(NEW YORK) During a Cinema Society screening of The Mysteries of Pittsburgh at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema last night, Sienna Miller took a five-minute break in the lobby. “No matter how many times I do it, I find it almost impossible to watch myself on screen with a straight face!” she admitted. Self-reflection proved emotional, but dressing up for the event was far easier. “I don’t have a stylist, so it’s usually a last-minute rush for to get ready,” she confessed. “It takes me about five minutes to dress, but then I sat around for an hour, trying on lipsticks. I went with the red--which is new for me--and put tissues in my shoes because they are too big. It's all part of the chic panic!”

Meanwhile, guests at the Links of London and Grey Goose-sponsored event were glued to the screen to witness a complex love triangle set in 1980s Pittsburgh. “I’ve always had this project on the back of my mind ever since I read the book in 1995,” said director Rawson Marshall Thurber. “I couldn’t really explore complex love relationships during the filming of Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story!” Some familiar faces on hand included Anna Wintour, Zoe Kravitz, Olivia Thirlby, Sally Singer, Gilles Bensimon, Sante D’Orazio and Nicole Trunfio. Miller's co-star Peter Sarsgaard appeared without his young daughter Ramona. “In my family, it’s not up to me to decide when our young girl sees all the grown-up movies,” he laughed before referring to his character, a bisexual gangster. “I would love to relax and finally shoot something kid-friendly next, like the C. S. Lewis Space Trilogy. Someone, call me!”

The after-party took guests to the Cooper Square Hotel, where Emma Roberts, Rachel Zoe, Rachel Roy, Megan and Todd DiCiurcio, and Stefano Tonchi enjoyed a Mary Giuliani-catered dinner of spiced mac and cheese, marinated shrimp, and grilled chicken. Sarsgaard and wife Maggie Gyllenhaal made weekend plans while Gilles Mendel and Justin Guinta surveyed the scene. “We have a very active collaboration!” explained Mendel. Miller, now sufficiently relaxed, discussed her upcoming move to New York for her Broadway stint in After Miss Julie. “Honestly, this movie was one of my last chances to pretend to be coming-of-age,” she laughed. “And now you’ll see me grown up--and everywhere in the theatre district.”
