Actress Julia Stiles made it out to Manhattan's Union Club on the rainy, last day of Fashion Week for the Bill Blass show.

Though she lives in New York, Stiles told Newsday Thursday that she spent the week traveling and didn't make it to any other shows.

Stiles looked sleek and polished, despite the weather, in a form-fitting red cutout sheath dress by Bill Blass with black pumps. Her secret?

"I'm wearing lots of hair spray," she said, her blond locks pulled neatly into a bun.

Stiles, who named Yves Saint Laurent among her favorite designers, attended the show with her stylist.

"I like his clean, classic style," she said of Blass designer Jeffrey Monteiro.

The actress said fans will see her next in a web series, that she thinks will come out in April, called "Blue" written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia. She also just finished filming the movie "The Silver Linings Playbook" with Robert DeNiro and Bradley Cooper, set for release in November.
