Brooke Shields, 58, turned heads in her sexy ensemble at the Glamour Women of The Year Awards in New York City on November 7. The Pretty Baby star sizzled in a multi-colored sequined gown by Halpern that featured a chic backless design. Brooke’s dress was floor length, and boasted slightly puffed sleeves.

The model and author accessorized the look by adding several pieces of jewelry from Paige Novick‘s designs. Brooke’s ensemble was complete with droplet earrings, several cocktail rings, and a chic diamond bracelet. Finally, the brunette beauty tied the outfit together with a Judith Leiber clutch and opted to sweep her golden tresses into an elegant updo.

The mother-of-two took to Instagram the following day to share the details of her outfit, expressing her gratitude to Glamour magazine for honoring her with the award. “What an absolute honor of an evening… thank you thank you thank you to @glamourmag, @sambarry, and all of the incredible women who have lifted me up to this point,” Brooke’s caption began. “Be prepared for many many MANY more posts… #GlamourWOTY.”

Brooke’s latest outing and red-carpet moment comes just a week after her cover story for Glamour‘s Women of The Year issue was released. In the interview, the former child model opened up about her successful career, her recent health scare, and more. Brooke revealed that she suffered from a grand mal seizure in recent weeks. “I was drinking so much water, and I didn’t know I was low in sodium,” she told the outlet. “I flooded my system, and I drowned myself, and if you don’t have enough sodium in your blood or urine or your body, you can have a seizure.”

At the time of the incident, Brooke was waiting for her Uber to pick her up when she began to feel unwell. “I was waiting for an Uber; I get down to the bottom of the steps, and I start evidently looking weird, and [the people I was with] were like, ‘Are you OK?’” she recalled. “I go in, two women come up to me; I don’t know them. Everything starts to go black. Then, my hands drop to my side, and I go headfirst into the wall. I start having a grand mal seizure. It means frothing at the mouth, totally blue, trying to swallow my tongue. The next thing I remember, I’m being loaded into an ambulance. I have oxygen on.”

Brooke recalled that a certain Hollywood heartthrob helped her during her time of need. “And Bradley f****** Cooper is sitting next to me holding my hand,” she went on. “I didn’t have a sense of humor. I couldn’t really get any words out. But I thought to myself, This is what death must be like. You wake up and Bradley Cooper’s going, ‘I’m going to go to the hospital with you, Brooke,’ and he’s holding my hand. And I’m looking at my hand, I’m looking at Bradley Cooper’s hand in my hand, and I’m like, ‘This is odd and surreal.’”
