The bombshell beauty teamed the look with glittering accessories, including a tiny beaded bag and matching strappy stilettos.
April’s hair stole the show on the night, with the actress’s brunette locks coiffed into a Sixties half-up half-down style.
Her makeup had a vintage edge too, with the flawless star opting for wing-tipped eyeliner, large lashes and a nude lip to accentuate her look.
Earlier this year, April revealed she almost scored a role on the hit American teen drama Riverdale.
During an Instagram Q and A session with her fans on Monday, she confessed she had auditioned for the hit CW series.
A fan asked her if she had ever seen the show, to which she replied: ‘Yes, love it, but it hurts because I auditioned and wanted it so badly.’

She shared a short clip of her audition tape as she recited her lines for the role of Cheryl Blossom.
April wrote in the caption: ‘I pitched the tone incorrectly because they told us it was like Gossip Girl, when it turned out to be WAY darker.’
She was bested for the job of Cheryl by Madelaine Petsch.
While she may have missed out on the role of a lifetime, April is firmly focused on her role as Chloe Brennan on Neighbours.

She and co-star Jodi Anasta recently locked lips on the soap opera for a raunchy same-sex kiss, just as the show increased their classification rating from G to PG.
‘Diversity is really important to us. I don’t see that as a G or PG issue,’ executive producer Jason Herbison told The Daily Telegraph Confidential back in December last year.
‘We have had gay characters on the show consistently in the regular cast since 2010 and we also have a culturally diverse cast.
‘We have to be inclusive, we have to represent our audience, our audience come in all shapes and sizes,’ he added.
April Rose first appeared on the soap in March 2018.
The former model splits her time between her home in Sydney and Melbourne, where the Neighbours studios are located.
