Conversely where that same scene gets it SO wrong is seeing how averse Lara is to wearing a dress. This is punctuated at the end when the butler drops the trey upon seeing her in that dress. The shocked expression conveying the joke; "ohhh hahaaaaaa, look at that, it's funny because Lara would neeeeeeever do that".
Of course we know that Lara does wear beautiful and extravagant dresses. This is part of the appeal of her. That even while being strong, powerful, and adventurous, she still fully embraces her femininity. Lara does not see this as a "weakness", that having a soft side in no way contradicts or compromises her harder edge. Not only is Lara sporty, rugged, and athletic, but also smart, stylish, and sophisticated. It's these layers of contrast to her personality that is essential to what sets her apart from most other female gaming protagonists. And I dearly hope this is an attribute which does not get lost in translation in the new reboot Lara, as well as being more correctly interpreted in the new movie which like the game is starting over.
With that said; I do accept the vision we had in the 2013 game. It fits as telling a story of a young woman just starting out and yet to truly find herself. To say nothing of being violently thrown into a struggle for survival, relying on the bare minimum of necessities to get through her ordeal.
But now that we're past that, where Lara can have access to a supply of provisions again, and continuing her journey of self discovery and personal growth, I think we should be seeing her move forward in developing her identity and self expression.
Are you paying attention Rhianna?
