Keira Knightley was clearly not a damsel in distress when she stepped out in this damson dress last night. In London for the premiere of new film 'A Dangerous Method', the actress was a picture of elegance in the floor-sweeping, key-hole gown, accented with nothing more than a simple black bow at the wait. It came courtesy of the ever-talented Christopher Bailey and his fashion wonderland, Burberry Prorsum. Paired with a dramatic smoky eye, a low-key up 'do and that signature pout, Ms Knightley proves that you don't need to flash the flesh to steal the spotlight.
As a long-time fan of the British brand, this is not the first time we've seen Keira + Burberry. The gorgeous star is regularly snapped sporting Mr Bailey’s iconic military trench coats, biker jackets and shearling winter warmers (check them out in the gallery above). So much so, they've become her uniform for off-duty dressing. And such is her love for the label, Keira's evern confessed to splurging £4000 on her favourite Burberry coat.
After posting the image of Keira working Burberry last night on Grazia UK’s Facebook page, compliments for the ensemble came flooding. Stephen Morris likened her to a modern Audrey Hepburn: “Goes to show that elegance never goes out of style.” We agree, Stephen! Meanwhile, Milica Marković praised her unique style, writing: “classic and rather sophisticated, that's why I adore her.” As for Debbie King-Robinson, she noted: “Fabulous rouge noir gown, black accessories, severe hair and smoky eyes give this a glam goth edge.” Hear, hear!
So will we see Keira on the front row when the Burberry Prorsum catwalk show rolls into London Fashion Week? Here's hoping...
