With less than a month to go until Bridget Jones charms audiences all over again with the release of Bridget Jones's Baby, Renee Zellweger and co-star Patrick Dempsey are hitting the press path.

On Monday, the actress made a statement in a figure-skimming polka dotted number while promoting the third installment of the beloved franchise in Sydney, Australia.

The burgundy hue of the midi-length printed shirtdress complemented the Academy Award winner's complexion, and featured pockets on the bodice and on the form-fitting skirt. She topped off the elegant ensemble with a pair of leg-lengthening pointy toed nude stilettos, simple makeup, and romantic curls.

The 47-year-old star was all smiles as she signed autographs with co-star Patrick Dempsey, who plays one of her love interests in the upcoming film. Dempsey looked debonair in a black suit with a white button-up shirt.
