In a series of new photos from Interview magazine, Keira Knightley isn’t wearing a shirt—or anything, besides high-waisted black pants and lacy gloves—but she looks very, very relaxed.
The photo was shot by famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier, whom the 29-year-old interviewed for the accompanying article.
In the article, she recalls one of the most important tips he shared with her about posing for the camera.
“You said something really interesting to me on the shoot: ‘You have to relax your face, because that’s what good movie acting is, a relaxed face. It’s the same thing as having pictures taken,’” she recalled.
The French photog went on to explain “the more you relax…”—but she interjected before he could finish his point.
“You’re absolutely right,” the cover girl said. “It’s very funny, because no photographer has ever said that to me before and made the kind of connection between the two things.”
Well—whatever tips he had to share definitely worked. Keira looks absolutely stunning in all of the black and white portraits!
