“Found Narratives: Amanda Seyfried leads an enigmatic cast of characters through a weekend of playful reverie, in @alasdairmclellan’s debut campaign for Miu Miu,” the brand captioned one of the two images shared. The other indicated that the series was shot at “Norfolk’s Houghton Hall,” an English mansion that was constructed for Britain’s first prime minister, Sir Robert Walpole.
The campaign is not the actress’ first encounter with the brand. She wore a cherry-red pantsuit to the spring 2013 show in Paris, where she sat front row with other bright young things of 2012, Emma Stone and Dianna Agron. Seyfried, who has recently been in films like “Ted 2” and “Pan,” is set to star in a variety of upcoming projects, including “The Clapper” with Ed Helms, “Flying Horse” with Benedict Cumberbatch and Ralph Fiennes, “American Express” with Charlize Theron and the reimagination of the cult classic series “Twin Peaks.”
While her Miu Miu portraits are likely to draw nothing but retweets, Seyfried found herself defending another wardrobe choice over Twitter earlier this week. After the paparazzi snapped photos of her reportedly going without underwear, she took to the social media platform to prove them wrong, proof included. “That was not a vagina it was a Cosabella nude, lace thong,” she tweeted, attaching a photo of said underwear. “…which doesn’t mean I’m not disturbed by a grown man taking [and] selling these shots. Underwear or not, it’s still up my skirt.” A few days later, she shared more thoughts, writing “social media is a business for many, but with a platform of millions, why aren’t more young celebs promoting charitable organizations?”
Previous Miu Miu campaigns have included Elle Fanning, Imogen Poots and Lupita Nyong’o.

“Any hour for my friends” is the motto inscribed on the sundial in the gardens of the historic Norfolk estate, Houghton Hall. With its 24-hour lived-in decadence, it is the perfect environment in which to explore the layers of modernity and history in the motifs of the #miumiuAW16 collection.
