On November 17, Keira attended two events to promote The Imitation Game – the first was a luncheon and the second was the New York premiere. Over 450 pictures from both events are now up in the gallery.
On November 14, Keira attended the 18th Annual Hollywood Film Awards where she was awarded the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for The Imitation Game. Over 220 pictures have now been added to the gallery from the event. Images from the San Fransisco screening of The Imitation Game and 173 additional images from the LA screening have also been added to the gallery.
Last night Chanel hosted a special screening for upcoming film The Imitation Game, and Keira was in attendance, looking beautiful as ever. HQ images from the event have now been added to the gallery.
On November 09, Keira hit the red carpet for the Motion Picture Academy’s 6th Annual Governors Awards. HQ images from the event have now been added to the gallery. I’ve also added pictures of Keira from the previously-mentioned Variety Studio Actors On Actors event, as well as additional photoshoot images and magazine scans. Thanks to Luciana, Lindsey and Claudia for all of their donations.

Keira Knightley is one actress used to dressing up in pretty costumes. From Pride and Prejudice to Anna Karenina, the soon to be 30-year-old has worn more than her fair share of corsets and bustles during her career.
So it’s of little surprise that the Hollywood star looks so at ease in Net-A-Porter’s dreamy fairytale of a shoot for its magazine The Edit, wearing a series of girly gowns fit for a princess.
There’s that light-as-air red gown adorned with squirrels by Dolce & Gabbana that makes it look like Keira has just emerged from some magical woods. As does a Red Riding Hood-meets-Tinkerbell Valentino cape embellished with butterflies, while an ethereal white gown by Alexander McQueen paints Keira as a damsel locked up in a tower, waiting for her prince.
But it’s there that the fairy tale ends. Because although it looks like Keira has just stepped out from the pages of a Hans Christian Andersen story, she certainly doesn’t buy into all that stuff. No way. Instead, the actress is thinks it is important that girls and young women don’t grow up expecting a knight in shining armour to rescue them.
‘A friend of mine just had a daughter. It’s a political thing, having a baby girl, in a way that it isn’t for a boy,’ Keira said in the accompanying interview.
‘You think, ‘Oh isn’t this fairy-tale lovely?’ Then suddenly you worry, ‘What am I planting with that? I don’t want her to be waiting around for a man to fix her problems. Maybe it’s a bit silly, but because equality is going so hugely the other way, I think it probably does take being silly to try and swing it back around.’
I’ve just uploaded 1,200 Blu-Ray quality screen captures of Keira Knightley as Gretta from her lovely 2014 film Begin Again.
