Last night (Feb 05) Keira Knightley and co-star Benedict Cumberbatch attended a private screening for their film “The Imitation Game” ahead of the BAFTAs on Sunday. Keira looked lovely in a custom Michael Van Der Ham dress. 63 HQ images have now been added to the gallery.
For the first time ever, this year’s 30-page portfolio—featuring no fewer than 44 Blighty icons, from Eddie Redmayne to Dame Judi Dench—comes accompanied by a short film, directed by Bell and viewable right here on VF.com. The film, told in three parts, depicts the Brits “Preparing for War”, then “Coming to America” to infiltrate the film industry. Given the number of British actors nominated for Academy Awards this year, the title of the third film should come as no surprise: “Victory Is Assured.”
Thanks to Ivonne, the full set of scans of Keira Knightley from her cover issue of Elle UK (March) are now up in the gallery.
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 Knightley was recently on the cover for Elle France’s January issue, complete with a new photoshoot. Scans from the magazine and HQ images from the set are now up in the gallery.
The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards took place last night (Jan. 25) and Keira Knightley was in attendance as she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for “The Imitation Game”. Unfortunately she did not win (the award went to Patricia Arquette for “Boyhood”) but she still looked beautiful in a purple Erdem dress, Repossi jewelry, and Tabitha Simmons shoes. The first batch of HQ images – over 350 – have now been added to the gallery, with even more on the way.
The 26th Annual Producers Guild Of America Awards took place last night (Jan. 24) and Keira Knightley was in attendance as “The Imitation Game” was nominated for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures (the award went to “Birdman”). Keira looked lovely, and over 300 HQ images are now up in the gallery. Remember that the Screen Actors Guild Awards are being held tonight and Keira has been nominated, so we shall all keep our fingers crossed for her!
Just a little update today to say that I’ve just updated the gallery with some additional HQ images (stills and a new poster) of Keira Knightley from “The Imitation Game”.
