The star accessorized with matching gold bracelets on both of her wrists and she wore lashings of make-up to highlight her pretty facial features.

She wore a pair of strappy black high-heeled shoes to add a few inches to her stature as she posed at the event.

Based on the novel of the same name by Sarah Vaughan, the series follows Sophie Whitehouse (Sienna Miller) and her husband James (Rupert Friend), a minister accused of sexually assaulting a young political aide named Olivia (Naomi Scott).

Sophie sees her life turned upside down when her husband is accused of rape.

Sienna’s character is then seen saying: ‘Nothing’s sex. There’s more. You’re not telling me just to tell me.’

Sitting at home, he is then seen warning her: ‘The story’s about to break.’

As the media descends on the couple’s life, Sophie is seen putting blame on herself, saying: ‘Sometimes I think I’m partly to blame. I let things slide. Making things right is all I care about.’

He replies: ‘She trusts me.’

Sophie ultimately believes her husband is innocent, as she is heard saying: ‘I know my husband. He’s a good man.’

However, QC Kate Woodcraft (Michelle) is equally convinced of his guilt.

During the trial, she says: ‘Jame’s Whitehouse’s privilege does not extend to rape.’

Losing his cool, James shouts: ‘The word “rape” and my name have nothing to do with each other.’

Kate replies: ‘I have no further questions for this witness.’

The project is produced by Big Little Lies’ David E. Kelley.

It’s thought the series will focus on a different political scandal each season in an anthology style, similar to BBC’s A Very English Scandal according to Deadline.

Michelle was most recently seen in the AppleTV+ series Defending Jacob alongside Chris Evans, where she played a mother dealing with an accusation that her 14-year-old son is a murderer.

Anatomy Of A Scandal is released on Netlflix on Friday April 15.
