Stealing Glastonbury’s thunder this morning is the news that Sienna Miller has bagged the new Burberry campaign. Not only that but she’s brought her man, Tom Strurridge, along for the ride. As we reported late last night, the acting duo are the stars of the luxury brand’s Autumn Winter 2013 campaign which sees them looking very loved-up and even – ooh! – smooching.
Although the Brit couple have decamped to New York, Sienna and Tom ooze Brit cool and are described as ‘longstanding members of the Burberry family’. They join cheeky little sister Cara Delevingne and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as the insanely hot cousin, making it one family we wish we’d been born into. In fact, Sienna is already close pals with the Delevingnes, who she was spotted larking around with at Glasto this weekend.
You'll remember Sienna attended the Met Ball in New York on the arm of Christopher Bailey in May this year, instigating rumours that she was set to be the new Burberry babe. But cast your minds back to 2007 when she first attended the swanky New York event as Burberry’s guest. In September 2011, she worked her FROW credentials at the Burberry Prorsum Womenswear show in London and has turned to Burberry for many dressy occasions (see the gallery above).
Of course, Mr Bailey loves a good set of acting chops for his campaigns. Eddie Redmayne, Emma Watson and Gabriella Wilde have all posed up a storm so this season’s casting is a double whammy for the brand. We all know Sienna rose to fame thanks to a mesmerising role in Alfie alongside Jude Law in 2004 and she recently bagged BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations for her performance as Tippi Hendren in The Girl. She’s due to star alongside Channing Tatum, Steve Carell, Mark Ruffalo and Vanessa Redgrave in Foxcatcher so expect to see many a Burberry beauty from Ms Miller when that promo train rolls into town.
As for Tom, he’s been living in New York with his baby mama as he performs in award winning broadway show The Orphans. His bestie is a certain Robert Pattinson, making him part of that group of young British actors cracking Hollywood alongside Andrew Garfield. He’s due to start filming Sils Maria alongside R-Pattz’s ex, Kristen Stewart, which could be awks and is working on a yet untitled Terrance Malick project with Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale.
The couple started dating in 2011 and a year later, Sienna gave birth to their first child, a daughter named Marlowe Ottoline Layng. They are currently engaged so could this mean a Burberry-tastic wedding is on the cards? Watch this space...
