Keira Knightley on her childbirth essay: ‘I absolutely did not shame anybody’

The BFI 62nd London UK Premiere of 'Colette' held at the Cineworld Leicester Square

Here are some photos of Keira Knightley at Thursday night’s premiere of Colette, as part of the BFI London Film Festival. Keira wore this rather interesting Chanel gown… or is it a two-piece? The thing about this is that I feel like either part would have made a stunning dress, but put together… it sort of looks off-kilter a little bit?

Honestly, I doubt Keira is even really on Kate’s radar. Palace sources might have sniffed – “Keira’s comments were simply for attention” – but I doubt Kate really cares one way or the other. And for what it’s worth, Keira’s comments weren’t simply for attention – she had a point about society and mommyshaming and all of that, she just made her point poorly. Incidentally, at this premiere, Keira was asked about the essay, and she
