Renowned French luxury brand CHANEL announced that Keira Knightley has been chosen to be the face of the COCO CRUSH ad campaign directed by Mario Testino slated for Fall 2016.
The talented British actress, famous for her role in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ alongside Johnny Depp, is already the face of the perfume COCO MADEMOISELLE and the ROUGE COCO collection. She has been a friend of the House for many years. Thanks to her natural elegance and her freedom, she perfectly embodies this resolutely modern Fine Jewelry collection.
The graphically rich collection featuring the signature quilt motif offers cuff bracelets and rings in 18k white and yellow gold apart from pieces set richly with diamonds. The campaign sees Keira flaunt its awesome statement bracelet as well as several rings on her fingers.
But Keira being Keira, effortlessly amps up the glam quotient by stringing several Coco Crush rings to create a stunning necklace!
After several months playing Thérèse Raquin on Broadway, Keira Knightley will soon star in Collateral Beauty directed by David Frankel.
Stop the press: Keira Knightley just dropped a major truth bomb about her beauty routine. Apparently, the Pirates of the Caribbean star has been wearing wigs for the last five years… but nobody noticed!Apparently, getting into character for various acting roles has really taken a toll on her locks. “I have dyed my hair virtually every colour imaginable for different films,” she told InStyle UK.
“It got so bad that my hair literally began to fall out of my head! So for the past five years I’ve used wigs, which is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to my hair.”
On the bright side, Keira’s hair has become a lot thicker since she became a mother in 2015. “I have naturally crazy, curly hair, and since I’ve had the baby it’s become 10 times thicker. So now I’ve been finding quite a lot of dreadlocks.”
Thinning hair isn’t a problem exclusive to actors preparing for blockbuster films. Plenty of women experience hair loss at some point in their life. Common triggers including stress, hormones, hair dye, over-styling, depression and diet.
In feverish bidding, Fox Searchlight has acquired The Aftermath, a Scott Free-produced adaptation of the Rhidian Brook novel that has Keira Knightley and Alexander Skarsgard in talks to star, with James Kent directing. He helmed Testament Of Youth. Ridley Scott is producing.
Numerous companies vied for the package, but Searchlight closed the deal. Race scribes Anna Waterhouse and Joe Shrapnel adapted the screenplay.
The book, an international bestseller, is set in postwar Germany in 1946. Rachael Morgan arrives in the ruins of Hamburg in the bitter winter, to be reunited with her husband Lewis, a British colonel charged with rebuilding the shattered city. But as they set off for their new home, Rachael is stunned to discover that Lewis has made an extraordinary decision: They will be sharing the grand house with its previous owners, a German widower and his troubled daughter. In this charged atmosphere, enmity and grief give way to passion and betrayal.
Waterhouse and Shrapnel are repped by CAA, Grandview and Curtis Brown UK
Keira Knightley will play the Sugar Plum Fairy in Disney’s upcoming adaptation of The Nutcracker.
She’ll be joined in The Nutcracker and the Four Realms (an adaptation of The Nutcracker and the Mouse King) by Misty Copeland, the first African American woman to be principal dancer in the American Ballet Theater, and Morgan Freeman, according to Variety.
Interstellar star Mackenzie Foy will also feature, while Chocolat and The Cider House Rules director Lasse Hallstrom has also signed on.
Knightley has a close relationship with Disney, and starred in the company’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. She hasn’t starred in a film since 2015’s mountain-climbing drama Everest, but recently made headlines after director John Carney, who worked with her on Begin Again, criticized her.
He said: “It’s hard being a film actor, and it requires a certain level of honesty and self-analysis that I don’t think she’s ready for yet.” He has since apologized for his comments.
Knightley’s next film is Collateral Beauty, in which she stars alongside Will Smith and Kate Winslet. It opens on 16 December in the US.
From Kristen to Cara and Kendall to Lily-Rose, Karl Lagerfeld has certainly adopted an “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude when it comes to his Chanel muses. His wide-ranging roster of go-to models, actresses and general girls-about-town have fronted campaigns for many different categories over the years, and no woman knows that better than one Keira Knightley.
On Monday, Chanel announced that the 31-year-old “It” Brit is the new face of the house’s jewelry line, a role previously filled by models such as Sigrid Agren and Jac Jagaciak. Lest you’ve forgotten, Knightley is as experienced a perennial muse as they come, previously fronting the house’s Coco Mademoiselle perfume and Rouge Coco lipstick, the former of which she began as early as 2007. Fellow Chanel-favorite Mario Testino photographed this round of ads, which are slated to debut in full for fall 2016.
While we certainly don’t blame Lagerfeld for keeping Knightley in the Chanel family, this timing also makes a certain amount of professional sense. With her upcoming dramatic film “Collateral Beauty” due out later this year, she’ll be going on a massive press tour alongside the likes of Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren and Naomie Harris — meaning, there’s many more pristine Chanel red carpet moments in Knightley’s future. We can’t wait.
Barbra Streisand’s Catherine the Great biopic may have found its star. Keira Knightley is in early talks to play the 18th century Russian ruler. Streisand is directing from Kristina Lauren Anderson’s screenplay, which led the 2014 Black List. The story details Catherine’s humble beginnings and her assumption of power following the assassination of her husband Peter III. Gil Netter (Life of Pi) will produce
Keira Knightley is in talks to star in Colette, a biopic about the French novelist who wrote Gigi and Cheri, which Stephen Frears adapted into a feature film starring Michelle Pfeiffer.
Colette will be directed by Still Alice‘s Wash Westmoreland, who co-wrote the script with his late Still Alice collaborator Richard Glatzer. The film will re-unite the producing team behind Carol, Number 9 Films and Killer Films. Bold Films will finance and coproduce the title, marking the company’s first foray into the U.K. Filming will commence in May in Budapest. HanWay Films will handle worldwide sales. Pam Koffler and Christine Vachon (Carol, Still Alice) produce for Killer Films and Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley (Carol, Made in Dagenham) will produce for Number 9 Films. Bold Films’ chairman Michel Litvak will produce for Bold Films. CEO for Bold Films Gary Michael Walters will executive produce.
Born in 1873 during the Belle Epoque, Colette lived through both World Wars, including the Nazi occupation of Paris; her Jewish husband Maurice Goudeket was arrested by the Gestapo in 1941. Though he was later released thanks to the intervention of the French wife of the German Ambassador, the incident left Colette in constant anxiety the Nazis might return to her door. Her most famous work Gigi was published in 1944, about a teenage girl groomed to be a courtesan who defies tradition and marries her wealthy lover instead. The book was first turned into a 1949 French film; Vincente Minnelli’s Oscar-sweeping version a decade later starred Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier, Hermione Gingold and Louis Jourdan.
In later years, Colette became celebrated as a major French literary figure, with Truman Capote writing a short story, The White Rose, about her in 1970. The character is a juicy leading role for Knightley, who costarred most recently in Working Title’s Everest and opposite Benedict Cumberbatch in The Imitation Game. She is repped by United Agents and CAA.
Number 9 Films are having a banner period with the much-lauded Carol and Youth in 2015 , as well as both Juan Carlos Medina’s The Limehouse Golem and Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest Hour and a Half currently in post.
