'Cause I got Britain on me mind today...


Thank goodness for this picture.

After Sienna's multiple WTF appearances in Rome last week, I was prepared to accept the fact that one of my very favorite style darlings had taken not just a dip in the crazy pool but a full-on off-the-high-dive bellyflop thereinto.

But here (sigh of relief), yesterday, at the Tribeca Grand Hotel for the New York City premiere of her new Steve Buscemi-helmed film, Interview, she didn't just redeem herself in this prim, proper and perfectly-fitted black Chanel strapless sheath with a lace-overlay bustline, pencil-skirt and patent-leather cinch, she sent my expectations soaring into territories just shy of Cate Blanchettown.* I mean, who knew the befreckled, swears-like-a-sailor London lass who not only usually epitomizes that whole boho-chic look but frankly, was the co-inspiration therefor with these two back in the Summer of 2005, had it in her to transform from this (just hours before the premiere) into the polished lady I see here.

In fact, the only thing I can think of that looks better than Sienna in this dress is Interview itself:

*she would have made there, had she chosen these shoes (in black) instead...

Sienna's dark roots and blond hair has always bothered me. It just looks weird. But I've seen this movie and it's pretty good. She does a really good job.

I'm a big fan of Sienna. The last WTF appearence wasn't that bad. Except for the pink under the gray shirt. The gray shirt/green sweater combo with the jeans and the shoes was pretty cute. I'd rock it.

I can't wait to see that movie! Strangely enough, I kinda want to see them hook up on-screen.

brown rowergirl, that's good. They "kinda" do hook up on screen.
