Leelee Sobieski has been in so many great films and one particularly outstanding TV miniseries adapted from one of my favorite books ever (ahem, “Les Liaisons dangereuses”). It’s crazy to think that the NYC native is only 29. Leelee took some time off from the industry the past few years after getting married and having her first child, but with a few new credits under her belt and a few artful public appearances (looking flawless, might I add), we’ve got our cards stacked in favor of the actress’s big-screen comeback.

Last night Leelee Sobieski (who is, like, Helen Hunt Jr.) attended the premiere of her new TV show “NYC 22″ at the The Paley Center For Medi. In it, Sobieski plays a rookie cop and Iraq war veteran battling it out on the streets of New York. But here, she looks all statuesque and stuff, in this gorgeous cream and navy gown with scalloped pattern and unique tie-dye effect. Love it. What do you think?
