With London Fashion Week keeping bloggers and writers busy, it’s easy for some news-worthy items to get swept under the carpet.

However, when the bit of news you’re referring to is English rose Keira Knightley fronting the October cover of American Vogue, you know that’s not going to happen. Especially when aforementioned cover star is wearing Chanel – and looking rather smouldering may we add!

The lace dress on the cover screams Anna Karenina (the film Keira is promoting) but the gloves/sleeves – whatever you want to call them – give the look a bit of a modern, contemporary, and somewhat space-age feel to it. It shouldn’t work, but it does, right?!

The editorial images are beyond brilliant too – shot by Mario Testino and styled by Grace Coddington, they showcase some of the finest Haute Couture items out there right now, and show Keira in a whole new light. We never knew she was capable of striking such fierce BINTM-worthy poses!

Oh, and we should probably mention there are some hunky pictures of Jude Law in the editorial too… enjoy!
