Miller wows the critics on return

Sienna Miller has launched a new collection of clothes with her older sister Savannah, fresh from receiving critical praise for her return to the West End.

The siblings appeared at a pop-up stall in Selfridges, central London, on Monday to present the latest range of their Twenty8Twelve label.

Meanwhile Sienna was hailed for her performance in a new production of Terence Rattigan's 1942 wartime play Flare Path.

The British actress, 29, was lambasted by critics when she last appeared in the West End, as Cecilia in As You Like It in 2005.

But her portrayal of Patricia Graham, a former actress caught up in a love triangle during the Second World War, was described as "impeccable", following a performance of the show that opened last week.

The Guardian's reviewer said: "Sienna Miller look suitably strained, tense and taught as the agonised Patricia."

The Independent's Paul Taylor described her performance at the Theatre Royal, in Haymarket, as "genuinely heart-tugging".

"Miller's Patricia allows herself to be absorbed by authentically life-like degrees," the review added.

Sienna, the former partner of Hollywood star Jude Law, was enticed back to British theatre to star in Flare Path by director Trevor Nunn.

She stars alongside Sheridan Smith, who on Sunday night won the award for Best Actress in a Musical at this year's Olivier Awards.
