She's a Global Gift! Melanie Griffith shines in silver at Dubai Film Festival... where she is being honoured with top humanitarian award
She's at the Dubai International Film Festival to receive the Global Gift Humanitarian Award acknowledging her charitable work at a glittering gala on Monday.
And it looks like Melanie Griffith is having a whale of a time hanging out with Eva Longoria and pop star Anastacia at the United Arab Emirates festival.
On Sunday, the 59-year-old slipped her slender figure into a figure-hugging, silver sequin dress and matching sling-back shoes as she walked the red carpet for director Sophie Boutros's film Solitaire on day five of the festival.

Her blonde hair was styled in an elaborate updo giving a full view of her perfectly made-up face.
The Working Girl star was joined on the red carpet by Eva, 41, and Anastacia, 48.
The beautiful brunette wore a sleeveless dress with a fitted black bustiere and a white flared skirt.
Anastacia, full name Anastacia Newkirk, took a leaf out of Melanie's fashion book and sparkled in a sequin dress.

Shine on in a sequined dress by Dolce & Gabbana
Melanie Griffith is living it up in Dubai with Eva Longoria. The two were spotted at the Dubai International Film Festival and while Eva chose a black and white strapless dress for her red carpet debut, Melanie went with a sequined number by Dolce & Gabbana.
The gown was fairly modest with a rounded neckline, half sleeves and a midi length with a flouncy skirt. But that high wattage shine added an element of glamour that cannot be denied.
With the holidays just a few weeks away, shiny metallics are a definite hot commodity so get in on the look with Melanie's dress by clicking right to buy it at Neiman Marcus.
And if you're not ready to make such a large investment, go for a style that's easier on the wallet. This Boohoo dress at Asos in the edit below should do the trick.

The Body Double star, who divorced Antonio Banderas in 2015 after nearly 20 years together, added snaps of herself and the Desperate Housewives actress sightseeing with a group of pals, captioned: 'Hangin with @evalongoria and the gang at Spice Market in Dubai.'
And Eva posted Snapchats of herself, Melanie and Anastacia reclining on the grand staircase of their opulent hotel, gathered around a large globe and showing off one of their red and gold bedrooms.
