Sienna Miller returned to the spotlight for the first time since the July birth of daughter Marlowe Sturridge (with actor Tom Sturridge) when she stepped out to promote The Girl at the Hamptons International Film Festival this weekend. And her return was a stylish one: She chose an Alessandra Rich cape-style dress for the film’s premiere and followed up with Sea NY printed trousers ($375 at matchesfashion.com) for the festival’s brunch. So how does it feel to be back? “To be honest, it’s kind of nice to put on a dress,” she told InStyle.com. “I’ve been in baggy jeans and baggy T-shirts and breastfeeding—it’s hard to have any semblance of glamour when you’re in the middle of new motherhood. It’s really lovely to be able to put on a dress and feel like a woman as well as a mother.” That said, her red carpet approach has changed somewhat. “I’m just so focused on my daughter that I don’t care as much—which is great,” she added. “She’s more important.” And then there’s her secret weapon: “Spanx!” she declared. “I’ve had to get a lot of Spanx. That’s rule number one.”

It was a fashion double-take at the Hamptons International Film Festival this weekend, where Sienna Miller celebrated her new film, The Girl, in a white dress with cape-like sleeves by Alessandra Rich, a fellow Brit who launched her line in 2009. “I’m happy to support a new designer,” the actress—in her first post-baby appearance—told InStyle.com. The look reminded us of Gwyneth Paltrow’s statement-making Tom Ford gown for this year’s Oscars. (They both even accessorized with big cuffs!) “The Oscars is the biggest nail-biter,” Paltrow had told us of this look. “I’ve learned to wear what works for my body while always taking a bit of a risk. This Tom Ford gown was stunning and modern and recalled a kind of ’60s glamour.” Do you like the cape style? Let us know!
