Ellen Pompeo, Chris Ivery at Chanel Event

by at . Comments

Faced with the challenge of holding her own at a Chanel gala guaranteed to be packed with celebrities and supermodels, Grey's Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo rose to the occasion with a classic, Roaring Twenties-style ensemble.

At the couture house's black-and-white-themed "Night Of Diamonds" event - also attended by Christy Turlington and Helena Christensen - the popular TV surgical resident was certainly on top of her (glittering) game.

Ellen Pompeo dazzled in a beautiful satin top with an outsize bow detail and diamante encrusted paneled skirt. To complete The Great Gatsby-era look, Ellen's hair had been crimped and waved into a flattering flapper style...

Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery, '20s Style

Typically, Ellen Pompeo and Chris Ivery didn't take themselves too seriously.

When asked, "How's married life?" the Grey's Anatomy star joked, "It sucks. It's terrible."

While her husband of two months, Chris Ivery, didn't provide any marital insight of his own, he seemed to be enjoying his lady's jokester ways.

Chris Ivery later cracked up as Ellen Pompeo continued to wax poetic about their newfound married life: "Our life is very difficult."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
