Keira Knightley at LAX

Posted on December 07, 2012

Keira continues to manage to look more chic getting off a transatlantic flight than most of us do heading out the door to work every day.

Let’s all agree to hate her.

  • I adore her sense of style. I need that coat. 

    • sanja_ramic

      That coat has been haunting my sartorial dreams since the last time I saw her wearing it, sadly it’s Jil Sander and thus WAY out of my price range.

      • lovelyivy

         Yep- even on ebay Jil sander is out of range, alas. Although sometimes I do wonder- who the hell is running to ebay to drop 500 bucks on a coat that you can’t try on, can’t see in person, and possibly can’t return? Does not compute.

        • JosephLamour

          Same goes for Kenzo. I almost got a jacket that I was willing to pay 250 bucks for, and the owner cancelled the auction cause that apparently wasn’t even close to what they wanted for it. 

        • MarissaLG

          I think there are a handful of super fashion-y women (and men!) (definitely not me) who will try on the coat at the store and then try to find it on ebay/sample sales/other places later on.

          • lovelyivy

             Ok- that makes sense. Seems like a lot of work, but comparison shopping I can understand.

  • teensmom99

    Actually this looks like many of us going to work (or –*mumble* –our younger colleagues) but this shows you what being skinny and tall does–it looks a lot better on her than on us and our colleagues.

  • Nicole Chubb

    You should see my mom board a plane. Full makeup, hair and dressed to the nines. She would never step off a plane and greet distant relatives and friends without looking her Sunday best. I get lectured for not doing the same.

    • When I was in a long distance relationship, I wore 40s vintage clothing for the flights to see the boy. It made our airport reunions quite romantic, plus added an extra element of relief when naked time came around. 

      • That is an awesome story.

    • TRSTL

      My Grandmother drilled the same edict inot me.  I am more relaxed but always, always, always fly wearing a blazer.  Usually with a dark jean that is forgiving for all the sitting, ect. The breat thing about wearing a classic navy or gray blazer to fly is it has extra pockets inside for items and always comes in handy at my destination.

    • Introspective

      Your mom and my mom are cut from the same cloth! She’s no stranger to her best purse and hat, and heels for when she walks off the plane so my family and any old friends she may run into at the airport (we’re from a small town so that’s highly likely) know she’s doing well for herself…

  • Dear Keira: “To me, you are perfect.”

    • NinaBoo

      God, I love that movie.

      • That movie makes me do the ugly cry, especially the Emma Thompson scene when she’s alone in her bedroom. Gah. 

        • I adore that scene too – mostly because I adore Emma Thompson and feel she can do no wrong – but overall I find the movie way too sentimental, and with a few too many older man/younger woman pairings. And I’m always disappointed in Laura Linney’s character. Do the hot guy, for god’s sake!!

      • Judih1

        What movie is that?

        • Love Actually. 
          Honestly (and I know I’m in the minority) My least favourite movie in the world. I like to think that Andrew Lincon’s character in the Walking Dead is the same as the Love Actually character he played because he deserves to be in a hopeless, zombie-filled, doomed world. 

          • MRC210

            You’re not alone.  It was just so relentlessly twee, except for the elderly rocker and even he turned twee at the end.   And every intimate proposal, kiss or revelation had to be enacted in public as though it couldn’t be real if it happened with no-one looking.  Although the PM singing a carol was cute, I admit.  But still twee. 

          • judybrowni

            So the too long sweater-sleeves is back?

            Good to know, because I’m short.

          • BrooklynBomber


          •  Yeah but you know what?  It’s a MOVIE… not a documentary.  I love it to pieces and tolerate the parts that aren’t knocking my socks off.  What gets to me the most, though, is the actual real people (i.e. not actors) at the airport greeting each other.  When I go to the airport that’s what I”m looking for – reunions just outside the security gate, or down at baggage claim.  For this reason I keep my jacket pockets stuffed with Kleenex every time I am at the airport.

          • out for a walk

            I agree with you so much that liking your comment was not enough. Most movies I hate I can nevertheless understand why some people like them. Love Actually and The Hangover are the biggest exceptions that come to mind.

          • LA is just annoying, but The Hangover (and especially its sequel) are seriously GROSS.

          • Every relationship in that movie was non verbal, non conversational, non intellectual.  So it really should have been called “Lust, Actually.”  I left it wondering just what kind of relationship the doltish writer had with his wife, since he didn’t believe heterosexuals actually talk to one another when they’re falling in love.

  • Agreed. 

  • Are those ankle boots or knee-high? I can’t tell. 

  • stephkat

    $2,000 “bowling bag”.  What a world.  But she looks great.

    • Yeah, $2000.00–*sigh*

      • But it’s not like she paid for it.

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      To my eyes this looks more like a Doctor’s bag…a Bowling bag would be taller and narrower. I don’t think those people at Burberry have ever gone bowling.

    • J. Preposterice

      I covet that bag so much, though.  So, so much.  If only I didn’t need to save for my children’s college educations? 

  • MilaXX

    This one I like

  • another_laura


  • kittenwithaquip

    Slap a snood or hat on top of that head and I would have agreed with you– I can’t consider her hate-worthy chic when her hair looks like she just rolled out of bed.

    • Well, she kind of did. The flights leave London at night and arrive at LAX in the morning. And I’m sure she flies 1st class, so she gets to put on the free PJs and sleep in the little ‘pods’ – not like the rest of us peasants back in coach, trying to sleep in our cramped seats, awash in our own filth.

  • kimmeister

    Meh, that sweater and skirt have nothing to do with each other.

  • Andrew Schroeder

    What a bitch.

  • yeah well when you fly first class it’s not too hard to do that. I got bumped to business class on a transatlantic flight and I had a three course gourmet meal, a chair that went all the way flat so I could sleep, comfy pillows and blankets, and access to a full bar for free. 

    They probably have a full day spa in first class. 

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      back before 9/11 and the energy crisis when gas was cheap, i got bumped to first class on a 777 once.  oh my it was ridiculously comfortable and i got drunk on champagne!

    • ankali

       Oooooh, I love those seats! We got upgraded once to a first class that had those seats, and my husband had to restrain me after awhile from making it go upright to flat and back again over and over.

  • That’s the same black coat she was wearing the other day. I love it. But yes, let’s hate her. 

  • She’s wearing tights. Now does she not freeze, or more importantly not rip them on the flight?

    • Because they give you cashmere blankets in 1st class. The ripping part I don’t know, but there are fewer hazards up there as well.

    •  Last couple of flights I have been on were totally over-heated. I ended up stripping off everything I could while staying decent.

    • Unvacuous

      And unsurprisingly, it’s actually not that cold here in LA.  Though she must have arrived early as that is the most empty I’ve ever seen LAX

  • Yes, stylish. But it helps she’s a walking clothes hanger…need that “jumper” Ms Knightly

  • Trisha26

    No agreement necessary…I already do. And she looks a mess.

  • GorgeousThings

    Actually, I really like that she doesn’t feel the need to HOLD HER BURBERRY BAG RIGHT IN FRONT OF HER SO EVERYONE CAN SEE IT’S A BURBERRY BAG!

    That’s rather refreshing, don’t you think?

  • Louise Bryan

    Sorry, but nope.  I think she’s cute, and a good actress.  I’ve liked her since “Bend It Like Beckham.”

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I’ve had a girl crush on her since the first ‘Pirates’ film.

  • DeTrop

    What no entourage?  For that alone, I love her.  Or am I missing something?

    • I thought the same thing!  How damn refreshing!  And if they are there, at least they’re not in photographs.

  • fringebenefit


  • I love her, and I love that bag.

  • What?  This looks like she went on a blindfolded shopping spree at Goodwill.

  • nannypoo

    “Chic” does not come to mind.

  • well, i notice that airplane hair happens no matter who.

  • siriuslover


  • Cute enough, but I’m *really * digging that bag.

  • I don’t love the summery skirt but everything else is perfect for travel chic. Gorgeous bag.

  • I hate to admit that she’s growing on me. I had her on my Irrational Hate List for a long time because she seems to act with her neck, but she’s very pretty and a bit less annoying to me than previously.

    She looks cute here, although I don’t think the skirt and the jumper quite go together. 

  • Never.  She’s amazing.  

  • BrooklynBomber

    I’m in.
    And I want that sweater.

  • Mazenderan

    Is it me or is the whole combo (loose grey jumper, short floral skirt , black tights, black boots) quite 90s looking?

  • crash1212

    I love her. This is how I envision myself looking while traveling – as opposed to what I actually look like. The rich and genetically gifted aren’t like me.

  • Diana Martinez

    Really?  Come on.  She need a comb. 

  • guest2visits

    Not one hundred percent into the booties; but all in all a very pretty and casully chic look.
    Yes, I want the simple sweater and the coat too.  I feel bad that she’s getting snapped during her personal sojourns.

  • Call me Bee

    No–we don’t hate.  Covet.  Envy.  That’s what we do.  But not hate.  She’ just too cute to hate. 

  • marilyn

    I realize that the climate if very different in London and LA. But, the skirt does not work for me.  It is summery and flouncy, and the rest is winter.  Perhaps a nice pair of slacks, or a dark skirt, more in line with the rest of the outfit would have been ice.

  • I covet that bag.

  • I don’t really like what she is wearing – at all. Sweater and skirt make no sense together. Sorry. 🙁

  • Well I doubt she flew coach so there you have it

  • miagain

    I just can’t hate that girl… she is so lovely, and I am old enough to be her mother!!

  • I covet that Burberry bag. Co. Vet.

  • MarissaLG

    Here’s a question that the other BK’s might not have the answer to but I’m kind of curious- 

    When we see these starlets carrying the Most Expensive New Bag while running errands, or at the airport, is it just because they get sent all these bags and the designers just hope they’ll use them and the paparazzi will catch it? 

    Or are these orchestrated PR events, and Keira and her publicist/stylist/assistant know she is scheduled to wear this specific bag on this date at the airport, and was given the bag just for the event and she has to give it back when she’s done? Is it sometimes both? Neither?

  • It’s Keira Knightly; she would look more chic than any of us possibly could if she was wearing a hospital gown.  Please.  Talk about stating the obvious.

  • ccm800

    I’d rather eat. But good for her!  

  • decormaven

    The booties are a great choice here. Thank the heavens she is not bare legged- her hosiery elevates the look for me.

  • The droles are always there aren’t they?

  • It’s better you do a non administrative role because the administratives are buzy with fighting a nasty war,and it looks to be
    getting dirtiere by the moment.
      I would stick with artistic portrayals,albeit they don’t pay the big sterlings however the lasting karma of being Ideed as
    administrative would cost whatever advantages you might make plus probably more.
        Since you cut the groove artistically,stay with it,don’t complain about other doing shoot em ups.Weapons are never
    ez to live with

  • If they think of anything give them a dose of humour around the edges.No darling I’m too buzy for that but you are
