Gal’s Prabal Gurung dress featured a gauzy layer adorned with chunky sequins and and an intricate lattice pattern lain over a navy silk slip dress.

Its cap sleeves and jagged midi hemline created an ethereal feel, and draped over Gal’s slender physique to flatter it perfectly.

The beauty kept the focus on her dazzling gown by scraping her brunette locks back into a bun, and wore simple make up to highlight her natural beauty.

She completed the look with a pair of strappy metallic heels, and matched her nail polish (an Essie shade called Dressed to the Nineties) to the hue of her frock.

Gal recently responded to critiques who claimed she wasn’t ‘curvy’ enough to play Wonder Woman in the latest Rolling Stone magazine.

‘Listen, if you want to be for real, then the Amazons, they had only one boob,’ she said, alluding to a theory in Greek mythology. ‘So what are you talking about here? Me having small boobs and small ass? That will make all the difference.’

In the magazine, she also jokedaout the difficulties she faced when filming action scene re-shoots for the superhero movie while pregnant with her second child.

The actress admitted she was initially reluctant to share the news that she was expecting with the cast and crew.

She said: ‘I didn’t want attention. The default should be that women get the job done, but there’s a long way to go and a lot of reprogramming that needs to be done to both genders.

‘We cut open the costume and had this green screen on my stomach. It was funny as hell – Wonder Woman with a bump.’

In the new issue of Rolling Stone – for which she wears the superhero’s signature wristlets – Gal also revealed her and her younger sister were taught ‘to believe that we’re capable, to value ourselves’ as they grew up in Rosh Ha’ayin, a small city in the center of Israel.

Gal now lives in LA with her family (she has two children Maya and Alma) and her new movie Justice League will be released on November 17.
