The blonde beauty looked stunning in an unusual black dress and minimal make-up.

Blake recently confessed she doesn't need to do much to look good and eats chocolate every day.

She said: "I do nothing! I'm lucky to have a very active lifestyle, I'm always running around everywhere... So I don't need to hire a coach or watch what I eat. I can't start my day off without a mug of hot chocolate or finishing off the day with a few squares of dark chocolate... It keeps me feeling happy."
