Keira Knightley in maternity Erdem at the SAGs: lovely or poorly designed?


As many of you rightly claimed yesterday, Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t show up at the SAGs yesterday. It’s pretty depressing. What’s the use of all of that hustling and quote-dropping if you’re not even going to show up to the major awards shows? I would have loved to see Bendy’s face when Eddie Redmayne won. But no, Bendy was stuck in England, maybe working on Sherlock. His name was still included on all the presenters’ lists up until air time.

So, in Sophie Hunter’s absence, Keira Knightley carried the Erdem mantle. I sort of liked this on the E! red carpet, but in photos… I don’t like it so much. Nice stuff: I like that she went for a bolder, more red carpet look with her hair and makeup. She’s been looking very “I just washed my face and threw on some lip gloss” on other red carpets. I like the color of this Erdem too – the color alone looks beautiful on her. But no, I don’t like the dress all that much. I think it’s a mistake to put a peplum/ruffle on a pregnant girl. I’m also really tired of the sheer-bust panel trend. It never looks good. Ever.



And here are some other British girls, some of the Downton Abbey crew. I missed seeing Michelle Dockery (icy bitch Lady Mary) on the red carpet. But Laura Carmichael (Lady Edith) looked good in her Vionnet gown. I think Laura is a pretty woman, but they really make her look homely on Downton. Styling is everything! Joanne Froggatt wore a nice Honor gown. They still shouldn’t have won.

    I really loved Keira’s look. I love the colour on her. Plus, it was flattering and also looked comfortable. I thought her hair and make-up were on point as well.

    • Santia says:

      Really? I thought the color was nice, but not the fit; the makeup makes her look like someone else altogether.

      Also, am I the only one who has a problem with people referring to grown women as “girls”? It makes my teeth itch.

    • Jag says:

      I think Kiera looked gorgeous! Love almost everything about it, except nitpicking detail on the dress the way the side sheer panel sets in to the top. One of her best looks ever!

    • Olga says:

      Me too! Beautiful!

  2. Christine says:

    I love it actually – even is the cut is a bit meh but I’ll give her a pass for her recent horrendous red carpet looks

    • Rachel says:

      I don’t love it, but I thought it was a huge improvement, as you said, over her recent choices.

      Are ear cuffs becoming a “thing”? Both she and Emma Stone were sporting ear cuffs.

  3. mimif says:

    Weird. Keira looks like Angie Harmon in these pics.

    • T.C. says:

      I didn’t even recongize Keira, thought the post was mislabeled. It’s like she aged 12 years overnight, got lines on her forehead with her husband looking like her little brother next to her.

      My conspiracy theory is that her stylist and makeup artist are mad that she’s no longer the tiny glamorous waif and have no idea how to dress her. She needs to get with Kerry Washington or Angie Jolie-Pitt’s stylist who KNOW how to style pregnant women to look their usual hotness. I do like the color of the dress.

    I don’t Care about the DA People.. I’m sorry I just do Not

    Keira Looks So Much better in Color than those diaphanous Frilly amorphous pale baby homesteader things she often wears… and also with some weight on, her Jaw all the sudden isn’t jutting and her cheekbones can’t slice bread… and this isn’t even a good dress but that’s how GOOD color and weight look on her

  5. Carrie says:

    The color is beautiful. Cut is a little strange but maternity is like that sometimes.

  6. vauvert says:

    Keira I love you and purple looks good on you but those frilly layers… Just no. And can someone do her hair??
    Joanne is fantastic but the black dress is so boring, on the other hand Laura looks amazing!

  7. MeloMelo says:

    So there are Erdem dresses witout pockets.

  8. original kay says:

    is that Daisy?! wow, she looks so different.

    I love Downton.

  9. InvaderTak says:

    I loved it. The cut was good to me. The color is awesome.

    Joanna f. Looks like Laura linney to me.

  10. Asher says:

    Now I know why she doesn’t smile. Well I guess the smile is better than her tucking her cheeks between her teeth.

  11. Anonymous says:

    I like her in “classic” frocks when they look retro- Audrey-Hepburn-ish, not the GG’s one. I think it would be hard when you’re in that in-between stage–showing, but just barely. This is safe, the neckline detracts from the waist and the color is flattering. She looks healthy and glowing.

  12. EKP says:

    I really like it. If the sheer panel wasn’t there I think I would love it! (Although I would prefer it in black).

  13. smcollins says:

    I think she looked beautiful. Compared to how she has been dressing for these red carpet events I definitely consider this look a big win! She’s so stunning regardless, it almost doesn’t matter.

  14. Janet says:

    Froggatt’s dress is gorgeous and yes, they should have won.

  15. Sasha says:

    Wow Lady Edith looks beautiful. Just shows how transformative people’s looks can be!

  16. Jayna says:

    I love her whole look. Thumbs up.

  17. littlemissnaughty says:

    The hell? Why did I not know that Keira is pregnant? She must’ve announced it in December or something when work was killing me. Good gawd. I think they all look quite lovely.

  18. Lucy says:

    It may not be perfect, but Keira’s gown is a serious upgrade from the other gowns she has worn since award season started!!

  19. wow says:

    Wth has happened to my Keira?!? She looks like she has some kind of work done to her face. I hope not, but her face does look a bit different and not because of pregnancy.

    Anyway, she’s wearing the it color of the season, but As i don’t like the style of this dress for her.

  20. Valois says:

    I can’t believe DA is getting awards for that season.

  21. kri says:

    That color is gorgeous on her, but once again, the dress itself looks like a dog ate a tacky lace underlay (or a table-runner) and they just pinned it on a slip and threw it on her.

  22. Ashley says:

    I disagree with literally every style critique on this website, pretty much always. I’m wondering if I’m crazy.

  23. allons-y alonso says:

    Kiera’s look: I love it, actually.

    …..I’ll see myself out.

  24. Jess says:

    Does Keira’s pronounced underbite really not bother anyone else?? I can’t stand to look at her when she smiles and her bottom jaw sticks out a mile. She does’t appear to be able to close her mouth properly – her bite is all off. She should have had that fixed as a child! Gah. Hair and color look good though.

  25. Mary-Alice says:

    The last thing I could say about Laura Carmichael is “beautiful”. Charming, charismatic, yes. But beautiful? No.

  26. MerlinsWife says:

    Did anyone else notice that the design on Laura Carmichael’s gown is a fingerprint?
