Gemma added a chic touch to her look by stepping out in pointy pink slippers, while keeping all other accessories to a minimum.

The brunette beauty sported her luscious locks in a sleek straight style and she sported a light palette of makeup for the event.

In December, Gemma revealed that she starred in the 2008 James Bond film at the age of 21 to pay off her student loan because she was “ poor as a church mouse. ”

The actress said she now sees ‘so much wrong’ with 007 female characters, alluding to sexist stereotypes perpetuated in films about women.

In Quantum of Solace, she defeated 1,500 other hopefuls for the role of intelligence worker Strawberry Fields, who gets romantically involved with the MI6 agent played by Daniel Craig.

Thinking about the acting opportunity, she said in an interview with The sun: ‘At the start of my career I was poor as a church mouse and I was happy to be able to work and earn a living.

‘I still get criticized for accepting Quantum Of Solace, but I was 21, I had a student loan and you know, it was a Bond movie.

But as I got older, I realized there was so much wrong with Bond women. Strawberry should have just said no and been wearing flats. ‘
