Judi Dench shows sexy side

Dame Judi Dench sparkled in a gorgeous embroidered gown at a screening of her new film in Italy.

The British actress proved that, at 78, she's still more than capable of rocking the red carpet.

Judi was in Italy on Saturday to promote her new movie Philomena, which was screening.

Rather than playing it safe, she donned an elegant ivory coat gown, boasting gorgeous, detailed embroidery.

Stitched flowers and swirls added a beautiful edge to Judi's outfit.

The dress featured a split at the bottom, meaning Judi showed off a little leg for the cameras.

Accessories also played a part in Judi's outfit, with the star choosing a silver necklace, matching bangles and a gorgeous metallic clutch.

A gold ring and watch and delicate stud earrings finished off her shimmering outfit.

Judi's beauty look was classic Hollywood with a twist, as she wore her white hair slightly mussed up.

Her make-up was simple, consisting of just a slick of black mascara and nude lips.

While she looked every inch the professional, being in the limelight is still daunting for Judi.

"I have worse nerves now, 54 years after entering this business, than when I started. I'm never confident about the work I do and I'm very, very reliant on a director. Everything I do, there's always something that jumps up and hits me in the eye," she previously told

She also added that she does nothing to keep her figure trim.

"Not in the slightest. I drink champagne. I'll start exercising tomorrow," she laughed.
