Having a ball with her pals, Isla looked sensational in a black, button-down frock that showed off a hint of cleavage, the actress looking immersed in the lively conversation happening around the star-studded table. 

Russell, who is of late sporting long, grey hair and a bushy salt-and-pepper beard, leaned over the table to talk to various guests, and appeared jolly indeed.  

Sacha left his Borat costumes at home, trading them in for a hipster look, including a fedora, black polo shirt and beige slacks, with the comedian stroking his chin as the scintillating conversation reached its peak.

The outing was the latest in a series of meet-ups between the two, who have reportedly been ‘dating for over a month’ while the songstress has been in Sydney filming The Voice.
