She recently wrapped filming on her new movie The Aeronauts.
And Felicity Jones looked every inch the stunning movie star when she stepped out for the The Serpentine Summer Party 2019, held at The Serpentine Gallery in Kensington on Tuesday evening.
The actress, 35, oozed sophistication in an elaborate evening gown that was crafted out of glistening black sequins and featured a plunging neckline that reached down to her midriff.

The Inferno star boosted her frame in a pair of barely there stilettos and kept her accessories to a minimum in order for her glittering gown to take centre stage.
Felicity styled her chestnut locks in loose curls which were swept to the side.
She enhanced her natural beauty with a dusting of pink blusher and applied a peachy gloss to her lips.

This year’s party pavilion, designed by Japanese architect Ishigami, 45, is made out of 62 tonnes of Cumbrian slate shaped into a flowing mound.
Despite its distinct design, Ishigami told The Guardian that he took inspiration from the Japanese garden concept of shakkei, or borrowed scenery.
He said: ‘I wanted to create a pavilion that felt primitive and ancient. Something between building and landscape.
‘Slate roofs are found all over the world, so anyone coming here will be able to identify with it as a basic, archetypal form.’
Each year an architect is selected to design the famous Serpentine Pavilion, and Tim Leigh, marketing director for Stage One, the fabricators who have created the pavilion every year for the last decade, said this year’s creation was the toughest yet. It was really, really difficult this year.
‘Ishigami is the most conceptual architect we have ever worked with. It was a very strained process’, he explained.
