Keira Knightley for The EDIT

unnamed

Keira Knightley talks about Hollywood’s double standards, leaving fairytales behind, and embracing the aging process in The EDIT, Net-A-Porter’s weekly fashion glossy.

In her editorial you see the ‘Laggies’ actress wearing shop-right-now looks from Valentino – naturally – Dolce & Gabbana, Delpozo, Erdem and Alexander McQueen.

Here are some extracts from her interview. You can read the full interview over at The EDIT.

On advocating for gender equality in Hollywood: “The people who make movies, whether it’s directors or producers, or money people, look for things that they can identify with and if they’re all predominantly middle-aged white men, then what you see are things that middle-aged white men can identify with. And you don’t get anything for anybody else.”

On given up on fairytales because women do not need men to come to their rescue: “A friend of mine just had a daughter. It’s a political thing, having a baby girl, in a way that it isn’t for a boy. You think, ‘Oh isn’t this fairy-tale lovely?’ Then suddenly you worry, ‘What am I planting with that? I don’t want her to be waiting around for a man to fix her problems.’ Maybe it’s a bit silly, but because equality is going so hugely the other way, I think it probably does take being silly to try and swing it back around.”

With regards to the future, Keira is ready to take anything that comes with her trademark poise. Unlike her childlike character who struggles with getting older in the upcoming film ‘Laggies’, Keira is embracing it, even if she is not quite sure what “grown-up” is meant to feel like. While Keira admits to not having all of the answers, she is looking forward to trying to find them.

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton – 20th Annual Artwalk NY

Jennifer Connelly In Louis Vuitton - 20th Annual Artwalk NY

Jennifer Connelly attended the 20th Annual Artwalk NY held at Metropolitan Pavilion on Thursday (October 30) in New York City.

The actress was, of course, decked out in head-to-toe Louis Vuitton Spring 2015, and while I usually buy what she’s selling, I couldn’t get on board with one element of the look: namely, the jacket.

While complementing the rouge backdrop, buttoning it up in such a fashion makes the look feel rather restricted and rigid. The high neck is so restricting it makes me think of a neck brace.

The dress is pretty enough and I don’t mind the boots, as that is the Louis Vuitton way, but Jennifer has had much more successful outings in the brand.

Priyanka Chopra In Pankaj and Nidhi – Abu Dhabi Film Festival

Priyanka Chopra In Pankaj and Nidhi - Abu Dhabi Film Festival

Priyanka Chopra took to the red carpet at the Abu Dhabi Film Festival for the Bollywood Nights event on Wednesday (October 29) in Abu Dhabi.

The actress wore a fresh-off-the-runway Pankaj and Nidhi Spring 2015 light-blue fitted gown with pastel-hued delicate embroidery which might just be one of my favourite looks from her.

Unapologetically feminine, she styled the look with a chic updo, coral lips and Valliyan earrings which perhaps should’ve been toned down considering the detailing on her dress.

Allison Williams In Giambattista Valli & Preen – Peter Pan Live! Promo Tour

Allison Williams In Giambattista Valli & Preen - Peter Pan Live! Promo Tour

Allison Williams, the only ‘Girls’ actress who has opted not to go blonde, was out promoting ‘Peter Pan Live!’, the upcoming live television special which is a musical adaptation of the 1954 classic, which is scheduled to air on NBC on December 4, 2014 with Allison starring as the main character, Peter Pan.

Press Junket: Opting not to wear green, the actress wore a pretty Giambattista Valli Resort 2015 dress rendered with the designer’s signature mismatched prints which work so beautifully together. The fit-and-flare silhouette may take it into twee-ville for some, but I think the bold mash up of prints prevents that. The shoes could’ve been a hell of a lot better. Thank God they disappear into the carpet.

‘The Today Show': Showcasing yet more of her style on ‘The Today Show’, the actress wore an ultra-modern look from Preen’s Resort 2015 collection recognisable via the collection’s signature polka dots and bold navy hue. The splashes of red really enliven the dark hue, with the white pumps being the perfect accessory to bring out those white dots. With her hair down on this occasion, you can see that she did in fact change her hair colour, opting for gorgeous highlighted wavy tresses.

Alicia Keys, Madonna & Joan Smalls In Givenchy – 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

Alicia Keys, Madonna & Joan Smalls In Givenchy - 9th Annual Keep A Child Alive Black Ball

The Keep A Child Alive Annual Black Ball held at Hammerstein Ballroom on Thursday (October 30) in New York City turned out to be something of a Givenchy-fest.

Alicia Keys: The pregnant host, who looks ready to pop any day soon, looked divine wearing a sumptuous black satin off-the-shoulder empire-waist Givenchy Couture gown with shimmering silver straps custom made by Riccardo Tisci, who was also in attendance at this charitable event. Matching silver and onyx drop earrings and silver bracelets accessorized her look, with a pop of pink to the lips providing the finishing touch.

Madonna: The queen of pop was in the house, donning a corseted black frock with a delicate black lace skirt from Givenchy’s Spring 2015 collection styled with her signature crucifix, lace gloves, and leather boots which it took three people to help her get into.

Joan Smalls: While brown might not be our favourite red carpet colour, who can argue that Joan Smalls doesn’t look stunning in her Givenchy Spring 2015 keyhole gown with a smattering of shimmering embellishments? Factor in that dark-berry lip and you have me at her feet saying “We are not worthy”. What a goddess.
