She also rocked a sparkling diamond-studded dragonfly brooch that was pinned to her coat, also accessorizing with a diamond-studded bracelet.
The actress completed her look with black pointed-toe pumps for her evening on the red carpet.
The outing comes just a few days where she shared a rather harrowing story about doctors trying to force her son to take OxyContin after suffering injuries in a skiing accident.
The actress has three sons – Roan, 23, Laird, 18 and Quinn, 17 – though she didn’t specify which one was injured, though she was told by numerous doctors that her son needed OxyContin, but she didn’t it because it was too addictive.
‘Every single stop along the way for the next day and a half I had to have it re-put in his chart. “Can you please read it back to me?”‘ she said.
‘In a day and a half that it took for him to get a rod and seven pins in his leg, I got six calls,’ claimed Stone.
‘From four nurses, from an anesthesiologist, from doctors, from people completely unrelated to my son’s situation, telling me why my son needed OxyContin and no other drug would do. No other drug!’
Stone continued: ‘Anaphylaxis? It’s not that bad! How bad is it really? He’s 17, when he will be 18, I really think he could make this decision for himself.

‘Until finally, at the sixth call, I said, “I’m going on CNN tomorrow and if I get one more of these calls I’m going to say that your hospital is a drug cartel,”‘ she alleged.
‘This is not because I or Nan disagree with painkillers. We don’t. We disagree with paid drug dealers,’ she added.
Also during her speech she let the audience know how tough she can be thanks to her background.
‘I modeled in New York in the late ’70s and the ’80s. I spent a lot of time at Studio 54. A lot of my friends are dead. Don’t f*** with me,’ Stone said.
The Casino star added, ‘Do not cross the line between health and healing and abuse. My brother went to Attica [Prison] — he crossed the line. Do not cross the line with me.’
