STYLE CRUSH

MODEL ELLA RICHARDS TALKS SHOP WITH HER FASH­ION ICON SI­ENNA MILLER

InStyle (USA) - - The Look - ER: SM:

ELLA RICHARDS: Si­enna, so we’ve seen each other more of­ten since I’ve moved to New York, and you al­ways look ef­fort­less, like you threw some­thing on and it just so hap­pens to look in­cred­i­ble. SI­ENNA MILLER: Aw, I could say the same thing about you! ER: What are some of your fa­vorite things you’ve ever worn? SM: Gucci made me an amaz­ing blue gown with a leather bodice for Cannes [right], which re­ally stands out. Also my gold Burberry dress [from the 2006 Met Gala; far right]. I have it in sil­ver too, and it’s so fes­tive, I bring it out ev­ery year at Christ­mas. I’ll prob­a­bly be a granny still squeez­ing into that thing. [ laughs] ER: Love it! Some­times when a de­signer dresses me in a full look, I find it quite chal­leng­ing to put a per­sonal spin on it. SM: Same. I used to feel the pres­sure to let peo­ple do what they wanted. I re­mem­ber get­ting ready for the Os­cars one year with my boyfriend at the time [Jude Law], and all of a sud­den I had this in­sane Me­dusa hairdo. I ended up ty­ing it back and looked like Princess Mar­garet. Now I’d say, “Hey, not too much hair and makeup.” ER: If you could live in any fash­ion era, what would it be? SM: I’d go with the ’20s, when women chopped their skirts and ran around get­ting pissed all night, or the free­dom of the ’70s. ER: Yes! Does your style change de­pend­ing on the city? I’m a bit scruffy in Lon­don and much more pol­ished in New York. SM: In New York I kind of dress like Justin Bieber in those geeky bean­ies and such. In Lon­don it’s more coun­try bump­kin. My na­ture is to trend more bo­hemian, but I don’t feel like I dress that bo­hemian now, ex­cept in the sum­mer. I guess I could put on a tai­lored piece and still look a lit­tle free-spir­ited, though. ER: What’s some­thing in your closet you’ll never get rid of? SM: I’ve barely got­ten to keep any­thing! I know your friend Kate Moss has kept all her dresses, and I so wish I had too. I’d prob­a­bly say my gold Burberry dress again so my daugh­ter can wear it one day. Do you have any great Yves Saint Lau­rent pieces from your mom [model Lucie de la Falaise]? ER: Yes. And my grand­mother [model Anita Pal­len­berg; Richards’s grand­fa­ther is Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones] also had an in­cred­i­ble ar­chive, which, lucky me, I have. SM: Nice! It’s in my con­tract now that I get to keep some of the wardrobe from my films too. I played Edie Sedg­wick [in Fac­tory Girl], and if I had it my way, I’d only dress in her black tights and leo­tards. I do bal­let when I’m in New York, and I have the full out­fit. You should come with me some­time. Oh, I would ab­so­lutely love to! OK, my love. I’m go­ing to get my leg warm­ers and text you.
