In her name: Lynn Redgrave, seen here with Vanessa in 2010, perished at age 67 of breast cancer in 2010
And Vanessa Redgrave paid loving tribute to her younger sister by heading up the commemorative gala renaming 45 Bleecker Street - the Lynn Redgrave Theatre.
The 76-year-old actress donned a grey dressing-gown over matching trousers and black loafers for the Culture Project Gala at Stage 48 in New York on Monday.
The Atonement star is still the only British actress ever to win an Oscar, Emmy, Tony, Cannes, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild award.
Vanessa was joined at the touching tribute by Kyra Sedgwick and husband Kevin Bacon as well as Trudie Styler.
'Lynn was a professional inspiration,' said the soiree's host Kyra, according to Broadway World.
'So to be opening a theater named for her and reflective of her wonderful ability to make a difference in people's lives through performance, is a touching and humbling privilege.'
