I’m still not entirely sure how I feel about the cupcake-y dress Keira Knightley wore to the “Anna Karenina” UK premiere, but one thing is for absolute certain: her makeup was gorgeous. Keira is, you know, one of the most naturally beautiful people alive, but makeup artist Lisa Eldridge made the very best of the actress’s features for the occasion. She said of her decision to focus mainly on a feline smoky eye, “I wanted to create a soft, pale, and pretty makeup that had a romantic feel but was careful to add strength around the eyes so the overall look wasn’t washed out against the dress.” Lisa, who spoke to Grazia Daily just after the event, used Chanel products to create the look (Keira is the brand’s beauty ambassador). Get the full scoop after the jump, but don’t be put off by the potential costliness of recreating it — I’ve also included my top product picks for taking Keira’s cues at a more affordable price range.

Confession: I haven’t seen a Keira Knightley movie since “Love Actually,” but I’ll gladly own up to my weakness for the actress any day. How could I not, what with her impeccable bone structure? It also helps that, for all of Keira’s delicate features and compelling roles
(but also not really), she manages to come across in the press as the delightfully witty, irrepressibly potty-mouthed British best friend of my dreamz.
Her feature in the September issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK is no different: a charming interview laced with obscenities and a sumptuous editorial is all I could ever wish for, and Keira certainly doesn’t disappoint. The opulent styling envisions the “Anna Karenina” star as “a modern-day Guinevere,” replete with a glamorous Gothic appeal that really speaks to the half-Russian in me. Keira wears the season’s difficult deep plum lipstick to unrivaled success, and I would sell my soul for that feather stole or cape or coat or whatever it is she’s got going on there. Any takers? No? Fine. Additional photos after the jump! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
I often wonder aloud how the guy from Klaxons, a terrible band, managed to score babe Keira Knightley, but that is neither here nor there. Keira’s long-running tenure as, you know, Elizabeth Swan paved the way for her public entity, but in the last few years she’s really proved herself as one to be watched, even when pirates aren’t involved. Her willowy figure and easy grace make her the perfect mannequin for high fashion, but she’s also the epitome of cool when she’s off-duty. A cute floral minidress and simple sandals are a go-to for any casual summer occasion… even if you lack Keira’s long legs and English charm. (I do. Severely.) [Photo: FameFlynet] Keep reading »
Confession: I have never read Anna Karenina. Is that, like, a weird thing? Has everybody read it except me? If that’s the case, then don’t spoil the whole thing for me quite yet, because the trailer for the new film adaptation just came out and I am feeling it. I love period films, high society, Russia (represent), Jude Law (!!), and Keira Knightley (!!!), so it’s kind of my dream. (I hope the book makes for an acceptable poolside read, because that’s where I plan on getting my Russian tragedy on this weekend.) It goes without saying that I’m also head over heels with the style aspect of the forthcoming film: lush, heavy fabrics, rich colors, over-the-top opulence, and, rising like a storm cloud over the incredible beauty and passion, a prevailing undercurrent of dread. Oooooh. Check out the trailer for the film (out November 9th) above and, after the jump, my take on some Anna Karenina style inspiration. I do hope you like fur. Keep reading »
Keira Knightley is essentially perfect in every way. I will accept no argument: she is the precise type of girl for whom the old paper bag adage was made. This alone is a case for anything she wears registering an automatic “love it” with me, because seriously. Last night, Keira turned out in LA for the premiere of her new film with Steve Carrell, “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” (that I am dying to see, by the way), and she opted for this embroidered Valentino for the occasion. Now, I am the rare breed of young person who embraces anything and everything with a floral print, even if it looks better suited to my great-aunt’s curtains than my body, but even so I’m feeling torn about Keira’s choice in dress here. It’s beautifully made, and I’m sure it’s breathtaking up close, but the raised flowers have serious, serious plush carpet factor. What do you think: are you down with this rug-like gown, or would you feel it better underfoot? I’m so sorry.
Ahh, young love … ain’t it grand? [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
The publicist for ”Pirates of the Caribbean” star Keira Knightley says the actress is engaged to be married. Publicist Sara Keene Friday confirmed the engagement. She says she does not have further details about the wedding plans. The Oscar-nominated 27-year-old actress who first won acclaim for her role in ”Bend It Like Beckham” is to marry musician James Righton. Read more…
Keira Knightly believes that English people are obsessed with spanking and she is no exception. Keira played Sabina Spielrein who has a relationship with her therapist Carl Jung in “A Dangerous Method” and in one scene she had to be spanked on her butt by her co-star Michael Fassbender, who portrayed Jung.
Keira claims she was barely asked about the erotic scenes when promoting the film – which also stars Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud – in any country other than her British homeland, which has led her to deduce her countrymen are fetishists. Keira admitted that she and Michael only got through the spanking scenes by turning to booze. Read more…
“I actually said to him before we shot the spanking scenes, ‘If you touch me I will kill you’ and he did remind me that I was tied to a bed at the time and really I shouldn’t be making any threats. … [those scenes] weren’t particularly easy.”
