Ellen Pompeo, Chris Ivery at Chanel Event

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...

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

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
