She is currently the tabloids' breakfast, lunch and dinner, but last night Sienna Miller managed to bring swathes of 60's New York chic to London’s Leicester Square for the premiere of her new film Factory Girl. Playing hedonistic Warhol-ite, Edie Sedgwick, in George Hickenlooper's biopic, Miller’s performance has already been praised as a career-best and is, for the moment, re-focusing the media attention away from the ex-boyfriends and onto her talents in the front of the camera. Hopes of cementing her place as one of Britain’s leading actresses, are very, very high indeed.

"This is very exciting," said Miller, "it feels like a good party after lots of hard work. You just try to lose yourself in the moment," she added when recalling her on-set experiences as Edie - a comment that mirrors her earlier admissions to the Guardian that it was her decision "to immerse myself in that character. I was playing somebody who was self-destructive and sometimes it was upsetting ... So after I'd been researching it for a year I had this way of talking and this way of laughing, this way of smoking, this way of dancing”.

Miller may be the one who's pulling in the column inches for Factory Girl, but it's co-star Guy Pearce who's landed with the unenviable task of portraying the Godfather of Pop-Art, Andy Warhol: "Guy Pearce is a great actor, a great friend and he totally embodied Andy," gushed Miller. "I'm so flattered all these fans are here," added director Hickenlooper: "I like the British". What a good chap.
