Fresh-faced and fancy-free Keira Knightley, looks gorgeous in a new promo video for Chanel’s fine jewelry collection, Coco Crush.
The collection, which launched in June 2016, offers elegant rings and bracelets with timeless designs set with delicate diamonds. Knightley herself models a few of the rings in the short video, which features the actress answering rapid fire and “would you rather” type questions. In the video, the actress wears her hair pulled back into a simple low ponytail, looking gorgeous in minimal makeup, and a simple black cardigan over a white shirt.
We’ve already had one trailer for Will Smith’s latest drama, “Collateral Beauty”. This new one doesn’t expand much on the concept, but does offer some new scenes. Check it out below.
“Collateral Beauty” is in cinemas Boxing Day – Starring Will Smith, Edward Norton, Keira Knightley with Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Michael Peña and Naomie Harris.
Our gallery was updated with additional 100+ HQ images of Keira last night receiving the Theatre Icon award at the Harper’s Bazaar Women Of The Year Awards. She was looking fantastic in a bold emerald green Erdem gown. Check our gallery.
Keira is gracing the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK, in its December issue.
British actress Keira Knightley is renowned for her performances in films including Pride & Prejudice, Love Actually, Pirates of the Caribbean and Atonement. But as well as starring on the big screen, she has received critical acclaim for her appearances on stage in The Misanthrope, The Children’s Hour and, most recently, Thérèse Raquin on Broadway.
In recognition of this, Knightley will be honoured with the Theatre Icon award at the Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards ceremony in London on 31 October.
In an exclusive interview for the December issue, the 31-year-old talks candidly about gender inequalities, childcare and her family.
On why she thinks parental leave should be equal for both men and women:
‘I think paternity leave should be the same as maternity leave. It’s shocking. Because you need that option. And actually, when you’re thinking about an employer looking at a man and a woman thinking, “Well, at some point you could take nine months or however long off, and the guy doesn’t have to.” Don’t tell me that that doesn’t come into it! You need to be a family unit, not just have the guy there for two weeks and then go back to work and the mother left desperately trying to figure it out. I think it’s archaic that there aren’t better options.’
On the cost of childcare:
‘One of the things that is so shocking in this country is that childcare is unbelievably expensive. It should be, it’s an amazing thing if you’re good at it. It’s incredibly difficult, it should be well paid. But there is no option for a woman to go back to work unless she’s being paid really, really well and can afford full-time care before [her child can] get into nursery. I think I’ve become unbelievably aware of that and how lucky I’ve been to be able to afford really good childcare, because otherwise it would be at least four years out of my career. I wouldn’t be able to get back to where I’d been if I’d taken four years out. I think that’s the same for most women. And I think that’s really hard.’
On embracing the changes to her body since the birth of her daughter Edie:
‘It’s a different body, as it should be, because it’s done an extraordinary thing…I thought I was going to go, “God, I’ve got to get back into shape.” I actually went completely the opposite. I went, “F**k that, I’m not putting that pressure on myself in any way.” So it’s taken me a long time to get back into my jeans. I’m nearly there. Not quite there, but nearly there…’
On her energetic daughter:
‘[She is] like a ballistic missile. She’s at about a million miles an hour from the second she wakes up to the moment she goes to sleep. She doesn’t want you to help her do anything.’

It already has nearly 900,000 signatures and will be delivered to the UN Secretary General and the President of the UN General Assembly on Friday September 16 ahead of the historic UN Summit on Addressing Large Movements of Refugees and Migrants on September 19.
