Jessica Szohr attended the 2012 Pencils of Promise Gala held at Guastavino’s in New York City on Thursday evening.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ actress wore a Timo Weiland ‘Veruca’ dress from the Fall 2012 collection.

Her oxblood sleeveless dress with a leather bodice and rich velvet skirt featured a cut-out back.

Jessica wore her hair in a simple updo, selecting subtle accessories including diamond earrings and a cocktail ring.
