Keira Knightley in Rodarte at the Empire Awards: tragic or cute?


The Empire Awards were held last night in London, and some interesting people came out. I’ll be covering the (hot) dudes from the ceremony in a moment, I just wanted to talk about some of the girls right now. I suppose Keira Knightley was the closest thing to A-list at the show, and she looked like she knew it too. That’s what her face says to me “I can’t believe I’m here, I’m so ABOVE this.” Of course, her face also says to me “I need to detox and eat something” so maybe I’m just reading too much into faces this morning. The dress is Rodarte Fall 2011 RTW collection – I’m having difficulties seeing beyond the unflattering beige to actually look at the design of this thing. All in all, it’s not the worst thing Keira’s ever worn, but it’s not really good, either. And her face! Yikes. Do you remember how fresh and pretty Keira used to look? Don’t even try to pull the “She looks the same!” card. This girl is dealing with something that is harming her physically.



Next: Lily Cole. When we last heard from Lily, she was boning David Gandy. For real. And when I put up some recent photos of her, her defenders were all “You picked the worst photos! She’s prettier than that!!” Um, really? This is how she chose to present herself at the Empire Awards. Yellow Prada, headband, vague expression. And this is Gandy’s type? Ugh.



And lastly, my favorite – Noomi Rapace! She’s the original Lisbeth Salander in the Swedish adaptations of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and the other two books. I love Noomi, and I love how pretty and girly she is in real life. I like her little black dress!

    It’s ok. She looks better with sleeves, it hides her ED more.

    Good loooooord would it kill kk to stand the F up?!?! I am so annoyed by her. Just stand up, that is all I ask. You don’t even have to smile, you strange skin-and-bones bitchface. But for heaven sake, stop with the slooped shoulders and forward leaning neck.
    I like lily Cole tho. She is original. And at least she does not look like she would be more comfortable crawling in on her hands and knees like kk!

    Keira looks scary-skinny. Not to mention, the way she poses-both feet straight forward, eyes glazed, head jutting, shoulders slumped…It is like someone took a 13 year old with low self-esteem and dropped an oversized Rodarte gown over her head.

    Her skin is fairly clear, and she still has hair, so I’m guessing pills or perhaps c*ke. Crack or meth would have jacked up the skin by now, and she should be losing hair with the bulimia or anorexia. Unless she’s already lost most of her hair and we’re just used to seeing her with thin hair, her hair looks basically the same, if poorly styled. According to my stylist, your hair, your skin, and your nails indicate how well you take care of yourself-not the style or the colors, but the health and thickness of the hair, the tone and clarity of the skin, and the health of your nail beds are all excellent indicators of ED or substance abuse.

    vanilla dress!

  5. brin says:

    Hideous! I hate this dress and she looks awful in general.
    Noomi looks good….I thought she was Tina Fey for a split second!

  6. serena says:

    She looks likes crap. Seriously. Like she was up after a night of ferocious drugs. And what with that dress, it has the “old lady” effect.

  7. poppy says:

    the nude is so boring. i guess when you never see sunlight you want to emphasize your complete paleness and lack of circulating blood.
    the shoulder situation of that dress is very very unfortunate. embarrassingly unfortunate.
    as mentioned above, her posture is piss poor.
    maybe when the head weighs more than the body supporting it it can cause that slump. even her eyelids are too heavy for her emaciated bones.
    the stripper platforms need to die already but noomi is great outside of those ugly ugly shoes.
    don’t even know the other chick but like the yellow prada. the headband is another story, a wtf story. she’s also on the verge of poor posture.

  8. Crash2GO2 says:

    Her (Keira’s) posture is horrible, her hair is lank and her makeup is terrible. And yes, the dress is awful. But honestly, put some color on her, have her stand up straight and put a bright expression on her face and she would look like a well person. As it is, perhaps she is in character to play a consumptive?

  9. Keira’s hair looks EXACTLY like mine at this very moment. and this is not a compliment.

    1. I REALLY don’t think Keira is into drugs, she’s too smart to start with that shit but i do think she probably has some form of eating dissorder, she’s still beautiful facially (besides tha palour) but she is WAY to thin i remember her in the First Pirated of the Caribbean film and she looked so gorgeous and had a great body.

    2. Lily Cole… She is just so bizzare looking, i don’t want to sound like i’m hating on her but it’s just baffling to me how she became a top model she looks like an alian and her ginger hair was her best asset… so she does it Kardashian black SMH

    3. Noomi’s Louboutin’s are hot.

  12. spic says:

    I never found her beautiful. But I used to think she was interesting, she used to be charming in her own way and I had the impression there was some personality she could work on. I was expecting her improvements due to the fact I had the impression she is smart.
    However, in her latest job I had to change my mind. She looks careless both in movies and in red carpets situations, her acting is unimpressive, the small defects she had and helped her in defining her style (teeth, flat chest and shoulder posture, for example) are now becoming more and more important and embarassing. Besides she always gives the impression she urgently needs a shower.
    Overall I don’t find anything attractive and charming in her person anymore.

  13. sasa says:

    I think Keira is beautiful but here she looks like she just doesn’t care.

    Lily is a very cool chick, even if that hair color is truly horrific on her. Watch her in Dr. Parnassus. She’s weird in a good way.

  14. kathug says:

    keira needs to eat something stat!

  15. Tiffany says:

    I love the Louboutin and hope they never go out of style. If you wore some, you’d change your mind about “stripper” shoes. They are glorious works of art! I have 14 and LOVE them. Not strass though, those are easily 3k-all the bling!

    Wore some last night-heaven!

  16. Becca says:

    What happened to Keira’s face (and posture)?? It looks like she just rolled out of a hospital bed.

  17. curmudgeon says:

    Lily should have stayed red.

  18. samihami says:

    “Good loooooord would it kill kk to stand the F up?!?!”

    She can’t. She’s too weak from hunger.

  19. k says:

    Some people are prettier in video (motion) than in stills.

  20. Sasha says:

    Kiera looks ill, she used to be a pretty girl but now she looks like she has a big issue.

    Noomi is so cool, i just love her! Down to earth clever woman. And she looks really good. It is a shame that someone is making a remake of Millenium, the original with her is perfect.

    Lily or chucky girfriend’s, is too ugly for me. And that look is awful. i think she is always trying to hard to be clever and different, but fails a lot. Her last interview was like “Pay more buy less….and talking about capitalism a top model? yes, right. i am not buying that. Is too snob for me, probably fine for British. Can you believe she is having a fling with Jude Law? God, now Sienna is a brat but at least is pretty.

  21. jen34 says:

    Ironically, I rented Pirates of the Caribbean 1 & 2 over the weekend. Keira was beautiful in the first one, but looked awful in the second. Even my husband noticed, and he never notices such things.

  22. gigi* says:

    She looks exhausted and dirty…

  23. Ally says:

    I think Rodarte are way overrated. Their runways are interesting, but the clothes always look ill-fitting, strange and unflattering on actual women, even emaciated movie stars.

  24. OtherChris says:

    I may be weird, but I think this Lily girl is beautiful. She has such an interesting face.

  25. Gary says:

    Absolutely correct about Noomi Rapace, lovely woman wearing a cute dress. I think Keira is a wonderful actress, and she always looks beautiful, but she does seem to be slouching in this outfit; wonder why.

  26. blah says:

    @ 25
    She always looks beautiful? Where? Body? Legs? Shoulders? Boobs? Hair? Eyes? Nose? Mouth?
    Honestly I don’t think so.

  27. ROBI 6 says:

    Keira is not a classic beauty, this is clear.
    The problem is that apparently she doesn’t have other distinctive qualities such as allure, or class,or elegance, distinction, glamour, sophistication, originality, outstanding education / personality / brain, or charme, funny attitude or whatever sometimes can make the difference and turn someone who is not beautiful according to the normal criteria into someone unique, unforgettable and irresistible.

  28. Ron says:

    Looks like she sut the shoulders out of Granny Knightleys dress.

  29. Victoire says:

    Lily looks great. But Keira looks ugly… I can’t find any other word =( bad ?

  30. fiona says:

    LOL@ could be a trick. @jen34, your anecdote is an example of coincidence, not irony.

  31. Isabel says:

    Crap, we’re naming our daughter Keira…she’s due to arrive April 25. We’re not naming her after Keira Knightley, of course, but it still bums me out when KK looks like a cracked out mess.

  32. jen34 says:

    @#30 (can’t read the name)
    I stand corrected. Thank you.

  33. LL says:

    i do think kk gained weight, her face and arms look fuller, about the way she standing maybe she just inherited a bad gene from her parents.

  34. Jess says:

    Yay Noomi!

  35. Dea says:

    She has done buccal fat removal and of course the nose surgery but the buccal fat removal has changed a lot her appearance. Thats why her face looks weird at all times. She can not even smile naturally.

  36. Alix says:

    Keira’s dress would be cute in an actual color; the only tragic thing is her hair.

  37. Hmmm says:

    Looks like heroin chic to me. How vacuous the stare and stance. Hellooo, Keira, are you in there, honey?

  38. chris says:

    Tragic. Or frumpy. I usually like Keira’s style but this is really boring and ill-fitting. I actually like the colour on her though.

  39. kikay says:

    KK looks like the coke out zombie from the walking dead series!LOOOL

  40. Paige says:

    Lily Cole rocks. And she looks like an alien.

  41. normades says:

    Keira looks like a skinny rumer willis

  42. marie says:

    Her look is starting to get pretty tired. Like she is always so art house that a contemporary style would be refreshing. She is 26 so shake it up and wear something bright and fun.
