous marriage.
