Keira attended last night at Alice Tully Hall a Black Tie Gala to honor Valentino and its creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli. The event was co-presented with Harper’s Bazaar and included a special performance by Debbie Harry. Keira wore a stunning black dress from the Valentino Fall 2015 Couture collection, and she presented to Valentino creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli their honors.

Keira Knightley is set to be the cover star for the September issue of Elle, and along with four gorgeous covers they have released an extract from her interview which you can read below.
Who better to embody the ELLE spirit than Keira Knightley. Beautiful, talented, well-read, open-minded, opinionated, feminist, fashion-forward, and like ELLE … delivered 30 years ago. In honor of ELLE’s 30th birthday, photographer Paola Kudacki shot four exclusive covers styled by Samira Nasr with 30-year-old actress that highlight ELLE’s dual French and American heritage (ELLE France was founded in 1945) and the vital role that beauty and accessories play in the magazine’s fashion identity.
Holly Millea sat down with Knightley to talk about the power of 30—or what we like to call ‘the new starting line’. To find out what she had to say check out the entire cover story exclusively in the September issue of ELLE—available digitally and in select cities now, and on newsstands nationwide August 18.
Keira is on cover of Austrian magazine Woman, on its July issue, and you are now able to find digital scans in our gallery. The cover used the same photoshoot from Elle UK spread, which I have now added the full session as well.
As Keira is now taking some well-deserved time off, I’ve finally had the chance to upload over 100 high-quality film stills that have been sat on my computer for the past few months, including stills from “London Boulevard”, “Never Let Me Go”, “Begin Again” and “Anna Karenina”.
The beautiful cover imagery of Keira Knightley in repose might be the thing that entices you to pick up the latest issue of Violet, but the interview inside with the actress is what truly makes it a must-have. In conversation with Amanda de Cadenet, Knightley opens up about what it means to be a woman in the film industry, providing thoughtful insight into the problems many actresses—and women on the whole—face in today’s world.
“Where are the female stories? Where are they? Where are the directors, where are the writers? It’s imbalanced, so given that we are half the cinema-going public, we are half the people [who] watch drama or watch anything else, where is that? So yes, I think the pay is a huge thing, but I’m actually more concerned over the lack of our voices being heard,” Knightley states in the mag. “I don’t know what happened through the ’80s,’90s, and ’00s that took feminism off the table, that made it something that women weren’t supposed to identify with and were supposed to be ashamed of. Feminism is about the fight for equality between the sexes, with equal respect, equal pay, and equal opportunity. At the moment we are still a long way off that.”
Knightley also elaborates on her decisions to play empowered women, and says of her role as mathematician Joan Clarke in The Imitation Game: “I think it is interesting that for women in film the problems they face are generally put into the sphere of home and family and not into the workplace. Joan’s real struggles were to get her rightful ‘place at the table,’ and then once she was there, equal pay, which she never came close to.”
Elsewhere in the magazine, female-positive stories are plentiful. Director-screenwriter Nicole Holofcener and Sarah Sophie Flicker discuss female friendships, while photographer Karolin Klüppel traveled to Mawlynnong, India, a village that operates under the principles of a matrilineal society, to photograph young women. Dreamy editorials abound in the back of the book, including those styled by Violet founder Leith Clark and Valentine Fillol-Cordier.
