But the actress has been making an equally stylish statement with her off-screen style while promoting the silver screen adaptation of the classic.
Channeling the rich glamour of Tolstoy’s flawed heroine — albeit with a little more restraint than the Russian socialite’s opulent furs and velvet coats — Knightley has wowed in dramatic dark gowns at the film’s red carpet events.
After tapping into the period film’s dramatic romance in a black shimmery gown at the Toronto Film Festival and in a lace Valentino couture gown at a screening in New York City last week, the 30-year-old lightened the mood while still nodding to the opulence of the film’s costumes in Erdem’s embroidered seafoam stunner at Wednesday night’s L.A. premiere.
The custom green gown featured intricate floral embroidery and a dramatic train — plus, pockets for a modern twist. Knightley finished off the look with an elegant but slightly undone twisted up-do, winged eyeliner and a pop of pink on her pout.
