Style Icon: Sienna Miller

Ever since Sienna Miller starred in the film Factory Girl, I have been utterly obsessed with her style.  Factory Girl, for those who haven't seen it (you must!), portrays Sienna as Edie Sedgwick, the famous muse of Andy Warhol in the late 60s.  Edie Sedgwick is a free-spirit who dropped out of college in the late 60s to become the next Holly Golightly in NYC.  A chance encounter with Andy Warhol leads to a startling rise on the New York scene for Edie.  With a sultry bob and statement earrings, a carefree attitude and a strong spirit, Sedgwick manages to enchant nearly every man she comes across.  

I found Miller to be the perfect actress to play Sedgwick.  It seems their personalities are quite similar.  Miller has always struck me as a bohemian in style and spirit-never too put together or predictable.  In fact, that's why I love her style.   She isn't afraid to make fashion mistakes and doesn't seem too concerned with the latest trends.  She seems to have an innate taste that always manifests so beautifully.
Sienna once said, "I'm really not good at dressing up or being glamorous."  Perhaps that's why I find her so intriguing- she's not your typical beauty queen and doesn't seem to wear all designer labels.  She appears to put relatively no thought in to her outfits, yet always makes a fashionable statement.  A past winner of the prestigious Elle Style Award for Style Icon, here are some of my favorite Sienna fashion moments:

Sienna's effortless fashion sense transitions nicely from the streets of London to movie premiers to the red carpet.  Although I adore her quirky boho style, some of her red-carpet moments took my breath away.


Sienna Miller's ever-evolving style can teach us all a lesson:  In fashion, you cannot take yourself too seriously or be afraid to make fashion mistakes.  Making mistakes is how we learn to define and refine our personal style. Whether rocking boots and jeans or a red Valentino gown, Sienna reminds us confidence and a carefree spirit really can make an outfit.
