Quoting Keira
"All through my life what I've loved doing is watching movies. I love the escapism of film, I love stories. So it is incredible to be able to be in them as much as I am, to see them from the first stitch in a costume to the end product."
Keira’s year: Oscars, babies & Chanel

Our favourite actress, cover star and, frankly, person was typically self-deprecating and candid on our cover shoot, where she was photographed by Mariano Vivanco in Chanel, as she is revealed as the face of the Coco Rouge line.

‘Lipstick is an armour to the world,’ she told us. ‘My mum had a thing when we were growing up – if she’d had a sh*t day or if something had gone wrong, she’d put her red lipstick on. I still abide by that.

‘If you’re doing something hard, a really vibrant colour is a good thing. Lips are the easiest thing to put colour on. The nose doesn’t work so well – it’s a tricky look. Lips, however: quite good.’


Keira also revealed that she was never intended to be called Keira.

‘I was meant to be named “Kiera”, after a Russian ice skater who was on the TV one day. My dad fancied her and nicked her name for me. But it was my mum who went to register my birth, and she accidentally spelled “ei” instead of “ie” because my mum’s crap at spelling.

‘Apparently, when she came back he said: “WHAT THE F*CK? You’ve spelt her name wrong!” What were they going to do, though? Once it’s on the piece of paper, it’s on the piece of paper. And that’s me. A spelling error.’

However, Keira has always been a fan of non conformity: ‘Break the rules. I’ve always hated the idea that you should be wearing this or that, because it makes me feel like I’m getting everything wrong. I hated it at school, and I don’t want it as an adult.

‘If you want to wear a f*cking flowerpot on your head and that makes you happy, then wear a f*cking flowerpot on your head.’
