Sienna, Natasha and Savannah – I’m So Proud of My Girls!
I am so proud of my daughter Natasha, and my step daughters Savannah and Sienna. Not only have they been very successful in turning their passions into professions, but they are all dedicated to giving something back and making a real change.
My daughter Natasha has recently launched an amazing food range called Honestly Healthy, which gives people balanced nutrition that really nourishes the body.
I couldn’t get by without her amazing snacks and fridge-filling service!
Honestly Healthy compliments her holistic retreats, that are such a respite to grounding yourself and finding balance again. She really is an inspiration to me, and a reminder of the importance of taking the time to look after yourself.
In addition to her businesses which centres on wellbeing, Natasha has also done some important work for charity. In 2005 she and Laura Fraser held a jungle-themed fundraiser in Notting Hill for their Why Not? charity.
That night they raised an amazing £100,000 for orphans of the Rwandan genocide.
Another treat for you! I’ve stumbled across a video of Sienna on stage accepting her award at last months Annual International Medical Corps Awards Celebration. It’s a good 6 minute long speech, and it’s really interesting hearing Sienna talk about the charity. Watch the video below, and further below that is a press release of sorts posted by IMC with the video on YouTube.
Sienna was in Beverley Hills last night, attending the Annual International Medical Corps Awards Celebration, at which she was honoured for her work with the charity! She looked fresh, pretty and sophisticated in a little black dress, ankle boots, and her hair in a (very large!) bun – I think she looks fantastic, and very appropriate for such an event. It was a great honour for her to receive this award, and I’m sure she’s very proud! Sienna says that the International Medical Corps is a cause very close to her heart.
I’ve added almost 150 photos of Sienna looking gorgeous at the event, including over 60 HQs. Enjoy the photos, and then head on over to InternationalMedicalCorps.org to read more about their work and what Sienna does with them.
On receiving the award, the blonde beauty said: “After seeing International Medical Corps’ courageous work up-close I was determined to become more involved. These people work in the toughest conditions imaginable, saving lives every single day, and bringing self-reliance and hope to the world’s most vulnerable people. I am honored to be their ambassador.”
Actress and activist Sienna Miller has personally selected a variety of clothing and accessories from her own closet to be auctioned off through eBay to benefit International Medical Corps. A long-time spokesperson and Global Ambassador for the humanitarian relief organization, Miller has visited field programs in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti and most recently, Ethiopia to raise awareness of the ongoing famine.
“This is an organization that is very close to my heart,” said Miller. “After seeing International Medical Corps’ courageous work up-close I was determined to become more involved. These people work in the toughest conditions imaginable, saving lives every single day, and bringing self-reliance and hope to the world’s most vulnerable people. I am honored to be their mbassador.”
Running from November 7th-17th at www.siennamillerauctions.com on eBay, the auction features gowns worn by the actress to industry events, as well as fashionable, more everyday items selected by Miller. With no minimum bids, even the budget-conscious can own a piece of Miller’s closet, with all proceeds going to International Medical Corps health care relief efforts around-the-world. Items include jackets, dresses, jeans, skirts, pants, shorts, tops, boots, handbags, heels and hats.
Since its founding in 1984, International Medical Corps has delivered more than $1.1 billion in emergency relief and health care services to tens of millions of people in over 65 countries, including during the crisis in Darfur, the Indian Ocean tsunami, the earthquake in Haiti, and the ongoing famine in East Africa.
Miller will receive the Global Activist Award at International Medical Corps’ 2011 Annual Awards Celebration on November 8th recognizing her remarkable commitment to the organization and advocacy for those in greatest need. As Global Ambassador, she has tirelessly supported International Medical Corps’ mission, bringing its humanitarian efforts to a worldwide audience.
Congratulations to Sienna on this fantastic honour!

Actress Sienna Miller, International Medical Corps Global Ambassador, Calls for Greater Attention to Humanitarian Crisis in East Africa Following Visit to Ethiopia
Los Angeles, Calif. – Actress and International Medical Corps Global Ambassador Sienna Miller returned this week from visiting International Medical Corps’ nutrition programs in the Dolo Ado camps in eastern Ethiopia, an area largely inaccessible by media. More than 120,000 Somalis – 30 percent of whom are malnourished – are seeking refuge here from the crippling effects of drought, famine, and conflict. With six regions of Somalia now facing famine, Miller is calling for greater attention to the worst humanitarian crisis in the world today where more than 12.4 million people throughout East Africa require relief.
“Without immediate humanitarian intervention, more than 390,000 children are at risk of starvation,” said Miller. “International Medical Corps is on the ground providing emergency nutrition services and health care to vulnerable populations in Ethiopia as well as in Kenya and Somalia, but they will need ongoing support to meet the massive needs, which are only expected to expand in the coming months. Ongoing support will literally make the difference between life and death for thousands of children in Ethiopia, and throughout the region.”
Having worked since 1991 in Somalia, International Medical Corps is reaching affected populations with nutrition and water, sanitation, and hygiene programs to provide a multi-faceted approach to the crisis. In Sool and Sanaag regions, the organization, with support from UNICEF, screened 11,500 children and admitted 679 children in outpatient therapeutic program sites for advanced nutrition care. Teams also distributed micro-nutrient supplements for 4,850 pregnant and lactating mothers. In addition, trainings were conducted for Ministry of Health staff on community mobilization, nutrition screening, vaccination, and referrals.
At the Dolo Ado camps in Ethiopia, International Medical Corps, in partnership with the Ethiopian Government’s Administration for Refugee and Returnee Affairs (ARRA), is providing supplementary feeding services for malnourished people, including the provision of nutrient-dense therapeutic foods. To date, approximately 5,000 children and pregnant and lactating women have undergone nutritional screening and referred to the appropriate level of therapeutic care. Teams also constructed 136 latrines and washrooms with 200 more planned and launched a hygiene campaign to thwart the spread of communicable disease in the overcrowded camps.
Last night Sienna attended the UNESCO Charity Gala in Dusseldorf, Germany, where she was honoured with the Commitment To Charity award for her work with International Medical Corps in the Democratic Republic of The Congo and Haiti, and for her work with the Starlight Children’s Foundation in London – congratulations Sienna! Sienna wore a floor length champagne coloured dress by Stella McCartney with her hair up. Pictured at the event with Miss Miller were director Oliver Stone, actor Armin Mueller Stahl, and fashion designer Donatella Versace, and she had her mum, Jo, with her, as you can see in the photos!

No, on-again lovebirds Sienna Miller and Jude Law didn’t get married, but they did participate in a ritual of sorts.
“It wasn’t a marriage ceremony at all,” Miller told “Extra” at the grand opening of the Esquire House L.A. “It was a blessing from a monk. The whole thing was completely fabricated by the glorious British press.”
What isn’t made-up is Sienna’s new fashion line, Twenty8Twelve – and Jude recently attended one of her runway shows. “I was very happy he was there,” she cooed.
Miller is also lending a hand with the International Medical Corps. “I went to Haiti and the Republic of Congo, which was incredible and life-changing. Meeting the people on the ground doing what they’re doing was just overwhelming.”
Last Friday Sienna attended and hosted the Opening Night of the Esquire House in Los Angeles, an event to benefit the International Medical Corps which Sienna works with. She was pictured with Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman, and her G.I. Joe co-star Marlon Wayans at the event. Sienna looks absolutely stunning in a little black Nina Ricci dress with grey heels and her blonde hair loose! We don’t often see this ultra-elegant and glamorous Sienna, but I think she looks fantastic. This is definitely one of my all-time favourite Sienna looks now. What do you think? Leave a comment!
100+ HQs from this event have been added to the Gallery for you to enjoy, and read the rest of this post for some tidbits from the event.
I’ve also added another 26 photos from the Book Launch Sienna attended last week, most of which are in HQ.
