Samia Longchumbon made a stellar performance while attending the Football for Change Gala 2022 in partnership with MailOnline at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground in Manchester on Thursday.
The Cory actress, 40, slayed in a figure-hugging brown midi dress as she was joined by dapper husband Sylvain, 42, on the red carpet.

Football for Change has already raised £350,000 through a celebrity luncheon and then dinner held at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool in November. Thursday’s black-tie gala aims to raise the bar even higher and rake in another £350,000 for the cause.

Football for Change – what is it about?

A major social mobility initiative supported by football superstars including Gary Neville, Judd Bellingham, Steven Gerrard, Anthony Gordon, Lucas Moura, Peter Crouch and Alan Shearer. The campaign is also joined by Noel Gallagher ahead of a grand fundraising event in Manchester next week.
Liverpool legend and Sky Sports pundit Carragher, who is the co-chair of the FFC, has been a driving force behind the charitable crusade, which aims to lift youth from disadvantaged backgrounds out of poverty with life-changing opportunities in education and employment.
Sir Rod Stewart is the patron of the initiative.
Since its launch in November last year, Football for Change has raised £350,000 and is aiming to double that at next week’s star-studded fundraiser.
Noel Gallagher with his High Flying Birds is the main cast and Melanie C and Amelie Sand are also providing entertainment with individual sets.

Sponsored by Swinton Insurance, the event will be attended by football legends, business leaders and celebrities.

Diehard Manchester City fan, Noel Gallagher, will be the headline act at the swanky bash and Melanie C and Amelie Sande will also provide entertainment, with the entire show moderated by Vernon.
The outing took place when Samia was stunned after taking a swimming pool selfie, in which her body was seen cut in half.

On Saturday, she took to Instagram to share a throwback picture from earlier in the summer, in which she can be seen wearing an animal print bikini top and straw hat paired with black bottoms.
However, in the photo, the lower half of her body was completely separated from her upper half, with her feet moving under water.
She captioned her post: ‘I should have paid more attention in GCSE physics, had to google it.. #refraction.’
Refraction occurs when light travels from air into water, causing it to slow down and change direction slightly, creating the optical illusion seen in the image of Samia.
In another picture, Samia looked relaxed as she held her hands in the air while roaming a glass bottom of a crystal clear pool while she was on a recent vacation.
