Sienna Miller graces the cover of Harper's Bazaar UK's January 2013 issue wearing a pretty pink, over-sized Chloe gown featuring romantic pleats from their spring 2013 collection. This will be the first interview Miller has given since the birth of her daughter, Marlowe this past July. Her accompanying editorial, shot by David Slijper, features the new mom wearing retro 1960's inspired designs from Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney.
Inside the British beauty and star of the film, The Girl talks about motherhood and her desire to develop herself as a parent before hiring a nanny.
Sienna on the joy of childbirth: “It’s still the most surreal thing, that you can create, that I grew this life inside my stomach, her eyeballs, everything – every little fiber. And I’d expected that she’d be this extension of me and I’d instantly understand who she was because she’d come from me, and then you realize that they are their own people entirely. Very connected to you, of course. But they’re their own person… It’s the best, the greatest thing in the world… I would do that day a million times again. I would do that day, every day. I loved it.”
Sienna on her body changing after child birth: “My body’s a completely different thing to me, it’s not mine – all the attachment to its flaws or any aesthetic attachment is gone. You understand what breasts are for; and I have such enormous respect for my body because of what it can do.”
Sienna on wanting to develop herself as a parent before hiring a nanny: “It’s just been the three of us, which was amazing, and exhausting. We are going to get a nanny, but it felt important to first learn for myself who I was as a parent.”
What do you think of Sienna's cover? Personally, I think its nice to see Sienna back in the spotlight again, I have missed her and her fashionable styling.The issue hits newsstands on December 3rd, but you can head to Harper's Bazaar UK to see a behind the scenes exclusive video for Sienna's cover shoot.
