Keira Knightley Goes Topless In The September Issue Of Interview Magazine

28 August 2014 by


Last week we brought you Keira Knightley's cover of the September Issue of Interview Magazine shot by Patrick Demarchelier. Now we have a look at her black and white shoot from inside the mag, where she has wet hair and goes totally topless - wearing nothing but black tuxedo trousers and lace gloves. Talk about free the nipple.

The September Issues of Interview

While US Vogue is paying tribute to the hottest models on Instagram for their September Issue, Interview Magazine is recognising some of the world's most influential photographers.

Interview editor in chief Keith Pollock didn't select his September cover stars, but asked six photographers to move beyond the view finder and take a spin in the editor's chair. They were asked to select their own cover star who they believe represents beauty.

So who do they think is beautiful? Steven Klein picked Nicole Kidman, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott selected Naomi Campbell, Patrick Demarchelier chose Keira Knightley, Craig McDean tapped Amber Valletta, Peter Lindbergh selected Léa Seydoux and Mikael Jansson photographed Daria Werbowy. Inside the issue, each cover star then interviewed the photographer. Except for Alas and Piggott, who were interviewed by Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci.

Keith Pollock, editor in chief, said to WWD: “It was like doing six cover shoots. There were no restrictions. There was a lot of travel. We shot in Sweden, Ibiza, London, Paris, New York. No photographer was in the same place.”

“I think that themed issues are very ambitious. It can be such a huge risk,” he added. “But it was really wonderful, and there were moments when I thought this was going to tank, but we really pulled it off.”

Out of the six covers, we have a divine black and white portrait of Keira Knightley by Patrick Demarchelier wearing a black plunging top with her wet hair falling over her face. Naomi Campbell's portrait by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott meanwhile shows  Naomi Campbell looking fierce in nothing but statement gold cuffs and choker.

Peter Lindbergh's cover is a beautiful, delicate portrait of Lea Seydoux, while Craig McDean shows Amber Valletta sat in an office chair with slicked back hair, a plaid suit, mens wrist watch, suit and mens belt. The majority of the photographers selected black and white cover images - Naomi Campbell and Nicole Kidman's are the only two in colour.
