With films like “Atonement” and “Pride and Prejudice” on her resume, it’s clear that Keira Knightley loves period pieces. And last night she was hamming it up at New York City’s Public Theatre for the premiere of her latest historical film “The Duchess.”
She’s one of the most successful young actresses in the UK and earlier today Keira Knightley was the object of paparazzi attention at the London premiere of “The Duchess.”
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” hottie was looking fine in a strapless blue gown with lace accents on the neckline and hemline as she flounced around the red carpet outside of the Odeon Theatre in Leicester Square.
Keira Knightley is back on the set, currently filming her new movie The Duchess at the London Maritime Museum in Greenwich.
The movie's theme is told to be: "A chronicle of the life of 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire, an ancestor of Princess Diana who was alternately celebrated and reviled for her extravagant political and personal lives."
