SENSE & SEN­SU­AL­ITY

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

While shoot­ing Atone­ment, di­rec­tor Joe Wright had Keira Knight­ley’s se­duc­tive pout banned. She laughs at the mem­ory: “I didn’t know I was do­ing it so much, and Joe banned it from the film. Then when we did the Chanel ad­verts he said, ‘You know that pout we banned? Can we have it back and as much as pos­si­ble?’” Wright first met Knight­ley dur­ing au­di­tions for Pride & Prej­u­dice. A segue from their col­lab­o­ra­tions, Chanel had the duo re­an­i­mate the free-spir­ited Coco Made­moi­selle in 2007. Knight­ley’s de­but as the bold per­son­al­ity saw her in noth­ing but pearls, pout­ing – yes, that pout – with a bowler hat pressed against her dé­col­letage. Nei­ther had ever done a commercial be­fore. “I re­mem­ber Joe came to present his idea to me and he brought the hat that I would wear at the be­gin­ning of the film as an of­fer­ing!” she shares. “I like the idea of work­ing with her in the role of that head­strong Parisian woman for Chanel, and Keira por­trays her beau­ti­fully,” re­veals Wright. “She is a muse.

She is ex­cep­tional.”
