Keira Knightley is back to promote a film, Boston Strangler, which is about the two female reporters who broke the story and what is was like for these women to be the lead journalists on a case involving a serial kill in the 1960s. Carrie Coon co-stars with Keira and even though reviews have been uneven, I want to see this, specifically because we’re supposed to be focusing on how a journalist who was told she should just be covering the “lifestyle” page was the one who connected the murders, and had to confront what must have been a f-ckload of sexism to expose what was happening.
Also, it’s great to see Keira out on the press circuit. Because she keeps a much lower profile these days than she did in the earlier part of her career. Married now, two children, stays away from the scene, and dips back in to amplify the work – and always with great fashion. We’ve had multiple great outfits from Keira this week, starting with the premiere. This is just a classic Keira Knightley look. Vivienne Westwood corset top and skirt, it’s giving period piece and gothic, fitting with all the period pieces she’s been in. And the Chanel shoes are gorgeous.
Next, a beautifully tailored off-white Gucci set, crisp blue shirt underneath, pretty conservative until you see the shoes – studded and strapped, they give the suit an interesting edge.
From white to black, she then changes into a Celine pantsuit with a white shirt and a bow but what sets this apart is the fitted waistcoat underneath, bringing big barrister energy:
And we’re still not done because now we have what might be my favourite of them all – it’s just SO good. A slouchy, slightly long grey sweater over a Valentino feather skirt, or it could be a dress; it’s effortless and elegant, which is basically the definition of chic.
But there are more feathers – this time popping out underneath an exquisite trench coat, it’s like blow after blow, I can’t…
But she can, and here we have a sheer jumpsuit with a light jacket over top, and a delicate silver belt which, on her, isn’t provocative at all, just incredibly stylish.
And finally, I think, unless she pulls out more today, another banger – gold dress, big sleeves, mid-length, and the perfect shoe choice. What a parade. Great job by her stylist Leith Clark.
