Keira Knightley in Valentino at the ‘Begin Again’ premiere: flattering or fug?


Here are some photos from last night’s NYC premiere of Begin Again, formerly Can A Song Save Your Life? That’s the film starring Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. And douche lord Adam Levine, who was also at the premiere. Let’s talk fashion! I LOVE Keira Knightley’s Valentino gown. If you look closely, those gold birds are really well-done. They’re not just cheap-looking appliques. I love this dress! Oh, and in case you’re worried about Keira’s singing, it’s not that bad.


Mark Ruffalo seemed like he was in great mood, which he probably is often enough. Mark’s date for the premiere was his son Keen Ruffalo, who is probably about 12 years old? He’s a cutie. Keen looks like his mom, I think.


And finally, here’s Adam Levine, who came with his fiancée Behati Prinsloo. Behati is a well-known model, she’s one of the Victoria’s Secret runway models, but her body looks so different here. Has she always been this thin? Or has she lost weight ahead of their wedding, which is supposed to take place in the next month?

    I don’t like the seaming down the sleeves of Keira’s dress. It could have been done more discreetly. And yes, Behati Prinsloo has been this skinny, and actually skinnier if you Google it. It’s sad how many VS models have been clearly anorexic at some point during their VS careers.

    • Sisi says:

      yeah the sleeves are only thing I don’t like either. Maybe it should have been a different fabric.

    • Patricia says:

      I agree about the sleeves. That is an AMAZING dress in every other way. I’m also a major sucker for beautifully rendered birds of any kind. But the seam on the sleeves… Surely that could have been done in a better way?

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I’m not crazy about that dress. I think she probably looked pretty, but those are bad pictures.

    • Rice says:

      Yeah. Have to agree with you Good Names.

      I absolutely love Mark Ruffalo! He was the main reason why I liked “13 Going on 30″. And, IMO, he is the best Hulk since Bruce Banner (I’m showing my age LOL!). Is it just me or does his son Keen look like a Jolie-Pitt?

  3. Lou says:

    Pretty voice. And pretty dress!

  4. Godwina says:

    Love that dress.

  5. TG says:

    Why is that douce in this movie? I don’t want to are it because of him. Maybe he isn’t in it very much though. He is so skinny and ugly and the just radiates douche.

    • Frankdiabetes says:

      I just saw this last night- he pretty much plays himself in the film. They needed a douchey, arrogant rock star type person, and they got one. It’s not actually too bad, you’re sort of meant to hate his character anyway.

  6. DavidBowie says:

    I like her voice…the dress? Meh.

    • QQ says:

      I’ll take the reverse of what you’re having… That thin reedy actress baby voice thing reminds me of Paltrow trying to sing

  7. qwerty says:

    Meh, it’s always the same look with her.

    Behati has always been one of the skinniest VS models.
    Here a pic from a year ago for example
    Lots of pics of her walking around the NYC off-duty show her skinny frame. With most of the VS models I’m actually willing to believe that they have a rather strict but healthy diet with lots of exercise & a persiod of hardcore training just before the show… except for Behati, I’m pretty sure she just lives on cigarettes and coffee. Her teeth at one of the last year’s galas were terrible.

  8. Gine says:

    Ooh, I really like that dress.

  9. Faye says:

    I think Kiera’s dress is cute! A little quirky but very much her style.

    Kiera is one of my favorite actresses. Talented, pretty low key, no scandals or stupid proclamations in the media. Just does her job and keeps her head down.

    I came here for the photos of Ruffalo..
    Levine looks douche-y as usual.

  11. hannah says:

    Mark’s son is in the movie :)

  12. Chinoiserie says:

    The dress is not bad, but I do not know. Maybe if the birds were smaller and there were more and they were blue they would not look so tacked on.

  13. AlexandriaTheGreat says:

    I’ve noticed that the douchier the boyfriend, the skinnier the girl is, or gets, during their *relationship*. Is it due to the drama these types of guys cause with their bullsh*t? Or do they just happen to prefer the most diminutive partner possible to make them *feel* manly. Hmmm…

  14. kimber says:

    Her dress looks like she got it from a Kohl’ s sale.

  15. Hmmm says:

    Not really a Keira fan, but I’ll go see it for Ruffalo. I bet he is smiling because the Avengers shoot is really going well. He has been posting pictures on his twitter and tumbler. LOL, naughty Hulk!

  16. Jaderu says:

    Love ya Keira (My favorite Elizabeth Bennet!) but Lordy!! That dress from a distance looks like Valentino meets Duck Dynasty!
    Mark is lovely as always.
    Levine…quit getting in my eye-line. Yuck.

    • Disingenuous says:

      Serious? No way, Jennifer Ehle was the single best ever. She got the rhythm of their dialogue just right too. Joe Wright’s adaptation was deliberately not authentic. The scene where KK and MacFayden are in their nightgowns would be incredibly scandalous in their time.

  17. Lucretia says:

    I like Keira’s dress better than Behati’s sack.

  18. Mel M says:

    Why do all douches think it’s cool to squint all of the time? (Beibs, AL) don’t they know they’re giving themselves crows feet!

  19. Sarah says:

    Ummm Behati has definitely not always been THIS skinny, she’s always been skinny, just not this skinny

  20. Liz says:

    The dress is questionable bu( Keira looks beautiful.

  21. meh says:

    That song is basically just one-liner cliches, one after the other. Whoever wrote that is really, really bad at songwriting.

  22. lrm says:

    I LOVE Keira’s dress! love. love. love. Also, she looks really great in that blue tone-I wouldn’t have thought that color would be so fabulous for her. I’ve never seen any photos of her in a tone such as that. Great eye makeup match, as well. (: She’s a beauty and, to me, becomes increasingly so as she gets older. She’s ‘filling out her beauty’, as it were. Plus, I like how she carries herself, with dignity, grace, class. lol. Ruffalo’s awesome as always. I can’t speak about Levine b/c he’s so awful. I think his ‘model’ things are all PR romances, personally.

    I love Keira’s eye makeup. I have to practice that look. That is all. :)
