It’s a hard life for Keira Knightley. She regularly stars alongside some of the most handsome men alive on the big screen and when she’s not busy doing that she also gets to play the lead role in super glamorous Chanel ads.
Chanel’s latest campaign for their Coco Mademoiselle fragrance features the British actress riding around Paris on a slick motorbike, attending a photoshoot, seducing her good-looking photographer, before slipping off again and driving away into the distance. The mini-film, which has been shortened to form a television advert, was directed by Atonement director Joe Wright.
The film sees Keira take on the role of a powerful heroine, but she admits she wasn’t sure what the finished product would look like. She said: “Nobody said exactly what it was going to be like. I knew that it was something about a motorbike, and I knew it was going to be beige, and they said: ‘sort of catsuit'”.
Watch this smouldering three minute film to make up your own mind.
