A Star-Studded Night at The Opera

09/26/2006 at 05:40 PM ET

Usually, a night at the opera is more old-school than It-girl — unless the opera is Madame Butterfly staged by powerhouse movie director Anthony Minghella (Cold Mountain, The Talented Mr. Ripley). Last night, the Metropolitan Opera house in New York was filled with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, dressed in their red carpet best. Sienna Miller (right) left her tough London attire at home and came in an exquisite princess-style Marchesa gown and Cartier diamonds along with the ultimate accessory, on-again, off-again beau Jude Law. Other couples included Naomi Watts, in a beautiful floral Roberto Cavalli, and Liev Schreiber, and the always-stylish Iman and David Bowie. Liv Tyler and designer Zac Posen mugged for the cameras, while Meg Ryan (left) made a rare appearance, looking extra lovely in a Jil Sander gown with flowing train. With all these stars in the audience, we bet the scene at intermission was nearly as exciting as the drama onstage (which did indeed get glowing reviews).

Sienna looks absolutely AMAZING. Love that dress! And the longer hair looks better than short on her, I think.

These woman have class and are beautiful. This is what Hollywood is about not the so called stars of today!

Sienna looks beautiful!!

Wow. Meg Ryan is beautiful at her age and Sienna Miller I think is the most beautiful woman in hollywood. Small boobs are chic and she is so much classier than most.

Sienna does look pretty in that dress. The flowers at her chest are a little too large, however….

Sanne on

Sienna looks really good, she always has it right!
Meg Ryan looks OK but she def needs to ditch the plastic surgeon stuff.

Both ladies look very pretty!

No wonder these two are stars — they both look incredibly beautiful. Was Meg Ryan always, that skinny though? She must never eat! (Must be the new baby she’s running after.)

Wow…Sienna Miller looks beautiful. Agree, Sienna looks better with the shoulder length hair, rather than the boyish hair cut. I love the dress she is wearing, looks very goddess looking, although it doesn’t flatter her chest none. It makes her look like she doesn’t have a chest or her chest is sagging, but I love the dress on her anyways. Meg Ryan is America’s sweetheart, although you rarely ever see her, which is great, because then we would get sick and tired of hearing about her, like some of the stars we’re sick of hearing about. Meg looks beautiful as always, and the dress is gorgeous, it is very classic on her.

Both ladies look very nice and elegant. I wish they had also posted the picture of Liv Tyler. She had on the most simple dress that evening but I think she was the most stunning.

You cannot be serious about Sienna’s dress!? To me, she looks absolutely ridiculous… and Meg Ryan is quite the opposite, I have seldom such a beautiful and perfectly fitting dress…
