The revealing number featured a feathered top half and ruffled black bottom, with it coming in at the waist to highlight her slim physique even more.

The 47-year-old actress, who took a six-year break from films, recently returned to star in "Bridget Jones's Baby", said she was initially nervous to make a comeback, reported Femalefirst.

We weren't allowed to take any pics or tell anyone where we were that day and anything to do with the script and plot was kept very under wraps, so I can't wait to see it and see how that scene plays into the whole thing.

After wowing cinema audiences with hits like Chicago and Cold Mountain, for which she won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar, Renee chose to take some time away from the spotlight. Back in 2001, the star attended the premiere of the iconic, original "Bridget Jones' Diary" in another midi dress, this one long-sleeved and black with alternating sheer and opaque panels.

Macnab went on to say "the new film is actually an improvement on The Edge of Reason", a sentiment felt by many critics.
