I am going to leave out any “wash that man right out of my hair” speculation about Robin Wright Penn’s new darker ‘do at her “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” premiere last night and focus on the recent change in her red carpet fashions.
The “Forrest Gump” star never made a big fashion statement in the past, as seen by her similar and safe dress choices in Cannes earlier this year, so could her sexy look be a signal for her recent singleton status?
Wright Penn first debuted her new found love of skin-tight black mini dresses at the Toronto Festival in September (a month after splitting from Sean Penn) and again last night in a black Herve Leger
bandage dress with minimal hair and make-up.
And, while there is no denying the 43-year-old looks stunning in her new clothes, the star could probably benefit from “how to dress sultry not slutty” advice from celeb peer Demi Moore
who always exudes sex appeal without revealing as much anatomical detail.
