Keira Knightley hits BAFTA red carpet in leather jacket

Keira Knightley is never one to stick to the conventional red carpet look, and at this year's BAFTA ceremony on Sunday night, she didn't disappoint. The 29-year-old showcased her blossoming baby bump in a glamorous Giambattista Valli floral embellished strapless gown for the glitzy event, but chose to toughen up her look by pairing it with a leather jacket.

Keira stepped out on the red carpet with Klaxons singer and rocker husband James Righton, but held her own in the stylish biker jacket as she kept out the winter chill, which saw Reese Witherspoon reveal that she had not anticipated how cold the evening would be.

The happy couple are expecting their first child together, confirming the news in December after Keira was spotted ditching her usually tailored style in favour of loose-fitting clothes.

 



The British beauty was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in The Imitation Game opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, however it was Boyhood's Patricia Arquette who took home the prize.

It's not the first time that Keira has chosen to push the envelope with her red carpet outfit choice. The Anna Karenina star previously saw jaws drop as she attended a charity gala, wearing the same dress she wore at her wedding.

The Teddington-born actress looked as stunning as she did on her big day, donning the strapless, pale pink Rodarte ballerina-style dress, adding a twist with a sheer overlay and cream embroidered beading on the collar and the cuffs.

Keira later revealed that the dress was now covered in wine stains as a result of having been worn so much.

"It's now got red wine spilled down the front because the last time I wore it my friend went like this" – she juts out her elbows – "and now it's everywhere," the actress told the Daily Telegraph in an interview.

"I didn't quite realise the extent of it until I got home. It's quite impressively splattered. But, hey, a good night is a good night and when a dress has had its time, maybe it's had its time."
