Keira Knightley For Marie Claire UK May 2013


Keira Knightley graces the cover of Marie Claire UK‘s May 2013 issue looking radiant wearing a red Valentino gown shot by Nathaniel Goldberg.

The rest of the editorial sees her wearing Tom Ford, Gucci, Balenciaga and of course her favourites Chanel and Valentino.

In her interview, Keira talks about getting engaged to Klaxons keyboard player James Righton, the definition of success and coping with fame.

The May 2013 issue is out now.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On how she defines success: “I’m not sure if I can define success. I think if I get to the end of my life having hurt as few people as possible, making sure the people who mean the most to me know they have been loved, I will be happy. Success in work, whatever work, will come and go.”

On coping with fame in Hollywood: The machine that allows you to make movies, the trade-off [requires] you to sell it. Selling it means making yourself a public figure. You can’t cultivate the mystery. My problem is I like mystery

On her upcoming wedding to James Righton: “I could have six weddings. God, that would be expensive. We’ve not big-wedding types. I don’t need to have all that. I’m just trying to enjoy the engagement bit. My parents are together after 40 years. The fights are there, but they love each other. It’s not like the first three months, the frost two years, whatever it is, but I think it gets more interesting, or I hope so.”

    The thing about coping with Hollywood? C’mon, your fellow thespians have managed to achieve success w/o selling out. The great Kates, for instance. Blanchett and Winslet. Fix your teeth – that’s the truth. No good actress pouts her lips all day, in every picture. Her answers sound as vague and snoozy as Katie Holmes’.

    She’s very beautiful. The cover is nice, a little awkwardly posed…inside I like the Tom Ford, the Chanel, and the color of the Gucci.

    I do love this editorial, but she always has the same facial expression.

    Isn’t this the exact same image as her American Marie Claire March 2013 cover?

    I’m a girl but I swear she’s the most beautiful woman I have ever seen

    She’s pretty but my gosh, she’s such as wood (acting and fashion editorial wise). Someone please inject some personality into her!
