Sienna Miller On FROWing at Matthew Williamson Last Night (Getty)
As the rain was pouring down outside, in the very white, clean space of The Saatchi Gallery on London’s King’s Road the followers of fashion gathered to see the latest offering from one of the corner stone designers of London Fashion Week, Matthew Williamson. No one was more excited to see the collection than his close friend, Sienna Miller who we caught up with ahead of the show.
Perched on her front row seat, Sienna was a vision of relaxed glamour, her look simple except for the teal fur stole wrapped around her neck. Sat in prime position and awaiting the models out of the traps, Sienna stated, ‘I am so looking forward to supporting my friend and I am so excited because I think he has really, really, pushed the boat out and I've had a little sneak preview.’
Naturally of course with the designer on speed dial the actress had already made quite the extensive wish list, ‘it's massive! The collection is just such a huge progression for him, I think. He's really taken on last season, which was a big departure for him already and he's honed that in and it making for something really exciting.’
Sienna Miller On The FROW At Burberry Prorsum Today With Harry Styles and Her On Arrival (Getty)
You would be hard placed to find someone who doesn’t come into daily contact with Sienna Miller at the moment. Employing her Hitchcock heroine looks for the face of this season’s Burberry Prorsum campaign alongside her boyfriend Tom Sturridge, Sienna is gracing the pages of every magazine and many a billboard above and below ground. Unsurprisingly Sienna was thrilled to be asked to be the brand’s seasonal face, ‘I love Burberry and I've been great friends with Christopher Bailey and Mario Testino for years. We're all an old gang of friends, so it was fantastic!’
But of course doing it with your partner will always provide a stumbling block for on-set professionalism, as Sienna said, ‘it’s very hard to take it seriously when you're looking at your other half trying to look hot.’
Despite being a fashion icon across the world Sienna is not the most regular of FROWers, ‘I never really go, I go to my friends shows and that’s it, I don't do the whole thing. But actually I really enjoy them when I'm there. I should do it more.’ Here, here Sienna, we need more of your Sienna style savvy ways on the FROW, especially after seeing your latest glamorous outing for the Burberry Prorsum today alongside Harry Styles!
Even if you are a Hollywood beauty the small matter of being a working mother isn’t always the most conducive thing to getting ready. ‘It’s just so knackering being a new mum. Today I was on a train from Dorset, I ran for the train, literally just got here because just as I was leaving she threw up on me. It’s just not the same as it used to be, I still have wet hair at the back!’ However before us, she was nothing less than perfect.
