Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Premiere Of Paramount Pictures' "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" - Red CarpetCelebrity makeup artist Kate Lee created Keira Knightley’s smouldering smudged-eye look for the ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ LA premiere yesterday evening.

Here is how she created Keira’s look.

Considering Keira wore a navy Chanel dress with white details, Kate wanted to keep her looking more of the moment, and so she went for a creamy navy smudged eye.

As Keira had just got off the plane a few hours earlier, Kate prepped the skin with Chanel Hydra Beauty to hydrate and give a great base for a natural-looking complexion. Kate then used Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua 20 Beige to give a nice uniform glow. On the eye she started out by lining the inside of the upper and lower lash lines with Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof Marine.

Next she reached for Chanel Illusion d’ Ombre Apparition, which is a beautiful shimmering navy, to melt away the lines and give a soft effect. To finish off the eyes, she curled the lashes and gave them one coat of Chanel Inimitable Noir Mascara.

On the cheeks, for definition and a nude blush she used Chanel le Blush Creme de Chanel Cheeky (Summer 2014 Collection).

To finish, Kate used Chanel Rouge Coco Mademoiselle for a natural blushing lip.

Keira Knightley In Chanel - 'Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit' LA Premiere

Keira Knightley attended the Los Angeles premiere of ‘Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit’ held at TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday (January 15) in Hollywood, California.

I was surprised there was no grand gown on this occasion, as usually when she makes a return to the red carpet she slays us with an exquisite gown which we instantly add to our BDOTY list, but that wasn’t the case on this occasion.

The look was surprisingly muted, and I find myself really loving it, much to my surprise.

The white-trimmed navy Chanel frock with bow accents might be considered by some as boring, but I find it very chic and sophisticated; something from a bygone era which I can only picture someone else like Cate Blanchett or Michelle Dockery pulling off.

Smoky blue eyes and a wavy updo completed her look.

Fabulous or frumpy?

Keira Knightley In Chanel Couture - SeriousFun London Gala 2013

Keira Knightley made a welcome return to the red carpet yesterday evening for the SeriousFun London Gala 2013 held at The Roundhouse in London.

The British actress looked pretty wearing one of her favourite brands, Chanel, selecting a dress from their Spring 2006 Couture collection featuring sheer sleeves with embroidered details which she style with gold Jimmy Choo ‘India’ sandals.

If you’re having a case of déjà vu, that’s because it’s the same dress she wore at the 2008 BAFTA party and at her wedding, which took place in the south of France on May 4 of this year.

I like the fact that on this occasion the dress was modified to give it a new twist and differentiate the look.

Would you ever recycle your wedding dress for an evening out?

Keira Knightley In Mary Katrantzou - 'Can A Song Save Your Life' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Keira Knightley took to the red carpet at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Canada yesterday evening for the Toronto Film Festival premiere of ‘Can A Song Save Your Life?’

She was the one I was looking out for at this festival and she didn’t disappoint, turning to maestro of prints Mary Katrantzou who created this enchanting bucolic landscapes and painterly murals print strapless calf-length strapless dress, with a fully-boned bodice and voluminous pleated skirt.

I was expecting another Valentino Couture gown, but this chic frock doesn’t disappoint. I’m glad she went left, when I was expecting her to go right.

Keeping her accessories to a minimum to let this head-turner speak for itself, she styled her frock with nude Christian Louboutin ankle strap suede pumps, smoky eyes and a tousled updo.

Keira Knightley In Valentino Couture - Valentino Ball

Keira Knightley and her husband James Righton (in Valentino) attended the Valentino Ball held at Palazzo Volpi during the 2013 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday evening.

The British actress of course wore a look from the latest Valentino Fall 2013 Couture collection, selecting a sheer long-sleeved gown with gold-leaf embroidery and a layered neckline.

Some may have opted for more coverage, wearing a bodysuit or layering the look from top to bottom, but Keira wore the dreamy autumnal piece as presented with a bralet and hot pants.

Taking some inspiration from the runway, she styled her hair into a centre-parted ‘do with a few face-framing tendrils opting out of the single braid.

Keira will be premiering her latest movie, ‘Can A Song Save Your Life?’, during Toronto Film Festival tomorrow so the question is can she outdo herself?
