As Keira Knightley Reveals She Faced A Pout Ban, We Bring You The Evolution Of The Actress' Trademark Lip Plumping

23 January 2014 by

Keira Knightley's pout is in the same league as Angelina's right leg and Cara's eyebrows. It could totally have a blue tick on Twitter. But Keira's pout has an enemy. It turns out she was slapped with a pout ban, as her director on Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, Joe Wright, told her to stop with the plumped up lips.

On this week's episode of The Graham Norton Show Keira confesses: 'I've got it out of my system. I didn't know I did it so much, and Joe banned it from the film.' But he realised he had made a mistake as Keira added: 'Then, when we did the Chanel adverts he said, 'You know that pout we banned? Can we have it back and as much as possible.' Well if it's good enough for Karl...

Keira's perfect Chanel pout

So when did she pout do herself? We have used this as the perfect excuse to spend the morning looking at pictures of Keira Knightley. This is in the name of important research, of course, as we have tracked the evolution of Keira's trout pout. It was there in Bend It Like Beckham and you could see it coming on her early episode of The Bill.

Low points include the foundation lips pout and the gappy trout pout, but by the time it came to The Oscars in 2006 she had perfected it. Chanel Rouge helped. Now Keira owns her pout and will do a Posh Spice smooch at the cameras just for LOLs. See Keira's pout evolution in the gallery above...
