Algerian stunner Sofia also caught the eye, wearing a blue sleeveless crushed velvet dress with front thigh-high slits, while standing tall in matching heels.
Keeping things cool and classic, Hollywood actor Tom arrived in an all-black ensemble that consisted of a trousers and a button-down shirt.

While the stars excitedly promote their reboot of the popular Mummy franchise, early reviews have proved to be particularly unfavourable.
Perhaps the most brutal of all came from IndieWire's David Ehrlich who wrote: 'All of this is to say that not only is The Mummy the worst movie that Tom Cruise has ever made, it's also obviously the worst movie that Tom Cruise has ever made — it stands out like a flat note on a grand piano.'
The senior film critic for the online publication gave the film a brutal D - rating.
The main man: Hollywood actor Tom walked out to raucous applause from the studio audience
Charmer: He won over the audience as he regaled them with tales of his experiences on the set
Chest: The star flashed a hint of his muscular chest as he left his top shirt buttons undone
Black to basics: He looked classically cool in an all-black ensemble that included slim trousers
He continued: 'It's not that Cruise hasn’t had misfires before (and between Rock of Ages, Oblivion, and Jack Reacher: Never Stop Never Reaching they're happening at a faster rate), but The Mummy is the first of his films that doesn’t feel like a Tom Cruise movie.'
AP's Jake Coyle compared it to the three previous The Mummy flicks starring Brendan Frasier and released in 1999, 2001, and 2008.
He wrote: 'A messy and muddled product lacking even the carefree spirit of the Brendan Fraser Mummy trilogy.'
New York Times writer A.O. Scott did give the film a bit of credit for only having a run-time of 110 minutes (20 minutes shorter than Johnny Depp's Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tale) but still denounced it.

Premiere: They shot their appearance on the show days before the big New York City premiere
We're having a laugh: Their appearance on the show was filled with merriment and laughter
Wow! She wowed in a multi-coloured metallic off-shoulder dress, teamed with strappy heels
She wore blue velvet: Algerian stunner Sofia also caught the eye, wearing a blue sleeveless crushed velvet dress with front thigh-high slits
The critic concluded: 'It will be argued that this one was made not for the critics but for the fans. Which is no doubt true. Every con game is played with suckers in mind.'
Another tough review came from Variety chief film critic Owen Gleiberman who talked about how the film borrowed all types of ideas, archetypes, and visuals while attempting to pass conglomeration off as 'originality'.
He wrote: 'The Mummy is a literal-minded, bumptious monster mash of a movie. It keeps throwing things at you, and the more you learn about the ersatz intricacy of its “universe,” the less compelling it becomes.'
Ouch: Early reviews for the soon-to-be released reboot - titled The Mummy - have not been good as several top critics have already panned it
Uh oh: IndieWire 's David Ehrlich wrote 'it's also obviously the worst movie that Tom Cruise has ever made'
'A messy and muddled product': AP 's Jake Coyle compared it to the three previous The Mummy flicks starring Brendan Frasier and released in 1999, 2001, and 2008
Dropping the bomb: New York Times writer A.O. Scott did give the film a bit of credit for only having a run-time of 110 minutes but still denounced it
The reviews weren't all bad as Chris Nashawaty gave the film a grade of B - for Entertainment Weekly.
He wrote: 'I'm not sure that this aimless, lukewarm, but occasionally rollicking take on The Mummy is how the studio dreamed that its Dark Universe would kick off. But it's just good enough to keep you curious about what comes next.'
USA Today's Brian Truitt gave it a three-out-of-four rating and explained: 'A tomb full of action-packed guilty pleasure that owns its horror, humor and rampant silliness equally.'
