Sienna Miller speaks briefly about her character in The Lost City of Z at Paris fashion event

Vionnet dinner RTW Spring 2016

Sienna Miller was the guest of honor at a dinner to celebrate the opening of a store in Paris. Miller has wrapped her scenes in the film and at the event, she briefly spoke about her character in The Lost City of Z.

Excerpt from Women’s Wear Daily:

The “American Sniper” actress is trying to get her hair back to her signature shade of blonde after dyeing it dark red for “The Lost City of Z,” the James Gray-directed film she just wrapped.

“It’s pretty orange,” remarked Miller, dressed in a black Lurex dress that she later topped with a scarlet-and-black capelet for the walk between the boutique on Rue François 1er and nearby restaurant L’Avenue.

Her character in the movie is based on a real person: Nina Fawcett, who was the wife of Col. Percy Fawcett. “He was sent to map the Amazon at the turn of the 20th century, and she was a suffragette and didn’t actually have red hair, but that’s what we decided on for that character,” she said.

Miller’s dye job didn’t require much in the way of wardrobe adjustments, though. “I was pretty much filming six days a week, so there wasn’t much dressing and when there was, it was a tracksuit on a Sunday,” she confessed.
