Keira Knightley recently opened up about her 2007 acting hiatus. After filming “The Duchess”, the actress felt the need to step back from the paparazzi and have some time for herself. She had almost no private life after “The Pirates of the Caribbean”‘s success, which bought her to a boiling point. “There was a time when the price of photographs were going up for (famous) women in any state of undress or mental turmoil or anything. The men who get paid for taking these pictures were getting incredibly hostile – nearly violent – and we’re talking about packs of about 20 of them, shouting at me, spitting at me, trying to pick fights with every guy you’re out with, in order to produce a picture and get a lot of money. And it was getting particularly nasty. The price of everybody’s head was going up. Some people went the legal route. And I ran … I’d hit a wall and needed to step back in order to learn the things I needed to learn.” Knightley says she took the time to read and “look out the window”. It would be a pity if she decided to pull something similar these days, because the actress looks better than ever in cat eye Ralph Lauren sunglasses and a Mary Katrantzou midi dress.

A great fan of Ralph Lauren sunglasses, Keira Knigtley looked darling in a button down Orla Kiely dress, Tabitha Simmons heels and Ralph Lauren cat eye shaped shades. Unfortunately, her premiere of Anna Karenina was postponed because of hurricane Sandy, which is “scheduled” for the same date. We don’t fear that whenever the premiere is, it will be spectacular, as any movie showing Knightley as a Russian lover must be. Meanwhile, the slender 27 year old can take pride in her covering W Magazine on its 40th anniversary this month, accompanied by Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara and Mia Wasikowska, each with her own cover representing a past decade. Knightley, who represents the 2000s, admitted that modern fashion is a bit unfriendly, referring to skinny jeans and micro minis. The actress said: “I’ve been known to wear both, but on some days it seems like they were invented to make you feel bad about yourself.”
