“I think it’s great that the discussions are finally being allowed to be had [about feminism], as opposed to anybody mentioning feminism and everybody going, ‘Oh, fucking shut up.’ Somehow, it [feminism] became a dirty word. I thought it was really weird for a long time, and I think it’s great that we’re coming out of that.”
I heartily agree, Keira Knightley! The actress talked to Harper’s Bazaar UK about, amongst other things, her feelings on feminism and her relief that feminist discussions have become more frequent and open. Check out the full interview at the link! [Harpers Bazaar UK]
Who said wearing your wedding dress had to be a one-off deal? Not Keira Knightley, that’s for sure. The actress, who wed musician James Righton this past May (center), rocked her repurposed wedding dress at an event in London last night (left). Worn over some sort of long-sleeved mesh garment, the Chanel frock looked pretty perfect on the blue carpet, but this isn’t the first time Knightley has sported the look off the altar — she actually first inaugurated the tulle number back in 2008, when she wore it with black tights to a BAFTA awards dinner (right). Five years ago, her wedding, and today … it’s safe to say Keira really, really loves this dress. [Photo Credit: WENN]
Keira Knightley is a married woman now! On Saturday, May 4, the star wed boyfriend and Klaxons keyboardist James Righton. A source tells Us Weekly that it was a very moving ceremony and that Keira cried tears or joy as they exchanged their vows. Well, she certainly had more than one reason to be happy. She pulled off something most stars are incapable of doing.
She had a small, lovely, low-key wedding. The couple, who got engaged last May, said ‘I do’ in front of a small group of guests at a town hall in Mazan, France. With so many lavish, star-studded nuptials, her quiet ceremony comes as a refreshing surprise. Most celebrities get hitched in lavish, six-figure fetes that are just too over-the-top to believe.

The British Advertising Standards Authority strikes again! The ad censorship watchdog, responsible for putting the kibosh on everything from scummy American Apparel ads to a photo of an underage Dakota Fanning holding a perfume bottle between her legs for Marc Jacobs, is cracking down on another campaign. Next up on the chopping block is a Chanel Coco Mademoiselle fragrance commercial starring Keira Knightley. Keep reading »
Generally Acknowledged Life Truth: Keira Knightley is so beautiful it’s stupid. We’ve been loving all of her “Anna Karenina” premiere looks, but we think this one, with its sleek, perfect cat eye and pink lipstick, has taken the cake so far. Find out what you need to channel Keira’s romantic flair, after the jump… Keep reading »
Oh, Keira Knightley, can you do no wrong? [Yes. See the movie "A Dangerous Method." -- Editor] Seen here: the “Anna Karenina” star is untouchable in Valentino (and I’m going to need an ID on that lipstick, stat). She is totally making me reconsider my visceral reaction to my own overgrown eyebrows, which is to say the damning little voice inside my head that encourages me to take a razor to those bitches. Never a good idea.
I guess if you’re going to an event called the Chanel Little Black Jacket dinner, you might want to wear black to fit in. And so, Keira Knightley wore what looks at first glance like a standard retro ’50s frock. But turn her around and you see the true magic of the garment. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
“I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, ‘So you mean you are a feminist?’ As though feminism couldn’t be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don’t want to deny my femininity. But would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”
– I don’t know why I am surprised that Keira Knightley outs herself as a loud-and-proud feminist in Vogue. I suppose it makes sense: girlfriend has had to squeeeeeeze herself into more than a few corsets in all those English period pieces. I’m fairly certain not being able to breathe will make anyone a feminist. [Vogue]
