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).
