She also matched a Chanel handbag with her ensemble to complement her phenomenal look.

And it seems her brunette hair makeover is here to stay after captioning the pic: “Short hair don’t care.”

Fans were bowled over by her appearance, flooding the image with positive remarks.

“You look amazing, love your hair,” commented one person.

“You look fantastic and that dress is beaut! The shorter hair really suit you,” added another.

The former Eva Price actress recently revealed on social media she was “super proud” not to quit the 12-week workout course that has left her – in her words – with her newly-toned bum.

Thanking her personal trainers for helping her “be the best I can be for me and my family – physically and mentally”, the star announced she was “ready to take on the world”.
