Sienna Miller has snubbed stepmother Kelly Hoppen’s interior design firm’s services and instead asked a film director pal to decorate her cottage.
The actress, 40, chosen her friend Gaby Dellal, 61, who apparently has the ‘best taste’ of anyone Sienna has ‘ever met’, to renovate her Buckinghamshire cottage – despite her stepmother being a world renowned designer.
But while her stepdaughter may prefer to take the advice of others, it appears Kelly, 63, still has fans in high places in the form of Boy George.
The Daily Mail’s Richard Eden reports that after taking one look at Kelly’s £12.5 million mansion, singer Boy George ‘fell in love with it’ and has tasked her with doing up his own gothic-style North London home in the same way.
The Culture Club singer, 61, told Kelly: ‘I want you to redo my house and I want it to look exactly like this.’
Meanwhile, Sienna recently showed off her newly renovated 16th-century thatched-roof cottage in the Buckinghamshire countryside in the latest Architectural Digest.
The actress, who purchased the abode when she was 25, said of her place: ‘It was a time when there was a lot of press attention on me, and I wanted somewhere to escape. I bought the house on a whim-it offers a sanctuary.
‘I also wanted somewhere where family and friends could gather. It has a nurturing feeling; it is a home with a heart.’
And while said family members may include Kelly, Sienna told firmly told the publication that ‘I wanted a Gaby house!’ referring to the director’s homes in London and Cornwall.
While Gaby said of the project, which was completed during the 2020 lockdown: ‘What was beautiful is that she just trusted me, and we had a deal whereby she was not allowed there for six months until I completed the project.’
Kelly married Sienna’s investment banker father Ed Miller in 1989 when the actress was just six years old and her sister Savannah, seven.
Despite divorcing Ed in 2003, the entrepreneur has remained close to her former step children.
Speaking of her relationship with Savannah and Sienna in Mail on Sunday’s YOU magazine in 2020, Kelly said: ‘She [Savannah] and her (actress) sister Sienna are and will always remain two of the most precious people in my life – even though I have been divorced from their father Edwin for 17 years.
‘She calls me Mama K and I call her Sasa. She and Sienna always send me cards and flowers on Mother’s Day, which really touches my heart.’
Meanwhile, Sienna recently enjoyed a getaway in the South of France with her model boyfriend Oli Green.
The film star looked incredible as she donned a bright red bikini for a romantic lunch on the beach on Monday.
Taking to his Instagram Stories, Oli, 25, shared a sweet snap while cuddling up to the actress as she showcased her toned physique in skimpy swimwear.
The mother-of-one beamed as she sipped on a glass of rosé wine with her beau’s arms wrapped lovingly around her.
Oli appeared fresh from the ocean as he sported wet hair and wore a towel around his waist.
Oli later shared a cheeky snap of Alfie star Sienna as she displayed her impressive flexibility with a spot of yoga.
Sienna slipped into a pair of skin-tight black shorts and a peach vest for the session as she worked with a trainer in the gorgeous grounds of their hotel.
