Keira Knightley looks brand spanking new (sorry) in her latest shoot for Interview magazine. Snapped by famed photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, the Brit actress shows a whole new side to her 27-year-old self. We’re talking seriously shaded cheekbones, a fierce red pout, a power-shouldered jacket and skin-tight leather trousers. Yep, Keira has officially gone to the dark side and we couldn’t love her vampy look any more.
Brilliantly, Keira is interviewed by David Cronenberg, the director of her latest film, A Dangerous Method and when asked about those spanking scenes in the flick, KK says that we Brits seem to be obsessed. ‘People liked the spanking an awful lot. But I’m not quite sure. It’s weird, though, with the spanking. When we were in Venice, I didn’t get asked about it once... But in England, it was pretty much the only thing I got asked about. I’m not quite sure what that says about the English.’ What? Us?
Keira’s photoshoot also sees her in a pop art-esque pose rocking the androgynous look with slicked back hair. Is she reminding anyone else of Edward Scissorhands on the cover? Either way, we've never seen the star looking so edgy and how refreshing it is to see her out of those corsets. But what do you make of Ms Knightley's striking look?
