Sienna Miller supported her partner Tom Sturridge at the London premiere of Effie Gray this weekend in London. Great print on that dress. They seem happy and relaxed together.

“I think she’s the best actress in the world right now” – what Jacek just said to me while I was watching the first trailer for Tim Burton’s Big Eyes about Amy Adams. And he was only listening.
