Keira Knightley In Erdem – ‘Anna Karenina’ LA Premiere

Just when she was starting to become a tad predictable, Keira Knightley switched things up at the ‘Anna Karenina’ LA premiere held at the ArcLight Hollywood in California yesterday evening.

I was starting to tire of the samey Valentino gowns, so thank heavens Erdem Moralioglu created this custom gown for the British actress, which was inspired by his Spring 2013 collection.

The mint duchess-satin strapless gown features the same blue lace embroidery we saw on the runway.

That punchy pink lip is to die for. She really wanted to mix things up on this occasion.

A pinned updo and star diamond-encrusted Chanel earrings completed her look.

    I am not a fan of Keira’s but I think she looks absolutely gorgeous and glowing here.

  2. Anna November 15, 2012 at 09:24 #

    This is probably the first ever look of hers that I really-really like. Everything about it.
    Well, except for the hands in the pockets.

      i agree, so nice to see some color, and it still works with her very soft feminine redcarpet style.

      +3 She looks stunning – so glad she’s switching things up!

    I d’ont like the color. This look is dull.

    Love it!, especially the make-up.

  7. Alexa November 15, 2012 at 09:48 #

    this dress is so feminine and absolutely heavenly !!!

  8. Jess2 November 15, 2012 at 09:51 #

    Simply amazing!! She looks so beautiful, I really love this look and am also excited that she went for something unpredictable. I’ve always loved Keira in Erdem!

  9. Dani November 15, 2012 at 09:51 #

    The hair, makeup, dress… all perfect. This is going on my BDOTY list!

    Thank God for color! She looks gorgeous! That lip color is doing wonders.

  12. Ilaria November 15, 2012 at 10:03 #

    She’s a goddess. I love it!

  13. Beta November 15, 2012 at 10:09 #

    divine!! BDOTW for me :)
    I always enjoy Keira Knightley on the red carpet, this look is no exception, amazing! the colour, the embroidery, the train, makeup, hair. Perfection.

  14. Martin November 15, 2012 at 10:25 #

    Words almost escape me. Almost. This is a phemomenal look from Keira – she has probably worn a hundred Valentino gowns over the past couple of years but this Erdem creation has put each and every one of them to shame – I have never seen her look so poised, so ethereal, so angelic, so memorable. Best dressed of the week – absolutely. Best Dressed of the year – very probably. Divine.

  15. Tilly November 15, 2012 at 10:42 #

    Surprisingly good! Love the lips and eyes.

  16. Pablo November 15, 2012 at 10:56 #

    Amazing! So regal! Cate Blanchett would be proud! :)

  17. Serena November 15, 2012 at 11:13 #

    This is to die for. Speechless.

  18. Ramsay November 15, 2012 at 11:15 #

    Ok she looks breathtaking – no question about that – a delicate and romantic look like she’s been giving us over the last 2 years or so
    What bugs me however (and this applies to most actresses these days, look at Kristen Stewart and her embroidered Zuhair Murad for once obvious and recent instance) is that this is too much for a movie premiere – this dress could easily be worn to the Golden Globes or the Oscars – Everyone in the current red carpet frenzy seem to be overdressing for movie premieres
    I do believe that a cocktail dress, a jumpsuit, a simple long dress (no embroidery or train) should be enough for these occasions

  19. TeaAtTwo November 15, 2012 at 11:23 #

    BDOTW maybe even BDOTY worthy. I love this.

  20. the ogre November 15, 2012 at 11:34 #

    now we’re talking…divine! such a beautiful dress…and an equally lovely colour…sigh! even the twilight people didn’t get so good. this is class apart.

  21. bas November 15, 2012 at 12:13 #

    Breathtaking. Abslut perfection. How she always manages to look so regal is beyond me. J’adore.

  22. Mandy November 15, 2012 at 12:20 #

    Yes, finally we have colour! Beautiful i love the pink lippy with the mint green dress. Stunning.

  23. Betelgeuze November 15, 2012 at 13:10 #

    Wow. Love it.
    It looks like it will be a tough BDOTW competition this week.

    Love it! BDOTW! Love the dress and color, perfect hair and makeup.

  26. Christine November 15, 2012 at 13:17 #

    Wow, she looks drop dead gorgeous. Love this!

  27. dee November 15, 2012 at 13:47 #

    She looks beautiful. Love the colors.

  28. Agathe November 15, 2012 at 13:51 #

    …aaaaand she just made it to the BDOTW list!

  29. Glenda November 15, 2012 at 13:51 #

    She looks absolutely divine! The mint green is such a great colour on her, her hair gives me early Downton vibes and I love the draping of the fabric. Only a

  30. Violetta Parr November 15, 2012 at 14:02 #

    Brilliant. The Grace Kelly resemblence she wanted to obtain, which wouldn’t be so strong without Keira’s natural elegance btw, has a lot more impact than the lovely but not that extraordinary dress itself.
    She’s simply drop dead gorgeous.

    I’m referring to Grace’s Oscar gown (;

  33. Jai November 15, 2012 at 14:16 #

    Wow. Agree with what the previous poster said about this being wasted on a premier. If this was the Oscars it would go down as an ATG fashion moment. It should anyway. She looks divine.

  34. Emmeline November 15, 2012 at 14:30 #


    I thought I had already decided on my BDOTW, but I’m having serious second thoughts. Keira looks absolutely stunning.

  35. Eni November 15, 2012 at 14:31 #

    Beautiful. Flawless!

  36. Lee November 15, 2012 at 14:41 #

    Wow! She looks amazing! BDOTW for sure… and I wouldn’t be surprised if this becomes a BDOTY nominee.

  37. e November 15, 2012 at 15:00 #

    She looks breathtaking and I love the pink lips!

  38. Taylor November 15, 2012 at 15:04 #

    She looks great…and barely a pout in sight.

  39. Moxie November 15, 2012 at 15:21 #

    Fabulous! Definitely worthy of a BDOTW nod.

  40. Rebecca Z November 15, 2012 at 15:37 #

    I love the dress and she looks really pretty, but given that it was made for her, why is it too long??? I almost ruins the look for me.

    In response to those who think that overdressing is going on–maybe, but what fun would it be if we only got to see dresses like this 3-4 times a year?

  41. delphine November 15, 2012 at 16:01 #

    Bye Kristen, I found my bdotw ! I love everything about this look

  42. Camille November 15, 2012 at 16:16 #

    Breathtaking! Just wish we could see the shoes. With the right pair of shoes peeking out beneath the skirt this would have been perfect!

  43. Andrew November 15, 2012 at 16:49 #

    Outstanding! Definite contender for BDOTY for me!

  44. robbie November 15, 2012 at 16:50 #

    im going to be an absolute pain and say i dont like the length at the front, if it was just a tiny bit shorter it would be perfect.

  45. Nat39 November 15, 2012 at 18:45 #

    I can’t say BDOTY worthy but by all means a deserving BDOTW contender. It’s a memorable look for her and she is working it.

  46. Glenda November 15, 2012 at 20:02 #

    Ugh, I really hope Anna Karenina makes a splash during awards season. The red carpets would be so much more interesting with Keira on them!

    That being said, if she’s up for BDOTY, it should preferably be for (a) the pink Chanel couture gown or (b) the black Elie Saab couture gown.

  47. Yeliz November 15, 2012 at 20:56 #

    Apparently I’m the only one not loving everything about this look. She does looks fantastic and I love the colour and her hair and make-up, but there is just too much fabric on the back for my tastes and the back doesn’t have a shape either.

  48. Dhppy November 15, 2012 at 21:26 #

    Note perfect. Not only lovely in it’s own right, but also in the romantic theme of the film she’s promoting.

  49. ash November 15, 2012 at 22:07 #

    I think this the best dress I’ve seen in a long time on the red carpet, it screams 60s Balenciaga couture without being an obvious replica. LOVE THE COLOUR!!

  50. roxana November 16, 2012 at 00:06 #

    the dress on the runway is amazing! she is lovely, as always.

  51. Noemi November 16, 2012 at 08:16 #

    I love this girl’s style. This dress is beautiful, it looks a bit like a costume (in a good way) and I’m starting to like a lot the “trend” of the pockets, so women can leave clutches at home (we all know that they’re useless). I also love her hairstyle, she’s becoming one of my fashion icons. It’s gonna be hard to choose the BDOTW.

  52. Lyvm November 16, 2012 at 12:15 #

    Only keira could wear this shade of yellow with florals without looking stuck in a childhood phase. Well done.

  53. snowlion November 17, 2012 at 13:17 #

    I gasped the first time I saw this, and I’m back fr another look. Perfection, just utterly beautiful, really, I’m swooning.

  54. robert November 17, 2012 at 18:52 #

    Im not a fan of the pockets on dresses trend. It looks too loose. This needs to be fitted.

  55. EmmaWoodhouse November 18, 2012 at 03:55 #

    Beautiful, modern “sacque” dress of the late 1700s, modernized in this lovely color, which, as another commenter said resembles Grace Kelly’s Oscar dress. BDOTW-worthy without a doubt, only wish that she’d kept her hands out of her pockets.
