Miu Miu has a history of selecting muses right on the cusp of major stardom (think Elle Fanning and Imogen Poots), but for its fall 2016 campaign, the Prada sibling brand selected a well-established Hollywood doyenne: Amanda Seyfried.
In the lead shot above, the Mamma Mia! and Les Misérables actress poses for a stunning portrait in an off-the-shoulder white dress and a patchwork-adorned, chain strap handbag photographed by Alasdair McLellan and styled by Katie Grand. “Amanda Seyfried leads an enigmatic cast of characters through a weekend of playful reverie,” reads a caption on Miu Miu’s Instagram account, which also features another shot of the star posing atop a bed.
So who exactly makes up the cast? In addition to Seyfried, top models like Alexander Wang-favorite Anna Ewers and Victoria’s Secret newcomer Taylor Hill also pose around the grounds of Houghton Hall in Norfolk, England. Each beauty also sports a selection of “tweed, argyle sweaters, oversize frilled collars, and pearl slippers,” that, according to the brand, represent a countryside heritage.

The new Miu Miu girl reinterprets the sartorial rules of the past. Tweed, argyle sweaters, oversized frilled collars and pearl slippers that speak of heritage, faith, craftsmanship, uniform and purpose are irreverently re-mixed for play and pleasure – a weekend of laughter and games.
