How to Look as Edgy-Glam as Keira Knightley IRL
On a normal day, it's hard not to stare at Keira Knightley — and on the 2015 SAG Awards red carpet, it was impossible not to drool. OK, a bit dramatic, I know, but the mum-to-be mastered the modern bedhead and smokey eye style while keeping it polished enough to go with a gala gown. If you've already pinned her style to your Saturday night inspiration board, then let me take you one step further by offering up exclusive tips from the hair and makeup pros who created this look.
"I have a background is fashion and runway makeup," explained Chanel Makeup Artist Kate Lee on how she dreamed up Keira's face chart. "The most amazing thing about this [Erdem] dress is the colour, so I didn't want to do anything that would clash. Also, she is pregnant, so I didn't want to do anything too outlandish. But I wanted to make her look like the rock star she is. So we went for a warm, grey smokey round eye — rather than rather than elongated one." When it came to hair, Ben Skervin for Vidal Sassoon went with a Brigitte Bardot-influenced half-up, half-down look that he felt was a "boho-chic style to complement the dress."
