Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Keira Knightley looks as regal as ever on the cover of American Vogue’s October 2012 issue wearing Chanel Couture…of course…with her latest movie ‘Anna Karenina’ set to hit theatres with a limited release on November 16th.

The British beauty continues to stun in the rest of her editorial which sees her wearing yet another Chanel Couture gown, Dior Couture, Valentino Couture and costume from the Anna Karenina movie, designed by Jacquelin Durran and shot by Mario Testino.

Keira talks to the mag about everything from being a feminist, to wanting to do another theatre performance and her fiancé James Righton.

Here are some extracts from her interview.

On being a feminist: “I remember doing interviews, and people would ask, as if it was a joke, ‘So you mean you are a feminist?’ As though feminism couldn’t be discussed unless we were making fun of it. I don’t want to deny my femininity, but would I want to be a stay-at-home mother? No. On the other hand, you should be allowed to do that, as should men, without being sneered at.”

On wanting to do another live performance: “I’d love to do a new play. I think it works particularly well with period drama. The characters that you like will often say something directly about your own life choices.”

On accepting challenging on-screen roles: “I’m not really interested in the kinds of women who just take their clothes off or have a sex scene and then say something cool. I think a lot of people want to play heroic characters, and that’s it, but I don’t find that very compelling. It’s far more interesting to think about characters whose actions don’t always make sense.”

On her character Anna Karenina: “She is both a villain and a heroine. She can be incredibly vain and manipulative. She is somebody who breaks her own moral code, and yet the shame and disgust she lives with because of that make her fascinating.”

On whether she’ll spend Christmas with her family or fiancé Jame Righton’s family: “I have no idea; it’s a massive question. My family was just four and very simple. Now all of a sudden it’s breaking into different parts. I cannot imagine my mother letting us go.”

Even though this was one of the strongest competitions for BDOTW which we’ve had all year, Keira Knightley was still streets ahead of everyone else.

She stunned us wearing a beautiful Elie Saab Couture gown to the ‘Anna Karenina’ Toronto Film Festival premiere.

Keira Knightley dazzled at the premiere of her film ‘Anna Karenina’ at the 2012 Toronto Film Festival last night.

The actress chose a black Elie Saab gown from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection for the event.

The gown is a similar cut to the Chanel Couture ensemble she wore to the London premiere earlier this week – this look, however, is far superior.

The lace detail is beautiful rather than bulky and the narrower belt works better on her waist. Even the sheerness is done tastefully, resulting in a sophisticated silhouette.

Keira finished her look with a side-swept fringe, Chanel earrings and Gucci heels.

Keira Knightley made a welcome return to the red carpet this evening for the World Premiere of her latest movie, ‘Anna Karenina’ which was held at The Odeon Leicester Square in London.

As we know she goes one of two ways for a major premiere; Chanel or Valentino.

On this occasion she choose the former, selecting a pink gown from Chanel’s Fall 2012 Couture collection, which is our first look of this collection on the red carpet.

I’m going to be honest and say I’m not crazy about the gown.

I love the delicate sheer flutter sleeves and the decorative floral appliqués which cascade from around her neckline, down the front of the gown, but I can’t get over how stiff the whole look feels; the skirt is particularly bothersome.

Smoky eyes and a side parted updo completed her look.

Back in May Linda Evangelista was spotted wearing an Erdem ‘Anouska’ floral dress from the Spring 2012 collection while on her way to the Manhattan Family Court.

The model looked like a woman who meant business, teaming her dress with a beige Chanel quilted bag, black shades and black pumps.

Keira Knightley was spotted wearing the same Erdem dress while taking a stroll in Manhattan with fiance James Righton.

The British actress, who was looking very girlie and all loved up, chose to keep the look simple, pairing the dress with Tapeet sandals and a black quilted Chanel bag.

I like how girlie this dress can be, but also how it can be dressed up or down, as both these celebs have showcased.

I’m not feeling Linda’s pumps with this delicate look, so Keira wins for me.
