See Keira Knightley's beauty evolution...
A classic Brit beauty like few others, Keira Knightley always nails it when it comes to the red carpet hair and makeup game.
With her English rose complexion (there’s always a touch of pink blush on the cheeks) she’ll regularly up the ante with bolder lip colours or smoked out eyes for a premiere or big awards ceremony.
When she first came onto the radar in 2002’s Bend It Like Beckham, Keira’s look was all about that blonde crop and those abs. We wished we were her, she was so damn cool, and she’s been ahead of the beauty trend pace ever since.
From the ear cuffs she sported at the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, to the grungier beauty style she’s enjoying in 2016, Keira always goes edgy with her cool hair and makeup combos.
And if she isn’t going edgy, Keira’s a Queen at pulling off an oh so pretty look, too. Just see her Alice band, left, at the 2015 Oscars. Never has one woman shown such a strong commitment to sparkly hair accessories and, more importantly, managed to pull them off without looking like a 12 year-old. Surely that art alone makes this beauty file remarkable?
Whether you’re looking for wedding hair inspo, or just fancy a browse of some of the prettiest plaits and up-dos out there, Keira is your go-to girl for truly A-list glamour.
So, in no particular order of gorgeousness, here are Keira Knightley’s best beauty moments?
A pink pout and an embellished plait for the 2015 PGA Awards.
The back view of Keira’s pretty plait is as lovely as the front.
Keira’s side swept curls show off that cool pearl earring at the Hollywood Film Awards in 2014.
Keira’s half-up do made headlines at the 2015 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards thanks to its perfectly dishevelled edge.
Another pitch perfect up-do and rose lip combo at the 2015 Golden Globes.
Ughh the back view! Accessorised with a dazzling Chanel feather hair clip.
Remember this Keira look? She sported our dream feathered crop at the 2004 Hollywood Film Festival.
And what about this golden glow from the London premiere of Pride and Prejudice in 2005?
And of course, these were the abs we all wanted in 2003, when the young starlet was on the red carpet in jeans and a crop top promoting her new Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.
A hot pink lip and a side-swept up do made for a perfect glam combo at The Imitation Game premiere in 2014.
She doesn’t just do neat up-dos, you know? Keira loves a messy blow dry as much as the next A-lister.
All those period dramas have definitely influenced Keira’s beauty style, evidenced in this ringlet style from February 2008.
At the Anna Karenina LA premiere in 2012, Keira worked another twisted up-do, this time with a hotter pink pout.
Isn’t it great when the wind aids your new soft blow dry? Keira’s side swept waves at the October 2014 premiere of The Imitation Game were just perfect.
Pirates Of The Caribbean hair. That is all.
From long cinematic waves to a short and sharp bob, Keira really does pull off every style.
We just can’t… Even in 2002’s Bend It Like Beckham, Keira Knightley was SUCH a beauty icon.
