Keira Knightley is winning raves for her portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet in "Pride and Prejudice." And she’s also getting major kudos for her elegant style statements on the red carpets, both at the L.A. premiere of "Domino" (wearing vintage Missoni) and the "Pride" New York premiere last week.
But even a spirited and stunning actress can be tripped up by a wardrobe malfunction. Knightley was reportedly posing at the New York "Pride" preem when her gorgeous red satin Calvin Klein dress faltered ever so slightly.
The bodice reportedly slipped just enough to show off a bit the actress’ left breast. Oh, dear. Not another Nipplegate. The Associated Press reported that photographers just snapped away and no one told her what happened. Hey, now Keira knows how Tara Reid felt.
Revealing photos of her "flasher" incident can be found on the Internet but we seriously doubt Knightley cares about such limited overexposure.
After all, she bared a breast in the October issue of Esquire. And she has also revealed that she bargained with "Domino" director Tony Scott on what she would expose in the film: She was willing to surrender two boobs, but refused to show her butt.
"I’m a woman, there’s no reason to it," she’s explained. We’re with ya on that, Keira.
