Keira Knightley has always been one of my favorite actresses, starring in some of my favorite moody, period dramas like Never Let Me Go, Atonement and Pride and Prejudice. This October, she makes her fifth Vogue cover appearance in the last 5 years, as well as covering Harper’s Bazaar UK (below).
I’ve always admired her style and look; her ability to morph into any era thrown at her. All five of her Vogue editorials have been incredibly brilliant. Her June 2007 piece is one of my all time favorites, contrasting femme and romantic looks in a rugged, heritage inspired African safari. It’s insane.
This month is no exception, with Ms. Knightley absolutely killing it in looks from Raf Simon’s Dior Haute Couture debut show. The clothes fit her aesthetic as if they were made for her - modern and sharp, clean lines but still looking as glamorous and luxe as Dior in the 50s. This month’s Vogue seals her as my personal favorite cover girl of Anna Wintour’s era.
