Keira Knightley’s New Chanel Ad (Video)

Keira Knightley Chanel Mademoiselle campaign

Following on the heels of Blake Lively’s handbag campaign for Chanel, Keira Knightley is starring in a teaser video for the commercial of the brand’s Mademoiselle fragrance.

The 40-second clip was directed by Joe Wright, with whom Knightley already worked while shooting Pride & Prejudice, and shows the actress channeling an elegant superhero, wearing a beige catsuit and lounging around a motorcycle.

“Nobody said exactly what it was going to be like,” she says in the video. “I knew that it was something about a motorbike, and I knew that it was going to be beige, and they said, ‘Sort of catsuit,’ and I went, ‘OK.’ It was completely unexpected. It’s a Chanel superwoman, I think.”
