Sienna Miller has given us 6 valuable style lessons with her looks in Anatomy of a scandal: if the Netflix series has all it takes to be captivating (at least in the first few episodes, no spoilers!), what will capture your attention until the last minute will instead be her wardrobe.
The actress plays Sophie Whitehouse, the wife of the (faithful) politician James, at the center of a scandal that will lead him to trial. The story was also told through what Sienna Miller wears: she expresses power, wealth, happiness, insecurity, naivety. Sophie’s state of mind comes straight to the observer thanks to the garments and colors, choices studied in every small detail which also define the new soft power dressing.
Power and success is not expressed with the logo
Stylist Sam Perry has crafted a stunning wardrobe perfect for women over 40, bringing together pieces from The Row, Victoria Beckham, Stella McCartney, Cefinn and Phoebe Philo’s Celine. This already makes you guess his style: clean, not too structured and played on a few essential items, without ever showing off the logo. This is the secret of his charm.
Statement outerwear (including the camel coat)
Sienna Miller’s looks don’t have great virtuosity but focus on some elements that are the basis of an elegant but not brash wardrobe. Flowing trousers and simple turtleneck sweaters acquire that extra “quid” thanks to the wonderful outerwear she wears, a sign of power and confidence. In fact, Sophie Whitehouse has a wonderful parterre: among the models she shows off on set, we were particularly struck by the unstructured tangerine-colored one and the enveloping camel coat by Max Mara. Obviously a trench coat could not be missing, that touch british which defines the status of the character.
White can be worn even after the age of 40
The first image we have of Sienna Miller in Anatomy of a scandal it is the arrival at a private party of English high society: the aforementioned camel coat is paraded and the white knit dress she is wearing is immediately revealed. She is not a tight and sensual garment, her fit is rather soft and characterized by a boat neckline. Sam Perry did not choose an optical or cold white, but a warmer and sweeter shade, to be precise “cream color”.
The co-star of Anatomy of a scandal it is impeccable not only in form: in addition to expressing one’s mood through the choice of shades, Sienna demonstrates that there is not only black in the female wardrobe. There is white and camel, as we have already seen, but also orange, petrol blue, grey, purple and all these colors he combines in a masterful way.
