Katherine Heigl was amongst the star-studded 40th AFI Life Achievement Award ceremony, to honor actress Shirley MacLaine at Sony Pictures Studios in California.

The 33-year-old actress arrived on the black carpet wearing a black silk gown from the Fall 2010 collection by Monique Lhuillier, which featured metallic gold embroidered straps that traveled in a snake-like wave down one side of her dress, gathering fabric as it went.

A sexy side slit showed off Katie’s matching dark gold strappy Camilla Skovgaard sandals. A lace panel filled this opening on the runway, but I prefer the open cut on her.

I really like this dress on her. It was a good fit on her body, especially around her bust area. One too many times, I see dresses on Katie that make her appear heavier in that area or too tight.

This was just right. She looked sexy and confident.

What I don’t like about this ensemble? Her hair. I don’t know if it’s a bouffant or if she’s going for that ‘blown back’ look, but it totally ages her. Although, it was great for showing off her Le Vian small gold hoop earrings.

She finished off with a black Judith Leiber clutch and bright pink lips.

The AFI Life Achievement Award tribute to Shirley MacLaine will premiere on TV Land on Saturday, June 24 at 9PM ET/PST.
