Keira Knightley gave us all a major Pirates of The Caribbean throwback moment in her latest ensemble. 

On Tuesday 14 March, the 37-year-old actress attended the Boston Strangler premierr at the Museum of Modern Art in New York wearing an avant-garde corset dress which wouldn’t look out of place in the film which made her a household name.

The goth-glam black puff-sleeve dress hails from Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood’s Spring/Summer 2023 collection, and features a sweetheart neckline, crystal embellishment and period-drama worthy lace-up detailing. 

Styled by Leith Clark, the award-winning thespian completed the outfit with a Jimmy Choo bag, and dazzling necklace from Sophie Bille Brahe. Keira donned the eponymous jeweller’s ‘Coeur de Tennis’ necklace. Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, the fine jeweller was raised with a deep respect for craft and storytelling.

For this special piece, Bille Brahe reminisces the first time her mother took her to the Opera Garnier in Paris, "The memory of this magical night at the opera still runs in her veins. She left her heart on the stage that night." A reworking of the brand’s signature tennis necklace, the necklace Keira wore features extravagant heart shaped diamonds and is handmade in Italy from 18K yellow gold featuring a total of 10.99 carats of diamonds.

After training as a goldsmith, Sophie graduated from London’s prestigious Royal College of Arts with a masters. "I want each piece to tell its own story. It is my hope that the jewellery I create will be treasured and passed down through generations to come," Sophie explains of her collections. She returned to Copenhagen in 2011 to establish her jewellery brand, which is now sold in some of the world’s most esteemed luxury and fine jewellery spaces and stores, from Dover Street Market to Net-A-Porter.
