With her cat’s eye sunglasses and sleek black button up dress, Melanie Griffith cut a stylish figure as she headed out for lunch on Wednesday.

The 56-year-old actress wore a knitted cardigan over her dress along with low heeled red flip flops for her Mexican lunch.

With her blonde hair in a loose updo, she headed to join a female friend in the Santa Monica area of Los Angeles.

Melanie was without her husband Antonio Banderas for her outing – the couple have a 17-year-old daughter Stella together.

The couple fell in love on the set of Two Much in 1995 and married the following year.

When it comes to her career, Melanie is loyal to the 53-year-old actor-turned-director.

The couple recently finished working on the sci-fi thriller Automata, and next will work together in the drama Akil that Banderas is directing and stars Melanie.

Melanie is also mother to Dakota Johnson, 24, by her ex husband Don Johnson. Dakota is an actress who has recently filmed Fifty Shades Of Grey.

Johnson was out elsewhere on Wednesday night, attending the New York City premiere of his new film Cold in July with wife Kelley Phleger.

The crime drama co-stars Michael C Hall and Sam Shepard and is based on the cult novel of the same name by Joe R Lansdale.
