Meg Ryan steals the spotlight at fashion awards

MEG Ryan has stunned at the 2017 CFDA Awards, stepping out on the red carpet overnight looking seriously sexy in a slinky white sequined gown.

The 55-year-old made a surprise appearance at the event - and she didn't disappoint, wearing a custom sequin gown by designer Christian Siriano.

The white shimmering dress clung to Ryan's slim figure and featured a low-cut neckline in the front and back.

My stunning date for tonight! She is one amazing icon and I'm so honored to have her with me. Can you guess who?

"My stunning date for tonight! She is one amazing icon and I'm so honoured to have her with me," Christian wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the actress posing in the dress with her back to the camera. "Bammmm that's how you do it!" he captioned another snap.

The fabulous red carpet moment comes 12 months after the actress shocked fans with her appearance at the 2016 Tony Awards.

Taking to the stage to introduce a performance, Ryan's dramatically different face quickly became a topic of conversation among viewers on social media.
