When a haircut overshadows an upcoming movie premiere, you know that it’s celebrity news and gossip at its finest! British actress Keira Knightly recently showed off a straight, sleek new bob at the Chanel Spring / Summer 2011 show during Paris Fashion Week. She says she got the new do for herself, and not for a movie role, and look perfectly in place at the fashion industry event in Paris.
Her new movie, Never Let Me Go, based on the novel by Kazuo Ishiguro, is set to premiere at the BFI London Film Festival on Oct. 13, and the 25-year-old Knightley is excitedly awaiting the event. The independent film also stars Carey Mulligan and Andrew Garfield.
