I'm not her biggest fan, but if I could have the face of any celeb...

A recent visit to the cinema meant seeing the critically acclaimed and rightfully so - Atonement. A beautiful film in everyway and even made me shed a tear or two, but that's beside the point! I can hear the yawns already as I mention the name Keira Knightley, but she is perhaps, what Emma Watson was to fashion blogs back in July, meaning she is everywhere! With good reason too though, as Keira, despite her sometimes questionable acting skills, (this does not include Atonement, where Keira was utterly believable in her role) and sometimes irritating manner, she is always impeccably dressed and has in my opinion a face, so exotic, that it is the only face among young actresses today that could achieve iconic status, in years to come.

Recent Red carpet appearances prove Keira to be every inch the screen siren


Still form Keira's upcoming film'The Edge of Love'

It is common knowledge that Keira is forever under speculation about being 'too skinny', 'anorexic' etc. As much as this is a serious subject, these are also serious accusations, based on no grounds other then her skinny frame and lack of 'womanly' features. I find it rather tedious, the fact that she must spend almost every interview denying that she has an eating disorder. To me, Keira does indeed appear skinny but come on, there are so many other actresses and celebrities out there who are too, and rather unlike Keira do not appear as though they naturally are. As well as that a browse through the comments left beneath paparazzi shots of Keira at JustJared.com gives a clear indicator of what many people think of her appearance. Referring to her as 'Queen of the Bobble heads' and 'Walking Death' and saying that 'She looks like she's about to fall over and die', as well as countless "horribles'", "awfuls'" and "fuglys'", just leave me thinking why are you even bothering leaving these remarks. Sure Keira is far skinnier then the average person but amazing as it may seem, some people are naturally slim and obviously sense she works in an image obsessed career she is hardly going to dining out in McDonalds on a daily basis either. In all, I think this Keira bashing is only due to that she has a far more beautiful, striking face then most of Tinseltown put together.



As well as appearing in Atonement, which just for reference has Keira in gentle curls, flimsy floral dresses, 40's trenchs and of course that envious emerald green silk dress, Keira is also the much publicised new face of fragrence Coco Mademoiselle, a post once held by none other then Kate Moss. The advertisement is sumptuous in everyway, and if any one was to be the face of Mademoiselle, then no one could do it better then Keira, what with her natural good looks, that enbody the Chanel elegance. When on the subject of natural good looks, this does actually include her crooked but none the less endearing smile, or what someone on JustJared referred to as her 'British teeth'. Does anyone else find it refreshing that she hasn't had professional orthodontics in this age of perfection?

Keira as she appears in Atonement, a film worth going to see for the sake of beauty as much as it's powerful plot

Her off screen style is very relaxed, youthful with a slight touch of the London rock chick. Wide leg trousers, straw fedoras, long chain necklaces and Topshop dresses. She tends to look very natural and young, and her face is clean of makeup and her hair naturally wavey. Her red carpet style is in my opinion one of the best around, recently anyway, what with her fabulous looks for Atonement promotions. Always very feminine - delicate colours, floaty fabrics and there is almost an innocence in her flawless, ethereal appearance. Chanel, of course is her designer of choice, which means her clothes are classic and ever beautiful too.


Off Duty Keira is always effortlessly stylish



Keira resembles nothing more then a Grecian goddess in this flowing Rodarte ensemble

I'll have to follow those who say she's been looking too skinny lately, nevertheless, beautiful as always. And you're one lucky girl for being able to see "Atonement" while almost all the rest of the world will have to wait until december/january! But talking about Keira again, i'm a great fan of her style inside and outside the red carpet.

she is absolutley gorgeous! she has such unique features that sets her apart from everyone else in hollywood - AND she's extremely talentd and good at picking awesome movies. I have a lot of respect for her and how professional she seems - regarless of her weight.
GREAT POST!

She does look particuarly gorgeous in these pictures, although a little on the thin side if you ask me.

But lets not get into all that...

She is really very pretty, but what about "The Pout".

That Luella B article rings a bell actually. Is it in the Paris Hilton issue? (questionable covergirl choice..)I think I possibly love Luella most because she has a daughter called Stevie..

She does have a pretty face. I do think she used to be a thin but attractive weight, but then she lost more weight. She often dresses in a way that flaunts her ribcage. If she doesn't want to get flack, she might just cover that up. Easy enough solution.

jayne said...

i love keira, if you can't already tell from my blog haha :) she is so gorgeous that obviously the annoying stupid insecure people of the world can't let it go, though i will admit she seems even skinnier than usual recently, but not near anorexic at all! i love her street style, totally chic, and totally age appropriate, and she is always sophisticated and pretty on the red carpet. she rarely bombs. im so jealous all of your europeans have seen atonement! ugg, but at least you're only increasing my enthusiam, with such stellar reviews.

btw, did you hear ireland was voted the best country to live in in the world! cool!

jayne said...

thank you! :) you're awesome too!

i read the ireland thing on bbc.com, i'm not quite sure how it was decided- something about how ireland is moving forward politically, but still had old world traditions. but i understand if you don't get the survery b/c a lot of people always discuss how MN is the best place to raise kids and the best job market, but i certainly disagree with raising kids here haha, well i mean its ok for baseball and soccer teams, and it's got a great zoo and museums, and not a lot of crime, but it's boring as hell for teens haha

riz said...

she does have a gorgeous face - the last pic is the best. angelic but very mature as well...stunning features.

cotton candy said...

penelope said...

keira in my opinion is just like mischa!! i love them both. anyhow.. she's skinny. tt's true. but honestly. eating disorders are tough to spot.. and. let's just hope keira has got a high metabolism rate or smt..

anyhow THANKS FOR D COMMENT!!! anyhow. as for the keira qn. i gta say~ it's crazy to think of her as a bad influence just bcos of her weight and all! i mean; she doesnt do the crazy stuff and she's so grounded!
so i guess i gta use the say:
nvr judge a bk by it's cover...

and IF IF IF IF IF she has an eating disorder; i think i honestly will refuse to belive it too!

love!

I personally adore Keira. She has gorgeous facial/bone structure and I love her style. Thanks for a great post!

dianabobar said...

love her!

discothequechic said...

No, I'm not actually named after Stevie Nicks. It's just a name that my parents loved and if anything, I guess I'm kind of named after Stevie Smith the poet because Smith is my Mum's surname.

So there you go, name analysis, ha!

yesh, shes well good.

Lady N said...

I think she is really pretty and she laughs and smiles a lot, which makes her seem real to me.

Jennifer said...

YOu are right there is something irritating about keira, and some of the comments she makes are pretty dumb she's totally denial about her weight but I think she has amazing sense of style, when I look in my closet I can't help but somethings think 'what would keira wear?" hahah

Mash said...

I m jealous of her because she's beautiful and got style ! and I don't think she s too skinny but that's my own point of view

Moose on the Loose said...

I agree, Keira is one of the few celebs today with an 'iconic' face. Her style is impeccable, and I really want to see Atonement!

She's not too skinny, she's a pear shape, so her upper body is very very lean, and her lower body is fuller. Take a look at some pics of Keira in skinny jeans, or short skirts, and you'll see her hips, thighs and calf aren't as skinny as the rest of her body!She of course knows how to dress to flatter her figure and succeeds!And her face is gorgeous.
