As onlookers whispered about her surprise appearance, the star confirmed that she was only in town for the Miu Miu show.

“Nothing makes me nervous. It's just a fun reunion with friends and it's always so much fun to see what Miuccia Prada pulls together,” she told Elle.com.

The 45-year-old had not attended any high profile events since the ELLE Women in Hollywood event last October, where her tight and taut face caused some raised eyebrows.

“I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows...Perhaps I look different. Who doesn't as they get older? But I am different. I'm happy,” she said when the media began to speculate.

The Texan native has five movies in the pipeline and insists that she has been “blessed” with her great roles.

“I think as more women are feeling empowered to take those chances, and people are giving them the opportunities by showing them that their product has an audience, I think it will improve as we go forward,” she said.

“I think we'll be seeing more and more women expressing themselves in the medium of film and behind the camera. I look forward to that, because we want something to be in the cinema that we can relate to, that moves us, that we are inspired by.”
