Keira Knightley attended the 2011 National Board Of Review Awards Gala in New York City last night.

It’s not often we see the British star opting for a head-to-toe black look, but she did so wearing a black Nina Ricci Resort 2012 dress.

Her cap-sleeve chiffon dress with a lace-front panel prevents this from being a typical LBD.

A Chanel handbag, black tights and black Roger Vivier velvet sandals blend into the background, so I wish she’d opted for pieces which stood out.

Wavy locks and dark coral lip colour finished the look.

Rarely do I say this about Keira, but she can do much better. I feel very let down by this look and I wish she’d kept the belt.
