Sarah Silverman
may be a comedian, but she certainly doesn’t joke around when it comes to fashion.

At Wednesday night’s
I Smile Back
premiere at the Hollywood Arclight theatre in Los Angeles, Silverman exuded sexiness in a dramatic black gown.

The dress — featuring a plunging v-neckline and fitted bodice — perfectly framed her décolletage, and the tulip skirt skimmed her curves.

Silverman, 44, accessorized with a sequined black and silver clutch, minimal diamond jewelry and black pumps. She appeared to have a fresh blowout, her hair worn in sleek waves.

The actress, who plays a New Jersey housewife suffering from depression in the film, complemented the stunning sheath with a simple beauty look. She picked light pink cheeks, a matching rose lip and full black lashes.

The look definitely reflects a change in Silverman’s fashion attitude. Back in 2011 the star told PEOPLE “I’m not a fashion-y person.”

“I like comfort,” she said. “If I can find something that looks nice that’s comfortable, that’s definitely how I go.”
