The "Hollaback Girl" singer, 52, stepped out on the red carpet for the awards show on Thursday in a Nicole + Felicia gown featuring a white sleeveless tank-style bodice and green ombré tulle skirt with a dramatic long train. Stefani accessorized the outfit with a diamond choker necklace and completed the look with a smoky pink eye and her hair styled in a high, braided bun.

He also sported his signature cowboy boots for the event, where Julia Andrews was honored with AFI Lifetime Achievement Award.

"I got a call that Vera wanted me to be her date, and I was just so honored that she chose me," Stefani recalled. "She has such a distinct thing that she does that is so feminine and I think ever since I met my husband, that part of me has really come out in my fashion more than ever — the femininity that I didn't really embrace for a lot of years, just because of being in a band with all guys and being on stage." Stefani continued, "Fashion and makeup are such an extension of our personalities and who we are at the time and who we want to be."
