Keira Knightley in Chanel at the ‘Little Black Jacket’ UK event: lovely or meh?

These are some photos from a London event last night. The event was “Chanel: The Little Black Jacket”. There were some decent celebrities at the event, but I just want to talk about Keira Knightley and Sam Taylor Wood (Sam Taylor Johnson?!). First, Keira. She’s wearing Chanel. She looks pretty. Her fiancé was not by her side. There are rumors that Keira will get Karl Lagerfeld to design her wedding gown. Does that make sense to you? I can see Keira being into the Chanel drama and detail for a potential wedding gown, but I feel like Keira becomes less fussy and more hippie about everything as she gets older. Still… a Chanel wedding gown is nothing to sniff at, and if anyone could pull it off, I’m sure it’s Keira. As for her little Chanel outfit here… I really do like it. I like her hair these days too.

And here are photos of Sam Taylor Johnson and Aaron Taylor Johnson at the same event. Sam looks GREAT. Her body really rebounds after having babies, doesn’t it? And I like her Chanel ensemble even more than Keira’s. As for Aaron… I used to be attracted to him. I used to think Sam had scored the Cougar Grand Prize with Aaron – a talented actor, with a great body and a beautiful face. But I have to wonder… was a Aaron kind of a goober this whole time? And by that I mean… is Aaron pretty dorky? I’m getting the feeling that he is pretty dorky.

    Something weird just happened as I though the first pic was of Ali de la Lohan… ?!

  2. Brown says:

    I love Keira. Love her face. She looks like a deer in headlights in these pics, though.

  3. mk says:

    She looks great. Keira is my new Winona in the face. They are both so so actors, really. But their faces change for their parts, and that is a skill.

    • V4Real says:

      I always thought Keira, Natalie Portman and Winona sort of had similar features.

      • honeychurch says:

        One of Keira’s first parts was as Natalie Portman’s “decoy” in Star Wars Episode I – alongside Rose Byrne.

        Why do I remember stuff like that?

      • Christina says:

        I think Portman and Knightley are similar in lots of ways. Both have the same ‘big eyes scary face’ sort of appearance. Both look stunning in photographs, but lack charisma and sex appeal in motion. Both have an oddly adolescent look about them.
        Both come from privileged backgrounds and adopt an aloof attitude which makes them seem much more interesting and talented than they really are.

        And most importantly of all, both are terrible actors.

      • alons-y alonso says:

        Oh, Christina! I thought I was the only one that thought Kiera Knightly was extremely overrated!!! Portman too!

    • lower-case deb says:

      if for some reason there’s going to be some meta-narrative thing on The Rise and Fall of the Lohans, she’ll probably be cast as Ali. Also Alexa Chung looks like her also. And she’s already played Portman “ish”, as @honeychurch mentioned.

      bets on which person she’ll be taking on next?

      still my most favorite quote of all time on Keira Knightley:
      “In time, every woman in literature and history will have been played by Keira Knightley.”

      All very pretty, but for me, Keira is the best actress of the three.

      I STILL am holding a grudge after being subjected to Natalie Portman’s “acting” in Star Wars. It was laugh out loud bad. When they gave her the Oscar, I… wasn’t happy.

      Winona is even worse. I still can’t forget her High-School-Drama-class-worthy performance in, “Night on Earth.” My film class actually spent more talking talking about her bad acting than the Director.

  4. Aria says:

    I thought she was the girl from Shameless.

  5. Lindsey says:

    Yes Aaron is a dork. A hot, bangable dork with cuyl locks and a beautiful face.

    But all that gets canceled out b/c he’s a dork :-( oh phoeey

  6. gee says:

    All three of them look great. So rare to see everyone in a set look good.

  7. Louise says:

    No way, she looks awful. The dress, particularly the bodice, doesn’t fit her and it looks like she’s wearing no makeup and her hair isn’t done

  8. Kaye says:

    She looks like a totally different person when she’s animated and smiling.

    • savedbykittylitter says:

      Yeah she has a moon face with a weird jaw here, she was so gorgeous in potc 1, she should have her hair blonde and use pink lipstick like in the movie

  9. Micki says:

    I don’t like her dress.Too unshapely for her

  10. kingkayski says:

    This is actually the first time that i like her face and what’s shes wearing.She looks so innocent and young here,love it.

  11. Meg13 says:

    I love Sam’s dress. The renaissance sleeves are pretty without being too fussy.

  12. Luise says:

    I like Keira’s dress. I do feel she’s gone a little over board with the plastic surgery. Her nose job is way over done. Way too thin.

  13. Suzy (from Ontario, Canada) says:

    Keira used to be so stunning but lately she looks drab. This outfit does nothing for her.

  14. La Calabaza says:

    She looks pretty but different.

  15. lrm says:

    awesome shoes on keira;
    i think she’s beautiful, but lately looks plastic-which is strange as she is quite young and why don’t the ‘classic looking’ actors just age normally? i mean, keira has an elegant look, has no trouble getting work, etc. she should just not eff with her face. geesh.

  16. citygirlsf says:

    It’s the lips. Looks like she used concealer for lipstick.

  17. citygirlsf says:

    As for the underbite, I think it’s one of the things that makes her face interesting. I like it.

  18. gee_gee says:

    In that last pic she looks like one of Bruce Willis’ daughters. Like there is all this un-used surface area on her face but she has little tiny features.

  19. Rachele says:

    I love me a dorky man, maybe Sam does too?

  20. Kyle says:

    Conspiracy theory: Sam was never pregnant.

  21. Abby says:

    I love keira, but she looks surprised here… not flattering photos at all. Cute outfit though.
