Sienna Miller looked flawless in a patterned lilac dress to meet King Charles on Tuesday, giving us all some style inspiration when it comes to floral dressing.

The model and actress is firmly in the fashion spotlight after launching the new Sienna Miller X M&S summer collection. Some key items from the highly-anticipated collection sold out in minutes, with shoppers eager to emulate Sienna's signature boho style. So it's no surprise the stylish star had just the right dress when it came to meeting King Charles at the prestigious St James' Palace.

Sienna was pictured standing alongside rock legend Sir Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster, as well as King Charles himself and footballer David Beckham at the King's Foundation Awards, as David was announced as the newest celebrity ambassador for The King's Foundation on 1st June 2024.

For the occasion, she demonstrated perfectly how to nail 2024 colour trends in a gorgeous lilac gown with voluminous shoulders and a cropped sleeve, with subtle nude shoes finishing the look.

Sienna's blonde waves were worn loose and relaxed at her shoulders, while her makeup was typically understated, with a dewy base and slick of bright red lipstick.
