Fashion statement: Diane Keaton actually looks just fine

By Liz Kelly

Longtime Celebritology readers will be aware of my Diane Keaton problem, which I wrote about -- at length -- a few years back. In the intervening time I have neither resolved my Keaton aversion nor sought counseling to help me choke back the revulsion when I scroll past "Because I Said So" or "The First Wives Club" in the cable guide.

I would, however, like to give credit where it is due. One of my (many) quibbles with Keaton is her maddening propensity for dressing like a rag-doll Charlie Chaplin. It wasn't cute in "Annie Hall." It still wasn't cute 27 years later when she wore that hideous tux, hat and gloves combo to the 2004 Oscars (above right).

Over the weekend, Keaton was photographed (above left) in New York at the premiere of her newest movie, "Morning Glory" -- in which she and Harrison Ford serve as high-wattage backdrop for star Rachel McAdams -- wearing something utterly appropriate, on trend and (dare I say it?) pretty. Gone are the floppy bows and ill-fitting men's suiting that Keaton habitually wears in her maddening "look at me, I'm so different" pose. Instead, she's understated -- almost Paltrow-esque -- in a subtle black leather Balenciaga mini-dress, turtle neck and Prada pumps.

Well done, Diane. Now if you could just do something about the whiny thing.

Liz, I know how hard it must be for you to give her any due! At least she's not showing way too much skin, which is more than we can say for a few other ladies in their 60s (looking at you, Cher and Goldie). DK gets props for that alone.

Liz, as a vegetarian, doesn't it bother you that Diane's apparently wearing leather?
