Uma Thurman Makes A Stunning (Surprise) Return To The Runway

In superstar company too.

It's not uncommon for fashion designers to collaborate with celebrities, either in the cutting room or on the catwalk.

After all, you can't buy that kind of publicity. Well, maybe just a little.

One actress who has never shied away from strutting her stuff on the runway is Uma Thurman, who actually began her career working as a model at the age of 15 and spent the better part of her formative years gracing the pages of Glamour and Vogue.

After taking just a few years away from the rag trade to forge a successful career in Hollywood, the Kill Bill star made a spectacular comeback on the runway, appearing in the Miu Miu cruise show in Paris over the weekend.

Stepping out alongside runway regulars -- including Naomi Campbell, Adriana Lima, Kaia Geber, Taylor Hill and Abwoah Aboah -- the star put her best foot forward as she sashayed down the catwalk wearing a stunning emerald green and leopard-print gown with a long, navy coat.

It's not the first time, however, that Thurman has collaborated with the iconic brand. In fact, one of the most memorable red carpet looks of the 1995 Academy Awards was a stunning lilac slip Prada dress the actress wore when she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Pulp Fiction.

Speaking to Women's Wear Daily, the actress said, "I have, like, a 30-year relationship with Miuccia since I went to the Oscars in her dress all that time ago, and it was such fun. It was a lark!”

As it turns out, the fashion extravaganza was a bit of a star-studded affair because the actress was joined on the runway by her Hollywood heavyweight gal pals Kate Bosworth, Chloe Sevigny and Gwendoline Christie.

Sevigny commanded the runway as she stepped out in a black leather peplum blouse and shorts with a pastel giraffe-print mini robe, while Bosworth rocked a champagne-coloured dress and an orange and  white, loosely-fitting knit.

Together, the fashionable ladies wowed onlookers and were a force to be reckoned with -- but it was Thurman who ultimately stole the show.

This recent casting for Miu Miu's runway collection follows a seemingly popular trend of fashion designers enlisting the services of Hollywood royalty, with Elle Fanning recently strutting her stuff for said brand in March and Lady Gaga previously walking for Marc Jacobs.
