Sienna Miller By Mario Testino In 'The Time of Her Life' For Vogue US January 2015

Actor Sienna Miller chose sexy glamour for the New York Lincoln Center premiere of her new movie ‘American Sniper’ last night (Image above). Her look was a major change from Mario Testino’s child-rich photoshoot for the January issue of American Vogue (below).

Directed by veteran Clint Eastwood, American Sniper is based on the experiences of Navy SEAL sharp-shooter Chris Kyle, played by Bradley Cooper, whose skills made him a hero in Iraq with more than 150 confirmed kills during four tours of duty.

But on returning home to his wife, Taya, played by Sienna Miller, and their kids, Chris finds it’s the war he can’t leave behind.

Actor Sienna Miller tells Vogue that the Great Sienna Instagram Experiment lasted about five days, shorter than a Liz Taylor marriage, writes Vogue.

Sienna Miller on social media:

“It was the most addictive thing,” she says. “Every morning I’d wake up and there would be a thousand more followers or whatever and there would be these amazing greetings like ‘Welcome! We love you!’ ” She laughs nervously. “I’d be inflated by this nonexistent, intangible love. I was like, ‘I need to get off this.’ ”

The Great Sienna Instagram Experiment lasted approximately five days, Sienna says, shorter than a Liz Taylor marriage.

“Ultimately it leaves you feeling incredibly lonely,” Miller says. “I know friends who are prolific on social media, and it gives them a lot of anxiety. That level of exposure… .”

OK (writes Jason Gay), if she will not bleat it herself on Twitter, let me bleat it for her: Sienna Miller is on an undeniable hot streak. A couple of hours after this lunch, Miller is due around the corner at Lincoln Center for the New York Film Festival premiere of director Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama Foxcatcher, in which she has a supporting role. Next up is American Sniper, a gripping real-life story of the late decorated U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, starring Bradley Cooper as Kyle and directed by the flinty American icon Clint Eastwood. After that comes Unfinished Business, a comedy with Vince Vaughn, and the Boston-mobster saga Black Mass, with Miller the moll to Johnny Depp’s Whitey Bulger. Somewhere in there is Mississippi Grind, with indie auteurs Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and High-Rise, a J. G. Ballard drama with Jeremy Irons. Miller is also signed on for the upcoming Amazon mystery The Lost City of Z, with Benedict Cumberbatch and Robert Pattinson, and Live by Night, Ben Affleck’s much-anticipated follow-up to his Oscar-winning Argo.

Phew. It is an enviable list of parts in enviable films—the best string of work of her career. If it were me, I’d tweet about this nonstop. I tweet when my cat gets winter booties. If I were Sienna Miller, I would want to tell everyone.

“Dude,” Miller says conspiratorially. “I’m trying to be cool about it. But secretly inside, I’m dancing.”

Sienna Miller’s January 2015 Vogue cover shot features Burberry’s teal coat worn by Naomi Campbell in Burberry’s spring advertising campaign, also lensed by Mario Testino. Inside the magazine, Tonne Goodman styles Sienna Miller in boho chic for ‘The Time of Her Life’.

PANTONE 18-1438 Marsala Lightens Your Blue Mood

2015’s Color of the Year Can Be Enjoyed By Men and Women Alike Vanity Fair

Every December PANTONE — the color forecasting group — chooses its color of the year. Unlike last year’s ‘radiant orchid’, this year’s ‘marsala’ is a less controversial choice. Please note that I’m not so sure that PANTONE has so much actual influence in color trends. They never impacted me at Victoria’s Secret, as Fashion Director and/or Director of Product Development.

I don’t recall posting lots of ‘radiant orchid’ fashion and style products in 2014, which is testimony to the sensible nature of designers, especially those involved in big brands. ‘Marsala’ is another matter … an earthy red wine … a neutral with passion. Indeed, the color does inspire one to think a bit out of the box, without being considered deranged.

The Pantone website marries’ marsala’ with navy blue. FOR CERTAIN, fashion and style are in a blue mood. The color was everywhere on the Spring 2015 runways and in magazine editorials right now. Marsala is a great color for accessories — although product development groups had better get cracking fast because this blue mood train has left the station.

Vanity Fair writes that the Pantone website looks like it’s straight out of Blake Lively’s PRESERVE. I’ll say! But imitation is the best form of flattery and there’s no contesting the delicious nature of both PANTONE’s color ‘marsala’ and this gorgeous photography. I like it! ~ Anne

Nigella Lawson Is A Blonde Bombshell, Lensed By Diana Gomez For Daily Mail's Sunday You Magazine

Britain’s Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson looks utterly divine in these images bringing delightful beauty to a special holiday supplement filled with recipes for Daily Mail’s Sunday’s You magazine. Lensed by London photographer Diana Gomez, Nigella is styled by Cheryl Konteh with makeup by Trisha Woolston and hair by Jamie McCormick.

The Mail reports Nigella dropping from a size 18 UK to a size 12 UK amid claims she followed the Clean and Lean plan, accompanied by a cocktail of vitamin, mineral and fish oil supplements. Lawson has retained her legendary curves and shared her new look, platinum wig — chosen only for the holidays, Nigella assures us.

I love Nigella Lawson and felt so badly for her, with the fallout over her messy divorce from Charles Saatchi. Life seems to settling down again for Nigella, now that she’s allowed again in the US after an admission of having used cocaine while married to Saatchi. Let’s not focus on these nasty details but celebrate Nigella’s marvelous spirit as she uncorks the holiday season. ~ Anne

Diane Rules! The DVF WRAP Shop On Net-a-Porter


Yes! If I was planning 10 essential pieces for a Smart Sensuality woman’s wardrobe, Diane von Furstenberg’s new reinterpretation of her classic wrap dress — in a suede fabric here — would be on the list. Given the nature of suede’s substance and lack of drape, the dress — inspired by ‘American Hustle’ is constructed of major patchwork sections.  

The 13-piece line of 10 ready-to-wear offerings and three clutches showcases Von Furstenberg’s ‘favorite styles.’

“It is a little bit rock ’n’ roll, a little bit modern, a little bit ’70s glamour,” she says of the sparkling halter dresses and Studio 54-esque jumpsuits that are iterations of the classic piece. “It is really about our strongest prints and our most iconic silhouettes. There is always something more you can do…it is a little bit like being a woman: Once you have established an identity and you know who you are, then there is more freedom to experiment.”

For me, I prefer the same look in sustainable fabrics, although I am not a vegetarian or opposed to wearing animal-derived products.  You could say I’m trying to elevate my consciousness level on this topic. DVF’s new capsule collection for Net-a-Porter launches tomorrow. Love! ~ Anne

Earlier in 2014, Style.com interviewed Diane von Furstenberg about her memoir The Woman I Wanted to Be’.
