Well Played: Keira Knightley’s Not-So-Typical Little Black Dress

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]

Isn’t it nice to see Keira Knightley’s pretty face adorning multiple magazine covers rather than someone like, say, Kim Kardashian? I jest, kind of, and I do know a few people who maintain that Keira is only marginally more talented than the reality star in question … but regardless, she’s definitely more likable. I’ll be honest, my affinity may have less to do with Keira’s abilities as an actress and way more to do with the fact that there was a time in my life wherein I, like, so totally wanted to be Elizabeth Swann.

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 »

Style Stealer: Keira Knightley Does Florals With Her Fiancé

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 »

See Keira Knightley as "Anna Karenina"...

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.
