Julia Stiles attends the opening night of The Long Shrift

Julia Stiles decided to go elegant and classy for the opening night of The Long Shrift in New York City on Sunday. The 33-year-old actress wore a low cut green dress that she paired with a white blazer and beige heels.

The Save the Last Dance star wore her hair down and kept her makeup light as she stepped out for the evening, posing for the camera alongside actor James Wirt. James and Julia will be appearing together in Scott Organ’s play Phoenix, a quirky comedy about a one-night-stand that has long-term implications.

James will play her love interest and Jennifer DeLia will direct. Phoenix begins performances on July 28 and opens Aug. 7.

Julia will also be in a few projects on the big screen this year including horror film Out Of The Dark. The thriller centres around a couple and their daughter who move to Columbia in order to take over a family manufacturing plant and find out their new home is haunted.

Other stars attending the opening night included The Long Shrift’s director, James Franco, who starred in Oz the Great and Powerful and Ally Sheedy, who stars in the play.

Julia rides Citi Bike in NYC

Julia was was snapped riding a Citi Bike bicycle in the West Village section of New York City on Monday. The actress seemed to be having a good time on the pedal vehicle as she smiled while gripping onto the handlebars.

Citi Bike is the Big Apple’s bicycle sharing system which is intended to provide customers with an alternative transportation option for getting around the city. Julia was dressed in a casual chic black outfit while pedaling around in the populated city. She wore a transparent patterned long-sleeved mini-dress over a black tank top, stockings, and pair of leather booties while on the ride.

The Silver Linings Playbook actress wore a pair of aviator sunglasses on her face and gold necklace around her neck which had a crescent moon shaped pendant on it. Julia also placed her medium-sized black leather purse in the basket of the bike and had her platinum blonde locks in a messy ponytail. The actress was also seen walking on the same day, but this time wearing a white denim jacket over the ensemble.
