Red Carpet Fashion Awards

KeiraKeira Knightley attended the New York Premiere of her latest film Wednesday (June 25) in a beautiful Valentino dress.

While the navy number was enough to wow onlookers, it was her soft tousled hairstyle that truly pulled the full look together.

Celebrity hairstylist Ben Skervin aimed to create a glamorous yet elegantly waved look without looking too harsh.

Ben was inspired by the flowing movement of her dress and felt that Keira’s hair should look and move similarly without losing its shape.

The final classically tousled waved hairstyle perfectly complemented her bold look of the evening.

Using products from the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series, here is how you can recreate this versatile hairstyle yourself:

Prep: After a proper wash and conditioning, Keira’s damp hair was prepped with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse. Using a tennis ball amount of product, Ben applied the mousse throughout the hair at the roots and lengths for soft, touchable volume.

Style: Once mousse is evenly distributed, he neatly blow dried her hair in sections with a medium round brush. The barreled shaped of the brush helps lift the hair at the roots and gives hair added volume you’d otherwise lose if using a flat brush. Once hair is fully dried and evenly blown out, set hair in a centered part.

Wave: To create Keira’s perfect waves, Ben used a 1-inch barrel curling iron throughout the hair. He sprayed each 1 inch section with Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Flexible Hold Hairspray before wrapping each section of hair down the iron. Using this method in place of the classic style of coiling hair up the iron created a soft and polished wave as opposed to a pristine curl. Once each section is set around the iron, release and let cool.

Once hair has sufficiently cooled, give it a naturally tousled look by running fingers through the hair which breaks up the the flawlessly set waves and loosens it up.

Finish: To finish the look, spray hair with a texturizing spray like Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Repair & Finish Spray at the roots for a relaxed and perfectly disheveled look that lasts all evening.

Breaking her Valentino run, the actress wore an Erdem Fall 2014 metallic teal brocade long-sleeved dress accented with patches of gold clustered embellishments and featuring nude tulle straps for an off-the-shoulder illusion.

Keira Knightley In Valentino - 'Begin Again' New York Premiere

Keira Knightley attended the ‘Begin Again’ premiere held at the SVA Theatre on Wednesday (June 25) in New York City following her guest appearance on ‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’.

You may remember back in April, when this movie was presented during the Tribeca Film Festival, that Keira wore Chanel Couture; well it appears that on this occasion she’s turning it into a Valentino fest, wearing her second look by the Italian brand in one day.

On this occasion she wore a Fall 2014 sheer navy tulle gown with a bird print in a contrasting mix of colours, which is classic Keira, both the style and silhouette.

Opting to tease her tresses lightly, she completed her look with Tiffany & Co. ‘Victoria’ platinum diamond earrings and a matching band ring.

Keira Knightley In Valentino - The Daily Show With Jon Stewart

Keira Knightley made a guest appearance on ‘The Daily Show With Jon Stewart’ in New York City on Wednesday (June 25), where she talked about her new movie ‘Begin Again’ ahead of the premiere.

The British actress wore one of her favourite designers, Valentino, selecting a fresh, romantic, minimalist eyelet long-sleeved calf-length dress styled with metallic-silver pumps.

I love how this dress could be from another era, yet the pumps bring this Resort 2015 look right up to date.

Keira completed her look with chic cat-eye shades.

Keira Knightley In Chanel Couture - Chanel Dinner In Honour Of The 2014 Tribeca Film Festival

Following the premiere, Keira Knightley attended the Chanel dinner in honour of the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival closing night film ‘Begin Again’ at Tribeca Grill on Saturday (April 26) in New York City.

Wearing Chanel, again, naturally, the actress selected another waist nipping look from the Spring 2014 Couture collection.

The pale-pink look featuring a key-hole opening, pointy collar and tonal button detailing was styled with a red-hot pair of Bionda Castana scalloped heels for a bold contrast to her pretty pink frock.

Keeping the same hair and makeup from the premiere, which look do you prefer?

I have to say it’s a tie for me. I love the detailing on the first one, but the contrast heels also fill me with great excitement for this look.
