Sienna Miller gives AD a look inside her charming English cottage
Actress Sienna Miller recently gave Architectural Digest a look into her quaint 16th-century thatched-roof cottage in Buckinghamshire, England. When she isn’t starring in blockbuster films or television series, Miller, her daughter, friends, and family spend time relaxing at the house. For more than a decade, she left the faded chintz-filled interior with its structure untouched. However, during the pandemic, she got the urge to restore the house. For this task, she enlisted the help of her close friend, fellow actress and interior designer Gaby Dellal. Dellal first set about completely emptying the house from top to bottom. Following this, she contracted builders to replace the lattice windows, rip up the floors, and open the eaves of the bedroom. The old garage was also transformed into a guest bedroom for family and friends. In the end, Miller’s cottage was transformed into a lighter, more open space with colors and textures that segue from room to room. Love!

Kim Kardashian shares snaps of daughter North’s potential art for Yeezy

Everything we know about Kate Moss’ upcoming biopic
In recent weeks, Kate Moss has given fans an increasingly detailed view into her private life, speaking openly about her early modeling days and her past relationship with Johnny Depp. Now, she is going one step further and delving into her personal history for a biopic, Moss & Freud, which will center on her experience of sitting for painter Lucian Freud in 2002. So far, we know that Moss & Freud is set during an intense period of Moss’s life, over the course of the nine-month period when she was pregnant with her daughter Lila. Freud famously approached Moss after she mentioned in a conversation with i-D that one of her dreams was to be the subject of one of his paintings. In the end, the finished painting fetched £3.5 million during a Christie’s auction in 2005. The film itself is being penned by Oscar award-winning screenwriter James Lucas who previously brought home an Academy Award for his 2013 short with Sally Hawkins and Jim Broadbent. For her part, Moss will serve as executive producer and is reportedly already heavily involved in the development of the project. However, perhaps the most exciting prospect for the project is that, there’s a chance that whoever plays Moss might get the chance to wear her own clothes. Moss has a large archive of her own clothing dating back to spring/summer 1993, and given her high level of involvement in production, it’s not impossible that she might loan some of her vintage pieces to the film.
